Holly has reasons to celebrate 901 Day at Exposure at AutoZone Park. This year, however, 901 Day can’t be celebrated on 9/01 at the park, because they’re having the soccer exhibition match that day. So it will happen on August 30. Over 100 organizations will be there handing out information: everything from arts & culture, community organizations, fitness and sports organizations, organizations with volunteer opportunities, and social and entertainment organizations. If you have yet to find where you fit in as a Memphian, this is a day for you.
In addition to the organizations at 901 Day at Exposure, there will be a celebrity kickball game, Grizzlies-related entertainment, the Beale Street Flippers, food, frozen pops, and much more.

That’s it for now. Time to watch tutorials for a development environment I haven’t used in a few years to get back up to speed, then after that I will get out. I heard I missed a good time at the cornhole tournament at Max’s Sports Bar last Tuesday, so this evening I will head down there and grab a spot on the back patio where I can watch. Back tomorrow with more news.
