We were taking the toddler to an excellent play fort, and made quite a huge detour in order to try a new bakery in town. It was absolutely worth the extra miles.
A change of pace in today’s chapter, in which I share some musical history at length in order to set up a story about a wonderful happy memory from my college days.
This restaurant is an icon, y’all. Sometimes the prices seem a little high, and sometimes Dexter’s in a grouchy mood, but everybody on the planet should have lunch here at least once.
We took the toddler to rampage at a gigantic play fort in Alpharetta, and found a really great lunch a few miles north of town.
Marie was supposed to visit this veteran Sandy Springs getaway for a media event, but then an ice storm hit. Twice. Maybe the third time would be the charm?
I’ve written a post for somebody else’s blog. It is an excellent post and I’d like for you to go read it.
Nobody enjoys meat quite like the crew who put together Meat Week. This year, the newest restaurant to host the group’s shenanigans proved themselves quite ready for the chaos with some truly awesome barbecue.
We celebrated the end of that first big ice storm that hit Atlanta by going out for a meal that we did not really enjoy all that much.
I had hoped to sample one new barbecue place on our trip, but we had to wait until we were back in the Peach State to try one. Here’s a recently-opened joint that serves one of our favorite northeast Georgia specialties, and, unlike many places we wanted to stop on this trip, is open for sensible Saturday dinner hours.
We recently enjoyed visiting with several of our blogger friends at this popular five year-old taco joint just north of the perimeter. The music made conversation just a little difficult, but the food was quite good all the same.
We were invited to join quite a few media friends for a night at this midtown institution to sample their very surprising new menu. This place was iconic twenty years ago, and they’re ready to shine again.
We found another contender for my favorite Chinese restaurant in the Atlanta area. I’m not quite as mad about it as I am Gu’s in Doraville, but Hong Kong BBQ, a little stand in this no-frills place, is quietly serving up some excellent food.
There’s just a little buzz going about these really good burgers being sold in a decrepit strip mall space at the intersection of Collier and Defoors Ferry. This buzz should get a lot louder.
We revisited the original location of this small Atlanta chain – three stores, plus one that broke off and went independent – to find that it is still packing in crowds and suggesting neat little recipes for their DIY stir-fry.
