Levitt Shell is pretty convenient to me with lots of parking and shaded grassy areas. Wiseacre taproom on Broad has some shaded areas outdoors. Crosstown Brewing Company Taproom has a fairly spacious indoor area and shaded outdoor area that has a little grass, but I haven’t been in a few months.
The older memphis group used to meet at Germantown Public Library; I don’t know if they reserved a room, or if there was just space to throw. I could check to see if the Benjamin J. Hicks Central Library has any spaces that can be reserved (for free). Either of you have a preference for which area of Memphis, and do you care if it’s at a taproom?
Overton Park Shell is a fun spot as long as it isn’t too hot outside. I don’t have much experience with tap rooms (I’m almost 21 haha) but the Crosstown Concourse in general is a real fun spot! I’m there quite often for many things. I’ll have to check out the library, I haven’t been there before.
It sounds like from the description we might be able to just show up. I take my kids to the central library pretty regularly, I’ll try to remember to ask about reserving space for a meet up next time. We might go again this week. I will not be available this weekend, but I could make it the 23rd or the 30th.
I have a thing in the afternoon and evening. And I’m also no longer available on the 23rd. Nothing currently planned for the 6th, or I might be able to meet up for a bit in the late morning, between 10am-1pm.
I’ve got a show at the Green Room tonight, while I’m there I can ask someone from Crosstown Arts about a potential meetup. If y’all aren’t doing anything tonight, we have the incredible saxophonist Joel Frahm playing with us! I’ll bring a couple yo’s with me just in case, haha.
Did you get a chance to talk to Crosstown Arts about meeting at their lobby?
I totally forgot about this meet up on the weekend of the 30th, and subsequently forgot to post here that I was disappointed I forgot to check in here when I realized i had forgotten. I’m not sure I can make it this month, but maybe a September Saturday will work for everyone? I go to the central library fairly regularly and I’ll ask there if they have spaces that can be reserved for free.
