VIDEO INTERVIEW and PHOTOS
Magical Madge and I were in Helena yesterday, visiting several iconic spots, before swinging by the King Biscuit Blues Festival office to mention that Clark House Residential Inn in Clarksdale still had a couple openings for the 30th Annual King Biscuit Blues Festival, taking place from October 7-10. Y’all holla at ya boy if you need a room. 662-645-9197.
Not sure when the new restaurant was going to open, we decided to go check on John Mohead at Southbound Pizza located downtown on the infamous Cherry St. Natalie McCollum, Southbound Pizza GM, John and Jenn Mohead, and a couple employees were busy readying for their soft opening today.
Folks, we gots to support entrepreneurs in these trying financial, bureaucracy-ridden times. Anybody willing to put some serious skin into any downtown, retail venture in a Southern town deserves some love! We love ya, Johnny! BTW, Johnny, could ya put the unparalleled Kathryn’s salad on the menu?
Southbound will open up for lunch for a couple weeks before expanding its hours. It does have a full liquor license and the menu will not be static. Check out the following spontaneous interview with John, and be sure and check out his new restaurant venture in Helena. Cheers! pw
