The interactive exhibits and programs compiled by the Pink Palace Family of Museums reinforce a mission that has stayed constant for 80 years: to "inspire people to learn how history, science, technology, and nature shape the Mid-South." Attached to Clarence Saunders' mansion built in the 1920s, the museum's permanent exhibits take an eclectic approach to chronicling the past, revealing everything from ancient fossils to contemporary southern history. Inside, visitors can chart the history of Memphis from the early Spanish explorers through the Civil War or walk through a replica of Saunders' original Piggly Wiggly—the country’s first self-service grocery store, and even see a shrunken head. Global adventures are chronicled on a four-story screen at the CTI-IMAX theater, and the Sharpe Planetarium explores the cosmos from the comfort of a 130-seat theater.

Traveling to east Memphis, one can discern the natural side of the Pink Palace Family of Museums. Lichterman Nature Center encompasses 65 acres of lush gardens filled with native wildflowers, trees, and wildlife. The center combines self-guided nature walks with plant sales and educational activities to expose visitors to the natural world.

Your Groupon is good for one of the company's final three productions of its 40th season. Reacquaint yourself with the classic Oliver! and sing along to the musical tunes of your childhood, such as "Food, Glorious Food," and "Consider Yourself," as the rapscallion orphans of Dickens's tale tear through the streets of 19th-century London. Or opt for a ticket to the regional premiere of Red, White, and Tuna, a two-man portrayal of the inhabitants of a small Texas town with more than 15 characters and 40 lightning-quick costume changes. Or take in the musical Hairspray to relive the trials and tribulations of Tracy Turnblad as she breaks into the 1962 Baltimore dance-show circuit. Instead of threatening lawsuits or vicious revenge, the cast of local Memphis actors will dazzle audiences with their triple threats of singing, dancing, and acting.

With more than 120 million records sold, more than 2,600 concerts performed, and a million faces seen and rocked, Bon Jovi has carved out a New Jersey–sized place in the rock pantheon. The band's current trek into the stadiums and arenas of the world, The Circle Tour, ups the ante on live music with an 800,000-watt sound system and a 4,300-square-foot, high-definition video screen. Bona fide Bon Jovi fans can expect to hear songs from the band's most recent album, The Circle, as well as classic smash hits like "Livin' on a Prayer," "You Give Love a Bad Name," and "It's My Life." Opening act Kid Rock is no slouch himself—the Motor City music maker has blended rock, rap, and country into a sonic smorgasbord that has earned multiple Grammy nominations and sold millions of records worldwide. Concertgoers may hear hits like "All Summer Long," "Cowboy," and "Bawitdaba," which is "Kid Rock" spelled backwards.

Voted About.com’s Best Haunt in Memphis for two years running, Hauntedweb of Horrors ushers guests through two winding walk-throughs filled with gruesome scenery and ghoulish live denizens. The Tormented haunt plunks guests into Dr. Hacker's asylum, where they encounter frenzied inmates in macabre hospital locales. Eluding the doctor deposits patrons in the Dark Bayou—a quagmire beset by bloodthirsty locals and the vengeful ghosts of catfish dinners past. Feet can also tiptoe past psychedelic terrors in The Dark Matter haunt's labyrinthine tangle, navigating a surreal landscape of 3-D visuals that baffle the senses. Each frightful journey lasts approximately 15–20 minutes or 20–40 high-pitched screams. Although Hauntedweb does not recommend that children tour its spooky innards, its proceeds help Youth Villages to reach kids in need. While this Groupon is valid any day through October 31, customers attending the Hauntedweb of Horrors October 29 through October 31 should expect long lines and possible delays.

Voices of the South adapts the literature of Southern writers such as Eudora Welty and William Faulkner for the stage with minimal alteration, letting audiences experience books as living things that sprout leather-bound arms and legs and roam the country in search of fast cars and faster women. Sister Myotis's Bible Camp tells the comedic story of three devout Southern ladies on a mission to save souls. In addition to writing the screenplay, Steve Swift also stars as Sister Myotis, the head deaconess of an 80,000-member church who takes on backsliders, "the chronically mediocre," and, as depicted in a YouTube clip that has earned more than 2.5 million views, thongs. Accompanied by Ima Lone and Velma Needlemeyer, Sister Myotis hosts an annual women's retreat to tend the flock, coaxing wayward members with strong words and a giant licorice lasso. This performance will run at TheatreWorks, a nonprofit organization that offers low-cost office, rehearsal, and performance space for emerging artists. Call to reserve your ticket after purchasing today's Groupon, and simply pick it up at will-call on the night of the show.
