Just to give all you out of town folks plenty of time to book your flights . . .
There’s a party going on this Friday in Fairhope you will want to make plans to attend.
A certain TV show from several years ago, featured the main character holding her book launching party at a swanky New York hot-spot. Chic, pouty faced, skinny people, covered in skimpy sequined dresses all milled about the sterile room, giving two-cheeked kisses while holding bubbly champagne.
Well . . . I’ve been honored to be chosen as the featured writer at a big event this Friday in Fairhope, and I can promise you two things: 1. The party will be NOTHING like the TV show. 2. It will be a LOT more fun!
The event will be held at Greer’s Fairhope Market and will be broadcast live by my friends at WABF Radio 1220AM who will also be spinning the tunes that keep everyone dancing through the produce section, down the aisle of cajun spices, and into the gourmet deli. Samples of their delicious food items as well as beer and wine will be on hand, and believeÂ me, no writer in New York City ever had such a sweet soirÃ©e!
(Clean-up, aisle 4 . . . attention customers, this is a family store – no twerking in the frozen foods – yes, you Mrs. Beauregard, we see you. Them taters have eyes!)
Greer’s loves to support the arts by featuring local writers each month before the Â downtown Art Walk begins at 6pm on the first Friday of each month. And even though I don’t really have a book (yet – ?!?!?) I’ll be there to meet and greet the loyal followers of my Gulf Coast Newspaper column, “Southern with a Gulf Coast accent” and of course, you – the wonderful readers of this blog!
Greer’s has so many unique items in their small market you won’t be able to find anywhere else. I’ve used their catering service before with raves coming from my guests. Their deli has a long line at lunchtime, and I’ve actually sent my husband out in the rain to fetch a container of their spicy pecan pimento cheese. He was either really sweet, or really guilty about something – I can’t remember which one, but he got it for me! What a guy!
So, mark your calendars and grab your friends, we’re going to have a great time at Greer’s Fairhope Market this Friday night! Since it’s in the middle of Mardi Gras celebrations, it’s sure to be a fun time like no big city has ever seen!
Can’t wait to see all of you there!
WABF broadcasting live from Greer’s – 4-6pm Friday, February 6th.
