2018.03.27 My Birthday In Memphis

Last updated: None
This year I spent my birthday with the person I love in Memphis, TN. How lucky is that?

We went to Stax Museum. When we arrived we had to wait for a short film which started the tour so we went to the gift shop to see the souvenirs. While we were in there two separate groups approached D'Arcy and I and said how they enjoyed D'Arcy singing "Johnny Be Goode" at the King Palace Cafe on Beale Street the previous day.

The museum was interesting. It included the actual studio "A" where many of the Stax hits were created. The instruments of Booker T and the MGs, the Stax house band, were on display.

The Cadillac given to Isaac Hayes by Stax was also on display.

The last room we ended up in was the gift shop and D'Arcy bought a Stax fridge magnet.

We also visited Beale street and dropped into the King Palace Cafe and listened to the same band as the previous day. D'Arcy was asked for the ID when ordering drinks.

We came home to get our RV ready for our trip back to Toronto. We had a great time. See you guys soon.
