Feed Your Soul: Food with a Story Where the Young and Vibrant Shine A Storied Past and a Bright Future

A B OUT T HE C OVE R Jackson native, musician Adam “AJC” Collier shows a little soul at downtown’s Hal & Mal’s. The young, up-and-coming artist recently wrote and produced “My City,” a song capturing Jackson’s essence. “Even as a native of the Jackson area and a graduate of Jackson State University, I didn’t realize the scene that is the City with Soul,” says Collier. “There are countless bars, murals all over the city. It really is incredible and authentic.” Photo by Tate Nations

Authenticity. It’s perhaps our city’s greatest asset.

These encounters prove that we are truly a city with a whole lot of soul. Jackson is a melting pot that brings together an excess of positive things. Our diverse population keeps things interesting – and promising. We offer something for everyone, no matter age, background or demographic. There’s no shortage of ways to delve into our culture, and you can do this while enjoying a small-town feel. Jackson is a place where eclecticism reigns and is the perfect place to be yourself.

START THE DAY.

There’s no better way to start the day with a true taste of Jackson than at one of our local coffee shops, where you’ll certainly witness the diversity we love to celebrate–all while sipping on some of the best coffee around. For over two decades, Cups (with Fondren, Downtown and Lakeland Drive locations) has been elevating the palettes of caffeine lovers throughout the city. Here, local art adorns the walls and comfy seating beckons you to sit and stay awhile. Other local coffee lovers have since followed in the footsteps of Cups, making Jackson quite the place for

a truly great cup of joe. Sneaky Beans, located in the nucleus of the happening Fondren district, is a full-service coffee bar and a neighborhood favorite. At Sneaky Beans, you can indulge in locally-roasted BeanFruit Coffee, specialty espresso drinks, teas, frappes, smoothies and Chemex pour-over brews, all while sitting on the front porch taking in the colorful Fondren views. Insider tip: Sneaky Beans’ “for here” coffee is only $1.00. From fancy to simple, breakfast is a meal to linger over in Jackson. Stop in to The Manship for Pain Perdu (fried French toast) or duck leg and eggs, Broad Street Bakery for fresh and warm baked pastries and goods, or Brent’s Drugs for a classic Jackson diner breakfast done right.


EXPLORE.

From fashion to works of art, we celebrate the good stuff in Jackson. In this town, we revel in art and literature. Get lost in a good book, recommended by the literature lovers at Lemuria bookstore, located in Banner Hall. Here, plush green velvet couches and piles and piles of quality literature welcome you to Lemuria’s alluring atmosphere. You won’t want to leave. Swell-o-Phonic started out as a skate shop and has evolved into a Jackson favorite to nab a great pair of sneakers or a locally-themed, clever graphic tee. For the best in locally owned women’s fashion, don’t miss unique, upscale clothing at Blithe & Vine, Treehouse Boutique, Fondren’s Fashion House or 4450. Jackson’s arts scene is alive and thriving and you don’t have to go far to immerse yourself in it. Unconventional murals can be seen gracing the sides of buildings and traffic signal boxes, thanks to an ambitious roster of local artists investing in their city. Visit greaterjacksonartscouncil.com for a comprehensive map of the murals. There are many “art pockets” in Jackson, and Midtown is a neighborhood that nurtures artists. On the last Friday of each month, visit Midtown’s Final Friday to explore art studios, creative spaces and retail shops around the neighborhood. Final Fridays are free and open to the public. Downtown, pop in to Thimblepress, a letterpress studio that specializes in paper and gifts and often hosts pop up shows

with local and traveling artists (or visit owner Kristen Ley’s second retail location in Highland Village). Since 1975, Pearl River Glass Studio has been providing state-of-the-art stained glass to clients throughout the country, and they’re located right in the heart of our city. Call ahead (601.353.2497) for a studio tour or for information on PRG’s glass classes. The Art Garden at the Mississippi Museum of Art is home to a sprawling lawn chock-full of season foliage, permanent art installations, water features and outdoor dining. Grab lunch from the Palette Café, open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Here, fresh local ingredients are combined to create an artful menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees crafted by Executive Chef and Culinary Curator Nick Wallace. The Art Garden is open to the public daily during daylight hours and often is home to free community events like concert series, festivals, live music and an outdoor movie series. Visit msmuseumart.org for a schedule of events. jackson quirk

