FLIP, Tavernpointe, Cypress Street, Holeman and Finch, and others keep our mouths in bliss to end out August!

I'm Baaaaaack!

Just getting back from Green Bay (check out my Instagram featuring 18 posts straight from “Titletown”), I am welcomed by my hometown’s awesome beer, spirit and food events lined up to end out the blazing month of August. Check out what Atlanta has in store!

Lobster Night doubles up at FLIP Burger Boutique!
It is now on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting August 24th!

I had a blast at FLIP Burger Boutique’s very first Wednesday in Buckhead a few weeks ago and left content after indulging in a whole lobster paired with a Tropic├ília! It was the best $19.99 I have spent in a while for an entree, trust! Well it looks like it’s on Saturdays too! Word! Go here for all the details. The official, mother-watering flyer is below.
