As some may have noticed in our Cootie Calendar, Denis and I have an upcoming trip to Memphis and Nashville. I spent part of yesterday planning things to do while we’re visiting those cities, but I’d love to hear from those of you who have been there – what do you recommend?
We’ll do some of the obvious things: visit Opryland, visit Graceland, tour a couple historic homes, and hang out in a couple bars to hear the live music. I’ve made reservations at a restaurant in Memphis (Cielo) and we plan on getting together with friends one night for dinner in Nashville. We’ll definitely seek out the antique/art gallery area of each city – we love buying at least one piece of art from whatever city we visit.
Any other ideas? Bear in mind that while in Memphis the bulk of our time will be spent at the World Championship BBQ Festival, which is the reason we are going in the first place.
