We’re half way through the first month of 2018 and there is already so much to look forward to in this neck of the woods! Whether you’re planning on shopping, dining out or needing to stock up on hunting and fishing supplies, everything you need can be found in one location right here at The Connection!
Valentine’s Day is less than one month away, so head to the Outlets of Mississippi to get all your shopping done! You’ll find all sorts of gift ideas such as jewelry, apparel, shoes, handbags and wallets, toys, monogramed items, chocolates, popcorn, cookies and even home décor. You’ll always find extra deals by checking out the SALES page. Between February 1st and 14th, you’ll even have a chance to WIN a special prize by being spotted by the Valentine’s Day Facebook Brigade!
Need to do some Valentine’s Day shopping for the cowboy or cowgirl in your life? Then head on over to Cavender’s for name brand boots, apparel, hats and accessories! Your special someone will LOVE a new cowboy hat or pair of boots just in time for the Dixie National Rodeo starting February 8!
Some say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. But any hunter’s or fishermen’s wife will tell you it’s through a new rifle and ammo or new rod and reel! Treat your Valentine to a shopping spree at Bass Pro Shop where you’ll find all-things-outdoors for your wildlife enthusiast! Whether you’re shopping small for warm hunting clothing and shoes or shopping big for a new ATV or bass boat, Bass Pro Shop has an enormous selection to choose from! Also, make plans to stop by this weekend, January 20th, from noon to 4pm to learn about guiding and outfitting services to help you plan your next adventure! Free roll-up fleece to the first 50 customers that visit the demo. Crappie Madness Event and Sale is February 3rd and 10th from noon to 5pm with fried fish samples and fun activities for the kids.
After you do your shopping, wine down at the Alumni House for Wine Down Wednesdays! Valentine’s Day happens to fall on a Wednesday, so bring your sports enthusiast in for a glass of red or white (or maybe a beer!) and enjoy a delicious burger, po boy, fresh tuna or nachos while catching the latest in sport’s news on one of their many televisions! Alumni House is conveniently located in the Holiday Inn right across from Trustmark Park.
Congratulations to Alumni House on being named BEST SPORTS BAR in Rankin County by the Rankin County Chamber & Hometown Magazines!
Speaking of Trustmark Park, be sure to make plans to attend the upcoming College Series where Mississippi’s best come together for a combative series between Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss! Ole Miss vs Southern Miss April 10th and Mississippi State vs Ole Miss April 24th! Another great gift idea for your Valentine could be season tickets for the 2018 M-Braves season! Start planning a group outing or company get-together by booking a luxury suite or plan ahead for fun times with the family with the best seats in the house!