Get outside and enjoy the Mississippi landscape on the nature trails located behind the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, where you can take in the sights of the Pearl River, swamplands, bluffs and an array of wildlife and foliage. Or, bike around the city with the Jackson Bike Advocates, a grassroots group that meets at 6 p.m. on the last Friday of each month at the Rainbow Co-Op in Fondren (where you can grab a quick fresh squeezed juice from their juice bar for fueling up) before setting out on a group ride around the city.

TOAST THE TOWN.

In Jackson, you’ll stumble on places to find libations that range from upscale craft cocktails in a swanky setting to a local draft beer straight from the source at Jackson’s own Lucky Town Brewery in Midtown. Jacksonians take their potions seriously–a crisp beer, a good glass of wine or a perfectly proportioned cocktail. Mississippi was the last state to repeal prohibition, and 44 years after the fact, lifelong friends, Jacksonians and blues fans founded Cathead Distillery, located downtown. Housed in an old warehouse, the distillery combines the new and the old with upscale décor housed in a rustic, industrial setting. Stop by Thursday or Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. or Saturday from 1 to 6 p.m. for daily tours of the distillery, where they’re meticulously creating an assortment of Cathead vodka, Bristow gin and Hoodoo Chicory liquor. In Jackson, you’ll find that happy hour is often the best hour. We know how to raise a glass and do it efficiently. Many of our local hot spots and holes in the wall offer specials that make a perfect concoction easily accessible. Check in for great happy hour specials at Babalu Tacos & Tapas, Pie Lounge at Sal & Mookie’s, Saltine Oyster Bar or the Apothecary at Brent’s Drugs. Sounds like a reason to celebrate your visit to Jackson! There are lots of opportunities for ending the night in fun ways. Visit Fondren Public for a huge beer selection, bocce ball and giant Jenga. Or, if a glass of wine is more your speed, enjoy the sophisticated vibe at the wine bar at Caet.


Robert Plant performing at Thalia Mara

MAKE IT

A SOULFUL NIGHT.

If you’re seeking music, you’ve come to the right place. Blues can be found around every corner, but there’s more. Visit ardenland.net to see what local promoter and our resident music recruiter Arden Barnett is up to. Ardenland consistently brings big name acts like Robert Plant, Lyle Lovett, Band of Horses and more to Jackson as well as lesser known up-and-coming shows. Check out his shows at Duling Hall or downtown mainstay Thalia Mara. At Duling, head over to Saltine, Babalu, Walker’s Drive-In or any of the great Fondren options for dinner. Downtown, fuel up for a Thalia Mara show at the Iron Horse Grill, the Mayflower, Parlor Market or Hal & Mal’s. If you like to try your own hand at Jackson’s music scene, visit Fenian’s Pub on Fortification Street on Monday nights for karaoke and a new menu of pub food. Also on Monday nights, Hal & Mal’s offers “Blue Monday,” hosted by the Central Mississippi Blues Society. This celebration of the blues is where any and all musicians are invited to come jam. Experience Mississippi tunes at their best at Farish Street’s hopping spot for music, F. Jones Corner or down the street at Johnny T’s Bistro and Blues.

Gorgeous venue. Rich history.

I’m originally from Boston, Massachusetts, a major metropolitan hub, but I’ve found that for a small city, Jackson can offer some huge fun. When I first moved here, it took some time to find all the hidden gems and entertaining little nooks, but now I definitely know how I would spend an ideal 24 hours in Jackson. Jesse Pandolfo is a Jackson transplant and owner of the city’s premiere LGBT bar, WonderLust.

10:30 a.m. >>> Sneaky Beans for a Vanilla Iced Coffee and a copy of the Jackson Free Press or Dime Entertainment Magazine. A quick stroll next door to Swell-0-Phonic for a new pair of sneakers and a kitschy Jackson-themed t-shirt.

