Taste of Atlanta, a new article and a case of the Mondays!

Happy Monday (I guess)!


Lines were down the block for
Gladys' Chicken and Waffles
Please tell me you had the chance to go by Taste of Atlanta during this past weekend??? Thousands of Atlantans flocked this street extravaganza in Midtown to get their grub and drink on. The food was awesome due to more than 70 restaurants flaunting their eclectic menu of specialties, plus there was an enlightening Chocolate Academy I attended hosted by radio personality Tom Sullivan and Taria Camerino from the Highland Bakery who schooled us on the Fair Trade chocolates and what constitutes real chocolate. 


This was my favorite chocolate.
Oh, and drinks, right? The wine got a lot of love, but the beer selection was sick in the VIP tent (thanks to my man Reid Ramsey and Hop City) including two flowing taps of the new Wild Heaven brews, more than a 100 different bottles to choose from, and a Cruisin' For A Brewsin' interview with the Chairman of Innis and Gunn, Tony Hunt, who was pouring his spectacular Rum Cask Finish Oak Aged Beer. Thanking the heavens, the weather was absolutely perfect which made it one of the most beautiful weekends in the A! You better make it imperative to go next year!

Look for the full video of Tony, Reid and your homey Ale talking about Innis soon.
