Eudora Welty’s Handwritten Eggnog Recipe

When it comes to arts and entertainment, Mississippi is a land of legends. At The Mississippi Arts + Entertainment Experience (The Max) in Meridian, MS, you will find their stories told in one place. From interactive installations, a recording studio, and educational workshops, The Max has it all, including events.

MAXMixology is an opportunity to enjoy cocktails while hearing stories about Mississippi’s most creative. Recently, the Eudora Welty Cocktail Hour drew a crowd at The Max. Welty’s niece, Mary Alice White, engaged the group with stories of her aunt, and Cathead Distillery’s T. Francis created a Welty-inspired flight of cocktails.

Jerome Trahan or The Max joined Rebecca Turner on Good Things to share more.
