Thurs 10/21 – 4-9:00 PM – Southeast brandy cocktail specials – What comprises the Southeast United States? Well it depends on which survey you use but the US Geological Survey includes Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee + Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. But for our drinking survey we have chosen the cocktail of our closest neighbor states to tell us something about our neighbors: South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia and of course us – North Carolina. The most populated of the southeast is Florida with 21,538,187, Georgia with 10,711, 908 and North Carolina a close second with 10, 439,388. The common most interesting fact about us is our keen interest in sports.
