Re: “Jockeys & Juleps Derby Party

Why don't they bring back the Tennessee Derby and they could even rename it? Memphis once hosted the largest and most prestigious horse racing event in the South and I believe there are tens of thousand of Memphians that would love to see a resurrection of horse racing in Memphis. It would also bring thousands of visitors to Memphis for the event.

Re: “'State-of-the-Art' Tennis Facility in the Works for Memphis

I highly doubt the public will get to use it that much. I thought they were also going to have one main court with stadium seating.

Re: “Atomic Rose Opening Wednesday

I believe they will do well and I hope once they're up and going they will consider opening for the lunch hour.

Re: “Millington: One of Tennessee’s Five Best Cities to Live In

There are some good things happening in Millington and I applaud the leaders for their efforts. However, I am not sure why the city leaders of Millington have not recruited an entertainment company to build a world class amusement and water park? Especially when they have thousands of acres of available land. It would bring more commerce to the city and county, because it would make Millington a destination for families in the region as well as visitors from all of the country. There is so much potential growth for Millington.

Re: “Beale Cover Likely to Generate $500K for Security Measures This Summer

The only time they need a cover charge would be if they were having a concert on Beale St, but this present cover charge is some bullshit. What are they going to do if the businesses, on Beale, experience a decline in customers, because of this stupid fee? I agree, there need to better lightning, but there also need to be foot traffic in those dead spots. That is why they need to build out Beale and its cross streets with new bars/restaurants/ entertainment venues. Where the Handy Museum is located is a dead spot, and they should consider moving it onto Beale St, by Church Park.

Re: “The Other Red, White & Blue: Orquesta Akokán Brings Cuba's Finest

I look forward to tonight and I would love to have a Latin club where I can hear live music on a nightly or weekly basis. I wish that someone would open a Cuban and Latin club that has live music downtown, on Broad Ave, or Overton Square, because this is something Memphis is missing. It would be a huge success. Alex,how can we make this happen?

Re: “Memphis Tourism Broke Records Last Year

Funkbrs, I didn't know COGIC owned most of downtown. Why are they not more involved and more vocal about the downtown redevelopment? COGIC is bringing their convocation back to Memphis so maybe they like what is happening in Memphis.
I agree, they could have a concert series at RCP, and Beale St, but they could also have one at the Shell too. I want to see activity across the entire city and not concentrated in just one area.

Re: “Memphis Tourism Broke Records Last Year

They need to keep the momentum going and make Memphis more attractive for tourist and visitor friendly for families to vacation. An amusement and water park is something this area needs badly.
Beale Street Management should start a summer concert series and bring in A list musical artists to play Beale Street. They can set up a stage on 4th, in front of Church Park, or on Main street and let the concert goers pack out Beale Street. There needs to be a multipurpose open amphitheater downtown that can be used for large events like a concert and can be converted into an outdoor ice skating rink during the winter season.
They seriously need to redevelop Mud Island and build the aquarium some where downtown, because it would definitely be a hot tourist attraction.
I read a few months ago one of the city council members was talking about bringing horse racing back to Memphis. That would definitely be a positive for the city.
