I love the music at Blues City Café. Brad Birkedahl is the best thing on Beale Street.
Soooo true about the music being so loud that gives me a headache. I went to BB Kings and I could not hear the waiter speak, never mind trying to talk to my dinner companions - we ended up texting when trying to order appetizers.
Really bad idea!! We need more traffic lanes and more parking downtown, not less!! The reason why there was little negative impact on traffic when Riverside was down to two lanes was because so many people opted to go to restaurants in either Mississippi or Germantown/Cordova/Collierville in order to avoid the traffic nightmare on Riverside. I know friends and I opted not to frequent places downtown during MIM with the exception of The Peabody and Madison hotels (valet parking). The one day we ventured downtown, we parked at The Peabody and went to catch the trolley - we waited for close to a half hour only to find out the power was down. Walked back to The Peabody and drove to Collierville for dinner.
How about Memphis Heritage? They could raise the funds needed and use it for their headquarters. They could lease space to other non-profits to pay for expenses.
I've been waiting for cronuts in Memphis since my friend brought me a few from NYC not too long ago. Heavenly!
This Memphis waterfront project is a joke already so this fits right in. The pyramid would have been a more suitable choice as the description provided by Jerry Manders so acurately describes the Bass Pro disaster - “The decision to put a gigantic Bass Pro store with its own indoor cypress swamp in a building modeled after an Egyptian tomb is absolutely in keeping with our museum’s mission,” Manders says. “It told us that this was where we needed to be.” Both the pyramid and the landing causes my eyes to bleed.
Please tell us how you really feel.
Really? There's one born every minute and 700 have signed this petition.
