Weekends Away: Post 2 (Part 2)

After checking in at the Peabody, our first activity was a group dinner at a Memphis Staple Restaurant which happens to be one of my favorite places to eat at across the Mississippi River.....The Famous Rendezvous!!!
First off, girls, always pack a plan B outfit for the night just in case the super cute fun dress that you were planning to wear might have a broken zipper thanks to being super smart and dry cleaning it before you left for the weekend. I was thankful I threw in a extra dress in the mix of packing for the weekend because outfit plan B made an appearance!
Pictures from the night!!
Waiting for our Pork and Ribs! (Have no fear, I got a whole rack of ribs. Sadly, three were left on my plate. So disappointed in myself. LOL)

  1. I live here in Memphis and ya'll went to some of the best places! Rendezvous is the BEST and Rum Boogie is one of my fav's for good 'ol live music! Looks like ya'll had a great time!! Luke's dad was my piano teacher when I was younger. I can't believe he is all grown up now!
