Well, I am sitting here just thinking about this city. All the things that I have seen and experienced here. Anywhere from the burbs to Midtown to down by the river. Memphis has lots to offer, you just have to get out there and find it.
I walked up and down Beale Street around 5 or 6 pm and got to see some interesting people. The guy in the picture above was painting with spray paint and some kind of spatula thing (sorry, not very good with some English words). I stood there for about 15min and by the time he was done he had a picture of Memphis.
There were lots of street performers on Beale. There is a reason why they call it “Home of the Blues”. One of my favorite things is the fact that you can walk and stop to listen to some awesome local bands playing the blues.
There are lots of restaurants, bars and even souvenir shops. Its a huge mix of local business that have been there for a long time.
Some of the places on Beale that have been there forever are: Blues City Cafe, B.B King Blues Club, Tater Red’s, Memphis Music and A. Schwab’s – from what I hear is closing soon, so sad to hear.
