Martin and Kara wanted to go see the Lumineers and it just happened to be on Jackie's birthday so we joined them to celebrate.  I love the Mud Island Amphitheater.  We have seen Sheryl Crow there many times as well as Harry Connick Jr and Jimmy Buffet.  The amphitheater is over 20 years old and is in great shape.  It was packed for the Lumineers (it seats about 5,000).

We decided to go to Movie and Pizza Company in Harbor Town.  Jackie is the parking guru and decided this would be a close place so we could park under the I-40 bridge and walk over the amphitheater.  And he was right for $5, it was perfect.

Movie and Pizza Company opened in 1997 by a Memphian...here's the history I found from the Memphis Daily News: Ray Fiore, who co-owns Video Movies and More, Midtown Video and Movie Star, has been thinking about a concept of delivering pizzas and videos for the past four years. He said after discussing the possibility of working with the owner of Camyís Pizza on a delivery business, he decided the logistics were not right without having the two businesses combined as one. Thatís when he started planning the Movie and Pizza Co., a sit-down pizza cafÈ which will show movies on a big screen, rent movies and, in the near future, deliver the two products to residents in Harbor Town and Downtown. ìWe just donít have anything like that here,î Fiore said. Fiore said the pizza will be thin crust and will be more on the healthy side than most pizza delivery businesses in Memphis.


The place was empty when we arrived at 6:30 and we got prime parking, right out front which was exciting since the place was packed at 6:45.  Jackie and I split a pizza, half veggie and half pepperoni.  We had to wait a while on it but it was worth it.  The crust was medium, meaning not thick, not thin, but just right.  Kara and I split the salad special with a choice of greens, cheese, fruit and dressing.  It was fantastic.

No dessert people, we were off to Mud Island which I adore.  Have I mentioned that already?  Anyway, if you're in Harbor Town, don't forget about Movie Pizza Company.  It's delicious, the waiters are courteous and the ladies room was in perfect shape.  You knew I'd check didn't you?

Happy 43rd Jackie!

Not a super great photo but here
 it is, we loved sitting outside!
What's funny about the Lumineers is they only have 5 songs
so it was over fast.  They had 2 bands open for them that
also have about 5 songs.  It was a good, short concert in
my favorite venue, Mud Island Amphitheater!
