New Stuff Downtown and a Walk Through the Old Forest 

Went to the Music Foundation's new Musicians' Resource Center on South Main last night. (My friend Jeff is secretly a Memphis music mogul, but don't tell anyone.) It was pretty swank. Almost made me wish I played some instrument, just so I could go there and use their computers.

Then we headed over to the new downtown Blue Monkey. At the time the old Blue Monkey burned down, I think I was eating lunch there about once a week ...

Check out Mary Cashiola's In the Bluff blog and learn about what's new downtown and what's old in Midtown.
