Some Memphis Love!

We had a fantastic weekend in Memphis.  Although Chicago will always be home, it feels great to get back to Memphis.  I could not have asked for a better weekend in terms of weather and as always we had great company!  We were able to hit up a few of our favorite restaurants and although my fingers are a little puffy from all that sodium, it was totally worth it!  Here are a few pictures from our adventures…

The first stop is the BOY’s favorite…

Check out his T-shirt…can you tell he’s excited?!

A full plate of WORLD FAMOUS fried chicken…

GONE!  No room for our favorite sweet potato pie.

A quick rest and then we’re on to our first of two trips to the Flying Saucer for beer and pretzels.  The Saucer has more beers on tap then any other place I have seen.  Plus, if you’ve met me once, there is a good chance that I’ve mentioned the soft pretzels served with queso at the Flying Saucer.  I love to wash them down with a wheat beer!

The next day we went to the Flying Fish for fish tacos, fried shrimp and hush puppies.  Unfortunately, I ate my food so quickly that I wasn’t able to take a picture.  We spent the rest of the day bumming around Beale Street enjoying some live music, sunshine, and of course more beer and pretzels (at our second trip to the Saucer).

It was sad to leave Memphis, especially saying goodbye to our friends.  But, it is time to enjoy a meal that is not fried!  We are both looking forward to our next trip to the mid-south!  And trying to convince our friends to come up north for some Chicago favorites…once the weather warms up of course!
