| Webdude had to make a trip recently to Memphis, TN. As you might have known, I did not want to miss watching the Packers play. With Packer Fans living everywhere, it did not take long to find a bar loaded with fellow Packer Backers. Not only were these guys fans, they also had an organized club just like ours and call themselves the Memphis Packer Backers. These guys were great!!! They made me feel right at home with their generosity and friendliness. They fed me at their tailgate party before the game, made sure I didn't go thirsty, and were wild and crazy like me! They hold raffles and give away great prizes and were written up in the Milwaukee Magazine as a great place to watch the Packers in Tennessee. I thought they were great.
During the game, they hoist a drink with every flag thrown against the opponent and there were allot of them that day. With every Packer touchdown, a cheese wedge is passed around to feel the power of the cheese. Also passed around is the "touchdown cherries" which are small pittted cherries that have been soaked in whiskey for 3 - 4 months by member Bob Harris. They were mighty tasty. The club meets at TJ Mulligans in East Memphis at the intersection of Quince and Kirby. If you are ever in town during football season and are looking for a Packer bar, then look no further. You'll have the time of your life with the Memphis Packer Backers!!! They also have a web site of their own now. Go check them out at The Memphis Packer Backers!
