Sorry if this should be a fanshot instead of fanpost...or if you're just plain annoyed by the nature of my post, but....
I am driving to Memphis with my girlfriend and we are going to see the Celtics vs. Grizzlies game on Saturday November 13. I was wondering if anybody knew of any decent, affordable hotels to stay at in the general area of the FedEx Forum? We went to a game a few years ago, but the hotel we stayed in was complete garbage.....I guess that's what $45 a night for a hotel will get you. Anyway, if anybody from the Memphis area had any suggestions or advice for me, I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, I guess Beale Street is probably the place to go for drinks after/before the game? Any bars or restaurants you could recommend? I'm not necessarily looking for anything touristy, just a good time.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help me out!
