Walkin' in Memphis...

After a brief (but delicious) stop in Nashville, we made our way across Tennessee to another music-oriented town. Memphis is known for a few things: Elvis, the blues, barbeque, and (apparently) no open container laws. The main strip in Memphis is Beale Street, which is similar to Bourbon Street in New Orleans, only more music and less of... everything else that happens in New Orleans.

Look at all those neon signs! You just know it's gonna be a good time...

 B.B. King's Blues Club on Beale

 Memphis tourism breakdown - 25% history/music/food, 75% Elvis

There's a crew of street performers called the Beale Street Flippers - they do this all night long!

 We had dinner at the Blues City Cafe: BBQ ribs and fried catfish - a true Memphis feast

Tomorrow's a big day - Sun Studio and GRACELAND!!!
