We just got back from a last minute trip to Memphis. WOW...what a great time we had---stayed out late, listened to lots of music and ate yummy B-B-Q.
We stayed at a little hotel about 4 blocks from Beale Street and 2 blocks from the Mississippi River. They block off about 4 blocks of Beale Street in the evenings. The air is full of fabulous smells and wonderful sounds. All the clubs have live bands, there are bands playing on the street or in alcoves next to outdoor bars. You just walk from one place to another checking out the music. Several times people just started dancing in the street. One big, fun party.
