Summer Stargazing + More Things to do in Memphis

A Story By

Collierville, East Memphis, Cooper-Young, Downtown, all these places in Memphis are holding events for you to find + enjoy this weekend! In this week’s Weekend Guide update, we found a hands-on activity for our plant lovers. Midtown’s Irish pub hosts a tasting for all whiskey lovers to come together + enjoy the evening. A hot air balloon jamboree is even taking place in Collierville! All these events are happening this weekend along with more things to do in Memphis. And with that, let’s get into it.

Planter party? Planter party. 🌱  Over in East Memphis, the Memphis Botanical Garden is throwing you a Terrarium Planter event so you can create your own tiny world! Little figurines, animals, dinosaurs, glass jewels, plus more. And, you can bring yourself something to sip on while you craft your terrariums!
