Here are your top weekend events for this upcoming Memorial Weekend. There are a number of notable events going on this weekend which draw a lot of attention which are not surprisingly showing up on the list below.
The Indianapolis 500 is an annual event and is considered one of the three most significant motorsports events (others include the Monaco Grand Prix and the 24 hours of Le Mans) in the world and typically fills every seat and infield. The race consists of 200 laps and 500 miles and the ultimate goal of the racers is to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport, but winning this race and the other two.
Of course the NBA Playoffs are still going on. The Dallas Mavericks showed the OKC Thunder who’s boss and made quick work on them, 4 -1. The Chicago Bulls are struggling against the Heat. MVP, Derrick Rose, just can’t bring the team a W against forces like James, Wade and Bosh. This is a do or die game for the Bulls.
Sasquatch! Music Festival in Washington is a huge, 3-day, outdoor event that will feature amazing acts such as Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips, Wilco and many, many others.
The Memorial Golf Tournament is a PGA Tournament founded by master golfer, Jack Nicklaus and held in Columbus, Nicklaus’ home town. Tiger Woods has the most victories under his belt in this tournament, having won four times. But he’s currently down with a unexplained leg injury.
Holding the top spot on the list this weekend is the jam band, Phish. They’re the Grateful Dead of this generation.
Bruno Mars shows up a couple of times on the list. His fun, quirky songs like “Just the Way you Are” and “The Lazy Song” are catchy with many age groups. He’s not just a slacker with a good voice though. Did you know he also wrote the hooks for the songs “Nothin’ on You” by B.o.B, and “Billionaire” byTravie McCoy. He also co-wrote the hits “Right Round” by Flo Rida featuring Kesha, “Wavin’ Flag” by K’naan, and “Fuck You!” by Cee Lo Green. Do not underestimate this guy.
So there you have it, the top events going on this Memorial Day Weekend. Have fun and be safe!
