Spring is bustin’ out all over

The heat today felt more like summer, but we’ll take it over cold and drizzly. There are all sorts of good things happening in the next few days.

Thursday, April 24, Brooks Museum presents Storytime: An Ear for Art, stories and art activities for kids 3 – 8. Admission to the museum is free tomorrow for kids under 6. For the older folks, Brushmark Restaurant will be offering Tapas on the Terrace. You can enjoy the weather and the sweeping view of Overton Park on the museum’s terrace while enjoying small plates created by chefs Wally Joe and Andrew Adams.

Also on Thursday, Paulette‘s is holding their monthly wine dinner. This month, they are featuring Alamos wines from Argentina.

From Restaurant Iris: On Thursday, May 1st Kerstin Klamm with Domane Wachau will be pouring & discussing her outstanding wines at Restaurant Iris. Domane Wachau produces incredible gruner veltliners & rieslings from some of the oldest vineyards in the world, some dating back to the 12th Century! Chef Kelly English promises a delicious assortment of courses to pair with these outstanding wines. The cost to attend will be $60 plus tax & gratuity. Dinner begins at 6:00 p.m. Joe’s Wines will be offering discounts on the wines poured that evening.

The second monthly Cooper-Young Night out will be on Thursday night, May 1. We went to the first ever event and had a great time. You should check it out.

That’s everything I can think of for now. If you aren’t already, you should be reading Ryan Jones’ blog My Midtown Memphis. Ryan does an excellent job keeping up with what’s going on in the neighborhood.
