Have a High-Brow Weekend in Memphis


Tired of hearing the same old bands in the same old bars? Looking for a sophisticated way to spend the weekend? Calendar editor Bianca Phillips has a few suggestions for high-brow weekend fun:

Local artist Tim Kinard produces nude human sculptures in often-precarious positions. Check out Kinard's work in "World's Smallest Man," opening at the P&H Cafe Friday from 8-10 p.m.

Or if the written word is more your style, hit up the release party for the spring edition of The Pinch, a University of Memphis-sponsored literary journal. The party starts Friday at 6 p.m. at L Ross Gallery.

Got kids? Celebrate Easter early with the Dixon Gallery and Garden's annual egg hunt on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. Reservations are required, so you might want to take care of that, like, now.

Grab a quick bite of free vegetarian food samples at the Great American Meatout Day celebration at Wild Oats on Saturday. Samples of faux meats and information on going veg will be available in the community room from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

World-famous string group Kronos Quartet plays the Germantown Performing Arts Centre Saturday night at 8 p.m.

And finally, though it's not exactly "high-brow," don't miss the campy Great American Trailer Park Musical at Circuit Playhouse. The show runs nightly throughout the weekend.
