On May 28, 2017 a few of my friends and I decided to do brunch a little differently.
As the rest of the world we are lovers of all things brunch so, when we heard that there was a brunch tour going on in the city of Memphis we found out how to signup!
Brunch at multiple restaurants with food at all locations??
Our host for the afternoon was Co-Founder and Owner of The City Tasting Tours, Cristina McCarter. A native Memphian who couldn't think of calling any other place home and lover of all things food. Cristina was incredibly dope. She made us forget that we had just been stuck in the storm the night before!(The storm that had Memphians without power for two weeks) We were coming from our Sorority Sister's wedding(Love you Jas and Alex).We just knew we weren't making it back to Memphis but that's another story.
Cristina not only entertained us with her charismatic personality but, she also gave us all the Main Street Facts as we walked from one destination to another. We had delicious dishes, mimosas, ate sherbet with champagne, and met a few of the restaurant owners. We laughed, people watched, saw work out bae, shared our storm story, and Cristina and I even had a quick conversation about blogging. Sharing the belief that Memphis has so much more going on than we are recognized for and we have to find ways to highlight it. That was the reason for me starting this blog in the first place. To spread the positivity and information that I felt the public needed. It was a Sunday well spent!
I definitely recommend you all taking this tour AND the brunch tour isn't the only tour Cristina offers! It's actually one of the latest to start. The regular city tasting tour is also a Downtown food tour on main street. However, on this one you visit 5 restaurants instead of 3. It is still a walking tour and it runs from Wednesday- Saturday for 2.5 hours. Recently, a Downtown Cocktail Tour has been added to the list but the details for that one have yet to be posted.
This tour is a must for locals and visitors. You get to see pieces of Memphis you may have missed all while tasting delectable treats that excite your taste buds with all the flavors!
