... bowl of Championship Gumbo, Pulled pork and Voodoo potatoes and Bread. The Gumbo was wonderful. The rest was good - ribs a bit spicey for Marie. I had a local beer which tasted like Fat Yak from home and Marie had a Sex on the Beach cocktail. We left some pork and potatoes because we were full. $66 all up including tip.
Caught the 9.30 Shuttle, back to Heartbreak Hotel by 10, bed by 10.30. Up early for 8pm shuttle to Greyhound ...

... another walk around the stalls and then headed back up to Beale Street for a few more cold ones.
After a couple of beers we headed back towards the trolley car, but not before calling into Memphis Music and purchasing a guitar for Aaron. This ain't no ordinary guitar it's made of an old gasoline can! It's a unique piece that will be well loved I'm sure. He was given a free bottleneck slide and I know he's chomping at the bit to play it. We had a laugh ...
