Thurs 3/23 – 4-9:00 PM Southeast Sports 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 & 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 22,244,823, Georgia with 10,912,876 and North Carolina a close second with 10, 698,973. The common most interesting fact about the Southeast is our keen interest in sports, maybe it’s the warm weather or our downright competitiveness.
