If you are going to be in Memphis this weekend, the chances are pretty high that you are going to encounter someone who is somehow connected to the Southern Heritage Classic.

Yes, it’s Southern Heritage Classic Weekend, No. 22 and there is a lot going on. From concerts featuring The O’Jays, Kem and Anthony David, to comedy shows and fashion shows, a golf tournament, tailgaiting…well, you get the point.

 Get the full scoop in this week’s TSD special edition tribute to the ‘Classic.’

 I have no idea who’s gonna win, but I’m about 100 percent sure it’s gonna be the Tigers. Yeah, that joke never gets old. LOL

Learning from the ‘ATL’

“The ATL Model: What can Memphis learn from Atlanta’s success in creating a thriving environment for the growth of minority businesses?” That’s the topic for Universal Commercial Real Estate’s fourth monthly Regional MBE Power Breakfast at the University Club from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Eugene Duffy, who worked as deputy chief administrative officer alongside Atlanta Mayors Maynard Jackson and Andrew Young, will share what it required from all sectors of the Atlanta community to produce opportunities such as the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport expansion and the 1996 Olympic Games and ultimately fuel the growth of minority business receipts.

The University Club is located at 1346 Central Ave. General Admission is $15. RSVP to: rsvp@universalcommercial.com or call 901-414-3315, ext. 2.
