Ben Nichols ringing endorsement from Luceros 2003 single Tears Dont Matter Much says all you need to know about 41-year-old Southaven native Cory Bran-an. From his 2002 debut, The Hell You Say, to his joint efforts alongside big names like Jason Isbell and the Thrift Store Cowboys, this Southern storyteller fuses wailing chords of punk rock with soulful old-country structure. This month, Branan returns to his North Mississippi roots to perform at Oxfords Double Decker Arts Festival.Click Magazine: What was life like growing up in Southaven? Cory Branan: My old man was from Arkabutla, he worked on the jets at FedEx. It was just like any old small town when I was growing up. I remember how we used to fly model airplanes where all the fast food and hospitals have popped up now. Stateline Road was pretty much all there was at the time. CM: How did you get started playing music?CB: I grew up alongside it in church my whole life and my family played a lot. My father was a drummer, grandfather a fiddle player there were lots of instruments around. I didnt start on guitar till I was around 12 or 13 years old. At the time, I just played for whoever needed a guitar player for fun. I didnt really start writing music and playing in coffee shops till I was in my twenties. CM: Your songwriting skills earned shout-outs from local legends like Lucero, Steve Selvidge and Jason Isbell. What is your songwriting process like? up front people Click magazine | APRIL 2016 15 CB: Well, now that I have kids, any sort of structure has gone out the window. I tend to just go at it, you know? I dont really like to write a lot when Im on the road, so a lot of times Ill be pretty amped to go when I get back. Ive never been much of a pressure writer. Im not quite like Ben [Nichols] from Lucero. That guy will just lock himself in a room for days before the record and write a bunch. I dont write well under pressure or maybe I do, but Ive never pushed myself to. CM: Is there anyone youd like to collaborate with from the Mid-South but havent had a chance to yet? CB: Ive actually talked to Paul Taylor about working on this newest record. The guys a genius, and I dont know too many geniuses. Ill be recording in April at Tweed just outside of Oxford with Andrew Ratcliffe. CM: Have you ever attended Oxfords Double Decker Arts fest? What can we expect from your performance? CB: I played it several years ago, the same year as Wilco. Who knows what to expect, I never make a plan, just wing it. It will be solo. Ive been playing a lot of electric lately and I havent decided if well go electric, acoustic, or both. CM: Your music has drawn comparisons from old-school indie punk to Ryan Adams ballads. How would you per-sonally describe your style? CB: I dont. I honestly dont describe it. I like to give myself the freedom to do whatever I want at any given moment. Ive pulled from a lot of American roots forms in the past and I love the blues, country and a lot of traditional folk writers like John Pine. Im also a huge fan of Tom Waits, and what kind of music does Tom Waits play? Whatever he wants.Cory Branan will appear at this years Double Decker Arts Festival in Oxford on April 22 and at the Lucero Block Party in Memphis on April 23.7420 Guthrie Dr. N. Ste. 101 Southaven.

Do you have a favorite word?A: I would say click, except its so trendy. So, no, I dont have a favor-ite word. Ill tell you my least favorite word: the word favorite. Anyone who claims to have a favorite food, or animal, or song, or thing to write about, is just taking an excuse to babble.Q: In 2002, you narrated a PBS docu-mentary about the Mississippi River. Can you share a little about the pro-cess? Did you learn anything surprising?A: I tried to learn something while dealing with the fact that I was being dragged hither and yon by a film crew. I did learn, by asking all sorts of people what being mainstream meant to them, that most of them never had thought about it before and werent go-ing to think about it.Q: Some of the events you docu-mented, such as the King Biscuit Blues Festival, barbecue contests and barehanded catfishing, are old hat to peo-ple in the region but may seem strange to outsiders. How do you approach these uniquely Southern topics?A: I approach all topics from my own level of curiosity. To me every-thing, especially a commonplace thing, is strange and yet, I trust, comprehensible.Q: What is your writing process like?A: I mopearound, comeupstairs to stand at my big-screen-monitor computer, curse, wander around, sigh, talk to the cat, write, rewrite, and its never quite right, but it gets done.Q: Any advice for aspiring writers?A: Read a lot and write a lot, care deep down about choosing the right words, andgive people a chance to talk to you about what they do.Wit & WordsFive Questions with Roy Blount, Jr.Story by CASEY HILDERRoy Blunt Jr.Despite the lengthy title of his 2008 book, Alphabet Juice: The Energies, Gists, and Spirits of Letters, Words, and Combinations Thereof: Their Roots, Bones, Innards, Piths, Pips, and Secret Parts, Tinctures, Ton-ics, and Essences; With Examples of Their Usage Foul and Savory, Roy Blount, Jr. doesn't mince words.

