Blues, Barbecue and Some Caviar for Mom

The mother of all weekends.

Some Juicy News in Druid Hills (Sorry)

An aptly named place called Juice Bar just opened in Druid Hills, which means two things: 1) your intake of ginger, kale and various antioxidants is about to go up, and 2) you’ll have to say “antioxidants” a little bit more than you’re used to. You’re a smoothie person now.

Drink Beer. Eat BBQ. Dance a Little.
PICK AND ROLL

Drink Beer. Eat BBQ. Dance a Little.

Some visit Grant Park to spend time with pandas at the zoo. Others for a history lesson at the Cyclorama. You? You go there for two days of eating barbecue, drinking cold beer and listening to live blues on the grass. It’s a new festival thing, if that wasn’t clear.

And Over Here: Another New Festival
BROOK, LINE AND SINKER

And Over Here: Another New Festival

Hi, Brookhaven. Thank you for the new festival with food from the likes of Noche and Olde Blind Dog. Thank you for the beer, wine, live music and demonstrations on how to cure meat and pickle things. Just... thank you.

Sunday
Just a Little Mother’s Day Caviar
MOMS AWAY

Just a Little Mother’s Day Caviar

This Sunday, instead of brunch, wait a few hours and head to Restaurant Eugene for Mother’s Day dinner. There’ll be a one-night-only, five-course menu with a wine pairing option. And another option for tableside caviar service. And that should do until next year.

Two of the Greats Are Getting Together

Later this month, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q and Taqueria del Sol are joining forces for a seated dinner. Expect passed small things, cocktails and anything from whole hog trimmings to peach natilla with cinnamon crispas. And for it to sell out. Blame it on the crispas.