12:00 p.m. >>> Brunch at Saltine (Fruity Pebbles French toast!) 1:30 p.m. >>> Bring the kids for some fun at the Mississippi Children’s Museum, then let them

A City Rooted in History: W H Y JAC KS ON I S T H E H OM E FOR T H E 2 M I S S I S S I PPI MUS EUMS

THE FUTURE of our city and our

state is promising. Our future is bright, but it is shaped in large part by our past. Now, in light of Mississippi’s 200th birthday, we celebrate two new state-of-the-art museums. Opening in December 2017 and located in downtown Jackson, the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum sit alongside one another right in the heart of Jackson and offer comprehensive insights into events, people and eras that shaped who we are today.

Jackson was the natural home for these museums, given our deep, rich history. Jackson has faced and persevered through challenges in the past, and that strength shines through in the city’s triumphant spirit today. Pivotal moments in history, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, took place right here in the Capital City and are defining moments in the American story. Jackson was established as the seat of state government in 1821 because of its central location merging several transportation routes, namely the Pearl River and the Natchez Trace Parkway. Jackson quickly became the center of political, economic and social activity in Mississippi. The ordinance of secession that was passed in 1861, thus setting Mississippi on the path toward Civil War, happened in Jackson. Ironically, transportation, the same attraction that made Jackson the Capital, also made the city a target during the war. General Grant quickly decided that he had to neutralize Jackson as a Confederate base A Bright Future & A Storied History

in order to protect his rear when he eventually went after Vicksburg. The destruction was so bad that one reporter renamed Jackson, Chimneyville. Just as with the Civil War, many monumental moments in the Civil Rights Movement happened right here in Jackson. Medgar Evers, a leader in the Movement who helped the critical overturn of segregation at the University of Mississippi, was assassinated in his driveway in 1963. The home is now a museum that celebrates his life and contributions. The local downtown Greyhound Bus Station (now the permanent home of an architectural firm) has long been infamously associated with the Freedom Riders who bravely came to this area. Paired with the fact that there are many other downtown museums that tell our story—the Mississippi Museum of Art, the Smith Robertson Museum and Cultural Center, the New and Old State Capitols and the Governor’s Mansion— this area of Jackson and this timing have proved to be perfect for these up-to-theminute museums. 22 |

One Mississippi—Many Stories: THE MISSISSIP P I MUS EUM OF H I STORY

The Museum of Mississippi History takes you on a journey through the state’s entire history with the help of over 1,800 artifacts. In The First Peoples exhibit, visitors are introduced to the landscape that followed the end of the last Ice Age when Native Americans moved from a hunter-gather lifestyle to more permanent settlements and began the still rich practice of cultivating crops. Engulf yourself in a cultural crossroads where the paths of Native Americans, Europeans, and Africans crossed before learning about the area’s settlers’ path to statehood. In Cotton Kingdom, you can submerge yourself into the agricultural history that was developed on the backs of enslaved workers before diving into the history of Mississippi’s role in the Civil War. The World Remade explores one of Mississippi’s greatest challenges – reconstructing a society that wasn’t to be built on racial slavery. We see triumph as newly freed African Americans voted for the very first time and tragedy with the emergence of the Ku Klux Klan. In Promise and Peril, Mississippi welcomes the new century as an opportunity for change and we see legislation pass that protected children, supports emerging industries like seafood and logging. The museum offers a chance to get up close and personal with the aftermath of The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, the worst natural disaster in American history. Carry on along the road of history and explore Mississippi during the Great Depression, New Deal, World War II, the Civil Rights Movement, Hurricane Katrina and more. Explore the state’s deep-running roots of creativity, a thread that runs through Mississippi’s entire history. Our rich, cultural traditions are unique, fascinating and worth exploring. Visitors are encouraged to share their very own part of the story, whether it’s their impressions of their favorite artifacts or a personal story that relates to the exhibits. VISITJACKSON.COM

This Little Light of Mine: THE MISSISSIPPI CIVIL RIGHTS MUSEUM Further expounding on a large part of the city and state’s history, the Civil Rights Movement, the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum (MCRM) highlights the struggle for freedom and equality. You can learn more about those who risked their lives and those who lost their lives in the fight for freedom, which throughout the state’s history, has been at times both fragile and victorious. African-American Mississippians’ service in the armed forces during World War II is brought to the forefront, as is the questions they had about their freedoms. Having seen the world beyond the segregated South, they returned home with a whole new purpose—change. Milestones and tragedies of the Movement are revisited, like Brown v. Board of Education and the murders of Emmett Till and Medgar Evers.

