This blog is a resource for what’s going on in Memphis: music, food, arts, events, sports, people, culture, and anything else that makes us special. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place. This blog aims to show that through posts written from an honest, local perspective.

Lora Cris was the first Memphis Music Magnet blogger from 2009. During her tenure, she helped ignite a passion for Memphis by sharing parts of the city that are lovable. In September 2013, I came on board. I run this blog full time for Memphis.

There are no other full time I Love Memphis bloggers, editors or managers – but I do publish guest posts, take reader suggestions, partner with local organizations, and get support from my colleagues at the Memphis.

It’s important to tell people that you love them, but the real lovin’ comes from learning more about what makes them tick, supporting them despite their rough edges, and just having fun with them. I bet you can see where I’m going with this. (Hint: replace “them” with “Memphis”.)

I spend my days searching the city and talking to as many people as I can, but I need your help, too. If you have an upcoming event, submit it to the calendar. Tell me what’s going on in your neighborhood. Tell me about the things you find that are offbeat and off-the-beaten-path. Your constructive feedback is welcome and helpful.
