Memphis on Forbes list, in a good way

Updated:

Memphis' downtown has earned a spot in the Forbes list of "15 emerging Downtown's."

Forbes cites downtown's flurry of redevelopment projects over the past few decades, the Pyramid being redeveloped into a giant Bass Pro Shop, and the many bike and walkway paths thanks to a $15 million federal grant.

Remember back when Forbes magazine used to use Memphis as its favorite punching bag?  Well, they must have finally tried the barbeque.
