Experience Lust in Liquid Form with Vixen Vodka

Naughtiness…distilled

Ladies. You’ve had a long week. Non-stop, on the go, hustling and bustling, you’ve accomplished more in one week than most do in a month. In between soccer practice for the kids, cooking gourmet meals for the family, and ruling the boardroom at the company——all while making sure that your make-up is flawless and no hair is out of place, you deserve a reward. You deserve…something special.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM

THE EAT. DRINK. REPEAT. FAMILY!

 

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. – W.T. Purkiser

 

On this day when we give thanks, the operative word is to give. Many families in my hometown (and neighboring areas) have been displaced from their homes and have lost everything due to Hurricane Sandy. So on this day, we ask you to donate to those in need –  you can see a list of ways to help, volunteer and donate here… and for that kind gesture we give you thanks.

Recently, we seemed to have found irresistible recipes (or invented a few of our own) and perfected our Thanksgiving dinner. Whether your gathering with your family or friends, here’s some dinner inspiration from our table to yours.

Chef Ford Fry has a winner with latest venture The Optimist

Newest addition to the Fry food empire has locals and national food writers buzzing

Growing up in the northeast has meant access to some of the finest seafood from Maine to Maryland. It’s also made me somewhat of an expert in the field of crustaceans. Summers in Boston spent at Neptune Oyster and Island Creek Oyster Bar, Abbott’s Lobster in the Rough in Noank, CT, and countless nights at some of New York City’s culinary masterpieces including Pearl Oyster Bar, Mary’s Fish Camp and Red Hook Lobster Pound. So it seemed living in Atlanta meant sacrificing the food I’ve come to know and love most in my world… until now – Meet The Optimist.
