MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

It has been another great week in Memphis, from entrepreneurs reviving Downtown to congratulating our own Dave Brown! 

Here are the top 5 reasons to smile and celebrate living in the Mid-South.

TRAVEL CHANNEL STOPS BY FOR LUNCH

The show "Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations" spent part of the week filming at Gus's, Gibson Donuts, Central Barbecue, and the Barbecue SHOP.

We all know our BBQ is top of the world. Now even more people will realize why.

GAS FOR GUNS

Memphis leaders are working to get guns off the street.

Saturday at Tiger Lane, they'll be accepting guns and paying the people turning them in $50 in Kroger or MAPCO gift cards.

EXPANSION IN GERMANTOWN

Whole Foods is officially open--and it's more than just a grocery store! 

"I think it's just unbelievable that we have these type of food shopping options," one Germantown shopper said.

The new location also has a juicing station, crepe bar, and Japanese kitchen.

FAREWELL TO DAVE BROWN

After 53-years of working in broadcasting, Dave is retiring! 

WMC Action News 5 got to be part of 38 of those great years, and we wouldn't trade a single one for anything. 

We're so proud of Dave. We hate to see him go, but are happy to announce that he's promised to remain part of the WMC Action News 5 family. He'll take on the role of Chief Meteorologist Emeritus and still help out with special reports and other events as he desires.

Also, we're giving away 100 Dave Brown bobbleheads. Click here to see how you can win one!

DOWNTOWN BEER GARDEN

Old firehouse number three will become a temporary brewery.

It's scheduled to open October 1st, and could help save the lives of current firefighters.
