Clarksdale on a Sunday?

I will be passing through the area in a couple of weeks and am thinking about staying a night in the Clarksdale area. It just so happens that this would be a Sunday. Is anything open on Sunday (restaurants/bars)? Does anything go on (live music, events, etc.)? Will anyone be around? If not Clarksdale, then where would the best place be to stay? I will be coming from Tupelo and heading towards Vicksburg.

Call these folks and they can tell you. They know a lot about the Delta music scene.

Ground Zero Blues Club is where you hear the real thing. Unfortunately it is closed Sunday.

If you are interested in the blues, check out the Mississippi Blues Trail. Very cool and informative. Takes you off the main road, so you get to see some of the smaller towns, and really get a sense of where this music was born.
