Although I haven’t been able to do much lately, there are MANY events coming up shortly that I will be at and I am encouraging you to attend. Here… we… go.

Since Republic Coffee scored high again for votes in BOM, Republic Coffee will offer a $3 special menu for food and drinks on Thursday Oct. 11, all day. I’m sure I will stop by to check things out.

The Pink Palace Craft Fair, Oct. 12-14. Go! Just another event we attend every year. We discovered an excellent artist at this event, Robert Cornman. So far we have purchased four paintings from him,

Love the artwork.

and will be looking for more art from him this year at the Pink Palace Craft Fair. Go Friday! Why? Last year we attended Saturday and a cool painting by Robert had already been sold. Doh! Lesson learned.

The Goonies.

What? You heard me. The movie The Goonies will be presented at The Orpheum downtown Friday October 12th at 7:15 p.m. $7 for adults, $5 for children. Didn’t you grow up in the 80’s? If not, didn’t you “want” to grow up in the 80’s. Let me tell you children, IT WAS FUN! And who didn’t want to look for lost treasure and pirate ships as a kid? Get in on all the fun with Chunk and the rest of the pirate crew Friday October 12th at 7:15 p.m. Goonies never say die.

The Cooper Young Regional Beerfest. Saturday October 13th (my birthday) 1-5. $35 advance $40 (if avail. at door). I went last year. Great festival to hang and talk to the locals in the neighborhood. Plus GREAT beer. Go! Beer Fest!

Greenline Birthday Party – 10-13-2012 Memphis Greenline. Yeah, check out various area’s along the Greenline. Bikes, bands and food will be there. Will you?

Broad Ave. Art Walk. Saturday October 20th, 2-8 p.m. Another excellent event. We attend this event every year. Great food, music, beer, and art to purchase. It is so nice to walk down the street and stop in shops to look at art and chat with the artists. Make sure to check out Dan Spector at his studio Archicast. LOTS of “interesting” things in his shop. We usually buy one item every time we pop in.

Art doesn’t do it for you? How about more 80’s? Night Ranger performs at Southland Park in West Memphis, Oct 20th. Tickets are $15. You “know” you know all the words to “Sister Christian”.

River Arts Festival; Downtown, South Main, October 26th-28th. This year there will be a $5 admission charge. I’m cool with that. We attend every year. GREAT art will be on hand to purchase. Go!

Alright, I probably missed a few events. Let me know. If you are bored in Memphis in the month of October; you have no will to live 😉

See YOU here again soon. Cheers.
