History in song
To commemorate Black History Month, Chattanooga Parks and Recreation has put together a full week of engaging community events recognizing the local figures whose pioneering and brave lives and acts established still-existing sites and neighborhoods in the Scenic City. Tonight, the program moves to Eastdale’s Antioch Baptist Church for a concert of local choirs and solo performers celebrating the tradition of gospel music.

When: 6-8 p.m.
Where: 903 G W Davis Drive

A beer with a purple donkey
There’s a building at the foot of Lookout Mountain right next to the Incline Railway with a purple roof and a purple donkey mascot. This little shop is also home to some of the best barbecue in town, and now, the Purple Daisy Picnic is running a happy hour to pair with its inventive menu—think cheeseburger quesadillas; piglet sandwiches; and a layered chicken salad, pimento cheese and cucumber spread sandwich.

When: 3-6 p.m.
Where: 4001 St. Elmo Ave.
How much: Discounted domestic beers
