In addition to the Whole Hog offerings, Keith will feature his famous pulled pork and pulled chicken along with ribs/rib tips, brisket and delicious sides. The Christian Benner Experience: New York-based fashion designer Christian Benner is known for his custom-distressed leather jackets and band tees that he produces by hand. He was initially inspired by the do-it-yourself fashion in the punk rock scene of the late Ď70s and early Ď80s. Benner used the same attitude to create his first original designs and cultivated his own unique grasp of rock and roll culture in his clothing. The records he listens to often inspire his work and his designs are treated as an artistic process similar to the creation of a painting. His custom leather jackets and t-shirts are sought by musicians and stylists for events, and he recently wrapped up designing the wardrobe for Guns ĎNí Roses on their current reunion tour. Make sure you stop by his workspace in Bourbon World to see him in action and check out some of his select pieces and get your band merch customized!

Take Me Home also supports local animal charities. Come by the booth to help out our furry friends by buying a shirt, signed merchandise, and entering a raffle. Danny Wimmer, Founder, DWP, said, ďDWP is proud to support various charities, giving them a national platform to promote their messages. We are particularly fond of Take Me Home, which advocates for animal adoption. I hope everyone stops by their booth and supports their fundraising efforts to help animals in need.Ē For more information, please visit: www.takemehome.tv.
