Cheap beachfront vacation, good fishing, good food and gambling for those who indulge.

One of the best restaurants (Chappy's) used to be in (I think) Gulfport or Biloxy until it was wipe off the map by Katrina.

He never rebuilt, moved his restaurant to Memphis (I think).

Being the huge blues fan I am, well Delta blues for the most part.

I will fly into Memphis and spend some time there.

Rent a car and travel the blues highway, will for sure stop in Clarksdale.

And visit a few grave sites, retrace the steps of Charley Patton and all that ****.

Anything to watch out for?

Have you ever heard of the Blues fest they have in Arkansas (of all places) in October? I hear it's f-ing awesome. Haven't made it yet, but plan to go before I croak!

I was stationed at NAS Millington outside of memphis in 1995 when I was in the Marines. We went to Beale St every weekend when we had liberty. What a cool place. Full of all kinds of characters, cool bars, great music and great food.

We would go to a club called 616, we had a system to be able to drink underage with their wristband system. Not Blues in there back then, but we saw 9 inch nails...good times and a few loose women.

Nope, but I plan on going this fall. It always interferes with football season though!

Don't smoke any of those "wrinkly cigarettes" being passed around if you attend. I hear they might be bad for your complexion.

It's on the west bank of the River. It's practically Mississippi, and a big part of the delta blues, the real blues. I wish -slap- was still around to post in this thread.

Are you familiar with Junior's site?

http://www.deltablues.net/

It hasn't been updated in awhile but there's still quite a bit of useful info there.

I made the same trip you're about to take in 1997 (Memphis, down US 61 and eventually to NOLA) It's pretty cool. Also, be advised that Junior Kimbrough's place is long gone(burned down years ago).
