Making a List, And Checking it Twice

52 things to do in Memphis, one for every week of the year.




(page 4 of 5)

 

31

Order a Joe’s Special milk shake at Wiles-Smith. Yep, the name fits.

 

32

Stop and stare at the bison at Shelby Farms. They’ll stare back.

 

33

Find your favorite flavor at Jerry’s Sno Cones. Take your time; they’ve got plenty to choose from.

 

34

Get a hug from B.J. Chester-Tamayo: If you did, it means you’re about to eat one of her amazing soul food meals at her restaurant, Alcenia’s.

 

35

Take a selfie — that’s a self-portrait for you oldsters — in front of the “Memphis” painting/mural in Cooper-Young.

 

36

Wave your “growl towel” with the rest of Grizz Nation at the FedExForum.

 

37

Picnic on the leftfield bluff at AutoZone Park (we suggest an evening game). It’s a great place for a wedding proposal. Take our word for it.

 

38

Split a famous “Diver” bucket with friends at Silky O’Sullivan’s on Beale, and raise a toast to our dear departed friend.

 

39

Walk like an Egyptian over to the U of M and visit Ramesses II, formerly by The Pyramid.

 

40

Enjoy a sausage and cheese plate and rack of ribs at The Rendezvous, and when the waiters smart-talk you (it’s part of the experience), just smart-talk ’em back.
