playing tourist in memphis.

My dear friend Matt Haygood came to visit over Labor Day and we decided to head to Memphis since he had not been in about 6 years.

We got in around 5.30 on Friday and decided to hit up Rhodes to check out all the new buildings and generally to have a wander around. It was a nice stroll down memory lane for us.

After that we made our way downtown and had dinner and drinks at Rendezvous followed by a stop at the Redbirds game:

We decided to make it a proper Memphis night and headed to Beale St after the game. Instead of paying cover at any of the places, we just got a drink - gotta love those roadside bars - and wandered, stopping to listen to the street musicians and to check out the various artists showcasing their talents, including this guy, who is a whiz with a can of spraypaint:

From there we called it a night. Saturday brought us breakfast at Waffle House followed by a trip down to the river. While wandering we learned about exciting upcoming projects down at the river:

We also stumbled upon a random gospel festival:

We strolled a bit more and reminisced about MusicFests of yore...

We also went to the Peabody to see the ducks before settling ourselves in at the Fox and Hound to cheer the Razorbacks on to victory.

We had lunch at the Palace with my parents and Lindsey on Sunday before heading back to Little Rock and continuing our game of pretending to be college students again.

Will post the Little Rock details another day as those pictures are on my camera.
Until then,
Woo pig.
