Dating In Memphis: Top 5 Places To Go On a Date In Memphis

If you’re from Memphis then you know everyone favorite line here is “it nothing to do in Memphis”. Before last year I used to think the same thing. Going to the same hangouts, and eating at the same restaurants then getting on social media crying about how it nothing to do here or Memphis isn’t safe anymore. And of course, everyone favorite line "they shut down all the fun places in Memphis". It wasn’t until one night that I went out, and I had the time of my life at a place I never been before. The crazy part is I drove past this place several times not knowing it was a great place to hang out, and have fun (then the food was good). Since everyone here claim it nothing to do in Memphis, it leads to lack of creativity in the dating department. Well, this is where I step in and try to help. Dating is what keep the relationship alive. No matters how long you been with the person, you still have to date that person to keep that fire burning. The thing is nowhere in this universe is 100% safe, hell being in your home isn't safe anymore. Furthermore, the longer you stay closed minded the more you stay in a mental prison in your own city. However, enough about that I’m here to share the top 5 places to go on a date in Memphis. 

South Main Trolley Night-
The last Friday of each month, Memphis' South Main Arts District hosts an evening of art and music (perfect date atmosphere). Most of the shops and galleries are open-house, and if you go early enough, most of the vendors are serving complimentary drinks and a few snacks which can hold you over until dinner. So, you can get a good buzz going and see local art and live music at several locations, all for free which is the best way to kick off your date.

After Dark at the Dixon-
Every third Thursday of each month, the Dixon Gallery & Gardens keeps the gardens open until 8 pm for Art After Dark, a chance to waltz through exhibits as well as enjoy the outdoors through paved walkways in the gardens. You can enjoy light refreshments, a cash bar, and movie screenings while you two are enjoying each other company.

The Wiseacre Brewery tour- 
For a super casual, social date (the perfect place for him to meet the friends), go for a beer tasting at Wiseacre Brewing's tap room. Once the tour end you can stay for more drinks, because the taproom is bound to have a game on the screen or a lively band by the bar, plus it bound to be a food truck or two on the patio, so you can linger around a little bit longer to enjoy the amazing atmosphere. Even if the date doesn’t work out, you’ll at least have a souvenir glass to take home and you might meet someone else.

The Twilight Sky Terrace-
For the classic, classy romance date Madison Hotel’s swanky rooftop bar and lounge, Twilight Sky Terrace is the perfect date. Sip on cocktails and enjoy dinner while you watch the sun set over the Mighty Mississippi with arguably the best view of the river in Memphis. After the sun goes down, cozy up under the lounge’s fire pits for a nightcap while under the stars. 

Dinner at The Majestic Grille
If you’re a theme loving couple then this is the place for you. Pretend the two of you're a young couple from the Twenties in Downtown Memphis by spending the evening in one of Memphis historic building. Ask for a seat on the mezzanine of The Majestic Grille where you can watch silent films under string lights, and eat some of the best steaks in Memphis. This place will set the mood right for the whole evening.

When Hurt People Hurt: Nas and Kelis

You can’t fix what you didn’t break. Sometimes the demons we face, are not the person we’ve dated fault. We’ll never know the demons anyone truly face, until they decide if they want to take it out on us. We try to be there and show them something different but soon realize their demons are slowly killing us. As I come to learn a man is his mother image. A man is what his mother make him to be, he may carry out some of his father actions; but his character come from his mother. Like a woman is what her father tell her to be. Whether he speak it with his words or speak it with his actions (by not being in her life), a woman carry her father words with her everywhere she goes and in all of her relationships. That why sometimes when a man is reckless, if his mother understand his actions then no one else opinion of him even matter. Vice versa with a woman. We chose to play doctor but doesn’t stay around to fully cure that person injuries. We just add more cuts, to an already wounded soul…

My Thoughts on Love Is...

As I always say, when the love is real it not meant for anyone on the outside to understand. I always ask women “what would they do for love?” Some women answer, while some just look at me like I’m crazy. Everyone loves to claim they have a limitation on love. However, as one told me you only have limitation when you haven’t met your match. Now, before I could write this story I had to re-watch this series twice just to make sure I was understanding what I was watching. Therefore, after watching this show I got something to say and it won’t be pretty. My new addiction celebrating black love is Love Is”, which tells the origin story of a modern-day love, before social media came and destroyed well trying to destroy love for everyone. This show has become the topic of discussion more than this season of “Insecure” (I’m still waiting for that wow moment of this season). Love Is_ is set in '90s. And tells the story of two Black creatives who fall for each other quickly. Nuri works as…

What to Do When A Person Ghost You

We all knew this day was coming and now it time I write about it. This Sunday night, was the season finale of “insecure." Now, before I get to the point of the story I must share my thoughts of this whole season. I was looking for that spark this season like season one, and two, but I didn’t receive one until the end. Even the whole Daniel and Issa storyline that was a letdown. When I saw she brought back Lawrence I was hoping that finally they would work it out, but again Lawrence on that bitch ass shit. However, the relationship between Nathan and Issa was the talk on black twitter. While Issa thoughts she finally met a good guy who challenge her, Nathan proved that “the lighter the eyes, the bigger the lies.” While we have to wait until Next Year to see exactly where this relationship will go, Nathan pulled a move that was close to home for many people. It hurt like hell when a person leave you without any warning or reasons. It leave you asking yourself, “What did you do?” We…
