Since this thread has branched out to the south in general, I will point out that Steel Magnolias was a great portrayal of life in the south. A little quirky, sometimes, but that's why it is a movie......

Ouiser Boudreaux:
"You are a pig from hell!"
"I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood 40 years! "
"Oh! Well don't you expect me to come to one of your churches or one of those tent-revivals with all those Bible-beaters doin' God-only-knows-what! They'd probably make me eat a live chicken."

.........And on it goes.......

One of my very favorite movie characters, Ouiser. I love Shirley MacLaine.

Perfect timing that I stumbled across this thread, as my wife and I will be traveling through Mississippi in the last part of May-early June. If you had three days in MS, like we will, and you're coming from Atlanta, what are some must-do things and places that I have to see? I've already been to BB King Museum, Ole Miss, and Morgan Freeman's Delta Blues Cafe in Indianola. Been to William Faulkner's home too. Where else can I find this hospitality and good eating that you all have been talking about?

Thanks in advance, we are from IL but very open-minded when it comes to these things, and would relish the opportunity to get a feel for the "real" MS.

Honestly, if you're hungry, you should defnitely stop by Big John's aka the Big Apple Inn on Farish Street and get yourself some hot sausauge sandwiches. at least 20-25 of them because your passengers won't save you any if you don't eat them right away..lol..matterf of fact they won't make it the highway..you might need to buy 100 of them to be sure you have enough. they look like Krystals or White Castles..just made with hot link sausages with the skin cut away...delicious!

AND you'll get the double bonus of seeing all the brand new construction to the Farish Street Entertainment District, "the FED" as I like to call it...lol

AND 1 block over, the newly renovated King Edward Hotel looks over your shoulder while you eat...lol


[SIZE=3]Big Apple Inn[/SIZE]
509 North Farish Street, Jackson, MS
(601) 354-4549 ()




Food so good a guy did a short film on the place and it's rich history. google the film "Smokes and Ears"




Here's what the hot smoke sasuage sandwich looks like:




Here's what the hot pig ear sandwich looks like:





Ask for Geno, He's most likely right there in front of you cooking pig ears with the staff...lol

Stop lying! No way the pig ear sandwich is any kind of "staple" here in Jackson, or in the state of MS. A few people love them to death, most would turn up their nose at the thought of eating one. Other than Big John's you would be hard pressed to even find another restaurant that sells ears.

My dog loves pig ears, but no way would one ever pass my lips.
