Tonight is jam-packed with fun stuff to do Downtown. The event I will be attending, weather permitting, is the Start Co. Lounge at the Tennessee Brewery. This is a chance to connect with creative types, innovators, tech enthusiasts and others who appreciate the entrepreneurial spirit that is brewing in Memphis. This weekend is also last call for Brewery Untapped. The Start Co. Lounge happens from 5:30 to 7:30 and the brewery is open until 9. Start Co. was our BBQ team sponsor this year. If any of my fellow Moody Ques want to join me, bring it on!
Tonight is also the first Peabody rooftop party of Tube Top Month, and from what I have been hearing a lot of people are really excited. A lot of ladies plan to have their finest tube tops on tonight. The band Hollywood will provide the entertainment. Doors open at 6, $10 to get in, ladies free until 7. Admission includes a buffet of pasta salad, deviled eggs, and fried chicken legs.
It’s a big night at AutoZone Park too. The game tonight vs. the Iowa Cubs (7:05 first pitch) is the CBS Sports Network nationally televised minor league game of the week. The Redbirds organization want to pack the park and show how much Memphis loves baseball. They are enticing fans to come with $3 Bud and Bud Light drafts, $2 popcorn, and $1 hot dogs.
There will be a Crop Hop 5K on Friday, June 20 at 6:30 PM to benefit the Memphis Farmers Market. Race will begin and end at the market pavilion. Details here.
Outta here for now. I hope the weather holds up this afternoon so I can get to the brewery.
