Warehouse Row will continue its Crafted by Southern Hands event series with a tailgate celebration highlighting high school football rivalries, Baylor and McCallie. The weekend festivities will begin Thursday, Oct. 2, from 5-8 p.m. with live music, food and drink from Jim ‘N Nick’s B-B-Q and Chattanooga Whiskey, a trunk show featuring Southern Proper apparel hosted by Onward Reserve Chattanooga, as well as games for youth and adults in the Motor Court at Warehouse Row.

“The legendary high school football rivalry is one of the oldest in the nation and celebrating the weekend of the big game has become a much-loved Chattanoogan tradition,” said George Krauth, vice president and creative director of Jamestown, the company that owns Warehouse Row. “We are looking forward to kicking off the weekend with a high-spirited tailgate party highlighting some of our favorite ‘homegrown’ products, crafted exclusively by companies based in the Southeast.” 

There will be a pig roast from Jim ‘N Nick’s B-B-Q. The smoky pork will be roasted over an open fire using the “low and slow” cooking technique which has turned Jim ‘N Nick’s into a Southern Institution with 33 restaurants in seven states. Guests will have the chance to enjoy their barbecue with signature cocktails made with Chattanooga Whiskey.  

The Crafted by Southern Hands event will also feature live music, providing a backdrop for both youth and adults who want to enjoy outdoor games on the Warehouse Row lawn. Atlanta born and bred men’s clothier Southern Proper will be tailgating from the back of a 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, displaying a selection of their line in a trunk show hosted by Onward Reserve Chattanooga, a pop-up shop that opened in Warehouse Row earlier this month.

There are children in our communities who haven’t been to school for six long days and the brutal temperatures drove the little darlings to inside where they most predictably stirred up all manner of mayhem. Back when I was in Elementary ... (click for more)
