Bummer! The peabody ducks are in Memphis and I'm going to Nashville! These ducks march into the Peabody hotel on a red carpet every day at 11:00 to spend the day in the beautiful fountain and then march back out at 5:00. The tradition started as a joke back in the 1930's and caught on. The ducks had the same trainer/warden from the 1940's till he retired in the 1990's. My favorite Duck fact is this:
Duck is not served anywhere at The Peabody, and has not been seen on the hotel's menus since its 1981 reopening, quite possibly making Chez Philippe the only French restaurant in the world that does not serve duck.
