venkmans blt hhWhen the weather turns warmer, and the flowers bloom, festivals pop-up and fill our weekends with food, something usually fried, and local art and music. As the years go on, it seems like more festivals flood our city, which isn’t a bad thing! With more to do, it’s nice to have a go-to, tried-and-true, festival that never disappoints, that’s Hogs and Hops. This year, we enjoyed a BLT, beers, and of course, a big couple pieces of brisket.

Starting with our favorite foods, there was a lot to choose from so it was a hard decision. First, Venkman’s BLT was divine with pork belly, bacon jam, and slaw all on a bun. The pork belly was very meaty with a slight smoke while the bacon jam added to the savor. Then, when you add in sweet slaw and a sweeter bun and there is a mix of sweet and salty. I’ve never had a BLT that was pork belly centered, but it was worth it. We also loved DBA Barbecue’s brisket. First off, it is one large piece of meat, with a good rich brisket flavor. It was slightly smoky, but fall off the bone tender, with a delicious caramelized skin. We also heard that the Mac The Cheese’s mac-n-cheese with pimento cheese and pork was so good, it was the best thing they ever put in their mouth. One thing was for sure, the food at Hogs and Hops this year was top notch, like always.

DBA BBQ HHLet’s not forget about the Hops part of Hogs and Hops. This year Hogs and Hops went undercover and was one heck of a beer festival underneath that Hogs exterior. They had so many local brews, which is all the rage and really want the people want right now. There were also a few new breweries that just came on the Atlanta brewery scene, Dry County to name one. Some of our favorite beers were also on tap: including Monday Night’s Drafty Kilt, their Cinnamon Cocoa Drafty Kilt, and IPA, as well as Reformation Stark and Red Hare’s Sticky Stout. One beer that we hadn’t had yet was Blue Tarp’s Last Place Imperial Stout. It was slightly smoky with a smooth finish, as well as had dark chocolate and coffee notes. We enjoyed it!

Enjoying some pork, sipping on a beer is one of the best ways to spend a beautiful spring day. We’re looking forward to our next Atlanta Beer Festivals event, Atlanta Summer Beer Fest in June. Bummed you missed Hogs and Hops? Here’s a link to Atlanta Beer Festival’s list of upcoming events:  Until then, enjoy the spring weather and we’ll see you next time!

The Grove is Complete with a Vintage Camper Transformed

into an Outdoor Bar, Seating for 120, Ping Pong Table, Bocce Court, & More


For Immediate Release—Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall—the Atlanta, Beltline-adjacent restaurant and bar serving campfire-inspired cuisine—has expanded to include a more than 4000-square-foot outdoor “grove” with a bar that will officially open this weekend. The Grove’s outdoor bar is located inside a vintage, two-tone, painted camper with a wood-stained interior. It will offer a separate beverage menu from the restaurant inside.


The curated drink list served from the camper will feature rotating punches and camper-specific cocktails, draft beer, canned beer and wine. Ladybird’s full food and drinks menu will continue to be offered throughout the rest of the restaurant.


With the addition of the Grove, Ladybird’s outdoor seating has more than doubled. Hangout-friendly Adirondack chairs are arranged in clusters near an outdoor smoker. A separate section houses communal, beer garden-style tables. The dog-friendly space is just inches from the Beltline, welcoming passersby and serving as a spot to wile away the afternoon. An abundance of bike racks are available for guests arriving on two wheels. Strands of string lights illuminate Ping-Pong tables for nighttime games, and live musical performances will be a regular weekend feature.


“The Grove” has been part of owner Michael Lennox’s vision for the restaurant since opening in 2014, and it serves as a natural extension of the existing space and patio. The design further crystallizes Ladybird’s lodge-like aesthetic, which takes cues from national parks, camping, and westward travels.


Located on the Atlanta Beltline’s 9.25 mile marker, Ladybird was the first outdoor-oriented restaurant to open on the acclaimed Eastside Trail. The Beltline is a former 22-mile industrial rail corridor that has recently been transformed into a popular and extensive city loop, with bike paths, walking trails, public art exhibitions, and more.



Opened in 2014, Ladybird is located in Atlanta’s historic Old Fourth Ward neighborhood at 684 John Wesley Dobbs Ave. NE. It is the first outdoor-oriented restaurant and bar to open along the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail, at mile marker 9.25. An in-town home away from home for Atlanta’s adventure seekers, Ladybird offers elevated campfire cuisine for dinner, lunch, and weekend brunch, and focuses on sharable dishes that rotate based on local availability. The beverage program features craft cocktails, wine, local beer, alongside housemade juices and sodas. The restaurant has been featured in Southern Living, Garden & Gun, Travel + Leisure, and many more.
