14. Hit up a festival
Midtown or Downtown
If you’re planning a date for the spring, summer, or fall in Memphis, you can bet there will be at least one food or art-related neighborhood festival going on that weekend. Broad Ave, East Buntyn, and Vollintine-Evergreen all have periodic art walks where browsing local art and sipping wine is the order of the day. For day dates involving day drinking, look for hot wing, burger, food truck, Greek, Italian, and BBQ festivals. For sun and beer, crawfish festivals in spring, and Cooper Young Fest in the fall, provide plenty of entertainment and snacks. You really can’t go wrong with a walk, a drink, and a dose of culture.
