After we determined to go to Tennessee, I knew just about immediately that we must make a street journey of it.
With that, moderately than stick to at least one metropolis your complete time – it was determined that the journey can be a three metropolis break can be simply the factor (which is pretty doable seeing as we have been right here for about 9 days in complete).
With that, we headed off to Memphis – staying on the Madison Resort, which is normally house to a tremendous rooftop bar however alas, we arrived proper in the course of renovations to the lodges and so there have been no rooftop sunsets available right here.
The drive to Memphis from Nashville is about three hours and so arrived simply in time for lunch. We had no actual large plans for this night – simply to absorb the environment in Memphis (extra on that later) and so off we went in the hunt for meals.
Maciel’s Taco Store turned out to be simply the spot we would have liked, as we settled into an unintentional Mexican feast.
Unintentional as a result of I began off pondering “Oh, I’ll simply get a fajita…however I’m fairly hungry so I’ll get a facet of tacky nachos to go together with it.”. Effectively it seems you get some nachos already along with your meals (discovered this out after), then I received the precise nachos I ordered and a ginormous portion of fajitas with one other ginormous burrito for Lloyd.
Completely scrumptious however far more meals than we’d initially anticipated! 😀 (Although I’d fortunately do that another time proper about now.
By the point we have been finished with lunch, we just about wanted a wheelbarrow to roll us out of Maciel’s!
The one plan we had confirmed for the night was to go to the long-lasting Peabody Resort the place there was a rooftop occasion with stay music on.
The rooftop occasion occurs each week and there’s stay music, meals, dancing and many sundown views over Memphis available. (It’s additionally fairly cheap – I believe it’s $15 to get in and $20 for VIP entry – VIP contains meals and a separate cordoned off space).
The Peabody can be recognized for its resident geese who every single day have a procession from their penthouse house down the lifts and stroll to the fountains the place they chill out within the lap of duck-luxury till the night once they head upstairs for bedtime. It’s like one thing out of a storybook and garners fairly the group! 😀
We arrived simply because the occasion was getting began (i.e. pretty early) and received ourselves some drinks to kick issues off.
After spending a number of days working full of a number of actions – it was fairly a deal with to simply sit back within the solar (Memphis feels a lot hotter than Nashville by the best way so when the solar begins to set like it’s now, it’s simply good!) with ice-cold cocktails.
Quickly sufficient, the music kicked off, dancing ensued and it was simply completely good!
