“"Smoke is our Sauce" is their moto. You may pick your sauce type. The newer restaurants are nice. The older ones, have a lot of personality, but the rest rooms need renovating. Several in Memphis, all have great food. ”

“The Overton Park Conservancy’s gateway project has made the city’s crown jewel a more welcoming place. The arched sculpture that artist Tylur French of Youngblood Studio created from scrap bicycles was installed at the intersection of East Parkway and Sam Cooper Blvd in February 2014. The sculpture weighs 7,000lbs and is made up of more than 300 bicycles, each welded onto a steel frame. Yvonne Bobo’s Rhapsody was recently installed at the gateway beside golf clubhouse. This ring-like structure is a movable sculpture that opens on a pivot. The individual birds that form the structure are made of COR-TEN steel and bronze and will change color as they age. Two more gateways will be installed over the next few months: Ben Butler’s Growth at the one adjacent to the East Parkway Playground (this simple but dramatic archway, built from layers of steel, will call to mind the many natural forms found in the Old Forest), and another from Tylur French called Art Nouveau at the gateway between the Rainbow Lake Playground and Overton Park. It will feature bollards that control vehicle access while also offering educational panels about the plants of the forest. Steel Guitar -- sculptor Christopher Fennell’s 2012 installation of a monumental gateway at the Levitt Shell -- honors the heritage, architecture, and mission of this beloved Memphis concert venue located centrally in Overton Park. This dynamic work of art, inspired by the silhouette of an electric guitar, was designed and fabricated by Fennell using recycled steel.”

“Like it says in the title, Gus's is indeed world famous, and justifiably so! Samin Nosrat (Salt Fat Acid Heat author) has even attempted to recreate their recipe in her now-popular book. NOTE: All of their food is fried in peanut oil, so if you have nut allergies, this is likely not for you.”

“I can't make a list and not include Beale. The history is incredible. Now it's mostly neon and bars. Lots of bars, restaurants, and live music that they think tourists would like. I go maybe once or twice a year. You can have an open container on the street and I think they serve til 5 or 6 AM. It's fun to walk with a drink in your hand. LOTS of great souvenir shops.”

“At 4,500 acres, Shelby Farms Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country. Located in Memphis, Tennessee, the Park is both a vibrant community hub and a retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban life. The Park features more than 40 miles of trails, both paved and unpaved, that are popular for walking, biking, running and hiking. The Park's trail network includes Shelby Farms Park Greenline, an iconic 10.65 mile paved cycling and pedestrian trail that connects the heart of Memphis to the heart of Cordova through Shelby Farms Park. The Park is also home to more than 20 bodies of water which provide plenty of opportunities for fishing. The Park is also home to several private event venues. Whether you are planning a picnic for 50 or a banquet for 500, Shelby Farms Park has unique indoor and outdoor settings for every type of event. The FedEx Event Center is Memphis's most unique venue. With over 7,200 square feet of flexible space, the Lakeside Ballroom is the perfect place for weddings and receptions, corporate events and other social gatherings. The entire west side of the venue is floor to ceiling windows that offer an expansive view of Hyde Lake. The stunning lakeside views (and beautiful sunsets!) are unrivaled.”

“The Peabody is probably best known around the world for a custom dating back to the 1930s. The General Manager of the time, Frank Schutt, had just returned from a weekend hunting trip in Arkansas. He and his friends found it amusing to leave their live decoy ducks in the hotel fountain. The guests loved the idea, and since then, ducks have played in the fountain every day.”

“Brunch gets a makeover at this Cooper Young hotspot, which is completely packed on Sundays with Midtowners looking for an upgrade to everyday omelettes. Try the Beneduck -- spiced, sugared crispy duck with jalapeño jam -- or country ham with red-eye gravy, green apples, and bleu cheese over eggs and hash browns. Spirits-wise, the Bad Boy Bloody Mary and the Big Boy Mimosa have you covered.”
