Stay at the Peabody downtown. Pretty much the only place to be this time of the year. If you can hold off longer, best month to go to Memphis is may. Tons of activity and people every weekend.

Stay as close to Beale Street as possible. It's more fun than Bourbon Street with live music on on the street. I know there's a Westin there, and I think I saw a Hilton. You have to do Graceland, Sun Studios, BBQ, and the Zoo (seriously, it's cool, and they have Pandas). Honestly, Memphis is the best 3-day weekend city in the country.

Unfortunately the Peabody is sold out already for the weekend that works for our group

Umm. I love Memphis. But do NOT stay at a Hilton. Stay at either the Weston or The Madison. Anywhere in Overton Park is awesome. McEwen's has great food. Gus' Fried Chicken is amazing. Ernestine and Hazel's late night.

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
