I’m ashamed to admit that I just found out at an Oxford Secret Supper that Lenora’s hosted a special Yocona Night on Mother’s Day! Yes, that’s right! Paige Osborn was at Lenora’s on Mother’s Day, serving up a Yocona menu. The bar was also open thanks to the new Sunday Sales ruling (no brown bags necessary).
Well, consider this fair warning for the next Yocona Night. It’s scheduled to happen on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19th, at Lenora’s. Mark your calendars now and make your reservations early (turns out they will be taking reservations this time). Sunday alcohol sales will apply again for Father’s Day (11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.). Check in with the Yocona in Exile Facebook page for updates closer to the event.
Paige says they plan to hold Yocona Nights on a regular basis, although probably not on Sundays.
In the meantime, if you’ve been craving some Yocona Sauce, you can pick up a bottle of it in several places around town:
LB’s Meat Market
The Farmer’s Market on Old 7
Stan’s on Highway 6 West (near the Water Valley exit)
The Red Door gift shop in Pontotoc
If you’re out of town and would like a bottle shipped, the folks at Mississippi Madness can hook you up: 662-234-5280.
