Chapitre 3: Dart, Toothpick Throwing in Memphis, TN

After singing, “these boots were made for walking…” at the top of our lungs, it was time to say, “au revoir,” to one of my BFFs. I decided to head to the hôtel to get some shut-eye because, after all, I had a “big,” touriste day ahead of me tomorrow.

It was a warm, sunny (ok partly-cloudy) après-midi. A parfait day for a leisurely, touriste stroll in Memphis.

During my promenade, I came across a giant…pyramid. “Am I in Memphis, TN or in Memphis, Egypte?” I chuckled to myself.

I was, indeed, in Memphis, TN, and there was, towering before me, a géant, steel pyramid. The Memphis Pyramid intrigued me! Memphis is known for Elvis, it’s rich histoire de musique, The Civil Rights Musée, BBQ…and the Memphis Pyramid…wait, What? That last one got me. It turns out, in 2007, the Memphis Pyramid was used as an arena for concerts and sporting events. Today (in 2016), the Pyramid now hosts a Bass Pro Shops Megastore including: Big Cypress Lodge (an hôtel), Ducks Unlimited Waterfowling Heritage Center, Beretta Fine Gun Center, Fish Aquarium and Alligator Feeding, a laser arcade, an archery range and pistol range, Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill (and bowling alley), and the Lookout (a 28-story freestanding elevator & glass observation deck).

After admiring the pyramid, my stomach sounded the alarm: It’s time to eat! A friend (and native to Memphis) introduced me to the art of dart toothpick throwing and Memphis style burger devouring at Huey’s. It was quite the experience!

5 Raisons to Get Some Grub at Huey’s in Memphis:

  • Dart Toothpick throwing.

Once you’ve devoured that gooey, greasy, delicious burger, you can enjoy the art of throwing the toothpick, which held that scrumptious sandwich together, on the ceiling.

  • Wall graffiti. After you’ve finished throwing your toothpick on the ceiling, you can write all about how you enjoyed the dining experience on the walls! …Or you can use the wall to exprime a love confession. It’s your choix.

  • Endless amounts of Blues and Rock ‘n Roll musique. There’s nothing better than enjoying a juicy burger with your favorite oldies hits!
  • Gooey, delicious burgers! The spécialité: burgers (duh!)! There’s 11 burgers to choose from: see Huey’s menu. Of course, they offer a variety of “heart healthy” plats, too, but let’s be honnête, the burgers are the best!

  • Live musique! There’s live musique every Sunday and karaoke every Monday! See the events calendar to find out who’s playing and at which location!

Memphis has a lot to offer, after all, some claim that Memphis is the rock ‘n roll capital of the U.S., but there’s one restaurant you can’t miss: Huey’s! If you’re looking for the ultimate burger experience, then Huey’s is the way to go! ♦
