On Saturday, May 20, the St. Tammany Art Association combines two classic icons of southern living in “Seersucker & Sazeracs” at the Southern Hotel. Presented by Avanti Senior Living and The Sazerac Company, the event features New Orleans’ signature drink and America’s first cocktail, the sazerac, live music and catering by the area’s best restaurants. Seersucker & Sazeracs benefits the arts center’s education programs and exhibitions.
Mix, mingle, and enjoy another southern icon, the beautifully restored, historic Southern Hotel at 428 E. Boston St. in charming downtown Covington, Louisiana. Fully restored to its 1907 glory, the Southern is a key figure in supporting public art in Covington. From dozens of original artworks by regional artists and rich murals depicting local Covington, to the award-winning Oxlot 9 Restaurant—not to mention sumptuous rooms and elegant spaces—the Southern is a natural fit as STAA’s partner in bringing you “Seersucker & Sazeracs”.
Guests will enjoy lively music by the Ben Redwine Trio and stellar cuisine by English Tea Room & Eatery, Dakota Restaurant, Del Porto Ristorante, Gallager’s Grill, Oxlot 9 and Pardo’s American Bistro. A popular feature of the event is an art auction, with works for bid by John Marc Anderson, Gretchen Armbruster, Carol Hallock, Robert Santopadre, Cynthia Webb, Robert Dutruch, Chuck Wright and Paul Gruer. Artist Peg Usner is donating a house portrait of an 11×14, oil on canvas painting, for a local area house.
Tickets are $75 per person and include food, drinks and music.
