1City Tasting Box

Edible Memphis describes this subscription box as a little box with big impact. “City Tasting Box is more than just a box of tasty treats. It’s a snapshot of Memphis food that allows purchasers to taste the grit-and-grind culture of the Bluff City,” Erica Horton, the writer who profiled the business, wrote. “Filled with everything from cookies and popcorn to spices and sauces, the box teases a local experience.” Getting a box is getting a specially curated set of locally made snacks. It’s the perfect way of supporting Black businesses in the city while keeping your cravings filled.

2The Bartender Guide

Vibe and craft were Edible Memphis’ criteria when they curated a list of their bartender guide this year. Number one on the list is Tyronica “Ty” Maben of Sage. Patricia Lockhart, the list’s curator, recommends you try her signature cocktail named “The Beginner.” “Tyronica “Ty” Maben is energetic and positive and has a smile that lights up a room. She has been bartending for nine years—and her love for her career shows,” Lockhart describes the mixologist.

3Perfect Girls’ Night Out Spots

Getting the perfect vibe is crucial for any girls’ night. Are we thinking casual conversations or a full-on disco party? Camille Patrice Fulton, your local nightlife guide, has every vibe on her list. “I love to hop around from place to place—a queen can never sit still for too long,” Fulton writes. “I’ve found new-to-me places that guarantee that great experience—and I want to share them with you.”
