- Now I need to get to Memphis. - [Voiceover] You got it. Give us the look, man. - [Voiceover] Welcome to Memphis. - Thank you. May God bless you bro. God bless you guys. To be honest, I had no fucking clue. I didn't know a single thing about Elvis, other than he was a dancer and girls liked him and Uncle Jesse from Full House, really loved him and looked up to him. He's now my spirit animal for Memphis. Growing up as a kid, all I wanted to do was stay up all night, I wanted to play videogames, I wanted to eat, I wanted to drink, now, I'm a full-grown adult, have a credit card and ID, and I'm just going to stay up all night. Beale Street, Memphis and Elvis, Las Vegas and my worst nightmare all had a baby. McDaniel band, that's got to be the band right now. Do any Elvis? Alright, are you from Memphis originally? - Born and raised. It's the home of the Blues. - Cheers to you man. Cheers to you, cheers to Memphis. The temperature outside is hot as fuck. Memphis as fuck. That's how hot it is, is Memphis as fuck. It's bearable in here though. Blues keeps it cool, baby. We're live on Beale Street. Damn, Beale Street is live. I kind of need to leave before I turn into a degenerate. Cheers, whoo. Why these nachos so good? This is a shit show. Here's the problem with Beale. Because I know there's other things to enjoy in this city and here I am, turning all the way up, pacing yourself. I want to finish these nachos. I want some more. You don't want your entire all-nighter to just be one drunken rager. Fuck. Let's get the fuck out of here, let's go. Look at it, it's a giant glowing pyramid in the middle of Memphis. I've never set foot in a Bass Pro Shops before, but this is, it's like a Disneyland for outdoors people. Dude, this is crazy. So much camo here. Did you see me? I've never shot one in my life. - Never shot it before? - [Man In Red Shirt] No. - [Man In Green Shirt] Okay. Yeah, man I'll show you. - Let's do it. - So, traditionally you're going use your three four hold is what it is, one on top, two on bottom. - Popping my cherry right now. - [Man In Green Shirt] There you go. It's all angle and it's all instinct. Just pull it back. There you go. - [Man In Red Shirt] Got it. - [Man In Green Shirt] Pull that trigger when you're ready. - That makes me feel like a man. Oh, Rambo. That was so much fun. This is the best fishing store I've ever been to. You guys have bowling here? This is awesome. That's where you should go in Memphis. Screw all your stupid Thrillest guides, go to a Bass Pro Shop. I'm so happy that this is genuinely, my first barbecue experience in Memphis. So, this is you and your dad's. - Yeah, Dad started it back in '53. We've been here 62 years, so you know. - [Man In Red Shirt] 62 years? - [Man With Hat] 62. - You're doing something different in the community by just being up this late. You're doing something for me for being in town this late and feeding me. Is this where the magic happens? - Yes it is. It's like your grandma's kitchen. It's old school, this skillet's a hundred years old. - [Man In Red Shirt] Is all the flavor in that skillet? - [Man In Hat] - [Man In Red Shirt] Oh. - [Man In Hat] On there now. - [Man In Red Shirt] The grease seasoning. - [Man In Hat] Got to give you the shake. - [Man In Red Shirt] Boom. - [Man In Hat] Makes them appreciative. - Famous burger, famous ribs right now. This burger's so good. Oh, yeah just keep it coming. This is the best night of my life. It's Sonic's birthday tonight. I'm at a Sonic the Hedgehog birthday party. This is what being an adult is all about. Let's do this. - [Voiceover] Get real man. Get real, get nasty. - Exactly how you play super smash. I'm on two player. You want to hop in? - Yeah, I'll hop in. - [Man In Red Shirt] That's a loss right? - Yeah. So, that's the gutter. - [Man In Red Shirt] That's the gutter. - So, you just went down the gutter. - I went down the gutter. I understand the gutter now. So you're the queen of Memphis pinball. - Well yeah, so I'm the highest ranked female player in Memphis and in the state of Tennessee. - Well, so I can play pinball on anything. I could play it on my PC. I could play it on a videogame. What keeps a pinball machine so special. - It's not really the same right? Because you're not bound by the same laws of physics, as a wood and metal machine is. - This is the last call. - It says game over. I love pinball now, fuck. Every night, when I drink, and I go out into a new town, I get a hankering for some sugar and Gibson's Donuts, popped up on my radar. Can I get a blueberry donut, and I'll take a coffee please. Don't drink too much or you got to take a poop. It's really fucking good man. There's a good glaze on the outside. You can dunk it in your coffee. Not a bad look. This is what happens, when you don't get enough sleep. Can I trouble you for a refill? - [Voiceover] Yeah. - Came into town on an RV full of Elvis impersonators and they told me that Elvis was kind of a night owl. - [Guy In Orange Shirt] Oh yeah. - They told me that he would escape from Graceland and he would racquetball was one of the things that he would love to do. - He had racquetball court over there in Graceland. - I figure if he can be up late and play some racquetball, let's do that. When it's this late at night, you kind of look at everyone around you and it's this really cool club of people that have found themselves in this very night to be up. I'm spent now, I'm so tired, but you got to keep moving to stay awake. Beale Street is empty. But the heat is still here. So this drink, just grab any slushie you can, pour out a little rum, stir it in a little bit. Heading to Graceland. It's crazy man, Elvis used to live in here and this is how he would end his all nighters. So, it's a good place for me to end mine. It looks like people leave notes on this very wall. Rest in peace, condolences, thanks. I'll be remiss if I didn't do the same. Memphis as fuck, baby.
