Denis and I have decided that next year we’re going to go to Memphis for our anniversary. Specifically, we’re going to the Memphis in May festival. Why, you ask, would anyone want to go to Memphis in May?
Well, it’s not cuz of Elvis (which is surprising since I was a HUGE Elvis fan growing up).
No, we’re going for the World Championship BBQ competition. Yummy goodness. Last night on Food TV they featured Al Roker’s BBQ Festival – which was all about his participation in the Memphis in May contest. After an hour salivating in front of our tv, we agreed that’s where we want to go for our next vacation.
So, next year we’ll be heading to Tennessee for a week – we’ll hit Nashville for a few days and then spend the remainder of the week in Memphis hitting the BBQ contest (as well as Graceland, I expect).
I can’t WAIT.
