Start every day you're here with breakfast/brunch/lunch at Payne's.

damn -- I do that all the time, and I LIVE here.
can ya'll come up with something more challenging?

I am thinking a barbecue trifecta, like breakfast at Payne's, lunch at Cozy's, and then dinner at A&R, the BBQ Shop, or the Rendezvous.

do that every day five days in a row, and then we'll talk!

Breakfast at Bryant's every day. Sausage-cheese omelette every day. With a side of sausage every day. I dare you.

not really a challenge, but a good idea i think!
Posted: Aug 31, 2007 11:28 pm
 
I was planning on doing this anyway sooo, yeah sign me up!

It's more of a challenge for my new toilet. To see if it can handle the steady load.

Creative loafing indeed.

it was my intent to begin every day at payne's anyway, so this ain't shit! do they open for brekky?

if breakfast is at 11 am, you're gold.
Posted: Sep 1, 2007 4:52 am
 
gus' lacks even the hint of latitude... you can go white meat or dark meat.

the sides, uh, no.

paynes: chopped or sliced? ribs? smoked sausage? bologna?

and the beans are good!

twill be tough to do gus' every day. paynes is do-able.

I hear even the hot dogs at payne's are doable. or maybe I heard they're disgusting... who knows. who cares!

gus's is good and all but I can get good fried chicken here if I want it. payne's is transcendent and impossible to duplicate.

If you find yourself a bit blocked up ,try the African place on Millbranch-Kaloum's-.The food is good but a couple of hours later ,your lower GI will be like a wind tunnel.

In an effort to queer up the meat thread, can anyone suggest vegetarian soul-food/bbq in Memphis?
Posted: Sep 1, 2007 9:55 pm
 
that's queer, alright.

RP Tracks over by U of M has good BBQ tofu. The BBQ tofu burrito is pretty good.

BBQ Shop on Madison has pretty decent BBQ and features a meatless BBQ Spaghetti.

Breakfast at Bryant's every day. Sausage-cheese omelette every day. With a side of sausage every day. I dare you.

i have done "breakfast at bryant's every day." well, sort of. when i knew i had 3 days left in memphis, i had breakfast at bryants for those 3 days.
sausage is excellent as is all pork but at bryants:
CINNAMON BUN w/ FROSTING!!!

just saw a pretty impressive looking bbq portobello mushroom burger from central bbq around the corner from us. can't vouch for the flavor but appears to be a good new option for the vegetarians...
Posted: Sep 2, 2007 4:24 am
 
Oh yeah, and I LOVE THE MEAT CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

central bbq

I've heard that sandwich is okay but I don't particularly like their meat. It's usually too wet and clammy.

This, coming from a man who regularly stuffs small fish into a duct-tape codpiece.

Here are some places to get vegetarian within a few miles of the activities. Some you'll have to ask other locals the names on.

Ethiopian restaurant on Poplar around Union Extended - I think it's called Abassian.

Middle Eastern restaurant on Cleveland - great falafal. Love this place

Saigon Le on Cleveland - Vietnamese - or any of the other Asian restaraunts in that area.

Indian - India Palace on Poplar and Golden India on Madison.

Pizza Cafe- Madison

Sekisui - (sushi -plenty of veg options) Belvedere

Finos - Madison - Italian Subs

Boscoes (Madison) and Huey's (Madison) both have veg sandwiches and fries - bar food.

Kwick Check - Madison - sandwiches -



Walking distance from Goner:

Square Foods - around the corner from Goner on Cooper and Young.

Jasmine - Thai - Cooper.

Petra - middle eastern next door to goner - a little bit more pricey than the other

Pizza Joint next to Goner - new don't know name

Youn Ave Deli - Bar food w/ plenty of veg options


Carry on...

Awesome! Thanks for the list!

i'm going to be eating at my pop's place most of the week. come try the BBQ nachos.

Eric/Zac, is there any way to get Paynes to cater the Fest this year?? Or just drop off a bucket or two of meat, perhaps?
Posted: Sep 4, 2007 9:10 pm
 
That's a great list, lemissa.
"Abyssinia" is the Ethiopian restaurant.

Also, I believe that "Casablanca" is the middle eastern joint next to Goner, and that "Petra" is in the old gas station on Madison...just east of the Lamplighter.

Yes yes and yes.
Abyssinia is OK for me, the wife loves it. Especially the lentils.
Posted: Sep 4, 2007 9:24 pm
 
Abyssinia is good...but you feel like a cretin when you ask for a fork.
Posted: Sep 4, 2007 9:41 pm
 
HEE-HAW!!!

They'd have to relocate the Fest to the Millington Naval Base in order to supply the demands of you meat-hungry fags.
