Po Monkey Road
Po' Monkey's Juke Joint
Ever since watching The Color Purple, I've always been fascinated by the juke joint. Currently attending some training in the Mississippi Delta, I had the opportunity to check out the regions oldest (so they say) juke joint. Owned and run by Willie Seaberry (Mr. Po' Monkey himself), this place is located off an unpaved gravel road surrounded by cotton fields. Check it out on a Thursday night with your bottle of whiskey in hand. I'd recommend spraying yourself with some OFF. Mississippi mosquitoes are just as inviting as the South's hospitality.
