Memphis is really becoming one of my fave quick, weekend getaways. A quick 3 hour drive and I can visit close friends and experience another budding Southern city. Last weekend, I went up Saturday morning for a Blogger Xchange event.
We held our Media Kit Workshop at The EpiCenter Memphis. Epicenter is a co-working space. They also work with local partners to expand access to resources that entrepreneurs need to start and grow a business in Memphis. The Epicenter Memphis is a 501(c)(3).
This was one of our best workshops thanks to Taylor at EpiCenter. We also had coffee freshly brewed for the group by Oklyn Coffee. Oklyn brings a cart to your event and makes lattes, mocha and other drinks fresh to order. They are on a mission to make good coffee more accessible to everyone in Memphis. I highly suggest you have Zan at your next corporate or social event.
For dinner, my friend Ashlei took me to a new Black-owned restaurant, Mahogany Memphis. It’s an upscale restaurant with Creole flare. It’s located in Chickasaw Oaks Village. It was so good! I’m gong back to Memphis is March and it’s on my list. I want to try more dishes and drinks. The staff was friendly, cocktails were great and food was amazing.
After dinner, we went to Hu Hotel. They have renovated and spiced things up. We had drinks on the roof. Though it was cold, we went out to see the view which gives a gorgeous sky high view of the riverfront. We have to go back and check out the food menu.
We ended the night at a quick stop at Sage followed by our final stop at the new Wknd Hang Suite Memphis. Sage is fusion soul and Wknd is an upscale lounge with food music. Wknd’s first location is in Nashville. Ashlei and I went to Spelman together. As you can see, she knows all of the new hot spots. Check out her business GJC Publicity.
I can’t wait for my next weekend trip. Do you have any suggestions for my next trip? I plan to go Friday through Sunday.
