(We chose bust.)
After a tough drive from Chicago to Memphis, we decided to not push ourselves and head the whole way to Austin the next day, per our original plan. After watching the Peabody ducks and housing some delicious Memphis BBQ for lunch, we hopped in the car and went, “nah.”
We figured out that Shreveport, Louisiana was a pretty good approximate midpoint, and then figured out that we could get a cheap room at JIMMY BUFFETT’S MARGARITAVILLE RESORT AND CASINO in Shreveport.
We did, and it was awesome. Full stop, zero irony. We had such a fun night. And, we ended the evening up at the blackjack tables, so… thanks, Sir Buffett. We’ll be back.
(Seriously, we had such a good time there that we’ve decided to make this an annual pilgrimage. You should all go.)
