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.

      Thanks Tad! The blog includes some info and events from the Memphis suburbs/general Mid-South area on occasion. Many of my readers live in the surrounding areas and are interested in what’s going on just outside city limits as well as strictly inside the limits. Take a look at the blog’s calendar for more strictly-Memphis ideas.
