The 2nd Annual Atlanta Food & Wine Festival

Don’t call it a comeback…

It’s hard to believe that we’re less than a month away from the 2nd Annual Atlanta Food & Wine Festival. The inaugural Atlanta Food & Wine Festival was the ultimate food festival litmus test. After attending several Aspen Food & Wine Festivals and asking themselves why Atlanta didn’t have its own, festival founders Dominique Love and Elizabeth Feichter were faced with the daunting task of creating a culinary event that would showcase and celebrate the food and beverage traditions of the South.

Corner Tavern West Midtown’s New Menu

New gourmet-inspired menu options…from a dive bar?

We’re always a little skeptical when our favorite local watering holes diverge from their usual menu offerings. With regular patrons keeping the lights on and the seats filled, it can be a pretty ballsy move to change items they’ve come to know and love. But Corner Tavern owners Mike and Melanie Rabb don’t seem to have this hang up. Variety is the spice of life, and they’ve taken this mantra full steam ahead when they let the West Midtown Chef Cameron Lukkar run wild with the restaurant’s new menu.

Clucker rhymes with….

Leave it to one of my favorite New Yorkers in Atlanta, Ron “The Angry Chef” Eyester, to stir up a battle over the best fried chicken in Atlanta. But there is a good purpose, and that is uniting Atlantans in the singular mission of celebrating this Southern staple with the first local festival dedicated to fried chicken – the Mother Clucker Fried Chicken Festival. On Saturday, March 31 from 2 – 6 p.m. Atlanta’s best chefs will fire up the fryers and present their best breaded work in a tented lot next to Rosebud in Morningside. Participating chefs will be encouraged to work with any part of the chicken and challenged to produce their own unique interpretation of fried chicken.

Goin’ Coastal Sunset Cruise

Set sail on the high seas…of Lake Lanier.

Ahoy there matey! What could be better than a relaxing day at the lake with your closest friends? The gang at Goin’ Coastal in VaHi seek to answer that question with said day at the lake accompanied by a low country boil with shrimp the size of cats, andouille sausage, and potatoes. Well maybe not the size of cats, but the shrimp are pretty huge. Oh, and if that didn’t get your attention, did we also mention that this is all going down on a boat with unlimited beer and wine?

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”

Ah, who doesn’t love a Clint Eastwood quote? And, hey, he’s part Irish too. And, if he lived in Atlanta, I’m certain he’d be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by eating Irish food and guzzling many, many beers in one of the numerous restaurants and pubs in Atlanta. Read on to see why…
