Working for the Weekend?


Country singer Jason Aldean performs at the Jackson Convention Complex tonight.

It's hard to believe that it's the first weekend in June, isn't it? If you're looking for things to do, places to go and people to see, though, this is the right place. Allow us to suggest a few things, courtesy of the JFP Events Calendar and Best Bets.

If you find yourself dateless tonight, head up to Barnes & Noble at Renaissance in Ridgeland to hear Nancy Nichols talk about "Secrets of the Ultimate Husband Hunter" at 6:30 p.m. Then head over to Ridgeland High for a Center Players performance of "The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged" at 7:30 p.m. If country music is your thing, check out Jason Aldean at the Jackson Convention Complex, or choose from any number of musical genres at the clubs tonight. Your source for live music are the JFP Music Listings.

Early risers have an opportunity to hike with the Jackson Audubon Society tomorrow at Mayes Lake. Bring bug spray, binoculars and water. Or, check out one of the outdoor markets, from the Mississippi Farmers market by the fairgrounds to the Greater Belhaven Market or the Congress Street Market at the Common's Gallery. Later, be sure to stop by the Medgar Evers/B.B. King Homecoming Concert on Ellis Avenue, or bring the kids to the Jackson Zoo for the Zoo's 90th birthday celebration, featuring clowns, space jumps and more. Saturday night, don't miss Swing d'Paris at Hal & Mal's, or find your favorite band or DJ by scanning the JFP Music Listings.

Start your Sunday with brunch and the music of Ralph Miller at Two Sisters, starting at 10:30. Then, if you're ready for something complete different, stop by Butterfly Yoga in Fondren at 2 p.m. for a free Capoeira class. Wear comfortable clothing. At 4 p.m., head to BRAVO! for the Martinelli Wine Tasting, or spend the afternoon at the Mississippi Museum of Art taking in any of the wonderful exhibits, including "The Mississippi Story.
