2019 Alabama v Southern Miss Tailgate

Welcome back to Tuscaloosa Tide fans. This week we welcomethe Golden Eagles of Southern Miss.  Looking back at the archives, I see we lasthosted the Golden Eagles in 2014.  Likethat year, cooler weather is in the forecast (it’s sad when the lower 90’s iscooler).  Unlike 2014 we have an early kickfor this one (11AM).  No worries, it’s perfectice cold beer weather.  So stop by andenjoy one of the many Cahaba Brewingbeers we will have on hand.  Speaking of,a HUGE thanks to the entire CahabaBrewing crew for the partnership #JumpIn.

Last tailgate I featured Golden Eagle Syrup to give a nodto the Golden Eagles and tie the menu back to Alabama.  This week I plan on doing the same.  When I think of Hattiesburg, the firstthought that comes to mind is Camp Shelby. I spent a week there one weekend back in college.  At any rate a treat of that weekend was MajGibbard taking the crew to an all you can eat buffet called The Lumberjack (can’trecall the name for sure).  It was a never-endingbuffet of traditional southern food and I seem to remember it including squirrel.

Don’t fear, there’s no squirrel on the menu this week.  In addition to the above memory, Hattiesburgalso always reminds me of heading to New Orleans.  So with an early kickoff I thought I’d do abrunch menu that gives a nod to traditional southern food as well as New Orleansclassic.  Grillades and Grits are a traditionalCreole brunch item and one of my favorite dishes.  It’s hard to get anymore southern than biscuitstopped with butter and Golden EagleSyrup.

Here’s what I am thinking

  • Crimson Sunrise Mimosas
  • Ice ColdCahaba Brewing Beers
  • Southern Biscuits with butter and Golden Eagle Syrup
  • Biscuits topped with Grillades (a play on thetraditional dish and a nod to biscuits and gravy)

I’ll be setting up early and am shooting to have food offaround 9:15 or so.  Come on by and sayhello.
