Happy Monday, folks! Here are your photos and Tweets tagged #ilovememphis from this last week. (It may take just a second to load.) Below that, I have a photo recap of my night at the Broad Avenue Art Walk on Friday.

West Memorials on Broad Avenue creates custom and high-end monuments (yes, tombstones and other, much more elaborate monuments) for families all over the country. They've turned their space into a gallery where artists can exhibit. So cool to wander in and find this. Here's my friend Kendyl talking to the owner,  Paul. Ask him about the memorial he built for the man who once owned the most strip clubs in the U.S.

City and State (under construction retail location at Broad and Collins) had a pop-up shop. Attention hipsters: They'll be selling high-end regional handmade goods and apparel like those fancy jeans from Nashville, Memphis artisans Hardin House and Paper & Play, plus coffee and baked goods, in early 2015. Read more here.

T. Clifton gallery has lots of art. Here's some glass and wood vessels and hand-blown glass ornaments.

Five In One Social Club has this awesome woodcut screenprint map of Memphis. I think they have a few left if you want to purchase this week.

Archicast was closed, but you could get a good view of the type of castings they do.

Spotted on the street: a vintage Press Scimitar newspaper box. (Press Scimitar was a competior of the Commercial Appeal until the 80s.)

Coming soon: a carpentry and woodworking shop on Broad.

This was the first time I'd ever been in Ronin. They're open daily from 4 p.m. to midnight, and they have lots of art, vintage toys and figurines (only the Star Wars ones are for sale), but mostly it's a tattoo artist studio.

Ursela-inspired art in Ronin.

AT-AT walkers and R2D2 for the win! (Also at Ronin.)

Jack Magoo's is gone. Red Zone will reopen at some point in its place. The signage says "casual restaurant, sports bar, cigar bar."

The Water Tower Pavilion was filled with artist booths, Amurica Photo, Henny Penny, Stick 'Em Food truck and more.

Muddy's was open for a a rare pop-up shop (usually the Broad Ave. bakery is closed to the public). I tried a vegan almond cherry cupcake and it was A+ delicious, even if I could tell it was a little different than the "regular" cupcakes. 10/10 will eat this again.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
