Elvis Week 2011

Today I am headed to Memphis, Tennessee for vacation. Tomorrow is the official start to Elvis Week 2011 and I've had my tickets for months. 
I've got things planned out non stop, daily for every day that I'm there. I have the feeling that I'll be needing a vacation to recover from my vacation. 


I'll be Rollin' On the River, riding on a ferry boat down the mighty Mississippi. I'll be watching performances by tribute artists and I'll even be seeing the King in Concert. They've got a great event where a live band will perform the concert while footage of Elvis is on screen. It should be interesting. 
I'm also going to try to get to Tunica, Mississippi to see what all the talk is about with the casinos! Hopefully, I'll make it down there but since I've got a tight schedule the 45 minute drive might not happen. 

I'm sure I'll be getting some pork chops (if you know me, you know I love pork chops) from one of the best BBQ places in all the land, Marlowes. For real, if you go to Memphis, hit up Marlowes. They have some of the best bbq and food. Plus, if you need a ride there, they'll come pick you up in their giant pink Cadillac for free! 
One of the meals, I've ate at Marlowes
I'm sure it's going to be an amazing week! Hopefully, the weather won't be too rough but since it's the summer and in the south, I think I'll just be trying to keep hydrated and cool. Have a great week everyone, I'll catch you on the flip side!
