Memphis in May BBQ Festival

The third weekend in May is always the World Championship BBQ Contest on the river. My company has a booth so it's all the free beer you can drink and all the ribs and shoulder you can eat. In other words, it fucking rocks.

Weenie posing by Jimmy Johnson's car. Yes, we are rednecks.

Here is the our tent. The name of the team is Oscar and the Grouches.


The day was perfect and the breeze off the river kept us from sweating to death.


Dyna found a seat upstairs.


The drinking has begun!


Sunset.
Double fisted!
We left the park around 10:30. I was ready since we'd been there since 3:30. We walked to Beale Street. Our friend, Susan Marshall, was playing at Itta Bena which is located above B.B. King's nightclub.

After hearing Susan play, everyone went home and we went over to Susan's house for more drinking. Her husband was waiting on us with the Grand Marnier. Jeff poured us all shots and we sat down to hear Susan's new CD that is coming out soon. The new record is stunning! I loved every song! I cannot wait for it to come out!

Jeff kept me up way too late that night. We had sent the wives to bed and were trying to solve all the world's problems. I woke up with a screaming headache that morning. Weenie took me to McDonald's for some food and then I went back to bed.

OMG! I'm so jealous. The last Memphis in May I've been to was like 10 years ago. I can't believe it's been that long. Always so much fun! Looks like it was great again this year.
