Memphis, TN

We are spending a week in Memphis, TN.  There is a lot to do here! We went down to Beale Street the first night here for music and BBQ.  Then yesterday we checked out a couple of breweries and enjoyed live music and good food at Lafayette's in Midtown:

Beale Street in downtown Memphis is closed off in the evenings for the night crowd just as in Austin.  Unfortunately for us,  most places here allow smoking!

 We enjoyed the brews at Wiseacre and, as you can see, so did a lot of other on this beautiful day!
 Bosco's in Midtown also had some nice beer:
 Right across from Bosco's, we enjoyed live music by Mason Jar Fireflies and some delicious shrimp and grits and fried green tomatoes!  Yum!

 We sat upstairs and had a great view of Mason Jar
Fireflies.  They were very good.  Wrote a lot of
their songs!

 Love this mural!
