thursday, may 17th

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 CafÇ. 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 CafÇ Zanzibar on S. Main (if you haven t eaten there yet wow!).
