Saturday update

‘Scuse the brevity and any typos in posts the next eight days. During BBQ Fest week I am always in a time crunch.

There are dragon boat races on the mighty Mississippi today starting at 8:30. The event benefits St. Jude.

There’s a local music festival at Downtown Elementary today from noon to 11 PM presented by Brinson’s and a bunch of other people.

It’s a game-themed night at the Redbirds this evening, with GameTruck Memphis set up so fans can play video games. The band PXLS will play classic video game music at the plaza party prior to the game. As always, fireworks after the game on Saturdays. Gates open at 5, first pitch 6:35.

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus LIVE! is at the Halloran Centre tonight.

All right. That’s all the time I have for now. Off to the Farmers Market then over to Earnestine & Hazel’s to spread a little sunshine.
