Taste of Atlanta This Weekend!
Hello one and all. Steakhead is back from a week on Hilton Head Island completely rejuvenated. What a week- sun, golf, seafood, and with the Mets sweeping the Dodgers in their NLDS series on the same day as the Yankees were eliminated, well, it just doesn't get any better!
But now I am back, and its a good week to be Steakhead. My aforementioned Mets open their NLCS series against the Cards on Wednesday, the NY Football Giants make their first visit to the GA Dome in 5 years on Sunday and the Taste of Atlanta festival takes place this weekend! The festival actually opens with Culinaire- a $150 per plate extravaganza featuring 10 of the best chefs in Atlanta, open bar and live entertainment. The event takes place Tuesday night at the Lobby at Twelve. Steakhead will be one of the esteemed members of the press at this event, so I look to give you a first-hand account on Wednesday morning.
The main festival- just a tad less decadcent- takes place Saturday and Sunday from 11am - 6pm at Atlantic Station with tickets going for $15 in advance and $25 at the door. There will be more than 70 restaurants represented at this year's festival, with samples, cooking demonstrations, wine classes and more.
