Lots to do tonight. Let’s take a look at what’s going on…
The Main/Peabody Place block party is tonight, with live music by 2 bands and specials by many of the stores and restaurants within that block. Complete list of specials can be found here. Block party is from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. Ladies, it’s going to be an extremely hot day, so a tube top would be an excellent choice of attire to keep cool.
What to do after the block party ends? Well, there are two rooftop parties going on. Rusty Lemon with the Carolina Liars play the Peabody rooftop. Cover is $10 tonight, ladies free until 8 PM.
Over at the Madison, the Dempseys will play. $7 cover, cash bar, tapas menu.
An alternative to the rooftop parties is the first night of KIX 106 Country on Beale, with Bucky Covington and Randy Houser tonight.
What to do post-rooftop? Well, it will be a big night at the Red Rooster, because it’s their “You Got the Look” contest finale tonight where they will choose their “Chicklette of the Year.” Contest winner will receive a $1500 prize trunk including gifts from Wink Boutique, Sephora, Platinum Jewelers, Lansky126, Tan-n-Go, Nail Bar, Miller Lite, and more. Gabby Johnson will be on stage. $2.50 UV Vodka drinks, $2 longnecks. Ladies get in free all night. I’ll say it one more time – because of the weekly contests, the Rooster tends to have the best male/female ratios of any of the Thursday night parties.
Another option is the Flying Saucer, where White Noise takes the stage at 9:30, $3 cover, 70 beers on draft, 125 in bottles, pool, darts, waitresses in short skirts.
And, of course, there are other local bars in the area which are fun places to hang out after the rooftop parties… Silly Goose, Automatic Slim’s, Voodoo Room in the downstairs of Orleans on Front, and Bardog Tavern are all excellent choices.
More news to report later… not sure if I’ll have time to do a post after work, but if not, I’ll get it online tomorrow.
