Firebirds Wood Fired Grill: A VIP Tasting & A Chat With Chef Donte Youmans

From judging food festivals to interviewing food makers to working with cool chefs, and experiencing new food and restaurant openings I love the world of food that I’ve been exploring. So when I was invited to a special media/food blogger VIP tasting at the Peachtree Corners‘ opening of Firebirds Wood Fired Grill I should have been over the top excited to attend. However, it was a rainy, raw night and in all honesty I was tempted not...

Whiskies of the World Atlanta Adventures

For bourbon, scotch and rye fans, stepping into  Whiskies of the World aka WOW is an adventure. It’s like opening the door to a grown-up Hansel & Gretel cottage with no bad witch! But instead of candy there are hundreds of amazing dark spirits to taste. A nice plus is the event is a fund raiser for North Atlanta Rotary Foundation. This year there were spirits from 9 countries: USA, Scotland, Ireland, India, Japan, Taiwan,...

When I received an invitation from Table Top Media Group to experience a blogger’s tasting meal at...

Give Me Five for No Kid Hungry

I walked into the party.… As I walked into the posh Atlanta Athletic Club the words from Carly Simon’s song You’re So Vain played in my head which was odd because the party, Give Me Five, was a charity event for a well deserving campaign* No Kid Hungry. I am sure the people attending were not “so vain.” But still you know when a song gets stuck in your head… However, the lyrics that did make sense...
