The river is always the most stunning thing about Memphis to show out of town visitors, so I headed there for a spectacular sunset with my house guest. It was a stunning evening and changed quickly, but I did one quick sketch during one of the permutations. I loved the bridge leading across the water into the setting sun.
S0ulfish for some great catfish (and sweet potato fries with remoulade) is also always a winner. They've expanded recently and doubled their size. I hadn't been since the remodeling was complete. I loved the funkiness of the old place, but it is nice to have plenty of tables for the popular spot. We didn't have to wait. And the silver fish on the wall are pretty cool, even though I miss the "EATS" sign.
