So popular, we added an extra night!
Burnt Hickory is hosting our annual Men's Night with great food, fun, and inspirational encouragement. It's an awesome night to gather together as men and fellowship. Last year it really took off, so we've added a second night. That's right, we now have 2 nights to choose from, and it's all hosted in the Lower Auditorium. Go ahead and think about who you want to invite with you for one of the evenings. Tickets will go on sale on February 12th at noon.
We know you care deeply about leading your family and being successful in life, and Men's Night is a great time to find a group of guys with the same goals in life and find ways to get plugged in here at Burnt Hickory. Our goal is for you to be inspired to be a better husband, father, son, employee, and man of God. No matter where you are in your faith journey, we have a place for you.
There will be a lot of amazing door prizes given out during the night as well as some fun games and competitions at your tables. We'll be serving brisket nachos and street style tacos to each table, and you'll have toppings and fixings to choose from as you enjoy dinner together. Tickets are priced per each seat either night at $25.00 each and we'll have VIP tickets for $35.00 each.
Wear your favorite team jersey!
More About Our Speaker
A major-league ballplayer gets called a lot of things during his career, and a manager probably more so. In the case of Edgar Frederick Yost III, some of those things include taxidermist, catcher, grinder, idiot, app developer, survivor, twitter hashtag (#yosted), clothier, pot scrubber, and hunter. Oh, and one more thing — World Series champion manager.
After a brief stint managing in the minors, Yost joined the Atlanta Braves organization. He was the Braves' bullpen coach from 1991 to 1998 and earned a ring as a part of the 1995 World Series championship team that defeated the Cleveland Indians in six games. He also was part of the 1991, 1992, 1996, and 1999 National League pennant-winning teams that lost the World Series to the Minnesota Twins (1991), the Toronto Blue Jays (1992), and the New York Yankees (1996, 1999) respectively. In 1999 Yost became the Braves' third base coach, a position he maintained until the end of the 2002 season.
Yost and his wife, Deborah, have four children and live in rural Georgia during the off-season. One of his sons, Ned Yost IV, serves as a coach for the Nashville Sounds, Class AAA minor league affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. Prior to becoming a coach in 2009, the younger Yost played first base for the Class-A Brevard County Manatees in 2007, his third season in the minors, hitting .248 with a .283 slugging percentage.
