... BB King's Blues Club ...
Memphis has always been an interesting city for me, especially after seeing the 2005 movie Hustle & Flow. It's definitely a music town. It was blues & rock'n'roll in the past, hip/hop in the new millennium.

We stayed in Memphis just for 1 night. After doing some inquiry about dinner, we decided to go to the BB King's Blues Club on Beale Street. It was a great location for dinner and music. You can have an idea about the quality of the place when you see the crowd inside (LoL:)) The food is delicious, and the music is fantastic. We were lucky because there was a live performance by BB King's All Stars, very kool blues band. Also there was a very nice gift shop inside the place. (actually not inside, it's an annex :))

The Beale Street is a very kool place to hang out.
... I totally agree :) ...
In other words, it's the heart of the city. There are bars, clubs, gift shops etc. basically everything you need for fun. Also, the Walk of Fame which is designated exclusively for Memphis musicians, singers, writers, and composers is located on this street. Also the home of Memphis Grizzlies NBA team, FedEx Forum is located here.

The second day, we did our classic and hang out at the banks of Mississippi river. The Mud Island Park is a very nice and calm place, and Pyramid Arena, another venue for basketball games is very close as well. Actually, the statue of King Rameses of Egypt in front of the arena was so funny for me. By the way, I strongly recommend the Buckley's Lunch Box which is a very nice restaurant.

To sum up, I like Memphis and I would like to visit this town again. I wish next time I will have a chance to visit Graceland ...
