Every Monday we bring you the SL Hot List, a roundup of the five latest and greatest things to hit the South. Consider it your weekly update on our region’s most buzzworthy food, culture, and style news.

1. Shotgun Supper Club. Thomasville, Georgia, is one little town we’ve certainly got our eye on, and this Thursday night’s Shotgun Supper Club is no exception. Founded and curated by Nan Myers and Carol Whitney, the Supper Club celebrates sourcing local, seasonal food and wants to enjoy and share it with others. Libbie Summers will be preparing this Thursday’s feast with dishes such as peanut soup, massaged kale salad, spring pea bruschetta, and habanero carrot cake. The location is disclosed only to ticket holders, but click here for more information on future Supper Club tickets.

2. StorylineLouisiana native and country singer Hunter Hayes will release his sophomore album Storyline this Tuesday. In our May issue’s Paper Napkin Interview, Hayes says he wrote or cowrote all the songs. “Everybody’s got a story, and this is mine,” he says. To preorder the album, visit hunterhayes.com.

3. A New Creative Hub. Charleston, South Carolina’s latest buzzy spot, is open for business. 1600 Meeting, a renovated building in downtown Charleston, offers a place for all types of creatives to work and collaborate with others. Tenants such as Troubadour Clothing and Angie Hranowsky Design have been slowly moving in, and we can’t help but follow the opening process of this creative working space. 

4. Nashville Fashion. This Friday marks the chance to see up-and-coming Franklin, Tennessee fashion students’ collections at the 16th annual O’More Fashion Show. One standout includes Maarika Mann, one of Nashville Fashion Week’s top 10 emerging designers for 2014. The show will take place at Liberty Hall in the Factory at Franklin at 8 p.m. Tickets can be found here, and all proceeds benefit the O’More student scholarship fund.

5. Brews and Music. A weekend full of craft beer and bluegrass music is a weekend well spent, and the folks near Huntersville, North Carolina, have a chance to experience just that this Saturday. The fourth annual North Carolina Brewers and Music Festival presented by Rural Hill will feature eight bands and even more brewing companies. Tickets here.