But that mixture sounds just right for blues aficionados. It took me a long time, 10,000 miles and tough times to find these amazing people, says Ori Naftaly, 28-year-old, Israeli-born guitar player who founded Southern Avenue and plays lead guitar for the band. Southern Avenue is a manifest of my biggest dream, to be in a band that is like a family where everyone takes care of each other. Naftalys journey performing the blues started in 2011, when he put together The Ori Naftaly Band, a group that quickly became known as one of the best blues acts in Israel. But his love of guitar began earlier, at the age of five. I had plenty of guitar teachers, he says, but I was so hyper active, keeping me focused was a big problem. So I spent most of my time jamming to records. Everything from Son House to Led Zeppelin, and from John McLaughlin to Stevie Wonder and Prince.Combining eclectic influence with his fathers tastes in big jazz, fusion, blues and 60s music, staples of Naftalys soundtrack from his youth were Al Green, Ray Charles, Muddy Waters and James Brown. Recognizing their sons abilities on the guitar, his family ensured his instruction in a wide range of genres including Spanish, classical, jazz and funk leading to his acceptance at Rimon School of Jazz & Contemporary Music to study Arrangement and Composition. Despite studying classical guitar with famed Israeli musician Shlomo Yidov, it would be a different teacher Tony Pirson who most inspired Naftalys future path as a musician. From the age of 11 to 21, I had the privilege to have a brilliant guitar teacher who toured with Tina Turner and James Brown for three years. Tony Pirson was a huge influence on my style and the fact he relocated to Israel was my big lucky break in life.It was this kind of early exposure and lucky breaks that would prepare him to later share the stage with such acts as Tab Benoit, Ana Popovic, Bernard Allison, Shemekia Copeland, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Ron Holloway (The Allman Brothers), Marcia Ball, Danielle Nicole and others. His namesake band was named the Best Blues Band in his home country, and in 2013, they flew to historic Beale Street to compete in the International Blues Challenge. They not only reached the semifinals that year they also sold the largest number of CDs ever sold during an IBC event. Blues is the foundation, says Naftaly. Blues was the biggest genre in the world in the early 60s in my opinion, and you can't just ignore it when all these great bands and musicians talk about their roots... and not go after it. Thats why I moved to Memphis, to pursue a dream. I left my family and my friends. I sold my car. I moved to the other side of the world. I arrived in the United States with $700 and a few dates lined up.Following that move, Southern Avenue was born, with the addition of local vocalist Tierinii Jackson and Tikyra Jackson on drums, sisters and preachers daughters raised performing in church in Memphis, Tennessee. The band to me is a safe haven, says Tierinii, the Avenues and Opportunities International Blues Challenge Semifinalists Southern Avenue on family and meandering paths to the bluesStory by TONYA THOMPSON Click magazine | APRIL 2016 19 powerhouse Southern Avenue vocalist who has starred in several musical theatre productions including Dream Girls, Spring Awakening, and Disneys High School Musical 2. Were a team who look out for each other. We're a family. We are all different but passionate. And that spills over into our music and creates a warm balance. I love it. Tikyra "TK" Jackson is Tieriniis sister and cites gospel music as her primary musical influence. At 21 years old, shes been playing drums since she was 9, and grew up playing with the church band. A music business major at the University of Memphis, Jackson continues to hone her craft on the drums with the university's marching band, The Mighty Sound of the South, and in the Memphis Tigers basketball pep band. Add to that mix Jeremy Powell on keys and local bassist, Daniel Mckee. [Mckee] is one of the best and hard-working bass players in Memphis today, says Naftaly. He and I toured over 40 states with my former band and having him with us makes us all play better. The diversity and different influences we all have and also share, makes us a unique, fun group of people.With a self-titled EP and their first full-length LP set to be released in the summer of 2016, Southern Avenue plays multiple shows around Memphis. Their full-length LP will be recorded and produced by Kevin Houston with Luther Dickinson at the Zebra Ranch in Independence, Mississippi.In the meantime, 28-year-old Naftaly is glad he made the leap of faith. Living in Memphis is awesome, he says. So many bars have live music on a regular basis, growing a midtown community great food, warm people. What's not to like? Life is short and Id rather say my goodbyes happy and with no regrets. We only live once and I want to live fullyto create and perform music. 20 APRIL 2016 | Click magazineSUNEVA MEDICAL, INC.

