Many search far and wide for a unique way to spend Valentine’s Day. This year, Cedar Street Social Club will give the public a new alternative to the typical flowers-card-and-candy combination — the Azalea City’s one-stop for the perfect Valentine’s Day experience. For those going solo, the general admission ticket will be a chance to find that special someone, while the “Better than Ruby Tuesday” ticket will give couples early access to the venue, two cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres.
A VIP ticket will grant access to a special area and includes an open bar. In addition to food and drinks, The Heartbreaker Ball will include musical entertainment that begins with a set from local country rockers The Red Clay Strays.
Brooks Hubbard III will be the event’s headliner. This Gulfport-based singer-songwriter will be crooning his way into the hearts of everyone. Hubbard is a jam-minded gentleman who uses his Southern rock and soul to evoke the spirit of such greats as John Bell (Widespread Panic) and Warren Haynes (Gov’t Mule).
Hubbard has collected a batch of choice cuts for his album “Sirius Face.” In addition to epic jams, Hubbard has a few slow numbers to spread the love among the Valentines in the crowd.
