Today, of course, officially kicks of the Memphis in May World Championship
Barbecue Cooking Contest, and while I commend all who try their talents at
the art of cooking the pig, I still maintain there is none finer than that
served up at the Big S Lounge by Mr. Hardaway. The Redbirds are
playing New Orleans tonight at AutoZone Park. And while you re downtown, you
may want to go hear Don McMinn and Preston Shannon at B.B. King
s. Or James Govan (a treasure) & the Boogie Blues Band at Rum
Boogie Caf. Or those wild and crazy Dempseys at Elvis Presley s
Memphis. Or the Buonis at the Sunset Serenade happy-hour party on the
Plantation Rooftop at The Peabody. Or live jazz at Caf Zanzibar on S.
Main (if you haven t eaten there yet wow!).