As we age, there are many things going on that make us look droopy and tired. Our collagen production starts slowing down around the age of 16, we lose volume, we have volume shifting south with gravity, we lose bone mass and our skin loses elasticity and starts to sag and wrinkle. There is no single way to address all of these issues. Turning back time and still looking natural takes several modalities.1: tighten and resurface the skin 2: replace lost volume and lift to restore balance 3: reduce extreme muscle bulk to smooth 4: great professional skin careValerie Monismith, RN Valerie@ashtoria.comPurchase 1 kit of Bellafill, Receive 1 syringe FREE plus a free Light Laser Peel (Offer expires April 30, 2016)Contact Us Today for a FREE Consult!Actual client Before & After Dysport, Bellafill & Light Laser Peel Click magazine | APRIL 2016 21 up front drinksRecipe and Photo courtesy of SERENA WOLF Yield: 1 cocktailIngredients:6-8 mint leaves ounce (1 tablespoon) fresh lime juice2 teaspoons ginger simple syrup (recipe below) cup fresh pineapple puree (recipe below)2 ounces light rumSplash of club sodaFor garnish: (optional)Mint sprigLime slicesFor the ginger simple syrup: cups granulated sugar cups water thinly sliced peeled gingerFor the pineapple puree:1 pineapple, peeled, cored and roughly choppedDirections:For the to Pineapple-Ginger Mojito:1.

The word hung in a puff of frozen breath before dissipating into the early-morning fog. Riley Burroughs used that word the same way a master carpenter used a hammer. So begins the opening chapter of Bull Mountain, the debut novel of Brian Panowich which is getting the attention of readers and writers alike. With rave reviews from respected Southern literature authors including Wiley Cash and Tom Franklin, Bull Mountain is gritty, intense, and nearly impossible to put down. At the onset of the novel, readers first encounter the Burroughs clan and a wild ride of darkness and violence unfolds from there. The story is told from multiple points of view, as the tale of a family steeped in generations of crime and vengeance in the Georgia backwoods is masterfully woven by Panowich. While the familys legacy is permeated with the illegal substance trade (from moonshine to marijuana and more), the sheriff of the town, Clayton Burroughs, is one of their own, making his position ever-complicated and calling his loyalty constantly into question. Though Claytons life is ruled by lawfulness and duty in terms of his job, his convoluted past and family ties give him little peace. The question of his allegiance is never far from his thoughts. To make matters more complicated, an ATF agent by the name of Agent Holly arrives on the scene early in the novel. While Clayton has been approached by other agents in the past where his crime-riddled family is concerned, this agent seems different and his proposition leaves plenty of wiggle room for Claytons family. This is a relief to the sheriff, who has refused to be a part of any operation that would land his brothers in prison. Holly promises that Claytons family will remain free and untouched as long as they cooperate with this plan to bring down an even higher-up ring of criminals who they have been involved with for years. This plan will force Clayton to examine his bonds to his family, his loyalty to his job in law enforcement, and the history he shares with his brothers. In addition to the multiple perspectives, the novel moves forward and backwards in time so that readers can understand where the Burroughs family started and how this complicated set of circumstances has come to be. Panowichs characters are indescribably real and each is full of the sort of depth that can only be created by the most gifted of authors. While the crime and violence at the root of the story may seem hard to grasp for many readers at first, the complexities and nuanced detail given to the men in the story helps make them, on some level, relatable and understandable by the end of the tale. For readers and lovers of Southern literature, Panowich will be one of the most exciting new discoveries in a long time. His voice is powerful and courageous. His novel creates a picture as realistic and brilliant as it is chilling. And while on the surface, this book focuses on a disturbing aspect of these characters, it manages to uncover so much about the multifaceted nature of family juxtaposed against the lush backdrop of Appalachia. The novel calls into memory the