Welcome to the south.  The flight from MSP to MEM was annoying delayed.  However, NWA made up for it by painlessly putting Erin and myself up in FC.  The seats were much more comfortable in the older aircraft.  We were falling aslseep by the time the aircraft was moving to take off.  The flight was otherwise uneventful.  We still beat Kasey to MEM but not by much. We chose to try some of Interstate BBQ for dinner.  The ribs were not good.  The sauce was ok.  Seriously avoid the ribs.  They were fatty and not good.  The coleslaw was worse.  It looked like it was potato salad made with cabbage.  And it tasted icky.  No pictures.  I didn't want to ruin the lens on my camera :)
The second flight was on a teeny jet.  Very teeny.  I had to duck to enter the jet and the stay ducked while walking the aisle.  But the flight was boring.  Then to the hotel.  The new Homewood Suites.  It was a well done property.  I am not sure if it was a new build or just a remodel but Hilton did a good job with this property.  The hotel itself opened sometime in the past 4 weeks.  The staff there was very friendly and helpful.  The room was also quite nice if on the small side.  But there was a kitchen with a full sized refrigerator and freezer.  Now if we just had some ice cream.....
Breakfast in the morning was decent.  Nothing extraordinary but it filled us up and got us going.
