Just about a year ago, we were in Memphis. We visited Graceland, walked storied Beale St. and took a tip from a producer at Sun Studio and grabbed lunch at Elvis’ favourite diner.
The Arcade is an official historic site and the location for several iconic movie scenes, including Great Balls of Fire. Jerry Lee Lewis would have eaten at the Arcade many times back in the day when he was a contract player, along with Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash, at Sun. Elvis dropped by and – captured by a photographer – they were dubbed The Million Dollar Quartet.
I’d like to spend more time in Memphis, even just to enjoy another order of ‘slaw on the side at the Arcade.