timeless work of Cormac McCarthy, as well as that of Larry Brown and William Gay. Stylistically, the book packs an undeniable punch and will be loved by fans of Tom Franklins Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter. The focus on the theme of family allows just about any reader to connect with this novel, but it is the authors careful attention to even the tiniest detail that makes it so captivating and impossible to walk away from unchanged. It has been said that writing is the painting of the voice, and this novel is a shining example of how such a talent truly does exist. This book will undoubtedly reinvigorate the world of Southern literature with its electrifying and unforgettable story.

In an outdoor shelter, no roof comes with the furnishings.Four years ago, Angela Pieroni wanted to do something for these dogs. Cold, alone, and outside, they had absolutely nothing. She thought that maybe, with a little effort and determination, she could provide them something: a blanket, a bed, a toy to chew on. With that idea, she started Blankets for Barks.That first year I had just made some flyers on my computer and distributed them around the neighborhood, Pieroni says. It wasnt much but I got a decent response and was able to donate several items to Germantown Animal Shelter.Over the next few years, Pieroni has continued to run the program, from late fall to mid-spring. Each year, she collectsblankets, bedding, and home-related dog items and chooses a new shelter or group to donate the items to.In previous years, she partnered with Meows & Bowwows and the Tunica Humane Society. But this year, she chose Alive Rescue Memphis, after a dog in her hometown touched her heart and the hearts of the online rescue community.Pieroni met that dog, Delta, on Fioranelli Drive, a road named after her family, in her hometown of Greenville, MS. A stray beagle just bouncing down the road might not seem odd in the country, but Delta caught Pieronis eye.Probably everybody just figured he was ok, she says. Thats just what country people do, you know. But you never know whats underlying with these dogs.With Delta, there was a lot underlying. He had fairly advanced heartworms and a series of other major health issues. But Pieroni had made a connection, and was determined to save him.When I found [Delta] I was nervous, but there was no turning back. There was no turning back on this dog.Perioni took Delta to the best vets she could find, and got him the right care, all while sharing their health journey on social media. The process got a lot of attention from local animal lovers and the rescue community, including Alive Rescue Memphis President, Ranice Coppens.A Bed for This Doggone HeadAnelga Pieronis Blankets for Barks provides bedding and toys for area shelter animalsStory by DOUG GILLON | Photos by JACKIE BLANCHup front causesRanise Coppens, founder of Alive Pet Rescue, with Percy and Angela Pieroni. Click magazine | APRIL 2016 27 We met through everything that was going on with Delta, Coppens says, and then it was clear that our missions are pretty much the same, so we started working together.Sadly, the new partnership outlived its inspiration. Delta succumbed to health issues after 47 days.Were still dealing with that, losing Delta, Pieroni says. But weve been able to accomplish so much in his memory.That includes the fourth annual haul for Blankets for Barks, which is the largest ever. Most of the blankets this year will be donated to Alive Rescue Memphis, to be used in foster care for dogs, and some will also be donated to the West Memphis Animal Shelter.Coppens and Pieroni have also started a Delta Fund, which raises money to help strays and shelter animals who are older and show significant medical needs, and have already used that fund to save a dog from West Memphis, whom Pieroni has named Percy after prominent Greenville historical figure, Leroy Percy.Pieroni, a lifelong animal helper who started a cat rescue when she was six years old, has bigger plans for the program moving forward. This year, she intends to make Blankets for Barks themed dog blankets for sale in pet stores, whose profits will benefit the charity. But even with this new tool, she still has no problem tracking down item donations.I dont turn anything down. I will drive to the end of the earth to pick up a sheet.6542 Goodman Rd., STE. 115 Olive Branch 662.895.2111 Mon - Fri 10 AM - 6 PM Sat 10 AM - 5 PMOpen Sundays in December 12-4S H O P.

