2011 M Awards: Favorite Place To Spend A Nice Afternoon

Picture this: A two-hour cruise on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi… A short stop at Gillop’s Bend where you are greeted by mermen with liquid refreshments, ribeye steaks and bedpans… After eating, drinking and excreting, you move further up the river to the soothing sounds of ukuleles playing the tune of ‘Tiptoe through the Daisies.’ Can you imagine a nicer way to spend the afternoon? Yes, me too… The Memphis Zoo. That’s the ticket. Hint, become a member and go year-round. But if I were you, I would stay away from ice skating this winter or you might break your leg like I did. (Note: it healed fine. Almost no pain anymore.)

The Memphis ZooFirst Place: 32.68%
Shelby FarmsSecond Place: 25.82%
The Bluff at AutoZone ParkThird Place: 16.01%
Best Write-in Vote: Brookhaven Pub Patio
