This month marks one year that I’ve been living in Georgia since moving from California, and it’s been great, I still really enjoy living here.
That all said, this week I took my first road trip on the east coast to my next work site.
I drove from my house in Georgia heading up north to Oak Ridge Tennessee.
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.
A few years ago I had the pleasure and good fortunate to be invited to attend a friend’s epic party up in the hills of Placerville in California.
It was a fun filled afternoon and evening at a beautiful enchanted hilltop estate celebrating our friend Tim’s birthday and his annual Paella Party.
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.
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.
Spent some time working in Memphis Tennessee this past January. It was the first time I had ever been to the city that I had heard so much about all my life.
Have I mentioned I am a huge fan of music? Memphis is the birthplace of Rock n Roll.
Needless to say I was very excited to be visiting and working in Memphis Tennessee!
While working in Ann Arbor Michigan, another restaurant that came highly recommended was Tomukun, which is a restaurant with two sides.
One side is a Noodle Bar serving Pho and more and the other (where we dined) was as described on their website, a Korean BBQ restaurant and bar in downtown Ann Arbor Michigan that features table-top grills, classic Korean soul food and a variety of Asian draft beers, soju, makgeulli, and cocktails.
