Save the Date for our VIRTUAL Event
Saturday, February 20, 2021, 6-9pm CST
We’re going VIRTUAL: With COVID numbers climbing, it's too scary for us to responsibly host our outdoor drive-in but never fear! We’ve decided to host our first ALL-VIRTUAL American Advertising Awards event you can attend from the safety of your couch, with hopes for an in-person event later this year.
We still have some thrills and chills up our sleeve - this ain't gonna be your average Zoom! Get ready for celebrity appearances, boos, and booze. Choose an option to add a gift card and support some of the best restaurants Memphis has to offer (Chef Kelly English, Chef Tam, and Chefs Andrew and Michael? OH MY!) and imbibe your own custom cocktail tailored just for us by mixologist Morgan McKinney, who will lead us in a virtual cocktail tutorial to add a bit of flavor to the evening. And keep an eye out for surprise special guests - you might recognize some of the award-givers.
A portion of proceeds from all tickets sold will benefit the Welcome to Memphis COVID-19 fund.
