Memphis makes the Times!

It's always interesting to see how folks who don't live here see Memphis. The New York Times gives us all another chance in the "36 Hours" feature that will be in this Sunday's travel section. Of course, that's not enough time to do any city (especially ours) justice, but the writer includes shopping and craft beer int he Edge and Broad Avenue Arts districts and Crosstown Concourse along with the Civil Rights Museum, Sun Studio and Graceland. Maybe they'll get to the Stax Museum next time....

It's already posted online here.
