South Florida-born but Tennessee-bred (at least for the past 40 some odd years now), Robert Hicks is a southern man through and through. He's written critically acclaimed and New York Times best-selling novels that unapologetically tell the stories of the old south and in October of 2014 he introduced his own small batch, Tennessee-made and -aged, hand-bottled Tennessee bourbon whiskey, Battlefield Bourbon.
We think--nay we know--we like this guy.
Which is why we're so excited to be a part of his southern-skewed event at the end of the month. Author Robert Hicks is hosting a big southern party that will leave you feeling even prouder to be a party of the Great South. Seriously Seersucker includes cocktail hour, dinner, a toast from Hicks himself, a silent auction and dancing the night away with music from a live band. Plus, all proceeds go to support O'More College of Design.
Need another excuse to buy a ticket? We'll be there! Seersucker Candy Co. will be sampling a variety of curious confections that go curiously well with cocktails: Muzzle Loaders, Rosé Gummy Bears, and Bourbon Apricot Gummy Bears. Just in case you wanted to eat your cocktails instead of drink them.
