OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN 

OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN

LifeDesign magazine, a Mid-South publication that, according to its ads, targets 30-something women with college educations and an income in excess of $40,000, recently published a story titled Entertaining your Guests: Viva Las Memphis! The article is a handy-dandy rundown of Memphis most obvious attractions: The zoo, the Redbirds, Beale Street, and so on. But one assemblage of words (just a verb shy of an actual sentence) caught the Fly s attention: The Rendezvous for ribs, Chez Philippe for a culinary dream (yes, Jose still sets the standard here), Automatic Slim s for N.Y. style and great drinks, Erika s for a German lunch, Cafe Samovar for a Russian treat, or catch a sunset over a beer at Captain Bilbo s. Perhaps LifeDesign should market itself to college-educated, 30-something women who make in excess of $40-G and who have access to a time machine, since the legendary Captain Bilbo s closed its doors sometime in the mid-1990s.
