Guess who’s back…. back again with your Weekend Guide Update
Usually, it’s July that’s the melting pot of the year, but August has been way more brutal. We’re longing for that week we get of actual Fall before Winter decides to hit early. On top of layering on the humidity? Tennessee…. please. But on much better notes: Memphis football is only 19 days away.
Safety reminder: Please follow all business + event guidelines, wear a mask to protect yourself + those around you as COVID cases begin to rise in the area. Be safe + have fun, Memphis!
