Saturday of all Saturdays

Sometimes when I look at the weekend ahead, it is wide open with nothing to do. Other times, there's TOO much to do. Okay, the former hardly ever happens these days, but this Saturday there's SO much going on there's no way I'll be able to do it all.

We have an awesome Rock-n-Romp with Those Darlins, Caleb Sweazy, and the Arch Rivals!

And it's the Roller Derby Semi-Final Championships! The Legion of Zoom is battling the Women of Mass Destruction FIRST! So be there in your red shirts at 6:00 when the doors open.

I really really want to go to the bicycle rally at Overton Park Saturday morning, but I just don't see it happening. Somebody go and tell me all about it!

It begins at the Rainbow Lake parking right next to the Overton Park Lake and ends at the Peabody Park Pavilion located near the intersection of Central and Cooper. The rally at Overton Park starts at noon (12 p.m.) sharp.

This ride will be a call from cyclists to the city council. Memphians want to see stripes and signs on our city streets that create safe roadways for bicycles. Candidates running for council seats will ride in support of bicycle and pedestrian improvements, and explain their vision for a bicycle and pedestrian safe midtown at the concluding rally. Tell Bob I said HI! (And if he seems nice, tell him to get new glasses!)

Contact Anthony Siracusa for more information 901.949.1201

There's also an all day festival at Playhouse on the Square, which sounds like a lot of fun. Saturday from 9 to 11 AM there will be a kids' festival with games, a live performance of Robin Hood, music by the Senior Conservatory, and food and beverages including 300 Krispy Kreme donuts. Then from 1 to 7 Saturday afternoon there will be an artists' market. Admission is free, and parking is available for free across Cooper at the lot that runs from Monroe to Union.

The Playhouse is really top notch. Warren and I just returned from Jerry Springer--The Opera and it was off the hook. (Chain?) Playhouse got first rights on the Opera and it is only playing at one other theater in the United States. Go see it! This is the last weekend it's playing, and if you can squeeze it in--Sunday afternoon, maybe? I highly suggest it. It made Urinetown seem tame!

As an added bonus, Jeanne Seagle has her original "News of the Weird" sketches on display. (And for sale at $65 a pop! I've got dibs on the one with the kid sporting a toilet seat on his head.)

Have a great weekend--maybe I'll see you Saturday!

someone should also tell Bob that you wore sorostitute-like bows in your hair well into your junior year of high school... I can't believe you would publically critique a grown man like we were in prealgebra,EVERYBODY reads your blog and you are gonna make him cry! GO ZOOM!!!

Well, we made it to R-n-R and the Derby at least! Both were awesome, of course.
Now, tell me why on earth you would want to see something with the words "Jerry Springer" and "Opera" in the title.
