Eating Up Memphis

By David Scott - October 12, 2007

MEMPHIS -- The Hang Time eating tour of Memphis has continued in earnest since we last checked in and our fear of gaining 30 pounds in five days looks like it will come to fruition. Not that we're complaining...

Last night we managed to sneak into a C-USA sponsored dinner at the Rendezvous restaurant, our second trip to the local institution. Having been ribbed out from a daily dose of various area-ribs, we switched pace and went with the heaping plate of beef brisket. It did not disappoint.

Then, this afternoon for our pre-Madness meal we ventured over to Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken and indulged in the succulent, fresh, hot and oh-so-good fried chicken. We started off with an order of fried pickles, and let's just say that those babies could be the all-time greatest appetizer.

You can have the ribs that Memphis is known for, but we're going to take the chicken and pickles at Gus's as our meal of choice. If our flight wasn't so early tomorrow, we'd be doing a back-to-back appearance at Gus's.

. . . Memphis Madness starts up in a little over two hours and one of the highlights will be a USA vs. China shootout between representatives from the Tiger program and representatives from the Calipari China Coaching Contingent, which is in town for ten days of hoops and culture.

. . . Speaking of the Chinese delegation, there is also a Meet and Greet with our friends from the Far East at a Beale Street establishment prior to the start of Madness. Hang Time will provide a glimpse of that event in our first post from the FedEx Forum which should come in the 8 p.m. EST hour.

Until then, we're off to see the ducks exit the fountain.
