Following Memphis in May, Riverside Drive will be closed for two more weeks as the city implements a pilot project that will reduce car traffic to two lanes while increasing bike and pedestrian space. Once the street reopens, it will remain in that configuration for 12-18 months. More info here. Glad to see this additional step to make Memphis more bike-friendly, but I have to admit I don’t like it that no public input was sought before making this change.
Brass Door Bingo will be Thursday this week instead of tonight. 7:30 start time.
There’s a Groupon for Memphis Segway Adventures. You can get a $75 value tour on a Segway for only $39. There are also two-person and four-person options. Great way to learn about Downtown’s landmarks and history and maybe do some tube top watching too.
The Orpheum kicks off its summer movie series with a double feature Friday at 7 PM. Night of the Living Dead and Zombieland will be shown in honor of the annual zombie walk, which departs from Army/Navy Park in South Main at 6:30 sharp.
