The FedEx Forum may be a bittersweet venue for me if my hometeam doesn't get their act together. Still excited about the FF!

2. MLK Museum
3. Look for the "Neely's" BBQ restaurant (they are on Food network)
4. You can get some really good crack at most convenience stores in west memphis!
5. Any place on Beale St. rocks, Sun Studio is a must see, Rock 'n' Soul Museum, and the Peabody Duck March.
6. Rendezvous BBQ is a must. Ribs are the best
I'm a Memphis native. The Rendezvous is great, but I prefer Interstate bbq (a Neely's family place) and the Germantown Commissary. The rest of your list is worth it... except maybe the crack.

TN, as a whole, got rocked today... however, not as bad as Northern Alabama.

I feel terrible for them.

Here is an even more incredible view of it...

Its okay. The river should crest next week. The bluffs (river shoreline) has been evacuated. But downtown will be okay and things should be getting much better by the 20th.
On a side note, I thought I wasn't going to get to go, because of money issues and stuff. But I won tickets off the radio station this morning. And now, I'm entered to win an autographed drumhead and backstage passes. WooHoo!!!

Everything seems to be conspiring against Memphis. Weather, professional obligations, and more. It will be interesting to see where Friday evening finds us. At this point the closest guarantee Is that 2 of my 4 tickets will go unused. I truly hope we make it. We deserve to run away, even if for only a short while.

How are ya?! I toured the Gibson factory a couple of years ago and found it very, very cool. That factory has a special connection with the Foo Fighters too. They manufactured the limited edition Dave Grohl DG-335 that he started using on the ESPG tour. It was especially cool for me since I own a Pelham Blue DG-335. We plan on touring the factory again when we go to the Memphis show tomorrow.

Have a great time at the show my friend. Rock and Grohl!

Faith Hope Peace

I don't know if I'm going to do either of those.
BTW, What's the best/most famous resturant in Memphis? I hope there's an In-n-Out Burger in Memphis. Those are amazing.
