Enjoy a vanilla malted at the old-timey soda fountain, Brent's Drugs.
Jackson's renaissance is most evident in the Fondren district, just north of downtown. Pop into modern furniture store Max (2906 N. State St., 601-957-0402) to ogle the snazzy selection of lamps and chairs, then grab a slice of New York-style pizza at Sal & Mookie's. Kick it back with a Subway Sipper (Crown Royal whiskey, amaretto, peach schnapps and cranberry juice) from the in-house bar, Pi(e), or head to the soda fountain at Brent's Drugs (655 Duling Ave., 601-366-3428) and sip a vanilla malted.
