Grab a camera and come down to the river to see the American Queen steamboat while it's docked at Beale Street Landing Thursday and Friday.

The christening by Priscilla Presley is Friday at 3 p.m. and the boat leaves at 5 p.m. Until then, visitors can see it from the walkway above the cobblestone landing or from inside Beale Street Landing from 8:30-2:30 Thursday and 2:30-4:30 Friday. There is a good vantage point from the grassy roof of the future restaurant. But visitors cannot board the boat due to Homeland Security restrictions.

The landing and cobblestones are still works in progress. The Riverfront Development Corporation has scheduled a presentation of its revised plan for the Cobblestone Landing to Memphis Landmarks Commission for Thursday at 5 p.m. at City Hall. A presentation of the cobblestones plan and the landscaping plan for Beale Street Landing is scheduled for May 2nd at the Downtown Memphis Commission Design Review Board meeting.