Tickets for this celebration of uniquely Southern foods are $50, and entry for kids under 12 is free. John Woods, Taste of DeSoto founder and own-er of First Choice Catering, says this years annual event should provide a little some-thing for everyone from pizza purveyors to catfish connoisseurs.Q: Tell us a little about your own culinary background.A: I dont have any formal culinary training in the traditional sense, but I grew up around good cooks and liked to cook. I owned a deli, which later became a catfish restaurant, before opening a catering company and Ive learned as Ive gone along. Q: Where did the idea for this event come from?A: A few years back, I was doing come work in Washington, DC, for the Smithsonian and I learned a lot of things. One of the most interest-ing things I learned was the unifying interests of food. As I worked with countries from all over the world, I saw how food was the one thing that drew people together. There was an event going on at the time called The Taste of DC and I met some of the founders and organizers behind that. Afterwards, I thought to myself: Wouldnt it be nice if we could do that in DeSoto County? So I came up with the idea alongside Tom and Cyndi Pittman and we ran with it. Q: Why DeSoto County?A: I was one of the first restaurant owners in DeSoto County with Catfish Corner. It was very successful, but Id always had the thought that the restaurant business in DeSoto County would be thriv-ing one day. So its really a desire to help out local businesses and local restaurant owners. Another thing was the amount of upstart charities in our county without the infrastructure to host these big fundraisers. We select two charities every year and donate money that they might not have been able to raise any other way. This years charities are The Arc Northwest Mississippi and The Hope Center.event spotlight Click magazine | APRIL 2016 29 National Pet ID WeekApril 17-23, 2016Make sure you properly identify your pets!We encourage pet owners to use one or more of the following pet identification methods to ensure thesafe return of their pets should they become lost:Collars and identification (ID) tagsMicrochippingMake sure it has all current info on the tag and includes: Pet's name, Owner's name and address, Telephone numbers, Any medical problem requiring medication (may require separate tag) Veterinarian's name and number, if possible. Microchipping involves implanting a tiny capsule under the pet's skin between the shoulder blades. Microchips can be used on dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, and other companion pets. The tiny chip is about the size of a grain of rice. The owner then sends the contact information to a registering agency in the event the pet becomes lost. When a pet is found, any agency with an appropriate scanner, can quickly identify a code that links the animal to its owner.

Af-ter researching the runways, one of the reoccurring looks of the season is flat hues and bold accents. Bold brows, lips, foundation, hairbe bold!BOLD SKIN: This winter it was all about contour, but lately the models are going bare when it comes to the base,skipping the rouge and bronzer, instead, opting for foun-dation and a highlighter only to create a nude luminous look. The lighter the skin the bolder, and the better.BOLD BROWS: Thicker, more structured brows are making their reintroduction. Beauty moguls all over the world are accentu-ating their brows by enhancing the arch and thinking the hairline.BOLD LIPS: Move over eyes, this year it is the lips turn to be featured. Bright, matte lip-sticks are the focal point for the face this spring and summer.BOLD LOCKS:Straight locks and blunt cuts are creating a feminine edge to ladies all over the world. Be bold in your hair part to create a more striking look.by Alexandra NicoleThe boldest beauty trends spotted on fashion week runways Click magazine | APRIL 2016 71 Mortgages are subject to approval.

