Do editor Heather Henley joins Renee LaSalle and Kim Gusby on WSAV's "The Bridge" to preview the best the weekend has to offer. Read more in Renee's weekly column.

One of the weekend's most anticipated events is the rescheduled memorial for The Lady Chablis, who passed away Sept. 8. Festivities to celebrate the beloved Savannah performer on Nov. 5 include a screening of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" at the Lucas Theatre and cabaret tribute shows at Club One. Get the full details here.

From Nov. 7-12, the Savannah Food & Wine Festival returns with a bounty of delights, including master classes, wine tastings, gourmet dinner, charity events and more. Be sure to check out the Secret Savannah Speakeasy, Taste of Savannah and many other spotlight events to showcase the Hostess City. Eat It and Like It has some recommendations here.

After two months of cancellations, the First Friday Art March will bounce back with plenty of exhibits and activities from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 4 in the Starland District. Art Rise Savannah executive director Clinton Edminster has the scoop.

During the Art March, Graveface Records & Curiosities will also celebrate its five-year anniversary with a block party on 40th Street from 5-11 p.m. Nov. 4. This is another rescheduled event due to Hurricane Matthew. Details here.

And finally, music lovers and runners will converge on Forsyth Park the morning of Nov. 5 to catch a free concert headlined by Old Crow Medicine Show. The concerts are part of the festivities surrounding the Rock 'n' Roll Savannah Marathon. See our interview with Old Crow's Ketch Secor here.

Look for Heather's weekend preview on "The Bridge" from 11 a.m.-noon every Wednesday on WSAV-TV or catch the live stream.
