Beale Street, Memphis TN

Memphis is one of my top 10 favorite towns to visit. Always enjoy going to famous Beale Street and checking out the local music scene there.

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

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.
