Thur update: Mpact Outlet, rooftop parties, Dempseys at Saucer tonight, Hollywood Disco contest, and more

Mpact Memphis will hold their Mpact Outlet program tonight at Pearl’s Oyster House at Main and Pontotoc from 6 to 8 PM. This is their monthly program where they lay out ways to get involved in Mpact’s volunteering and networking programs. There will be free giveaways as well. Free to members and those who join at the event; $5 for others. Pearl’s has some great seafood, so be sure to eat while you’re there.

Looks like good weather for rooftop parties tonight… the Weather Channel is predicting sunny with a 20% chance of rain, high 85, low 70. ’80s cover band Venus Mission plays the Peabody – $5 cover, free for ladies before 8 PM. Seems like the Peabody rooftop events have improved big-time this year. One week they had a free build-your-own slider bar, and the Nuh-Uh Girl told me another week they had a taco bar… and this was part of the regular admission, not the VIP section where there are additional hors d’ouevres.

Over at the Madison, Grace Askew with Groundspeak plays tonight. She and the band are described as “a little soul, folk, country, and a New Orleans sound.”

Post-rooftop, the Dempseys play the Saucer at 9:30. Their crazed rockabilly act is always fun to watch.

Over at the Red Rooster, the “Chicklette of the Week” who wins their “You’ve Got the Look” contest will win a Diamond Tennis Bracelet by Platinum Jewelers.

I’ll definitely hit the Peabody rooftop tonight. Most likely I’ll be at the Saucer afterward, but not for sure… I like to leave plans open for later. Maybe I’ll be flying the saucer, or maybe I’ll get silly like a goose, or maybe I’ll slim things down a bit. Maybe the evening will go to the dogs. I might even rock out with my cock out. One thing’s for sure though, I won’t be chillin’ like a villain.

Coming up this weekend, Hollywood Disco at Mulberry and Vance will have a contest. Whoever brings the largest group to the club this weekend will win a free party (no cover, cash bar, anytime except 10 PM-4 AM Friday-Saturday). Just tell Angie at the booth how many are in your party, and give her your name and cell number so she can contact you if you win. Winner will be called Sunday.

Eating a Frosty from Wendy’s as I type this… wonder how my health guru AL would feel about a Frosty and nothing else for lunch.  All right, that’s enough for now, back to work…
