We arrived at our hotel around 2pm on Friday. Our hotel was actually pretty far from downtown, about 20 miles. Also, there is some major construction on 40, which was a problem a few times on the trip. The hotel was nice and again had an indoor pool and hot tub. It was near a mall and there was a lot of shopping, resturants, etc in the area. Friday night we headed over to the Beale Street Music Festival. We saw Egypt Central, Puddle of Mudd, Buckcherry, Train, Jason Mraz and a little of BB King. All of the bands were good. My favorites were Train and Buckcherry. Train did a really great cover of a Led Zeppelin and Buckcherry was just crazy. The food at the festival isn't the greatest and there is a pretty limited selection of alcohol, only Budweiser and frozen Hurricanes. The only bathrooms are port-a-pottys which were kind of muddy and gross. There really isn't a lot of places to sit down because most of the grounds are muddy and you can't bring chairs, only blankets. My overall impression of the festival is that there are some great bands that perform, but some of logistical elements of the festival could be better to make it more enjoyable and comfortable for everyone. After spending several hours at the festival for three days, some better amenities would be much appreciated. I would go again and just try to prepare better.
