Had a great day today! Went into New York City to see "Million Dollar Quartet," a musical about that special day in 1956 when Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis jammed together at Sun Studio in Memphis.
The show was great: superb performances threaded with history. The whole audience jumped with joy at classic songs blasted with energy.
It was especially appropriate for me to wear my beloved red jacket from Lansky Bros. I bought the jacket when I visited Memphis last year. Bernie Lansky designed clothes for Elvis during his early years and this particular design (with vertical stripes) is exactly what Elvis wore before he became famous.
We also had a fabulous meal at The Delta Grill, one of my favorite places. There are over 9,000 restaurants in NYC and only one serves New Orleans food: this one. Even better, it re-creates the atmosphere of NOLA in every respect. (I know this because I went to NOLA last Mardi Gras.)
By the way, what do you think of that shirt? :)