Especially for those attending the Memphis Comedy Festival a four-day showcase of the comedic arts from March 31 to April 3 as it runs its meandering, laugh-inducing course across multiple venues in Memphis. With more than 44 international comedians participating, the event has grown even beyond what its founders could have anticipated. Its amazing, says festival co-founder and CEO Katrina Coleman. The quality of comics we are able to bring in, the support from local audiences and businesses. Memphis is ready to laugh and they know the festival will deliver.With shows at Theatreworks, P&H Caf, the Hi-Tone, The Basement, Studio on the Square, Drus Place, and the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center, the Memphis Comedy Festival is facing its biggest yearalong with some of the biggest names in the business. Pheobe Robinson, a Chicago comedian who has appeared on Last Comic Standing, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, @Midnight, Broad City and Late Night with Seth Myers is headlining. Also featured are Seattle comedian Derek Sheen and New York comedians Kenny DeForest and Mike Albanese.Between events, stand-up showcases, specialty shows, workshops, parties, open-mics and the Dont Be Afraid of the Shorts comedy short film showcase, the festival provides more than 60 hours of comedy shows and events across four days. In previous years, says Coleman, weve been called The summer camp for comics. This year is so big, we want everyone to upgrade us to Space Camp.86 APRIL 2016 | Click magazineWILL LODENIT MIGHT BE EASY TO MISJUDGE COMIC WILL LODEN FROM HIS RESUME. After all, a degree in History and Economics from Ole Miss isnt the most humorous approach to life, and hell be the first to admit that. But its far more difficult to misjudge his roots, especially when he pronounces Mississippi as only natives do. I say Mississippi properlyM-i-s-s-i-p-p-i, says Loden, thats it, we dont need all those extra vowels and consonants. My moms from Aberdeen, in Monroe County, and my dads from Amory in Monroe County. We all slowly scattered across Mississippi, so I got kin in Corinth, Aberdeen, Oxford, Hernando. Weve got some people in Greenwood so yeah, theyre all floating around. WILL LODENThe RookieEVERY TIME WE GATHERED TOGETHER, THEY WOULD JUST HOLD COURT, AND WHOEVER COULD TELL THE MOST INTERESTING STORY GOT THE TABLE. YOU KNOWIF YOU GOT PEOPLE TO LAUGH, THAT WAS AWESOME.

Olive Branch, MS662.893.4824oorstoredesoto.comSpring on this great deal! Come see the new addition to the BIG GREEN EGG FAMILYIt was through his family experience that 26-year-old Loden found his true passion in rhetoric and storytelling before he had barely learned to speak. I started doing comedy when I was three, he says, just because of my family dynamic. Were a very loud, happy family. Every time we gathered together, they would just hold court, and whoever could tell the most interesting story got the table. You knowif you got people to laugh, that was awesome. Its always weird, I try to introduce girlfriends to my family and it typically doesnt last very long because its just conversational Darwinism at its finest.Teaching High School football and Lacrosse in Collierville as his day job, Loden describes performing comedic standup as a sort of addiction. Once I got on stage and I got that first laugh, I was hooked. Despite being the rookie comic, hes seen a change in the Memphis comedy scene in the three years hes been in it. We have a bunch of young comics who are really good and really different, he says. Since we dont have any structure, you get to hear some really crazy stuff and get a lot of awesome experimentation. Its DIY. That kind of growing, DIY scene allows rookie comics the opportunity to participate without jumping through a lot of hurdles. If youre funny, says Loden, you can play in Memphis. Were all just flying by the seat of our pants, getting it out, and it allows for some really good successes.88 APRIL 2016 | Click magazineRICHARD DOUGLAS JONES WILL BE THE FIRST TO SAY THAT COMEDY, quite literally, saved his life following a series of depressing personal events. So I was sitting in my apartment, depressed as hell, collecting unemployment, and comedy was something I always wanted to try. I found out about some open mics here in the city and went and checked it out and have been doing it ever since.It turned out to be a good direction for him. Now, the 37-year-old substitute teacher by day/ comic by night is a recognized comedian in the Memphis comedy scene, in addition to co-hosting a weekly podcast called Black Nerd Power Hour with Markus Seaberry and Malaika Salaam. With discussions of the worlds of Sci Fi and Fantasy from a black point of view, the podcast has over 2,000 subscribers and gets 600 to 800 clicks daily. In addition to playing an integral role in bringing in this years headliner, Phoebee Robinson, he also will be hosting several shows at the Memphis Comedy Festival. Added to that are the responsibilities of being technical director, as well as cattling (as he calls it) the comics, show organizers and volunteers to make sure everything runs smoothly. I remind people to eatWhat are you doing? Have you eaten? he says, laughing.Despite watching the Memphis comedy scene grow and change significantly in the past five years, Jones admits that even he was surprised to see how big the 2016 festival was becoming. Everything kinda grew this year, he says, everything just kind of took off. I was actually looking at a Facebook post from last year and we were bragging about how we had 120 applicants for comics. This year, we had well over 300 submissions, and a few international ones. Welljust Canada, but still, were counting it.

