Joseph, 418 S. Grove Park
Fri., March 18, 6-8 p.m.
Being that it is still Women's History Month, why not mix it up with some ladies who are creating history for the next generation? The Modern Day Woman's Conference will be held at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis on Saturday. I overheard one of our lovely ladies at Contemporary Media, Ashley Haeger, raving about last year's conference. There is opportunity to celebrate women at some other events around town too. Kate Campbell will be playing at Center for Southern Folklore on Saturday, the young ladies at Hutchinson will be having their Beeline Bazaar also on Saturday, “Women of Courage in Memphis” exhibit is on view through the end of March, and an artist reception for Olga King will be held at Crosstown Arts on Friday and Saturday.
Elmwood Easter Egg Hunt
Elmwood Cemetery, 824 S. Dudley
Sat., March 19, 9 a.m.
You can wear your Easter bonnet if you would like for pictures with the Easter Bunny, but make sure to wear comfortable shoes and have your 1-10 year old bunnies bring a basket. Since EB—Easter Bunny—heard that the Yummy Bunny Breakfast at the Children's Museum is sold out, there will be donuts and coffee available for sale. Come out for an eggstra special hopping good time.
Memphis College of Art, 1930 Poplar
Sat., March 19, 2-6 p.m.
I am partial to printmakers. They are a creative lot. How do I know this? I once had a customer who was quite smitten with a lovely young lady. He was a regular customer at my cafe. One day I came to open the shop and he was waiting at the stoop with a box. He asked if he could come in early and set up. I didn't ask any questions as he pulled out a white table cloth, set two place settings, and put a candle and a single red rose in the center of the table. He ordered her favorite foods and his object of affection showed up like clockwork at 7 a.m. He was a printmaker. Need I say more? At this printmaking celebration of Memphis College of Art students and alumni, you too can fall in love with creativity. And I might mention that there are quite a few artist receptions this weekend to fill your creative heart. Go to our calendar of events and pick one.

We've got your bunny covered for Easter. Why not see some chicks too? Our good friend Jerry Dye with Voices of the South puts his spin on this timeless tale. It's closing weekend for this bit of quackery.
Mid-South Fairgrounds, Arena Building

Jimmy Ogle, historian and master of tales, will delight you this weekend. It will be the best show at the Fairgrounds since the Fair vacated to Mississippi a few years back. I promise it will be a fun ride—just bring your walking shoes, Jimmy is stealth.
