New Post, New Day.

Things are looking up.

Today, I visited the Civil Rights Museum and took a tour of the Gibson Guitar Factory. Both were wonderful! I recommend them both highly.

I'm also looking forward to all of the fun activities going on around Downtown Memphis this weekend for Halloween. Paul and Phillip both outlined the weekend very well, so I'll point you to their blogs.

Sarabee also mentioned a fun article on her blog today. It's called "12 Places to Eat on Your Hipster Journey to Memphis" and it sounds tasty. Check it out here. Probably my favorite thing is that he mentions the BP gas / sushi station. I, of course, know just where this is and I have completely tried it! It's not bad at all-- and is actually homemade there at the BP station. :-)

Another "new" place I tried today is Sleep Out Louie's. Although I hear about Sleep Out's all the time from Paul and my co-workers, I've never been before. Oh wait, I should rephrase-- I have never been there to eat before. On one occasion, the bartender there was gracious enough to make change for me on my way to another place that only accepted cash. But anyway, today I actually stayed and had lunch. It was a great atmosphere and tasty food. I had the chicken fingers, french fries (with ranch and honey mustard), and sweet tea. I recommend it.

On another note, the Mpact Memphis party last night was fun, despite it being outdoors in the cold and rain. Around half of the party ended up being held in the gym of the building. I am a definite fan of the occasional party challenge... it always makes for a fun memory and good story. I should note that the party was much larger than I expected... and being that it was in multiple rooms, it was even more impressive that the roof was completely full. In case you haven't seen it yet, Mpact Memphis now has a Myspace page. You should check it out and be sure to ask to be their friend:

Well, that's about it for now. I'm tired; it's late.
