Can you imagine what it is like to be chained to a desk with nothing but a mouse for entertainment? What it must feel like to be kept in a tiny cubicle for eight hours a day? This is day-to-day life for many downtown office workers. The Fourth Bluff Project and Memphis Animal Shelter are teaming up to help these needy office workers break the shackles of sedentary life. Come and see big-hearted, friendly adoption dogs rescue loving people and take them for a walk--that’s how much these dogs care about you! Memphis Animal Shelter is bringing a wide variety of friendly, happy dogs to interact with the downtown community for this special pilot project, which creates a wonderful opportunity for people to see the amazing dogs that are waiting for good and loving homes.

Fourth Bluff Friday

Friday night’s free music mixer continues with music from Jack O & the Sheiks, led by Jack “Oblivian” Yarber who, depending on who you ask, is either a rock legend or an absolute unknown. This dichotomy is well-understood by Memphis musicians, as underground “fame,” for all its rewards, has, with a few exceptions, been the ceiling for local acts for decades. And no one knows this dichotomy better than Yarber, who may be Memphis’ most influential active rock musician. The list of noteworthy bands Yarber has been a member of over the years is massive and includes Johnny Vomit & the Dry Heaves (a high school punk project that also featured future Squirrel Nut Zipper Jimbo Mathus), new-wavers the End, ’68 Comeback, Knaughty Knights, Tav Falco’s Panther Burns, the Compulsive Gamblers and the Oblivians. Come thirsty—the TapBox will be on hand with ten beers on tap, and Yippie Trippy food truck and vendor Texstyle Bags will be on site along with park games for all ages, including giant Jenga, cornhole, and more.
