The 2nd Annual River Arts Fest is coming up this Saturday, November 1st (10am - 6pm) & Sunday, November 2nd (10am - 5pm) on South Main just south of G.E. Patterson. This is Downtown Memphis' largest free urban street festival showcasing art and music (5 stages) and of course, food. The festival features 180 juried local and national artists.
Speaking of South Main and food, Harry's Detour at 106 G.E. Patterson has (or maybe had - call them to be sure 901-523-9070) a mussel special for $7.95. Harry's is in a tiny spot that you can walk by a hundred times and not take much notice of but you should. The food is always great and the atmosphere is cozy and relaxed and the service is friendly. Open Tuesday through Saturday for lunch and Wednesday through Saturday for dinner.
