Memphis in May Recap and Roundup

31 05 2010

Downtown Memphis skyline, including the iconic Memphis Pyramid, on the edge of the mighty Mississippi River.

Grab a barbecue sandwich, and sit down with Sweet Iced Tea one more time as we look back over our month of Memphis in May.

In case you missed any of our spotlight this month of the mid-South’s favorite city, here were a few of our favorites:

We started it all out by explaining a little about what Memphis in May is really all about.

Gave you plenty of options for BBQ around the city.

Took a walk down Beale Street.

Grocery shopped at Piggly Wiggly and learned a little history about how PW changed history with one of the South’s most beloved institutions.

Visited the Pink Palace Museum.

Ate breakfast at Brother Juniper’s. Yum!

Saw the infamous three crosses at Bellevue.

Felt the soul of Mr. B.B. King.

Experienced a Shoe-Nami.

Ate a business lunch with the Good Ol’ Boys over at Morgan Keegan.

Took a good, long look at the Memphis Skyline and the Mississippi River.

Ate famous dry-rubbed ribs at Rendezvous.

Took a walk in Confederate Park.

Soaked up some musical history at Sun Studios.

Stayed at the gorgeous Peabody hotel.

Ate a peanut butter and banana sandwich with the ghost of Elvis at Graceland.

And topped that off with a candy treat from Dinstuhl’s.

And finally, picked out our favorite spot to settle down in the neighborhood.

Well, there we go, we hope we gave you some of the best of Memphis, or at least the next best thing after Elvis himself giving you a tour. And some of us might, just might, still secretly believe he’s alive.

We’ve got a lot more in store this summer, so tell a friend, add us to your Google Reader, and get ready! Summer, here we come!