At the heart of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, you’ll find the breathtaking This Little Light of Mine exhibit, showcasing the theme of the MCRM. This Little Light of Mine honors the music of the period, but also the local people like Fannie Lou Hamer whose leadership galvanized the Mississippi Movement. A stunning abstract sculpture depicting rays of light helps to highlight the music of the Movement, pays homage to its heroes, recognizes locals and visitors who came to help during trying times, and reiterates the theme of the museum—that we all have a light and that light is stronger together. The heightened activity of the Movement during the early 1960s is showcased, with everything from sit-ins, freedom rides, and sidewalk pickets throughout the state, bringing Mississippi into national view.

hear the voices of the Movement tell of the dangers and hardships encountered, along with genuine camaraderie and solidarity. Venture into the period of school desegregation, the passage of the Voting Rights Act, and black leaders taking seats in the state legislature before reflecting on the progress that has been made and the challenges that still lie ahead.

WE DON’T SHY AWAY FROM OUR COMPLICATED HISTORY, BUT RATHER TRY OUR BEST TO

learn from it.

There’s no better place to grasp our story and walk in the shoes of those who have come before us than these two museums. No state has a richer or more complex story to tell than we do—from our Native American heritage, to the Civil Rights Movement, to the legacy of our musicians and literary giants. Together, these museums showcase how history is dynamic, a work in progress, and greatly impacts our lives. Take a day to celebrate triumphs and reflect on lessons learned.

HISTORY

CULTURE

Clinton contains centuries of fascinating history. Choctaw Indians lived on the land prior to settlement and traveled the Natchez Trace - an original portion of which is located in Clinton’s Nature Center. During the Civil War, the Union army occupied Clinton while traveling to the pivotal Battle of Vicksburg. Antebellum Houses and neo-Grecian architecture are just two types of buildings you will find on the city’s historical tour. Get started at the Clinton Visitor’s Center where you can grab a cup of coffee and browse displays of artifacts, photos, and historical documents.

Visit the gallery of one of Mississippi’s most celebrated artists, watercolorist Wyatt Waters. Local musicians perform regularly on the streets of Olde Towne. The annual outdoor music festival, Red Brick Roads, features local singer-songwriters and regional bands while visitors enjoy over 30 craft beers in the festival beer garden. Musicians perform busking “Sidewalk Sessions” to provide evening strolls on Main Street with a live soundtrack. On Sunday afternoons, the Clinton Visitor’s Center hosts Olde Time Music Jam Sessions.

SHOPPING

The Elite Restaurant circa the early 1950s. The restaurant has since relocated to a standalone building.

A quick glance at the restaurant guide that starts on page 41 proves that we Jacksonians take our food seriously. Here, storytelling and a meal have long gone hand-in-hand. Many morsels have a colorful story, and tasty ones are our favorite kinds of fables. Not only do we consider our food a serious subject, but we also know the importance of sharing. So dig in as we let you in on a little secret about some of our city’s favorite storied cuisines. storied morsels

ALL GREEK TO ME While visiting Jackson, you may notice bottles of a spicy, orange-hued sauce atop tables or see “comeback” on menus. This simple yet special sauce is one that originated right here in Jackson. In the 1920s, Jackson saw a rise in Greek immigrants coming to town in search of opportunity. They often found work in the city’s diners and restaurants. Angelo “Pop” Primos was one of these dreamers and he began a longstanding family tradition with his Primos restaurants. In 1935, friends from the island of Patmos, John Gouras and George Kountouris opened downtown’s The Mayflower Café, where you can still get some of the best fresh fish and oysters around. In the 40s, brothers Peter and Jimmy Zouboukos opened the Elite Restaurant down the street from the Mayflower. The 50s brought about Crechale’s and Bill’s Greek Tavern, both still local favorites. By the middle of the century many of our restaurants were owned by someone of Greek descent (and still are). 34 |

