Mad Mod Affair Eastover


Mad Mod Affair Eastover

 On February 26 and 27, 2015, preservationists from around the state trooped to the Eastover neighborhood of Jackson for cool cocktails, hot jazz and a taste of all things mod. The Mad Mod Affair Eastover kicked off on Thursday with a reception and tour at the incomparable modernist home of Risa and Jack Moriarity. Robert Arender from the Apothecary at Brent’s Drugs treated guests to the Last Word, a cocktail that had its heyday in the 1950s, while renown jazz pianist Andy Hardwick tickled the ivories of the Moriaritys’ grand piano, a family heirloom. The lucky 150 ticket holders explored the house and chatted about ways to save “the new historic”. On Friday, throngs of architecture buffs visited the retro residences of Sybil and Jim Child, John Hooks, Katie and Dee Lovelace and Cindy and Jeff Wilson.
