  • James Polk: Living the Tiny House Life

    John Cougar Mellencamp sang about Little Pink Houses for you and me. 

    While the houses being built in an old warehouse in Prentiss are little, they aren’t pink. But they can be customized. Just ask James Polk of Tiny House Life Space. 

    With his factory an hour out of the Hub City, Polk, a Hattiesburg native and resident, first dreamed of tiny houses back  in the 1990s. The architect drew out plans and went out to manufactured home builders touting them as the way of the future and trying to get them to jump on his tiny house bandwagon. 

  • Old Fashioned

    While the origins of similar versions of this cocktail date back to the early 1800s, the moniker "Old Fashioned" is said to have begun its association with the now well-known bourbon-based beverage in 1881. Invented by a bartender at the gentlemen’s Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky, the recipe was said to have been invented in honor of Colonel James E. Pepper,  a prominent bourbon distiller. As the summer begins to slip away, we offer this updated take on the Old Fashioned.

    Look, I’m a beer geek, sure. But I’m no beer snob. I like my hoppy IPAs, my big robust stouts and my cheap easy-drinking light lagers too. But I’ll admit that I’ve always had an aversion to putting fruit in beer. I just figured if the brewer wanted the beer to taste like oranges or limes then, by God, they would have put them in there in the first place. And thus, in the fullness of time, some extra-creative types over at Terrapin Brewery in Georgia decided to do just that.
