Thanks to Jenny Finny, from Not Just Another Southern Gal blog, for visiting us during Music Fest weekend at our Downtown location. Here’s a sneak peek at her review:
Huey’s serves more than just burgers. They have an enormous menu to choose from ranging from shrimp baskets, Po Boys, catfish baskets, appetizers of all kinds, grilled chicken and chicken tenders as well as their Famous Huey Burgers. The options are endless. This time, I decided to try something a little different. I went with the Shrimp Po Boy. If you’re not familiar with what a Po Boy is, it a sandwich that is served on a hoagie bun, topped with shrimp, chicken or other meat. My shrimp po boy came with round disks like shrimp that was deep fried, of course, topped with tomato, lettuce and a side cup of buffalo sauce.
We had such a great time at Church Health Center’s Walking As One on April 23rd! Thanks to everyone who came by and played in our kid’s tent! We had a frill pick shooting game, bubbles, and a graffiti wall to sign.

Referring to the Beale Street Wine Race, Alex Boggs said, “Wine race is pretty much my favorite day of the year. ‘Cause I love to win.”
For the fifth time in six years, Alex’s crew, “The Huey’s Wine Race Team,” won the event, held April 23 on Beale Street. “I was definitely worried seeing that we dropped a bottle, but, overall, this year, in my opinion, all the teams were a little bit down,” said Alex, who is an owner of Huey’s. “Nobody had a perfect run. All three teams that placed actually dropped something.”
Participants run the relay race while carrying a tray of wine bottles, glasses, corks and a corkscrew. “You’ve got to fill up all four glasses to the line of tape at the top,” Alex said. “Then you have to complete the race with all four bottles, four glasses, four corks and a corkscrew. Anything you’re missing, you get penalized. Any spillage is going to count off as well. Every millimeter (of spillage) adds a couple of seconds to your race time.”
But, Alex said, “As long as you’ve got the quickest time, the seconds that get added on for spillage don’t penalize you as much.”
“At the end of the race, all the wine that’s in the glasses and the bottles is weighed,” said Beale Street director Jon Shivers. “Teams with the quickest time and the most wine at the end of the race wins.”
Alex actually won the past consecutive six races because he was on last year’s winning team from Lafayette’s Music Room, where he worked at the time.
This year, he and his teammates celebrated at the Huey’s Downtown and Midtown locations, Alex said.

Happy Friday Memphis! Here are the five things you won’t want to miss in Memphis this weekend, plus a few extras. Don’t forget to tag your photos #ilovememphis on social media!
A “few” more other ideas:
– Jimmy Ogle’s monthly Fairgrounds tour at 2 p.m.
– Orgone at Lafayette’s
– Wendy DeWitt with Krik Harwood at Huey’s Cordova
1. You never understood a single word of what came after, “It’s time to get crunk. It’s time to represent. Tell the Bellringer what time is it…” but you always listened anyway.
2. Ironically, you went down to Florida to escape the summer heat. To Destin, most likely.
3. But if you couldn’t make it to the Gulf you had a season pass to Adventure River.
4. You’ve had at least one birthday party at East End Skating Rink.
5. Thanks to Huey’s, you can do things with a straw and a toothpick that no one outside of Memphis can do.
And finally, here are the five things you won’t want to miss this weekend, plus a few extras.
A “few” more other ideas:
– Live music at several Huey’s locations
– Some of the Sons Of Mudboy play at Huey’s Midtown at 8:30 p.m.
