I always love my hometown city of Memphis. But especially in May. There are so many exciting events going on that it definitely makes for my favorite time of year.
This weekend, we have the World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest. Hundreds of teams set up tents/booths and compete. Each tent has a huge party Friday night and judging is on Saturday. I'm planning to head down there Friday afternoon with my girl Brittney, and our guys are meeting up with us later that night. We always have such a great time!
Yes, that would be me taking an ice luge shot a couple of years ago. Proud moment.
BTW if you're from out of town, definitely go with a local. You can't get in each tent unless you know someone.
Then next Friday is Zoo Brew. My best friend is coming in town from STL for the weekend, and we'll be hitting up the zoo for a night of beer tasting with friends. I. Can't. Wait.
And next Sunday is my other favorite event in Memphis...Sunset Symphony. The symphony plays on the river at sunset, and you can take your own picnic basket/cooler/etc. It's such a great time. Well, when it's not raining. Seems to rain every year...
Definitely check out one of these events if you're in the area!
