Two Days Away!

The big Barry Dixon event is THIS Thursday! Only two days away!
We are so excited to host this one-of-a-kind event alongside Arteriors for such a design celebrity as Barry Dixon!

Not only is Barry extremely talented, but he is genuinely one of the nicest people we've had the pleasure of getting to know!
We know you're going to really enjoy talking with him and hearing him share about his design adventures.

In case you haven't heard, Barry is an Ole Miss graduate, so he is calling this event a homecoming of sorts!
He loves his Mississippi friends and has had some really kind words to say about us Mississippians
(and our homes!) :)

“Perhaps the greatest quality a home might possess is that of innate, soulful hospitality,” Barry says. “The South, Mississippi in particular, literally oozes this cardinal quality, and her children take it with them wherever they go…”

Come meet Barry on Thursday night from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. over a bite to eat (prepared by James Beard Award winning Chef Derek Emerson of Walker's and Local 463!) and a Mason Dixon signature cocktail! Raphael Semmes and his trio will also be here providing some groovy tunes to set the mood for the affair!

We look forward to seeing you! Bring your friends!

The Mason Dixon: What It Is & Where To Get One

With our big Barry Dixon event only a week away, we figure it's time to start letting y'all in on some of the details!
Along with the help of our friends and neighbors at Calistoga Wine, we have come up with a signature cocktail for the event
and we're calling it The Mason Dixon.

The Mason Dixon Signature Cocktail for the May 9th Barry Dixon event at SummerHouse | Ridgeland, MS

The Mason Dixon is a spirited sipper with a mix of delicious personalities like rosemary, lemon, and cucumber...
Sounds just right for a warm southern night, doesn't it?! Come try one on May 9th at SummerHouse from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.,
and bring a little appetite with you as well! Award-winning chef Derek Emerson from Walker's and Local 463 is doing the food. Try Braised Pork Belly and Cheddar Biscuits on for size... Yeah, this event is not to be missed!
