Who's your choice for Mayor in 2015?

You need a break, and so do I

This weekend, the Cracker can recommend one of the city's finest annual moments, the Center for Southern Folklore's Memphis Music & Heritage Festival.

It takes place this Saturday & Sunday from 11 AM-Midnight on South Main between Gayoso and Peabody Place, with four stages, food demonstrations, dance, area craftspeople and storytellers, and great food.

The cost for the music, dance, food demonstrations, stories?

NOTHING. NADA. ZERO. ZILCH.

Parking can be had at PARKING CAN BE FUN on Union (only $2 for the WHOLE DAY), the TOWER GARAGEon Peabody Place (slightly higher).

You can find the Cracker at the corner of Main and Peabody Place, where I will be managing the Verizon Stage. Look for the fat guy at the side of the stage!

I believe that the Beale Street Music Festival is for the tourists, but this festival is for US. If you are having visitors for the next few months, this might be a nice relief for them (and you). Please come on down and have a good time. Here is the schedule:
