Walking in Memphis.
What to do with a day in Memphis, Tennessee.
I flew home from London in early December and promised myself that I would spend the next month doing nothing but catching up on work and spending as close to nothing as possible (the whole laptop thing put me behind in both money and productivity). That all went out the window though when I saw a tweet from Major League Eating announcing that the first qualifier for next year’s July Fourth hot dog eating contest would be held in Mississippi a week after I arrived back to Chicago. And, well, I really wanted to go.
And so, a week after I got home, I took off again on an overnight bus to Memphis, the closest big city to where the contest was to be held, and spent three days checking out the sites, competing in a hot dog eating contest (more on that later…), and eating as much BBQ as I could (again, more on that later).
