Last night Christopher and I were in Downtown Memphis to deliver a meal to a family who has a little boy at St Jude. Do you guys know about St Jude Children’s Research Hospital? It’s a research hospital here in Memphis that welcomes families from around the world who have children suffering from cancer and other diseases. No family pays a penny for treatment, travel, housing, or food because St Jude believes that the only thing the family should have to worry about is helping their child live. I tear up just thinking about this. Anyway, a friend of a friend knows this family so she asked if some of us could give this family a break from the cafeteria food. So often I feel so helpless when faced with the pain in this world so I was so glad to have something tangible we could do to serve this family. If you want to learn more about this little boy and his fight for life you can check out his parents’ blog here: #Pray4BabyBennett.
Since we were Downtown already we decided to call Brodie and Lyndal and grab a quick dinner with them. We ended up at the Spaghetti Warehouse (the picture from the outside is actually from a previous time we went). The inside of this place is great. They even have a trolley car inside the restaurant that you can eat inside!
This was Christopher’s lasagna. Really very tasty! I got the spaghetti which was pretty good, but it’s kind of hard to pay $10+ for spaghetti. I mean, really… it’s one of the cheapest and easiest things to make ever. I would like to say that I won’t pay that much for the spaghetti again, but to tell you the truth I’ve been here several times before and I always get the same thing, ha! Though I think next time we might get what Brodie and Lyndal got which was:
This was the feast meal! It came with the same amount of spaghetti as I got, the same amount of lasagna as Christopher got, PLUS chicken parmigiana, sausage, meatballs, and alfredo covered ravioli. And get ready for it… their check was $2 more than ours. So this is definitely what we will get next time and just split it!
Our dinner company – Brodie and Lyndal! I have to tell you guys, I have some pretty hilarious photos of these two trying to do the classic Lady & The Tramp spaghetti kiss thing. It failed. And was hilarious. But because I’m a good friend, I won’t share those photos. 😉
The Spaghetti Warehouse is kind of a hit or miss based on what you order. Yeah, it’s hard to spend that much money on a small plate of spaghetti. However, if you order the feast meal – you are getting the best bang for your buck. It’s unreal how much food that was! The quality of the food is pretty good. It’s not my favorite in Memphis, but it’s still tasty. There is free parking which is a huge bonus considering it’s downtown (this is one of Christopher’s favorite things about it, haha!). The interior is eclectic and fun. I’ve always loved this place ever since my grandparents first brought me here when I was in college (even before I lived in Memphis!). It’s definitely worth the experience and ambiance. Just be sure to bring a friend and order the feast meal to get your money’s worth. 😉
