Chris Herrington covers the Memphis Grizzlies and writes about Memphis culture, food, and civic life. He lives in the Vollintine-Evergreen neighborhood of Midtown with his wife, two kids, and two dogs.

The scene at the center of Tom Lee Park this first week has felt like different types of Memphians — different ages and races, but even more so people from different neighborhoods and economic status — sharing free, open space, in a way that’s too rare.
