Weekend Round-Up

It looks like the rain is expected to, finally, let up over the weekend. And though temps are expected to drop into the 50s, that's no excuse to stay in your boring old house. Not when there's so much going on. Get out and do something. Here are some ideas:

Quell your hot flashes with the silly, campy Menopause the Musical at the Orpheum Friday through Sunday night. The show, which has been described as 'The Rocky Horror Show for women."(whatever that means), features middle-aged women singing 1960s hits re-lyricized to deal with things like night sweats and other symptoms of menopause.

Don't miss Brooks Uncorked tonight at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. Voted one of the cities top 10 parties of the year by R.S.V.P., the event features 80 fine wines from around the world, a raw food bar, and live music.

Ring in the spring with the annual Spring Market at the Agricenter, which features plenty of vendor booths peddling spring fashions and home accessories. The event is held Friday through Sunday.

Burn off some of those winter calories on Saturday at the High Point Coffee Dodgeball Challenge, where teams will battle it out to raise money for Playhouse on the Square's new building.

After the game, stop by the annual Crawfish Festival in Overton Square on Saturday for plenty of boiled crustacean and live music by Amy & The Tramps, Cedric Burnside, and others.

While you're having all this fun, poor Fido has to stay at home. So treat him to a dog-friendly event on Sunday at Trot for Spot in Shelby Farms, the annual dog walk/run benefiting the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County.
