After Graceland, I did a little exploring around the streets of Memphis. My first stop was a visit to High Cotton Brewing, where I talked to the brewer for 3 hours! After talking to him about all of their plans for the upcoming year, I'm really excited to see what this place has in store for the future. Afterwards, I stopped at the site where MLK was shot, had some Memphis style BBQ and even listened to some music on Beale Street. The next day I paid a visit to the legendary Sun Studio, where people like Elvis and Johnny Cash got their start and then headed over to Gus' Fried Chicken where I proceeded to have the best fried chicken of my life. I spend the rest of the day just walking around downtown and taking in the sights.
If you are ever in Memphis, go visit High Cotton Brewing, I highly recommend it!
