Friday morning update: Big neon sign, free yoga, and more

A neon sign complete with flames has been approved for a business in The Edge, even though it exceeds sign code specifications. Arnold’s BBQ will open between Floyd Alley and Monroe Avenue just west of Danny Thomas. The sign will be visible to the Madison Avenue side. It is one of the few businesses in Downtown Memphis with the entrance in an alley, and for that reason it was felt that the large sign was well justified.

Happy grand opening, YOGA! Your Inner Yogi at 500 S. Second will celebrate its grand opening Saturday with a full day of free classes. Here’s the schedule:

10:30-11:30am Gentle Flow w/Stephanie
11:45-12:30pm Beginners Yoga w/Libby
1-2pm Vinyasa Flow All Levels w/ Bridget
4-5pm Ashtanga Flow All Levels w/Caroline

Plus, from 6 to 9:30 that evening there will be a Mix & Mingle where you can meet the teachers. There will be wine, a DJ, giveaways, a 20 minute energy flow, and more.

Also on Saturday, South Side Supper Club will have an evening performance at the Ghost River taproom from 6 to 8.
