Are you missing the gentle sounds of the South? We do!  As a newer residents of Denver, and Tennessee & Alabama natives, we were missing everything Southern. We will be in a store, restaurant, or at a networking event, and make a beeline to anyone that had the slightest twang. And everyone that we've met, whether from Dallas to Darlington, or from Nashville to New Orleans, misses home. It doesn't matter where you are from, as long as its south of the Mason Dixon line! Our group demographic will be based on the New South, as defined by some random encyclopedia. The New South consists of: Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Georgia, N Carolina, S Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas (yes its part of the south), W Virginia, and Oklahoma. The purpose of our group is to give all of us Southern girls a way to meet, while enjoying some comfort food or fun activity. If you are a "GRIT," make sure to join us for our next get together! Don't forget to find us on Facebook, under Denver Grits, too!!
