THE MEMPHIS METAMORPHOSIS: A NEW GENERATION OF SOUL

THE MEMPHIS METAMORPHOSIS: A NEW GENERATION OF SOUL

A curious thing has happened in Memphis over the last few years. As Nashville has reached its peak and turned into an all-out bubble of both tourist and investment insanity, Memphis has quietly stepped up to bat as the true icon of Tennessee with an unmistakable identity. And with the Memphis bicentennial upon us—indeed, the Bluff City turns 200 years old today!—there’s never been a better time to celebrate her metamorphosis as she emerges from her cocoon a full-blown butterfly of cultural integration. Sure, Memphis music is how you undoubtedly know the state’s largest city, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg—it’s also full of great food, innovative art and up-and-coming neighborhoods garnering national attention.

New Eats: Impossible Burger at Hopdoddy

It was a dismal Saturday afternoon, but sometimes you have to run errands no matter how rainy and chilly it is. That’s where I found myself last weekend, and hungry, too, as it was approaching 2 p.m. and I’d skipped breakfast. A friend called to see if I wanted lunch when I was at Poplar and Perkins. I looked around, saw a crowded parking lot at Hopdoddy, and it looked inviting.
