Win 2 Tickets to All Things Southern at the Memphis Botanic Garden!

Ah, summer in the South. It feels like it's pretty much here already with Memorial Day weekend upon us and a little warmth in the air. This means it's time to look forward to some familiar and beloved rituals: making just-picked tomato sandwiches, sitting outside in the backyard all night, having buckets of fresh produce to use up, watching fireworks with the family, grilling anything and everything, biking just for a breeze, eating that first perfect peach and first slice of good watermelon, sometimes stealing a nap in the late afternoon because it's way too hot to do much else until evening comes...we love it all.

We're SO ready to celebrate summer with y'all, so Memphis-area folks, get ready! We have another event for our Southern Vegetarian cookbook coming up next week in conjunction with the Memphis Botanic Garden. See below for your chance to win 2 free tickets ($70 value; age 21 & up) to All Things Southern at the Memphis Botanic Garden this Tuesday, May 28, at 6 to 8 p.m -- and the winner will also snag a copy of our cookbook! We would love to see everyone there next week; it's sure to be a great summer kickoff.

To enter, comment below and tell us your favorite thing about summertime in the South. (We moderate comments as we receive them, so don't worry if it takes a little while for yours to appear.) We'll choose the winner of the 2 tix and book by random number generator on Memorial Day at 10 a.m. CST and post the results here and on Facebook. Your tickets will be held for you at will call the day of the event. Good luck!
