... Chicken tenders with steamed veg and mash I had Meatloaf (Elvis' favorite) with rice and beans and cornbread and a Bud beer. Not bad.
There are various displays around the plaza. One called 'Sincerely Elvis' has costumes etc from his Vegas 'comeback' shows. There is also a display of Elvis' cars and other things. Each display exits through a souvenir shop. You can also look inside Elvis' two private jets.
Marie had enough by ...
... of blues, soul and rock & roll. It's panders now to tourists happy to hear a few tired blues songs mixed in with some 50's and 60's rock and roll, bit of Motown, RnB, and classic rock thrown in to keep the drunken masses sated. Nothing authentic here.
Sun Studio and Stax Records, on the other hand, were all I had hoped they would be. Full of friendly, rockin' and soulful ghosts from the incredibly rich musical history that happened within those two ...
... It got so many requests that the DJ Dewey Phillips played the song repeatedly to end his show. B.B. King, Rufas Thomas, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and later U2 all recorded at Sun Studio. The studio is incredibly well preserved. The spot where Elvis sang his first song is marked on the floor.
We finished this day with a great meal at Central BBQ. Great Ribs and ice cold beer brewed a few blocks away!
... down on the ground in front of Zach so he could put 75 cents in it for Zach, so we did jokingly. Others immediately started coming up and putting dollar bills in the cap too and literally in 3 minutes he had earned $6.75. People said it was best thing they had seen all night and thought he was awesome, I do not think they were that impressed with Chris's drumming skills..haa. We freaked out a bit and questioned our parenting soliciting our 3 year old busking at 9pm ...
... lamb and ravioli and a quale dish with pasta, finished it all then came desert time. For desert I ordered cheesecake, chocolate cake and banana caramel cake, once again best deserts I’ve ever had. We gave them a massive tip and waddled home with full bellies then fell asleep in a food coma! Memphis was really different to everywhere else it had so much culture ridiculous food, awesome music and really fun night life as well as a lot of really cool history! Glad I got to see it ...
