Stop. Collaborate and listen…

Question. What does a Russian Vodka Bar and a Japanese Sushi Restaurant have in common with each other? Absolutely nothing! And we’re ok with that. EDR contributor Gregg Jarahian takes you through an evening of masterfully created sushi offerings and brief sampling of the 300+ vodkas on hand at the Buckhead restaurant and bar, Czar Ice Bar.


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.

Chefs Joe Truex & Julia LeRoy introduce new lunch menu.

I was excited to see one of my favorite Decatur restos get reincarnated and all brand-spankin new at The Brookwood on Peachtree. Not only did they keep alive their famous Fried Chicken Night (now on Wednesdays), but they revamped the menu for lunch and dinner by introducing new Southern-inspired farm-to-table cuisine focusing on local sustainable ingredients and seasonal flavors.


Food Trucks Roll Into Piedmont Park for the Atlanta Street Food Festival

Everybody! Everybody! Get’cha roll on!

Over the past year, the Atlanta food truck scene has had its hurdles. Wrought with permit issues, parking violations, and simply finding a conducive area to sell their back seat treats has been a daunting task. But never count out the little guy.


Cinco de Mayo Margarita-Inspired Cocktails

Not a fan of tequila? Try these alternatives.

With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, you can guarantee that party hosts will be blocking up the aisles at Tower in search of copious amounts of Patron, Jose Cuervo, and Avion tequila to celebrate the festivities. Did you know that more tequila is consumed on Cinco de Mayo than any other day throughout the year? That’s A LOT of agave. But what if you’re aren’t a fan of tequila?


‘Midnight In Paris’ Comes to Atlanta with Boucherie Dinners at BLT Steak

Meat Week Series Continues April 22-28 with ‘Beef Week’

“What is it with this city? I need to write a letter to the Chamber of Commerce.” – Gil Pender in Midnight in Paris

I first learned of “The Meat Week Boucherie Dinner” series when it launched back in February with ‘Wild Game Week’. It turns out, this was a returning series of four-course dinners featuring whole-animal cookery.  Intrigued, I waited for the launch of ‘Veal Week’ in late March to see what it was all about. Plus, any excuse for me to enjoy BLT’s famed popovers is always a good idea.


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.


Van Gogh Vodka Give A Damn Martini

Frankly Scarlet…we give a damn.

As a part of their Cocktails Without Prejudice Campaign, Van Gogh Vodka is proud to introduce the Give a Damn Martini. The campaign, in conjunction with Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund, was launched in 2010 to inspire straight people to “give a damn” about LGBT equality.


12th Annual BaconFest

Bacon strips & bacon strips & bacon strips…

In its 12th year, BaconFest has become an Atlanta institution celebrating all things bacon with proceeds benefiting improv outfit Dad’s Garage. The event is now even larger with more music, more entertainment, and yes, more bacon-y goodness.
