      I was telling a friend this morning that I am challenging myself to get takeout from at least 3 "new" places before I can reorder from one of my standing places. We'll see how I do :)

      Wondering if most restaurants downtown are open? Specifically Itta Bena or Majestic?

      Coming from an hour away just wanting to know if things are open?

      Is there music on the street on Beale? 

      Is Wet Willies back open?

      Hi Michelle, 

      Almost everything is open all over town, including Itta Bena, Majestic, and Wet Willy's. I strongly suggest making reservations and calling ahead because while places are open, they may have limited space or hours. I can't say if they will have music literally outside on the street, many clubs on Beale will have live music inside.