Thanks to this lucky infusion of Greek influence, Jackson has long been home to fresh, broiled fish, Greek salads topped with salty olives, and the storied and beloved comeback sauce. Rumor has it that comeback sauce, the genius love child of remoulade and thousand island dressing, originated at the latter Mayflower Cafe, where it was simply called “house dressing,” in the 1930s. Given that comeback (named allegedly for the fact that you just can’t quit it) became a big hit, other Jackson restaurant owners began to follow suit, creating their own special versions of the sauce. It’s not truly comeback sauce without pepper, garlic and the creaminess of mayonnaise. Comeback can go with most Southern delicacies, but is perhaps most preferred poured on a salad, atop a no-fuss saltine cracker or drizzled on a crispy fried green tomato. VISITJACKSON.COM

At The Mayflower Café, still going strong, Greek influence and old Jackson charm reign supreme–just a rank below the beloved comeback sauce that graces every diner’s table. Other places to give it a drizzle are Crechale’s, Walker’s Drive-In, Hal and Mal’s and C.S.’s. Give it a try. It’ll keep you coming back for more, we’re sure of it. People near and far swear by Jackson’s iconic Greek hot spots. In fact, native daughter Eudora Welty was a Bill’s Greek Tavern devotee and it’s where she would spend her birthday each and every year. Bill Matheos takes extra care and pride in serving Gulf seafood seasoned with his own special Greek seasoning. Bring your own bottle of wine and indulge in Mississippi Greek specialties like redfish, shrimp, oysters and more. The Greek influence rears its head in another fan favorite and a Jackson can’t-miss–Keifer’s restaurant. Here, you’ll certainly fall madly in love with the feta dressing, a concoction of fresh feta cheese and creamy goodness. Slather it on your gyro and you’ll never forget it. We promise. In Jackson, there’s no shortage of Greek influence melding ever so perfectly with Southern food. This marriage of cultures has long defined the Jackson’s culinary culture and have clearly stood the test of time. Perhaps it’s because it represents the American Dream coming to fruition at the crossroads of culture. storied morsels

BOUNTY OF THE SEA It’s easy to see that we are lucky to be so close to the Gulf of Mexico and its bounty of seafood. From flaky redfish to perfectly prepared fresh oysters, you can get your fill of seafood in many of Jackson’s thriving restaurants. Seafood is a large part of Mississippi’s legacy and here in Jackson, you’ll find ample opportunities to take part. For generation after generation, fishing and shrimping have been vibrant industries for our state. Long ago, these trades attracted immigrants that now make up the fabric of our communities, including Slovenians, Cajuns and Vietnamese. The groups came together to form a seafood community and that has transcended the Gulf Coast and made its way to Jackson, Mississippi. Thanks to this treasure being right in our own backyard, Jackson chefs pride themselves on showcasing the bounty at its best. In fact, The Manship’s chef, Alex Eaton, was recently crowned the King of American Seafood in New Orleans, where he beat out ten other chefs from around the country in the 13th annual Great American Seafood Cookoff.

FOOD AND COMMUNITY Food is the yin to community’s yang. It’s the lifeblood that keeps the connection in tact. Many of our favorite fabled spots have long operated thanks to the community support and their support for their neighbors. Good food doesn’t hurt, either. The Farish Street area in downtown Jackson holds many stories like Big John’s, the founder of Big Apple Inn. Such are stories of perseverance. Farish Street’s Civil Rights history is rich and if that street could talk, we should all surely listen. This was where African Americans in a segregated Jackson went to do their business, shopping, dining, enjoying their neighbors and sense of community. In fact, the area was known in its heyday to have been just behind Harlem for booming communities for African Americans. Geno Lee, operator of Big Apple Inn, is a fourth-generation Jackson restaurateur. Lee’s great grandfather, Juan “Big John” Mora immigrated from Mexico in the 1930s and finding himself jobless, whipped out his grandmother’s tamale recipe and began selling them along

