    NYE on Beale Street

    My friends and I are trying to figure out New Year's Eve plans in Memphis. None of us are sure if we need to make reservations someplace or if Beale Street is just kind of a free for all where we can easily wander from one place to another. Anybody have any idea on that?

    The last link doesn't really say a lot about cover charges/ buying tickets in advance for bars/restaurants. Does anyone know anything about? My guess is that it might be so crowded you'll have to pick a place and stay there.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    I've figured the most fun nights might be Saturday and Sunday,
    While NYE might get a bit overcrowded.
