Recap Part 2: Taste of Atlanta 2012

The Main Event

We continue our two part recap series with the main event – the Taste of Atlanta 2012 weekend. After The Big Grill, we had our game faces on and were ready to dig in to all the city had to offer. Fellow Eat. Drink. Repeat. editor Chris Watkins was one of the judges on Saturday, while I set out to try (almost) everything thereā€¦ I got full pretty quickly, so thankfully my team of expert foodie friends helped manage the work load.
