Grizzlies Red Dress RampageSaturday, October 22 at Belcourt Theatre, 12pm, $40. Ladies (and especially gents), put on your best red dresses and head to the Belcourt, where your $40 registration fee gets you a Yazoo beer at each of the five stops along this different sort of pub crawl/fun run.

The Big Nashty. Saturday, October 22 at 550 South Tunnel Road in Gallatin, TN. 12pm-3am Sunday, $20. Who doesn’t like a scrappy startup music festival? Two stages, lots of local music until the wee hours of the night, food trucks and more. Camping is encouraged, and we’re not sure why since it’s only one day. But hey!
