As you walk around this weekend playing Pokemon Go, you may decide you want to stop and do something a little different than just wander around the city with your head down. (No judgement, members of our team are playing as well!) This time of year, most people in Chattanooga are utilizing the water that we have available all around us. Lakes and rivers are full of people from sun up to sundown and beyond with early bird fishermen, kayakers, wakeboarders, paddleboarders and swimmers all taking advantage of the cool water and massive fun offered up. In addition, live music, food offerings, parties and all manners of fun can be found. If you look up from searching for that ever elusive Snorlax.
Music at the Revelry Room
It's HOT and you want to take a break in the AC. Tonight you can hit all the poke stops in the Southside and then grab a beer and check out two local rising bands who are perfoming tonight at the Revelry Room. Danimal Planet andRyan Oyer will both perform tonight with Ryan opening. Both are awesome in their own right and together make for a night of awesome music. Show starts at 9:30 and admission is $10. 41 E. 14th St.
Yes, it sounds like a Pokemon character. No it is not. You may be able to find some around the Camp House tonight beforehand, however. Tonight is the 25th gathering of the TedTalk like format of story telling in Chattanooga. Tonight's list of speakers include Sean Phipps of 'Nooga (and Twitter) as well as three others who all have interesting stories and are members of the Chattanooga community. The format is 20 images, 20 seconds each and is held all over the world. The Camp House is located at the corner of MLKing and Lindsay Street. Event Starts at 6:20 and is free with donations for future events. Info online and on Facebook.
Chattanooga Futbol Club Playoffs
With a cult following and an awesome run, the Chattanooga Futbol Club is one of the most fun summer gatherings of Chattanoogas. Finley Stadium takes on a contagiously fun atmosphere and you bet your boots, you want to cheer along with the Chattahooligans. Game starts at 7:30, gates open at 6:30 and there is plenty of tailgating before hand. Tickets are $10 and can be bought at the gate.
We hope you have an awesome weekend. Stay cool, keep out of traffic as you chase your Pokemon and enjoy our wonderful city!
