Van Gogh Cool Peach Vodka

Get a jump on peach season…in liquid form.

I don’t know about you, but I really wish this weather would figure out what it wants to do. Is it winter? Is it spring? This level of inconsistency is really throwing a kink into my already pressed drinking regimen. And although I’m one of those people who enjoy drinking seasonally, an occasional break from winter beers and stiff whiskey is sometimes a welcome change.

Atlanta’s adult carnival descends upon Atlantic Station.

Imagine the carnival from your childhood. Bright lights, whimsical music, and midway games galore. Creepy carnies downing shots of booze between shifts to take the pain away. I digress.

Returning for its third year on February 11, 2012, the Winter Beer Carnival stretches its legs at a new larger location at Atlantic Station for even more great beer, carnival games, food, and good times.

Cardamom Hill

An underground supper club steps into the spotlight…

You may remember Chef Asha Gomez from the wildly popular Spice Route Supper Club series, an underground supper club that introduced patrons to the fresh and vibrant cuisine of her native Kerala. The exclusive monthly dinners sold out quickly featuring several courses of enriched regional cuisine. These dishes, although steeped in tradition, were served with modern flare and told the story of Chef Gomez’s unique multi-faceted heritage. In a little over a year, Chef Gomez has taken the concept into her first brick and mortar location, Cardamom Hill.

Quite the undertaking, but with their ever-increasing popularity, the need for more space to increase production became a necessity. Fast forward to November 2011. Just a short five months after cranes and bulldozers leveled the adjacent parking lot and corrugated metal building, a new Sweetwater Brewing Company stands in its place.

Check the neck…

In preparation of pear season, the Pear Bureau Northwest/USA Pears embarked on an eight-city tour to increase awareness around the oblong fruit.

Eat St. Comes to Atlanta

Atlanta Food Truck scene…it’s time for your close up.

The Atlanta food truck scene has been piping hot for a minute now…this we know. Every week these food trucks descend upon bustling Atlanta neighborhoods to treat the public to their own brand of specialty fare. Menu items that are not only quick and hearty, but are also served out the back of a truck. Classy, right? So we couldn’t have been more happy to find out that the Food Network show Eat St. was putting down stakes in Atlanta for a 5-day stop to feature some of our city’s favorite food trucks.
