Mint in Madison, Mississippi

We kicked off the first day of our affectionately nicknamed "tour of eating" with Mint - a new restaurant to the area known for a unique and creative take on traditional Southern food.  The interior is modeled after a historic New Orleans brothel, and we thought the red chandelier was the piece de la resistance. The menu was incredible, including a fantastic beef tenderloin carpaccio, mint julep chicken and waffles, and white truffle mac and cheese, just to name a few.

South of the Mason-Dixon - Jackson, Mississippi

Pearls grew up in Mississippi, and we've got some great friends down there, so this April we took a trip down South for some good food, nice weather, and some time spent with friends.

Whiskey hasn't spent much time in the South, so it was our mission to help him experience some of the best things Mississippi has to offer, including incredible food, gorgeous homes and beautiful scenery.

Our vacation included:
a trip to the Jackson Country Club
a driving tour of Jackson's beautiful neighborhoods
dining at an array of local restaurants
a day/night trip to Oxford, Mississippi
