Local brewery to host 4th annual Redneck-themed fundraiser
MURFREESBORO – Aug 12, 2016 – Mayday Brewery invites local craft beer lovers to release their inner redneck for its 4th annual Hot Chicken & Jorts South celebration. Yes, that is “jorts,” as in blue jeans cut into shorts. 

Admission is free and the event will be held from 11:30-9:00 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27, at Mayday Brewery, the event will serve as a fundraiser for The Oasis Center, a Nashville-based non-profit for at-risk teens. Also, the same day at 6:00, Operation Education Animal Rescue will be holding a silent auction fundraiser called Rockin’ 4 Rescue.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken will provide its famous hot chicken all day. Hattie B’s has two locations in Nashville and has quickly become a favorite hot chicken spot for locals and out-of-towners alike. For those with less adventurous pallets, local food truck Buns on the Run will be serving gourmet burgers and smoothies.

“Cut your jean shorts just a little too short, comb your mullet and let that beer belly hang out,” says Nelson founder of Mayday Brewery, calling the event “a redneck costume party. There will be a photo booth, and an outdoor cash bar, so bring some cash, slather some sunscreen, and bring lawn chairs.”    

Mayday will also host a very tongue-in-cheek contest to crown King and Queen of the Trailer Park during the event. The King and Queen will each take home a customized Jug of Fun.

In addition to craft brews and hot chicken, the Hot Chicken & Jorts party will feature live music starting at 4:00p.m. with blues/rock performances by Scissormen, Jackillacs, and Thunderfrog.
