Fri update: Club 152, Grizzlies watch party in Handy Park, Sunset Symphony, seats for military at Redbirds, USA Today article on Memphis

Breaking news: Club 152 has been allowed to reopen. It will be open as of 5 PM today following an agreement just signed in Environmental Court.

Yesterday afternoon, Mayor Wharton announced that there will be huge LED screens in Handy Park broadcasting tomorrow’s Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Game time is at 8 PM. The park would be a great place to be if you don’t have a ticket to see the game in person. Handy Park is at the corner of Third and Beale.

Meanwhile, over in Tom Lee Park, the final event of Memphis in May will take place. Sunset Symphony is the most laid-back of the Memphis in May events. Patrons are allowed to bring their own coolers and picnic baskets in, and you can bring blankets and sit on the grass. There are bands all afternoon, and when the sun sets, the Memphis Symphony Orchestra performs and then there are fireworks. If you don’t feel like bringing your own, food and beverages will be sold by vendors. Read the FAQ to find out what items you can and can’t bring in. This is a really good event for date night or for a family outing.

AutoZone Park and the Redbirds are honoring our military by designating 26 seats in the first three rows of section 106 for service members. Military will be able to purchase those seats at a 50% discount by showing their military ID. Row 1, seat A in that section will be wrapped in black with the POW/MIA logo. It will be marked “Reserved in Memoriam” and will remain permanently empty.
