Entering Mississippi
Stopping for gas in Elvis's hometown

Yes, that Big Star
Portrait of Big Star in the Ardent hallway
The Big Board at Ardent
This probably means you!
Reunion of the legendary Seafood Orchestra at memorial for fellow member Rick Ivy (also late of Panther Burns). You know you're in a music scene town when the Presbyterian minister quotes Tav Falco at the memorial service!
Did not make it there, but snapped a drive-by pic of the billboard
Ruins of U.S. Marine Hospital
Mississippi River Railroad Bridge

Where we didn't stay
One of our host's most prized possessions. And why wouldn't it be?! Thanks, D!
Elvis's favorite restaurant. Didn't get a chance to stop in this trip, but I've eaten there before.

I'm sure you've heard of it.
THE place to meet for ribs in town! Thanks, Ronny!

Of course, true Memphians claim it's not even the best fried chicken in Memphis.
