Deepest South.


Headed to Miami this eve for a Friday wedding.

It will also serve as a fact finding mission: if we can find grits, sweet tea, or collards on South Beach, we'll consider printing up a Florida print.

If not (and I imagine not) we'll still need a bit of convincing that there are actual Southerners living there, and not just AARP folks who winter there but are from the Cape.

  1. I promise you, if you were to stick along I-10, you'd find all of those things in abundance. Though it's certainly not the Deep South, Pensacola, Tallahassee, Lake City, Jacksonville and points between are most certainly southern. (I always tell people, Florida's the only state where you go north to get South.)

    However, the Sweet Home print works for my dual state-ship: The Florida and Alabama flags are almost the same (Florida's got a seal in the middle) and Lynyrd Skynyrd's from Jacksonville. So I might have *my* bases covered, especially as a someone who was born in Birmingham but raised in Jacksonville.

  2. Absolutely no grits or sweet tea on South Beach, but you should get over to Shorty's BBQ on Dixie Highway next to Dadeland Mall for my favorite BBQ ever. I dream about their food. The brisket and cole slaw are my favorite, and make sure to ask for extra sauce on the side - they serve it warm so you can slather it on.

  3. Please do a Florida print. The hubs is from FLORIDA & said I can't have a GA print if he can't have a FL one. Have fun & happy birthday!

  4. As a Floridian, I'd love to see what you could do with our motto or history. Glad to have a company like yours around.

  5. As the president of the Southern Student Association at FSU, I can assure you that you won't find grits or sweet tea in South beach-- but you should still do a Florida print. To find the last vestiges of the South in Florida, you'll have to head farther north, to cities like Jacksonville or Tallahassee.

  6. Yeah I would go gulf coast to find some southern in Florida. I live in Mount Dora (central florida older small town tourist destination), and you have to go out in the country but then you do find some old florida there.
