Lots going on tonight

Lots going on tonight. Here’s a quick summary.

It’s Circa’s second anniversary party. From 6 to 8 they’ll have a reception in the atrium with music, and free wine, beer, and food. At 8 they will have a special dinner with proceeds to benefit Help the Least of These, a charity that helps the poorest people in Africa.

Bravo Memphis has their season opener tonight with a block party at Main and Huling – food, beer, wine, music, and the opportunity to learn about Bravo’s 2009-10 arts season with monthly networking and visits to different arts events. Open to the public. If you’re a young professional into the arts you should check this out.

Tonight is the mayoral debate on Channel 5. If you’re an AC Wharton supporter, there will be a Wharton watch party at Cafe Beignet on GE Patterson beginning at 6 PM.

The PRSSA is having a mixer on the rooftop of Pembroke Square tonight. Food, beer, wine. Anyone in PR, advertising, or marketing is invited to attend.

Elmo and the Shades play the Madison rooftop tonight. It opens at 5:30, $7 cover, cash bar and tapas menu.

Ladies get in free all night at the Red Rooster tonight. Gabby Johnson will be on stage. Bahama vacation giveaway.

Swelter plays the Saucer tonight. $3 cover, 9:30 start time. I just checked the CCC’s weekly Livin It Up newsletter and saw that they’re also having a mayoral debate watch party, starting at 7. At the Saucer? That’s interesting. Wonder how many lunkheads will walk in, see the debate on, and go, “D-uh, me want to watch ESPN.”

It’s Calhoun’s weekly poker tournament at 7. A lot of the people who would normally enter are going to be away this week, attending other events listed here… might be an opportunity for some new people to get in and avoid the sharks and have a good chance of winning. There are only 10 boxes available for play, so if you’re interested I recommend you get there by 6:30.

For the events listed above where there is complimentary food: Free food? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up.

My plan is to get to the Saucer about 5:30 and have a warm-up beer, then head to Circa, then to Bravo. I may make a stop on the Pembroke roof, since technically, I’m in marketing rather than IT in my current job.

Back to work… busy day.  Hope to see you out tonight!
