Have you seen or heard of Dixie Longate? If so, you’d remember as she’s pretty hard to forget! She used to hold Tupperware Parties but with the COVID environment, she’s moved on to hosting a Happy Hour ( and a half). Dixie Longate aka Kris Anderson wants to give back to the theaters that are struggling during the pandemic, so 80% of proceeds from Dixie’s Happy Hour Stream will benefit the theaters and institutions that have helped Dixie rise to stardom.
Right now, the world needs a drinking buddy, and there’s no one more qualified for the job than Alabama’s favorite daughter, Dixie Longate — a gal who’s never too far away from a cocktail.Spend an evening with Dixie on this uproariously raucous joyride where she’ll inspire you to find your personal happy hours while serving up the four basic food groups: gin, rum, vodka and tequila. Dixie Longate, everyone’s favorite Alabama redhead, is back with an all-new streaming show. If you’ve been to thesmash off-Broadway hit Dixie’s Tupperware Party or spent time with her in Dixie’s: Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding a Mechanical Bull (and 16 other things I learned while I was drinking last Thursday) then you know Dixie’s sweet charm and infectious southern drawl always keep you in stitches. This time around, she’s going digital to bring you some new stories while she’s mixing up some cocktails and challenging you to find the Happy Hours that are right in front of you but you may be overlooking.
