Trot for Spot Saturday, May 9th

Just a quick post about an event coming up NEXT weekend, for there is life after Music Fest! Thanks to Kembree at Persian Pitbull for reminding me about the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County's annual event, Trot for Spot (this is a walk not a 5K). It's at the Humane Society, 935 Farm Road, from 10am - 2pm next Saturday, May 9th. I have participated in this in the past and it's a really fun event. You do not have to have a dog to participate. There is a whole schedule of events including agility runs, the walk itself, games and contests. Please click this link for all the details, deadlines and requirements:

Have Fun at Music Fest; Quick Lunch Options; Downtown at Night

For all of you going to music fest this weekend, have fun, be safe and get some rain boots. The fun part should be easy enough as there are some great bands lined up. If you find yourself looking for a quick bite to eat while you're downtown this weekend and you're not crazy about festival food, here are some places to get good food in a hurry:

Frank's Main Street Market & Deli, 327 S. Main has great deli sandwiches and sides. Their green goddess slaw is very nice. There is also indoor and outdoor seating.

Beignets at 124 E. G.E. Patterson has a deli case full of prepared food and of course, their regular menu items made to order.

Riverside Grill (in the BP station) at 694 Riverside has a counter that does a brisk lunch business.

Miss Cordelia's at 737 Harbor Bend in Harbor Town has a fantastic deli as well as a case of prepared foods.

Pearl's has a sandwich sign guy walking around downtown advertising their $7.99 Express Lunches served Monday through Friday.

To keep in mind for the future: Hott Diggidy Dog (gourmet hot dogs, so the sign says) on Madison between Second and Third looks to be opening soon.
