Nixon's Memoirs: 10-A-See

10-A-See

Well, we're back from Memphis. WOW! What a trip! We got in Thursday afternoon after stopping at Krystal's for lunch in West Memphis. We toured downtown and Beale Street all day, catching several great sites such at the Police Museum.
 
That night we went to B.B. King's, and saw Ruby Wilson.
 
The next day we saw the Masters of Florence exhibit at The Pyramid, which included works from all four of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (hehe)
 
Friday night I got to cheer on the Iowa Cubs to victory over the Memphis Redbirds. Man, those fans can get uptight!
 
We ate at several other "legendary" places in Memphis, such as The Arcade, Dyer's, Center for Southern Folklore, and Jillian's.
 
I'll have LOTS of pictures to show you in a few days when the CD comes back from Walgreens, and I'll tell more about the trip then.
 
Word of advice, if travelling to Memphis, DO NOT, under any circumstances, stay at the Motel 6 downtown. The service was terrible, the rooms were nasty, it was the worst part of the trip. Thank goodness we did little more than sleep there.

happy belated birthday!

i love memphis. not exactly sure why since upon first glance it seems like a crummy city, but i just get this tingly feeling when i cross the I-40 bridge over the mississippi. have yet to go to a redbirds game, but i highly recommend the Grizzlies basketball games when in season.

ah...now i want to go to memphis...

Wow, I never would have thought a downtown Motel 6 would not be a fantastic place to stay ;)

Next time on Priceline pick at least 3 stars, jk glad to hear you had a good time.
