If you’re looking for an excuse to grab a beer on a school night, Railgarten & Teach901’s Weekly Crawfish Happy Hour will not disappoint. These Thursday night crawfish boils not only raise money for a great cause, but they’re also a welcome opportunity for Memphians to show appreciation for and engage with our local education community. One dollar for every pound of crawfish sold will go to benefit Memphis schools and education programs, so this Thursday we invite you to stop by, grab some mudbugs, and say ‘Hi’ to your favorite Memphis teachers!
You know that Railgarten, Midtown’s 1.5-acre family-friendly play-place has the drinks, the food, the indoor fun, and the outdoor activities like firepits, wrestling matches, volleyball courts and ping pong tables. Now they’re giving back, and Teach901 is excited to partner with them for a Weekly Crawfish Happy Hour every Thursday night from 5-9pm, now through July 4th. Each week we’ll celebrate a different school or education program, and Railgarten will donate a portion of all crawfish sales to benefit that organization.
For those who don’t know: Teach901 is a collaborative effort to recruit high-quality teachers who are passionate about education to work in high-needs schools in Memphis. Teach901 is also dedicated to retaining the incredible teacher talent in Memphis and pursues this goal in three ways: hosting events that build community and show appreciation, sharing stories from the movement, and providing professional development opportunities. This is why we’re excited for this opportunity to show local educators and education program coordinators a great time at Railgarten, and we hope you’ll join us.
Here are the details. We look forward to seeing you there!
