As committed "Downtowners" here in Memphis, Alex and I are lucky to live within walking distance of excellent restaurants, legendary bars, Grizzlies basketball games, the Orpheum Theatre, and stunning views of the Mississippi River. Nonetheless, there are always opportunities to venture outside of our bubble, as the greater city has exceptional offerings.

We were invited for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner at The Kitchen at Shelby Farms, a scenic farm-to-table concept in far East Memphis with outstanding lake views and innovative plates. While we were quick to say, "absolutely!," the 30-minute drive seemed borderline taxing, especially when champagne would be involved...

...That's when Guardian Concierge came in.


Guardian is a full-service concierge and lifestyle management company that essentially exists to make our lives easier. Whether a drive to dinner, an errand pickup, or even a grocery runner (yes - Guardian concierges will actually shop FOR you!), Guardian  delivers high-quality service and people to ease the schedules of those who find our calendars too tight to juggle the extra details.

Marcus, our fantastic Guardian driver, arrived promptly at our townhome to drive us safely to the other end of town for Valentine's dinner. We reserved a car just 24 hours in advance; however, they'll do everything to ensure you have a ride, even if it's more last-minute! Unlike Uber, which causes angst about the timing and/or the driver and car scenario, Guardian is reliable and absolutely worth the price.

Alex surprised me with an anniversary dinner date at Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen last Saturday night, and Marcus delivered yet again with exceptional service. Trust me -- after the wine and pasta courses, you'll be grateful that a Guardian Concierge vehicle is awaiting you. We simply texted Marcus when we received our check, and he was right at the front door upon finishing our romantic meal.
