  • Prologue: December

    It has become somewhat of a Christmas tradition here at Signature Magazine. For the last several years, we have reserved space in the December issue to re-publish the 1897 letter penned by veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church, editor of the New York Sun, to eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon in which he answered her question: “Is there a Santa Claus?”

  • Signature Recipe Roundup: Thanksgiving Edition

    Thanksgiving and this season of gratitude evokes memories of the family gathered around the dining room table laden with holiday favorites, children dressed as pilgrims and Native Americans or volunteers reaching out across the community to help others. For the past five years, Signature has featured the Thanksgiving traditions, complete with recipes of local families and organizations. This year we’ve pulled all that together for a neat recipe book that our readers also contributed to.


    Hattiesburg Civic Light Opera will present Broadway’s smash hit musical, Mamma Mia!, Nov. 15-18 at Downtown’s Historic Saenger Theater. The show features 22 songs by beloved international pop act ABBA, including the title track, “Dancing Queen,” “SOS” and “The Winner Takes It All.” 



    The Hub City Maker’s Market takes place the first Saturday of each month and is a great place to get one-of-a-kind holiday gifts and keepsakes. The market’s goal is to give local artists a chance to sell their wares and educate the public about arts and skills, such as leather working, forging metal, crochet/knitting, wood working, sewing, glass work, pottery/ceramics and more.

  • Craft Cocktail: The Rock

    What has a sweet Eagle base with equal parts black and gold and a splash of bitter? Not the Nasty Bunch – it’s Jack Wolfe’s latest Southern Miss-themed concoction. Eagle Rare Bourbon (every bottle of which is aged no less than a decade) meets its match with the housemade Black Bean vanilla and Golden Twist (we hear the twist is citrus) honey syrups. Finished with a few dashes of bitters and basil for aromatics (and an ice cube as big as its namesake), this cocktail is the perfect addition to your game-day roster.
