Welcome back to the best place to find things to do in Memphis, friends.
New month, new look to the blog, new line-up of events, can’t get any better… right? This week has a sweet opportunity to channel your inner baker in the Broad Avenue Arts District. The holidays are creeping up on us, but luckily we have the perfect market in mind to find that right gift for your loved ones. Best of all… it can be paired with a fine draft while you shop the Crosstown Concourse area. Other crafty opportunities include learning how to build and craft your own necklaces through the guidance of one of the pro’s from Amulet! Paired with another neat gift from a Holiday Market happening over at the Memphis Botanical Gardens in East Memphis. And lastly for our things to do in Memphis this weekend is the opening of a fan-favorite for the season: Zoo Lights at the Memphis Zoo! Let’s get into it:

Phineas is a female orange kitty which makes her so unique! She is such a sweet kitty, but she can be very shy around new people. It takes time to warm up, but once she accepts you she will give you all the cuddles in the world! Even with her uncertainty toward new people, she still loves a good bout with the string toys or springs in the cat house. Phineas is good with other cats, but right now she gets her own big room in order to give her the space she needs to open up.
