The Beauty Shop and other Memphis lovelies

The Beauty Shop

We had a super duper fun weekend in Memphis visiting our dear friends Hunter and Terrah. They moved there this summer for Hunter to attend med school and Terrah was fortunate enough to find a really great job with Ful bags (the main company is co-owned by Justin Timberlake!!!). SO, they're both doing great in Memphis town and we decided to pay them a visit.

Friday night we hit Memphis Pizza Co. for dinner and then went to Young Ave. Deli for drinks. They had lovely artwork on painted on the tables and I took a pic of ours. Saturday we headed to the Rendezvous for yumminess in BBQ form...the ribs are to die for and so was my pork shoulder sandwich. We walked around on South Main, kinda the artsy district. We saw the Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his last speech. We also visited the Cooper Young Festival and had fun people-watching. I saw a Sugar Glider that this man brought and it was too adorable!

We finished off the evening at Molly Fontaine's...the coolest bar in an old house. It was lovely and we had a great time, great drinks, and great service. For brunch the next morning we hit The Beauty Shop...a great place for breakfast. The Bloody Mary's were excellent and they still have some of the original hair-dryer chairs from the old beauty salon. We think Priscilla Presley used to get her hair done there :)

It was a great weekend...Memphis has so much character and it's always fun to hang out with Hunter and Terrah. They are so easy and so much fun to be around. We miss them dearly. You should take a trip to Memphis soon if you've never been. It's a cool place.
