Memphis Day 1

We’re staying at The Peabody again, which is one of my favorite hotels. We arrived in time to see the ducks swim and march, but I didn’t get any pics since we were busy checking in.

After settling in, we hit up The Corner Bar for drinks.

My cat dress always gets me compliments from my fellow crazy cat ladies. I love hearing about other people’s cats. ♥️

We had a late dinner reservation at a restaurant called Flight. The concept is that everything on the menu is a three set flight. The food was absolutely sublime.

I had the cabernet flight:

We got the ocean flight as a starter: bbq shrimp, crab cake, and lobster ravioli.

And for my main course: boursin stuffed filet with potato puree, elk tenderloin with truffle mac, and bison ribeye with potatoes au gratin.

OMGGGGGGGG

And finally: Memphis Belle pie for dessert.

There were dessert flights too, but I was too stuffed to get that much. I can’t pass up genuine southern pecan pie though. Mmm.

This meal alone was worth the four hour drive.

I’ve been super impressed by the mask wearing and social distancing happening down here. The only time things felt too crowded was in the lobby while we were waiting on an elevator, so we took the stairs instead. We’re only on the fourth floor, so we’ve decided to avoid the elevator altogether.

Alrighty – I’m off to enjoy day 2.

Another stop along the way!

It’s fun to road trip with someone who gets that the journey is just as important as the destination. My ex never got that. He never wanted to do impromptu stops to explore the things we’d find along the way. D and I have a lot of fun on our little adventures. I love exploring the country with him!

Next up: three hours til we stop at a new to us brewery. I mean…it’s us, of course we’re hitting a brewery.
