The final event in the event in the Fall Concert Series happens tonight at the pocket park at 151 Madison across from the Brass Door. Tonya Dyson and Thomas Crivens will perform and beer will be available for purchase. 4-6 PM.

Happy Friday, YOGA! Downtown Yoga is holding free yoga classes all day today. They will be collecting donations for hurricane relief.

Memphis Pride Fest kicks off today at Handy Park near Fourth and Beale.

Don’t forget that Fridays in the fall are Fourth Bluff Dance Parties. From 6 to 9 this evening there will be a dance floor set up just west of the University of Memphis law school at 1 N. Front. The dance parties are free to attend. Beer and wine will be sold on site, and the Arepa 901 food truck will be there to sell food.

Tonight at South Main Trolley Night, Stock & Belle (387 S. Main) will have a meet and greet with Dil & Kali of The Ekata Collection. Ekata teaches refugee women how to make jewelry. At this event, two refugee women from Nepal will show off the skills they have learned. They will have a bead bar and will make custom pieces for you. Light refreshments will be served and the Sushicide Squad food truck will be outside.

Down the street at South Main Book Juggler (548 S. Main) there will be The End of Healing book signing. I’m just going to paste in the description from Facebook: “DR. JIM BAILEY has dedicated his career to empowering people to take charge of their health. But after working as a physician, professor, community health advocate, and healthcare researcher for ten years, he realized that his scientific papers on improving health care quality were not likely to reach the general public. For Americans to get safe, effective and affordable health care, they first had to know why and how they were getting scammed. An avid reader of novels and lover of the classics, Dr. Bailey became convinced that America needed a story to point the way to the true healing Americans need most.”
