Jazz Thursdays at Fandangle’s

I jump at every chance I get to let a saxophone drift me away. There’s just something about it. It’s smooth, emotive… if it’s the right slow tune, my mind transports me to a rainy, star-strewn street in Paris, walking along a cobblestone bridge at night, sneaking kisses with my beau under an enormous umbrella, […]

Shake Shack is Giving Me All the Feels

Just looking at this picture, I’m melting almost as much as that house-made creamy cheese sauce atop those fries: I just going to go ahead and say that I am unable to not demolish this in 3.4 seconds. Girlish figure be damned, there are times when a juicy burger, a whole slew of cheese fries, […]

LottaFrutta is Ripe & Fresh

Let me tell you about a flavorful secret tucked away in Old Fourth Ward neighborhood… OK, maybe it’s not much of a secret anymore. It’s been around for years now, but if you’re like me and have driven past it a trillion times but have yet to go in, the time has come. I have […]

Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Co.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, I recommend you taste the treats at Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Co in Virginia-Highland. You’ll find delectable chocolate and sweets that are handmade and sustainably produced, bean to bar: Every. Last. Morsel. I especially loved these bad boys right here: These are hand-painted dark chocolate hollow eggs with elements of pistachio, ginger, almond, and dried cherries in […]

Dancing Goats Coffee Bar

I think I’ve found my new in-town chill spot. Not only does the cleverly-named Dancing Goats Coffee Bar serve local coffee and tasty snacks, it’s also part of the new and pretty fabulous Ponce City Market. Best of all, Dancing Goats has a large, inviting patio space that is perfect to relax in. When I popped in the other day, the […]

Chicken & Waffles at the Atlanta Food Truck Park

I recently stopped by the Atlanta Food Truck Park again, and I seriously need to go more often. This place has such a friendly, welcoming vibe, and I’m always torn between at least three food choices. The food truck park is located at 1850 Howell Mill Rd, Atlanta, and since I’ve already written about this place in […]

Indian Dinner with The Learning Tea

I’d like to tell you about a cool fundraising dinner called A Taste of India, hosted by The Learning Tea. Located at Dr. Bombay’s Bakery, Restaurant, & Tea House in Candler Park neighborhood, this three-course vegetarian Indian dinner costs $20 and is hosted on the last Monday of every month, with 100% of the proceeds directly funding […]

$20 Maine Lobsters at Goin’ Coastal

This is the post where I tell you about a great deal on delicious food. If you haven’t been to Goin’ Coastal in Virginia-Highland neighborhood, it would be very shellfish of me not to highly recommend it! After all, they lavished me with an absolutely scrumptious, sustainably-harvested seafood meal… for only $20. That’s right, on […]

The Georgia Craft Beer Festival

The Georgia Craft Beer Festival celebrated its second installment on Saturday, October 25th at Candler Park, featuring an afternoon of arts, live entertainment, food selections from some of the city’s top food trucks and over 100 craft beers to sample from 30 breweries all over the state. Guests enjoyed the beautiful weather in Atlanta with […]

Apple Picking in North Georgia

Apple crisp is one of my favorite things to eat. The way the pastry and the apples and the cinnamon and sugar melt together just gives me fireworks like Ratatouille experienced in that movie… So, since apple season is upon us (yay!) and this blog is all about getting out there and exploring, I decided […]

Fresh Plates at Atlanta Botanical Garden

This post actually took place in July, but between then and now, I didn’t have a moment to pull all my pics together and get it posted. Without further ado… I met up with some friends to spend a gorgeous summer evening at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens for the Fresh Plates cooking demonstration series. This […]

Atlanta Food Truck Park

Food trucks are so in right now, they’re practically out. Indeed, food trucks have popped up all over the city, and with good reason: they’re artisanal, sell tasty food, are hella convenient, and carry a unique city vibe. Kind of like grabbing a meal to go at a New York City hotdog stand. There’s a […]
