Krew of Fat Mama’s Annual Natchez Poker Run

It’s the Natchez Poker Run day!

Registration is at Fat Mama’s Tamales.

The Poker Run starts at 9 and the lead vehicle leaves Fat Mama’s tamales at 10!

We have t-shirts, Bloody Mary’s, 50/50 bucket, and lunch plates. See you there!

Take a look at an excerpt from The Democrat article on the Poker Run:

“We are ready to roll for the sixth annual Krewe of Fat Mama’s Poker run. Again this year the Krewe of Fat Mama’s and Adams County Search and Rescue have teamed up to host the 2016 Natchez Poker Run. All raised monies benefit Adams County Search and Rescue (ACSAR).  ACSAR is a 100-percent volunteer group that depends on fund raisers to bring a valuable service to you, our citizens.  Bring your bike, buggy, classic vehicle, (anything street legal), to Fat Mama’s Tamales (FMT), Saturday.  Your participation will help ACSAR protect you.

Adams County Search and Rescue is a volunteer organization dedicated to the mission of search and rescue, Mississippi River safety, first aid/CPR, evidence recovery and other tasks assisting the population of Adams County.

The sixth annual schedule starts with registration from 9  a.m. until 10 a.m. at Fat Mama’s Tamales, 303 S. Canal St. The event begins at 10 a.m. All street legal vehicles will leave for Illusion’s on the Vidalia-Ferriday highway. Following this, our route takes us to the Under-the-Hill Saloon on Silver Street, then on to CR’s for lunch. Lunch will consist of a hamburger plate for $5 with a drink.  About 1:45 p.m. we leave for Natchez Power Sports in Washington to obtain a third card for your poker hand, followed by a scenic ride out U.S. 33 to the 33 Roadhouse to get a fourth card. All vehicles will arrive back at Fat Mama’s to draw their fifth card at approximately 4:15 p.m.” – The full poker run article can be viewed here.

Let’s Put Natchez, Mississippi on the Today Show!

Friends & Neighbors,

Melissa, our wholesale manager brought to my attention an upcoming project between Sorted Food and the Today Show.  They are teaming up to bring the guys from Sorted Food from across the pond to the States to learn & discover about “American” cuisine.

They will be checking in with the Today Show hosts weekly to report what they ate, where they have been and what they have been up too.  The best part is they are looking for suggestions, recommendations and ideas from anyone and everyone.

You can use the hashtag “#LostAndHungry” across all social media to let them know your thoughts!  The more recommendations and suggestions they get, the more likely they will be to visit Natchez!

Here is the article about it:

You may not know what exactly Sorted Food is all about just yet, you can read about them here:

You probably know who and what the Today Show is, if not you can read about it here:

The best part is while they focus on food, they are also looking for unique characters along the way, which is perfect for Natchez!

So, here is what you need to do:

Make social media posts about what and where in Natchez is the best place for a specific food item, use #LostAndHungry, share other people’s posts and let the guys at Sorted Food know Natchez, Mississippi is a unique place to experience a little slice of America.

Much love from Fat Mama’s and happy hash-tagging!