It was risky but would turn out to be a great move for the festival organizers. Ill be the first to admit that I was the voice of dissent on that one, says Jones, I thought it would be better to keep everything in a centralized location. But Katrina [Coleman] kinda talked us all into it. And sure enough, every show we did at every location was packed.Watching the Memphis comedy scene grow is exactly what the areas seasoned comedians want to see. But why comedy in the first place for them? Jones says its all about the challenge. Because not everybody can do it, he says. As a comic, you have your good nights and your bad nights. When its good, I mean, really goodits better than anything you can think of. Youre very much chasing that audience high. And I feel like sometimes people like what I have to say. It is my belief that it is the comedians job to be the mirror to society, in exposing societys truth and ugliness, all the while making people laugh. That duality is always amazing to me. 90 APRIL 2016 | Click magazineMAGNOLIA FEST5K & F U N RUN3RD ANNUAL SAT.

Click magazine | APRIL 2016 91 ENTERTAININGSurf & CelebrationPlanning a coastal dinner party for a large group of friendsStory by MICHELLE HOPE92 APRIL 2016 | Click magazineentertainingNOTHING GETS US MORE IN the mood to entertain than spring on the Coast. This Coastal celebration couldnt have been more inviting as guests enjoyed the sunset on the rooftop for cocktails and a surf and turf menu for dinner. The Gulf Coast of Mississippi has so much to offer when entertaining. The Oyster Reef restaurant sits right on the beach in Long Beach, Mississippi so when we found out they had a rooftop and private dining room available for events, we snatched it up! The restaurant also has gorgeous panoramic views throughout.This intimate dinner party for 30 guests was to celebrate a milestone birthday, but could easily be duplicated for a rehearsal dinner, pre-prom dinner, anniversary party or even a girls night out. NOTE-WORTHYThe invitations, place cards, menus, and cigar labels were all custom designed by Joanna Larson of Southerly Post, who we found on Etsy. We even had the option to print everything ourselves which saves time and money. The cigar labels were our favorite. Those doubled as a favor and entertainment during this Dirty 30 themed bash. We also gave each guest a little bag of local coffee from The Coast Roast.FRESH & FESTIVEThe French Potager of Bay St. Louis did the floral design. When throwing a dinner party, you want to keep the centerpieces low so guests can talk easily, but you dont want to sacrifice the look of the table so go with something full and lush, but low. We chose a garland and incorporated lots of candles for ambiance. We added some Italian bulb lights in the ceiling to give the room a soft glow.We chose a bold linen from Party Tables with a deep cobalt blue pattern that re-ally popped. With long, dramatic tables, a bold pattern is all you need to really create a dramatic affect. Everything else can be simple to coordinate with the look. Click magazine | APRIL 2016 93 entertainingSHORESIDE SERVINGS When choosing a menu for a buffet, be sure to include starters and accompani-ments with the main course. This ensures you have something for everyone, no matter their preference, and also you have a complete meal.We chose to do a pre-selected menu for a buffet-style dinner for this party and offered the following:To begin, Chargrilled Oysters on the half shell and Cajun Boiled Royal Red Shrimp served with Remoulade Sauce; Caesar Salad with homemade Dressing; tossed with Parmesan Cheese and fresh-baked Croutons;Roasted Beef Tenderloin; served with Horseradish Aioli Green Beans Almandine;Garlic Infused Vermicelli and Chocolate Ganache Birthday Cake. We also offered a beer and wine selection, and Southern Sweet Tea to drink.SOURCESPHOTOGRAPHERLisa Cooke lisacookephotography.comVENUE & CATEREROyster Reef ClubLong Beach MS228.206.7868oysterreefclub.com/EVENT PLANNERMichelle