This thread is to document the great places to enjoy Hot Tamales in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1:State w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">Mississippi</st1lace></st1:State>, but contributions from other states are welcome. Its origin derived from discussions on several of the <st1:State w:st="on">Mississippi</st1:State> threads of visits to local Jackson and <st1:City w:st="on">Vicksburg</st1:City> establishments, Fat Mama’s in <st1:City w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">Natchez</st1lace></st1:City>, and the Onward Store. Limited internet research provided a starting point: ...there is a Tamale Festival in the Tamale Capitol of the world. http://www.hottamalefest.com/index.html Several discussions prompted this thread, especially this one by DavidQ, BackwoodsKLR, Anticyclone, and MSRider. From a NYD ride - the Onward Store. So, pick a place, ride, review, and post a few pictures of interesting places on the ride.
