I'm going to be there for the next three days and I'm wondering what to expect? I've never been to any southern cities. I'm sure it's a lot different than Chicago. Anything cool that I should check out while I'm there?

It depends on where in Memphis you go. It is a decent city, but I'd say be a little careful, if you wind up in the bad parts of town it's a pretty dangerous city. My car was almost hi-jacked two years ago. The guy dropped his gun and I drove off...more like sped off freaking out. You'll see a lot of prostitutes out there too. Heh, so there you go ;)

As far as sights go I can't really think of too much. The zoo isn't that bad, uhm...the arena team is pretty cool, and there's a ton of casinos.

I go there every year, but I stay in Olive Branch Mississippi, it's about 30 mins away. (If that)
