Come to Memphis!

I love this photo of Kyle.

In the picture, he is enjoying drinks with friends at Earnestine and Hazel's in Downtown Memphis. The place used to be a brothel* but has since been renovated and transformed into a lovely bar. The owners have preserved the original grit of the venue. In fact, when you walk into a bathroom, you see that the original brothel bath-tubs are left intact. Once you move past the initial "eeeewww", it's actually a pretty cool thing to check out. I always take my sweet time there... hoping to find yet another sign pointing to the establishment's interesting past.

Come to Memphis and we'll take you there!

P.S. Apparently, The Rolling Stones wrote "Brown Sugar" after a night there but I'm guessing that would be hard to prove. Those guys have been in brothels EVERYWHERE!
