After the Sugar Coma

Now, generally, on the weekends, I like to sit at home on my couch and watch Gossip Girl and Heroes on Netflix. But I may have to change my regular plans for this weekend, because there seems to be a lot going on. And that's not even counting all the Halloweenie revelry.

Memphis Rock-n-Romp's last show of the season is also happening Saturday at the National Ornamental Metal Museum. The line-up includes the Nellie Olesens (v. precious!), Harlan T. Bobo (even more precious!) and The Barbaras (also precious).

It goes from 2 - 6 p.m. Adults are $5; kids are free (but you need to have a kid with you to go!) Beer is provided, but you should bring a blanket and/or chairs and snacks to share.

UrbanArt's first "Show and Tell" will also be that night at The Cove from 6 - 8 p.m. Each presentation will be about seven minutes (20 slides at 20 seconds each) and though I don't know what kinds of things people will be showing and telling — it sounds like it could be anything! — it should be interesting. And sort of reminiscent of grade school, but with beer.

RiverArtsFest is also going on Saturday and Sunday on South Main. It's free and open to the public, with five stags of live entertainment, a juried artist market, and beer and wine sales.

Hmmm, seems like the common denominator here is beer.

For more (and there is definitely more, but my fingers are getting tired) visit the Flyer's website.

Oh, and happy halloween.
