Things to Do

The land may be flat, but that doesn’t mean you can see everything.

Around here, it’s not hard to find a blues festival, a quirky museum, or a hot tamale that’ll blister your tongue. But dig a little deeper, ask a few nosy questions, and that’s when the real adventure begins.

That’s how you’ll meet the Patriot, a knight in chain mail awaiting his final call to battle in a quiet cemetery, or find out just where that friendly musician singing “Highway 61 Blues” got his talent. That’s how you’ll learn that a “cathead” can refer to a work of folk art or to a homemade biscuit, and realize that once you open that mojo bag, your good luck just might turn bad.
