Kat Robinson of Tie Dye Travels and photographer Grav Weldon are in Memphis today for the opening of a Bass Pro Shops megatore and hotel in the former Pyramid arena in downtown Memphis. It's said to be a $100 million project, with Bass Pro leasing the Pyramid from the city for 55 years at 2 percent of gross sales a year up to $1 million a year.

News coverage here.

Kat is posting lots of photos on her Twitter account.

I wonder: Does a new, bigger Bass Pro 140 miles away have any impact on traffic at Litttle Rock's newish and smaller Bass Pro?
