May continues with more fun things to do this weekend in Memphis, including the largest barbecue cooking competition in the world! Whether you’re doing the barbecue thing or not, there’s plenty to do. Here are the five things you won’t want to miss.
Mother’s Day 2019 is Sunday, May 12. Here is a list of things to do with mom this weekend, and then a list of places to have brunch. Don’t forget to check out this weekend’s guide, too.
Mark your calendar. The Peach Truck is gearing up for another tour in Tennessee.
Each spring, more than 75,000 people descend on Memphis for the World Championship of Barbecue. We scoured the Grind City to find the most authentic barbecue joints you can sample during the event.
There are plenty of ways to make the most of National Bike Month here this May.
One way is by participating in the citywide Commute Challenge 2019. The initiative challenges employees at workplaces to use sustainable transportation options, while tracking their daily commutes.
The East Buntyn Historic District will host the Tenth Anniversary East Buntyn ArtWalk on April 27, 2019, with a rain date of April 28. The event features regional artists in an open-air bazaar of galleries set up in the front yards and porches of the historic east Memphis neighborhood. One hundred artists will show off watercolors, oil, photography, pottery, textiles, woodworking, jewelry, stained glass, and more.
During the month of May, Memphians who drive to work alone are getting a bit of extra encouragement to switch gears and do their commute differently. Whether you carpool, scoot, bike or the like, the Innovate Memphis Commute Options initiative urges you to leave your car behind all month long for the 2019 Commute Challenge.
Sunday at Wiseacre, Literacy Mid-South invites you to have all of the post-marathon fun (drinking and loading up on carbs) without having to run. Each ticket for the Zero K comes with two drink tickets and a complimentary raffle ticket. The Cousins Maine Lobster food truck will be there for your noshing needs. Proceeds go to creating supply bags for Literacy Mid-South's summer reading students.
