Among the thousands of people on Beale Street Saturday night after 11 p.m. were three Memphis City Council members and six Beale Street Task Force members.

Some observations from three consecutive Saturday nights on Beale Street at and after 10 p.m.

King Boulevard and Second Street, the stream of bubbles begins to slow.
