This year for Owen’s birthday, he voted to have an experience rather than a party! He has been asking to go to a Memphis Grizzlies basketball game and his dream came true! Seth, Owen and his buddy, Judson headed to the Bluff City for a day full of barbecue and basketball!
Their first stop was Memphis’ oldest cafe, Arcade Restaurant! Arcade, which was known to be one of Elvis’ favorite spots! I loved stopping by on my trip to Memphis last fall.
They stayed stayed at the historic Central Station! Central Station has been a pillar in downtown Memphis for more than 100 years! Once referred to as Grand Central Station opened in 1914. Today, Central Station Hotel welcomes guests to experience the city as a true Memphian including daily curated playlists. The hotel was full of art and interesting musical decor.
The hotel was within walking distance to restaurants, shops and FedEx Forum. After exploring for the afternoon and Rendevious bbq, they strolled over to see the Grizzlies take on the Milwaukee Bucs. After a big win, they cozied in for the night!
It was such a fun boy’s trip to Memphis! And a birthday that I’m sure Owen will also remember!