Farish Street. The area was humming and energetic and Big John made a real go of it, eventually purchasing his own storefront and naming his restaurant after The Big Apple, a popular dance at the time. Four generations later, Geno Lee still serves up those tamales, but the smoked sausage sandwich is what you’re after. Made from ground sausage and a small bun, “Big John’s Smokes” are served with slaw, mustard and hot sauce. Or, if you’re feeling brave, spring for the pig ear sandwich and let us know what you think! Through a long, storied history and constant change to the Farish Street area, The Big Apple Inn has sustained 75 years of serving Jackson some of the city’s most unique dishes. It has been a place to gather, through good times and bad. Civil Rights leader Medgar Evers had an office upstairs while he worked for the NAACP. Famed bluesman Sonny Boy Williamson lived upstairs and often fueled up on a pig ear sandwich. Fannie Lou Hamer, a leader in the Civil Rights Movement frequented the place. Now, Geno gives patrons a taste of history, of those that have come before. And it’s a good bite. storied morsels

LIZ SPRATLIN Liz Spratlin is the stylish owner and operator of Fondren boutique, Blithe & Vine. WHERE CAN YOU FIND ONE-OF-A-KIND ITEMS?

Zoubir Tabout just relocated his shop to the Fondren Village shopping center and I love it! He has gorgeous antique glassware as well as vintage Chanel sunglasses and silk scarves. Old House Depot is another favorite. Their warehouse is huge, and filled with everything from one-of-a-kind antique stained glass windows and beautiful doors to reclaimed hardware. ARE THERE ANY CAN’T-MISS SHOPPING EVENTS OR MARKETS?

Arts, Eats and Beats in the spring and Fondren Unwrapped in the fall are two of my favorite events. Every merchant in Fondren stays open late, serves refreshments, there’s live music on every corner and the streets are flooded with people taking it all in. It's such a festive way to celebrate the unique Fondren area! WHERE CAN YOU FIND A PIECE OF JACKSON TO TAKE HOME?

I'm partial to Blithe & Vine - we carry a local jewelry designer who makes this amazing hammered wire jewelry that is minimalist, sophisticated and very affordable. We all LOVE her threaded hoop earrings! WHEN IT COMES TO ACCESSORIES, WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE STORES?

I really like the selection at Erik Kegler Interiors - lots of contemporary options, which I love. Marble picture frames, acrylic benches, serving pieces of every size and shape. Major eye candy in there! This is my new go-to spot when I'm looking to freshen up a room with a few accessories or find something special for entertaining. WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER #1 TIP FOR SHOPPERS COMING TO THE JACKSON AREA?

Don't miss Fondren! There's a little bit of everything in this eclectic, close-knit neighborhood...boutiques, salons, antiques, interiors, artwork, you name it. I'm spoiled by the unique perspective and selection these locally owned businesses have to offer. I'd hold the shops of Fondren up against those in any larger city!

Kerry Thomas Singer, songwriter, and acoustic guitarist Kerry Thomas is a captivating performer with a sound thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a diverse mix of pop, R&B, and neo-soul. His debut EP, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eye of the Storm,â&#x20AC;? debuted at #1 in the Amazon Soul Category and is available on iTunes and Amazon.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE ENTERTAINMENT VENUE? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to narrow it down to one! Johnny Tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is one of my favorite. The food is amazing and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most definitely a musiciansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hangout on the weekend. I also enjoy Ish Grill and Bar, Center Stage, and Offbeat. They all offer great musical entertainment, most of which is homegrown.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST/ MUSICIAN IN THE CITY? Truthfully, I have lots of favorites! Silas, 5th Child, Seth Power, Chad Perry, Jarekus Singleton, Tiger Rogers, Larry Johnson, Akami Graham, Coke Bumaye, Skipp Coon, Los, Dexter Allen, Henry Rhodes, Stephanie Luckett...the list goes on. We have A LOT of talent in this city.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE MUSIC SCENE IN JACKSON? Here in Jackson, there are many talented singers, writers, and musicians. I often stumble upon someone new at venues and find inspiration. The artist community in Jackson if very tight-knit, and everyone is very supportive of each other.

WHAT EXPERIENCE INFLUENCED YOU TO PURSUE THIS PATH? I've always had an ear for music, but I was shy growing up. Sometime after my college days, I began to write more, picked up a guitar, and now I'm on my second official release (After the High). It feels great to express myself musically and honestly and share it with the world.