Hope, Social Butterflies LLC socialbutterfliesevents.comINVITATION & PAPER DETAILS Southerly Post southerlypost.comFLORAL DESIGNThe French Portagerfacebook.com/thefrenchpotager/LINENSParty Tablespartytables.comCAKECandace Giuffria850.238.9702RENTALSABC Rentalsabcrental.comCOFFEE FAVORSCoast Roast Coffee & Teathecoastroast.com94 APRIL 2016 | Click magazinePollution SolutionsGreen-clean your home in 10 easy stepslive well Special Advertising SectionAMERICANS SPEND MOST OF OUR TIME indoors and, thanks to tightly sealed homes and workplaces, the concentration of pollutants indoors may be even higher than outdoors. Many of the cleaning products, textiles and air fresheners we use release volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which can create a toxic environment for our families. Exposure to these chemicals in our homes may have serious health effects, including respiratory problems, skin irritations, hormone disruption and even birth defects. Reduce your pollution and turn your home into a green sanctuary with these ten green tips. 1 Buy natural cleaning products. Choose green products from natural lines like Biokleen, Ecover, Mrs. Meyers, and Seventh Generation.2 Schedule routine changes of your central heating/cooling air filters. Choose HEPA filters to further improve your air quality. 3 Open your windows weekly. Allow fresh air to filter your home naturally and refresh your living environment.4 Replace your air fresheners. Sure, we all love a great smelling house, but most of the chemical air fresheners on the market are toxic poison. Try a Scentball (available at birchhillhappenings.com) and an organic essential oil. With this easy-to-use plug-in ball, you can drop a few drops of your favorite essential oil and turn your home into a spa oasis.5 Only use soy or beeswax candles with essential oils. Like the air fresheners, most candles are filled with dangerous chemicals that may irritate your lungs and skin. 6 Reduce your EMF (electromagnetic frequency) exposure with extension cord strips with power buttons. Studies show that the electromagnetic exposure from wi-fi, cellular phones, and common electronic devices may disrupt our central nervous system. By plugging electronics into a strip, you can reduce your electricity consumption by 20% by turning off electronics not in use and limit your exposure to EMFs. Remove as many electronics from your bedroom as possible, especially around your bed. 7 Switch your cookware. Traditional non-stick cookware contains PFOA, a chemical used to bond non-stick coating to the pan. This has been discovered as toxic, and has been blamed with killing pet birds when heated to a high temperature. It has been deemed a "likely carcinogen" by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and manufacturers were asked to phase it out by the year 2015. Metals, such as aluminum, nickel and chromium, have been known to leach into our foods over time as cookware becomes compromised from scratches and deterioration. Choose greener options such as cast iron or GreenLife ceramic cookware. 8 Update your paints. Low and zeroVOC paints are now commonly available at paint stores, and certain brands of finishes have been developed that don't off-gas for a cleaner living space. Safecoat.com is one option for safe finishes, stains, paints and carpet cleaners.9 Avoid plastic food packaging. Plastic packaging is unstable, which means the chemicals can migrate into the food or drink. Some plastics migrate when heated up, others when cooled down, and others upon contact. If you microwave plastic, it may increase the contamination level. Substitute glass or metal containers for plastic ones. Ditch your chemical skin care products. With the many organic and natural skin care products available today, there is simply no reason to use chemicals on our skin. Read your ingredients. If you cant eat it, dont put it on your skin. Choose green skin care lines like Dr. Bronners, Andelou, and 100% Pure. Amber S.
