Springtime means good eats and drinks in Jackson. If you’ve been hiding out from freak hailstorms by eating soup at home, now is the time to put down the ladle and get out into the city—all for a good cause. Three food and drink events are blasting into Jackson in a seven-day span, benefitting three community-minded organizations: the Alzheimer’s Association, the Jackson Zoo and Fondren Renaissance Foundation’s children’s art program.
If wine isn't your thing, but beer and bears are, don't miss Zoo Brew at the Jackson Zoological Park (2918 W. Capitol St., 601-352-2580). The event is April 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. The zoo will stay open late, and keep the craft beer flowing and the music blasting from Southern Komfort Brass Band, Jesse Robinson, Jason Turner and DJ George Chuck. Wing Stop, Jaco's Tacos, Pan Asia, Underground 119 and Flap's Tamales are all providing bites for visitors. Plus, guests can enjoy a cigar lounge from Hops and Habanas.
Tickets for Zoo Brew are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, $60 VIP and $15 for designated drivers, and are available via the Facebook event and at jacksonzoo.org.
