The Saturday agenda is still open to suggestions and "shuffle"- for some things.
Jan and I will be staying in Clarksdale Friday night, after the Doe's
stop. If it is early enough we may go "Blues-listening" late that night. We will be looking for a Tamale
breakfast in Clarksdale, MS before we head north to Memphis later that morning.
Otherwise the COZY CORNER
was suggested for lunch and unless we get a better suggestion will be the place we meet in Memphis to begin the activities. That could give us enough time in the afternoon to do the Beale Street Walk and Dyers
Stop...or other stuff as you wish.
Dinner/Supper is pretty well set for Leonard's BBQ
. The dinners each year seem to take quite a bit of time for you early nighters. Those who do the late-night scene could save their visit to Beale Street for that evening, but remember it is Valentines Day and the dinner-clubs will be crowded! That Beale Street visit should include a stop at Dyer's Burgers
later in the evening. Don't let Paul fool any of you. He was the guy who wanted one of those Burgers fried in 90 year-old deep fat...not Janet or me !! I watched him eat one and decided I was glad I did not partake!
We have received no suggestions for Sunday Brunch as most folks seem to be using Sunday to head for home. That's fine. We may stop in Doe's
in Paducah on the way home Sunday for a 'comparison dinner!
Please take a minute and confirm your participation in the Friday Dinner in Mississippi and the various Saturday Stops in Memphis. We will need to firm up a fairly solid reservation for Doe's
and must give Leonard's BBQ
time to set aside space for our Saturday dinner.
Also as Rick Mentioned... Find your Hawaiian Shirts. They can be worn to Doe's but are Mandatory on Saturday at Leonard's ! Also dig out the examples of your regional Roadfood items and bring at least "some" to give away as "Door Prizes !! (Another fine tradition to keep alive
