Our first plate of BBQ nachos of the trip. These are from Alfred’s, which is on Beale Street. And please let me tell you that these were as good as they look. Pork BBQ with Rotel cheese all over. A side of jalapenos and sour cream = perfection!!
The view down Beale Street after 9 p.m. If you do ever go to Memphis, make sure you get to Beale before 8 p.m., so you don’t get the pat-down and the wand. Yes, they wand you down before entering this street. We stood in line for 40 mins to get on a street.

Mix all ingredients together in the blender with ice (duh). Enjoy!
Oh, the duckies!! We woke up in time on Sunday to go to the Peabody Hotel to see the ducks. At 11 am, ducks march out of an elevator and into this fountain that’s in the middle of the hotel. They even had duck security! No joke! There were three guys walking around with headsets on making sure people didn’t interfere with the March of the Ducks. Click on the link above to read the history of the March.
Before we went home, we knew we had to try some Memphis dry-rub ribs, so we went to this cute little dive called Central BBQ.
Have I mentioned that Memphis is not a safe city? Well there were policeman everywhere. And not just any policeman…super hot ones!! I have never seen so many attractive police officers in one city. These 3 were no exception. I’m sure they would have let me take their picture if I would have just asked, because not only were they the hottest ones ever, but they were always talking to regular people.
So if not for the BBQ and music, take the trip down to see the hot policeman! Oh yeah, there’s some history there too. You can see the Civil Rights Museum, where Martin Luther King Jr. was shot, and where he was shot from. This, unfortunately didn’t make it into our trip, but we only live 4 hours away, so we’ll be back.
I will post pictures and possibly video from the ballroom portion of my trip tomorrow. I need to gather all the courage in the world to be able to put those videos up!
