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 city's greatest asset faces threats, Memphis has some 'High Fidelity' moments, and the mecca of chicken and donuts has an East Memphis location.
