Road trip! Anders and I leave tomorrow for a little Mississippi Delta road trip, and we are so excited. We have a list of restaurants to check out as well as Graceland (I mean, 50 million fans can't be wrong). Our itinerary starts in Nashville then on to Memphis then to Clarksdale (we are staying at this crazy hotel) then to Vicksburg then to Gulf Shores, AL (by way of Hattiesburg) for the Shrimp Festival and finally finishing up in New Orleans. We have quite a few recommendations from people, but please, send more if you know them! Some of the places on our list include:
The Loveless Cafe, just outside of Nashville
Rendezvous for BBQ in Memphis
Hazel's Nook for breakfast in Gulf Shores
Liuzza's by the Track for Po Boys in New Orleans
Pat O'Brians for the original hurricane drink (also in New Orleans)
And so many more! Seriously, my list is huge. Full report coming soon.
