We were taking the river loop trolley one night with some out of town guests. A man playing the harmonica was also aboard. We have brought visitors downtown to take the trolley before, but that music made the trip really special. It was simple, yet gave a taste of the Memphis music that we hear so much about. Our guests were really enjoyed the ride. What a great idea!
I'm disappointed in the Krogers on Union. Feel like the Kroger people didn't look at what the store actually sold, and stocked what they felt like it would sell. On the plus side, the candy and soda selections have more then doubled! And I don't have to worry about having money if someone helps me out with the groceries. They don't even offer now to take them out now. And I don't have to remember anyone's name either, because I never seem to see the same people twice working there.
I can't help but thinking how cool it would have been to have had a playhouse in the old Methodist church auditorium that was torn down...
Where would the Hattiloo theater be located in this?
Memphis is the best "city on the Mississippi River in the state of Tennessee"
--A homeless woman who has set up shop on a sidewalk proves to be a key witness for solving the mystery. She has a hovel constructed out of tarps, and this seems to be her turf, long-term. Unless it was in an alley or something, would a city let a homeless person do that?--
Does anyone remember Jacqueline Smith at the Lorraine Motel and her eternal protest with the National Civil Rights Museum?
Central BBQ has a good brisket sandwich. I'm from TX also, and rather have beef. Just make sure to ask for the slaw on the side.
