Arriving in Memphis at 3am- we were greeted with an amazing staff & quickly fell asleep. Our evening was put into motion with a mouth watering amazing dining experience at Dyers on Beale Street- try out their chicken strips! Claudia and I stopped by Tater Reds Lucky Mojos and seen Tater- plus I got the coolest hoodie! Next stop- Club 152 and checked in with one of my favorite memphians the Vice President of The Blues Foundation Mr. Joe Whitmer and then headed off to the 12 Bar at Jerry Lee Lewis to MC the 2016 International Showcase.
