MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Friday marks ‘901 Day’ in the 901, a day to celebrate our city through a wide variety of special activities that include business and culture! WREG has you covered with all things Memphis.
Cristina McCarter owns Feast and Graze on Main Street. Normally she’d spend 901 Day with her friends and family, but this year, owning a storefront, she’s offering special deals for customers who drop in or shop online.
“I’m big on Memphis pride. I’m a Memphis native so anytime we get a chance to bring positivity to this city, I’m all on board,” McCarter said. “You’ll be able to get one of our mini cheese boards for $9.01, and then online we’ll have everything on the website will be $9.01 off.”
That $9.01 deal is being offered by most merchants taking part on Friday. Field box/dugout seats for Friday night’s Redbird game are just $9.01 per seat.
“Tomorrow, the first 1,500 fans through the gates, when our gates open at six o’clock, will get one of these two shirts that are here,” said Craig Unger Redbirds president and general manager. “And then throughout the game, there will be a silent auction for this jersey that I’m wearing here and this jersey has all the things we could think of that represent Memphis.”
