MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Want a fun, new way to celebrate happy hour?
The City of Memphis, Riverfront Development Corporation, and Downtown Memphis Commission are partnering with The TapBox, Memphis' newest mobile beer vendor, to establish a new pop-up garden series to urge people to rediscover the Mississippi River's "Fourth Bluff".
Located at Memphis Park (formerly Confederate Park), the event aims to encourage people who work downtown to stay downtown and take in the sights of the mighty Mississippi.
The series starts on August 12 from 4:30-9 p.m. and will continue on September 9 and October 14 with music from The Maitre D's and Devil Train.
The park will have string lights and decorations, and the kickoff event for the garden series will feature live music from The Mighty Souls Brass Band who play from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The event is free with drinks and food available for purchase and people of all ages are welcomed to attend.
Many food trucks and vendors will be in attendance including the Monkey Train Grazing Co., Stickem, and Say Cheese. There will also be yard games, like cornhole, for people to play.
The TapBox will be hand serving beer out of their mobile beer garden. Co-founded by Memphians McCauley Williams, J.R. Kingsley, and Justin Brooks, The TapBox has an outside bar and holds eight kegs.
The "beer food truck" will serve local craft beers from companies like Wiseacre Brewing, High Cotton Brewing Co., Memphis Made Brewing and Ghost River Brewing. The TapBox will also serve ciders and shandys.
