Bucket of Blood Saloon (and beer)

Beers, Breweries, Events

Location:  1 South C Street, Virginia City, Nevada

There is an old mining town named Virginia City that looks like it has been frozen in time up in the Nevada hills about 30 miles south of Reno.

The town has been a hot spot for tourists and motorcyclist alike for decades, especially during the annual Street Vibrations motorcycle event, where I first set my eyes on Virginia City while out on a local area ride my some buddies.

B.B. Kings Blues Club, Memphis TN

January 2018

While working in Memphis Tennessee last month I got a chance to visit and walk around famous Beale Street, home of the American Blues music.

After walking around the street for a while, checking out both sides of the street and all the shops and restaurants along the couple of short blocks, my co-worker and I decided to grab some lunch and so we headed into B.B. King’s Blues Club.

This weekend I finally had some time to fire up my motorcycle and go for a real ride.

For the first time since I moved to Georgia, I went on a 100+ mile motorcycle ride.
Heck, I just realized, this is actually the first “big” ride I’ve ever done on the east coast.

Beale Street, Memphis TN

January 2018

Put on my blue suede shoes
And I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the pouring rain
W.C. Handy, won’t you look down over me
Yeah, I got a first class ticket
But I’m as blue as a boy can be
Then I’m walking in Memphis
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale
Walking in Memphis
But do I really feel the way I feel?
– Marc Cohn

Rendezvous, Memphis TN

January 2018

 

One day while working in Memphis Tennessee, my co-workers and I decided to try some local BBQ for lunch so we headed over to a famous rib joint downtown called Rendezvous.  I had heard about this place before and looked forward to checking it out.

We parked in a nearby parking structure and walked to the alley where, strangely enough, the entrance to the restaurant is located. As we walked we could smell the smoke from the charcoal-fired pits all the way down the block. It was pretty easy to find the entrance just by following our noses.
