What Bad Economy?

Posted By on Sun, Feb 1, 2009 at 4:00 AM

In the midst of bad times it's worth noting a remarkable achievement for Memphis and FedExForum.

In slightly less than 24 hours, from Friday night to Saturday night, the arena attracted more than 53,000 people to three events: The AC/DC concert, the University of Memphis-Houston basketball game, and the Grizzlies-Lakers basketball game.

That's a pretty good stimulus, a pretty good boost for downtown, and pretty good indication that there is still plenty of purchasing power in the Memphis economy, and as magician David Copperfield used to say, a good trick.
