In this issue of Memphis Current we highlight the musical prowess of Talibah Safiya. We discuss the history of Mississippi River flooding. We admire the grandeur of the Luciann, Plaza and Rosemary theaters. We sit down with butcher Brad McCarley to talk shop. We hear about the day-to-day operations of Old Dominick’s master distiller Alex Castle, the first woman to hold that title in the state of Tennessee. We showcase several of they city’s up-and-coming artists, including Lawrence Matthews III, Robert Anthony Sims, Mia Sane, Reid Mitchell and more. We get inside the brain of one of Memphis’ most notable craft bartenders, David Hacking of Hog & Hominy. We join Outdoors Inc. founder Joe Royer for a cycling trip across the Mississippi. We hope you enjoy our third issue of Memphis Current as much as we enjoyed creating it.
