Last Minute Plans: Anniversary Party at The Southern

SouthernAnniversaryParty.jpg It's Thursday, y'all - time to break out of those trapped-inside blizzard blues. What better way to do it than with free booze? Tonight, The Southern will be celebrating their first anniversary, and they are rewarding their customers. The reception was originally scheduled for last night, but the weather forced a change. But now, you can actually get to them! A free cocktail reception from 5-7 will start off the evening, and they will be pouring out a "low country boil" at 6:30 - we can't think of a better dish for cold weather. If you feel like spending some money on top of the free stuff, grab a glass of the apple pie bourbon and be thankful that you are safe and warm.

The Southern is located at 1840 W. North Avenue.
