Grab a Cocktail Kit To Go and Settle in for Dixie’s Happy Hour

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, February 22, 2021 – There’s still time to get tickets to one of the eight streaming performances of Dixie’s Happy Hour Feb. 25-28 and March 4-7. Walton Arts Center is presenting the digital production as part of Procter & Gamble Ghost Light Programming. And now, thanks to four local liquor stores you can get a cocktail kit to go for the show.

Play along with Dixie as she mixes drinks from the four basic food groups—rum, gin, vodka and tequila—with a cocktail kit that includes the mixers and liquor to make two margaritas, screwdrivers, rum and Cokes and Tom Collins. Garnish items are not included.

The kits are available at each store by asking for the Dixie’s Happy Hour Cocktail Kit. The purchase of cocktail kits will support each of the four locally owned liquor store partners. There are stores in both Benton and Washington counties. Kit contents, brands and pricing will vary from store to store but range from $35 to $50. Participating stores include:

Fayetteville

Dixie Longate inspires everyone with her Alabama wisdom and raucous stories. For this show, Longate will be mixing drinks while sharing an uplifting story that challenges the audience to search for their personal happy hours and find the good in even the most complicated situations. Her sweet charm and infectious southern drawl will make you want to belly up to the bar for more.

This is not an on-demand performance. This ticketed, streamed performance is only available to view at your selected performance time. So, pick up your cocktail kit and be sure to “arrive” on time because you can’t pause or replay what you miss. Tickets must be purchased two hours prior to the show time. Patrons will receive an email with a link to access their ticketed performance.
