It’s time to eat, drink, and be merry!
I appreciate you bearing with my hiatus of posts. I hit up Baltimore to see my people and indulge in a ridiculous amount of the real deal Maryland crab cakes—my absolute favorite thing to eat—along with great suds for the past few days.
Well I am back in Atlanta and preparing to hit you, my cherished readers, with an awesome roster of happenings, my annual Last-Minute Gift Guide, the best beers to buy for the season, and numerous other entertaining festivities for the holidays.
First up, Holeman and Finch Public House is hosting a celebratory beer dinner with one of the best breweries on this side of the Mississippi—Three Taverns—this Sunday, December 7th, at 7:30 pm. They will be pouring an astounding seven brews including the extra gangster Heavy Bells and Feest Noel to pair with five courses flaunting Chef Linton Hopkins’ renowned culinary mastery for a mere $70 (inclusive).
Holeman and Finch Beverage Director Dan Bollinger arranged the dinner and he knows his brews, so I am definitely in the building! Why don’t ya join me? To purchase tickets, hit up bit.ly/1xAbGai. Here is the menu to further entice you:
