If you look at a calendar, that is.
But if you look at this place instead, it’s just getting started...
Grab like a million napkins for The Greater Good BBQ, a shoebox-sized new meat-and-two joint sporting a to-go counter, an umbrella-clad patio and pre-Chastain-concert picnic baskets, now open on the northern edge of Buckhead.
You’ll find it next to Fellini’s on Roswell. Which makes sense because it’s partly owned by the Fellini’s/La Fonda guys. It’ll be the place that looks like an indoor picnic, what with all the clothespin lines for ticket orders and red-and-white-checkered tablecloths everywhere.
Sneak over there right about now-ish. Notice the disclaimer on the door, which starts off: “Let’s be honest... sometimes we run out of meat.” That’s a good thing. It means they smoke everything in-house daily. So open that door. Smell the smoked wings and brisket chili. Eat the smoked wings and brisket chili.
And if you’re going to see Lionel Richie at Chastain next week, firstly: congratulations. Secondly: if you bring them a picnic basket the day before, they’ll pack it up with pork sliders, rib tacos and a tablecloth.
Guess you’ll have to get a picnic basket now.
