Go ahead…get hooked.

It was only a matter of time before ATL restaurant think tank Fifth Group added delights from the briny deep to its culinary repertoire. With Italian (La Tavola Trattoria), European (Ecco), Mexican (The Original El Taco & Alma Cocina), and Southern (South City Kitchen Vinings & Midtown) offerings already represented, it was a natural progression to develop a concept focused on seafood and global coastal traditions.

The Speakeasy Cocktail Festival

Atlanta’s first cocktail festival takes center stage…

In a city where beer festivals are weekly and almost every street has their own, I often wondered when it would be time for an event solely focused on cocktails. It’s an easy sell. A Prohibition-era themed cocktail festival in the vein of Tales of the Cocktail and the Manhattan Cocktail Classic is the stuff dreams are made of for a cocktailphile like myself.

Coffee 101 with Batdorf & Bronson and Atlanta Culinary Tours

On what grounds?!

With a career in Food and Beverage management, I have enjoyed coffee, purchased coffee equipment, ground, brewed and served coffee. Behind a bar I have made Espresso, Cappuccino and caffeinated cocktails.

Venture Into the Heart of the City for Downtown Restaurant Week

Downtown Restaurant Week is July 21 – 29, 2012.

I know. Unless you’re a tourist, traveling salesman, or work in the Downtown Atlanta area, stopping at one of the many awesome restaurants can be a task in itself. Not knowing where to park and let’s just say the interesting characters you come across on Peachtree Street have been enough to keep me from frequenting the area in search of good eats. But after previewing a few of the many downtown restos last night (amongst a rough and tumble gang of bloggers and media of course), I have a new found intrigue and respect for these sanctuaries amidst the concrete jungle.

Good Beer and Good Times at The 2nd Annual Brookhaven Beer Festival

Reunited and it feels so good…

The organizers for the 2nd Annual Brookhaven Beer Festival really ramped things up this year. In their second romp of bringing ice-cold brew, live music, and good times to the denizens of Brookhaven, there was more space and more beer to accommodate a much larger crowd. Definitely an upgrade from last year’s inaugural melee.
