Wednesday, October 21st at 5:30pm

Location: Bocado

On Wednesday, October 21st, BOCADO restaurant on Atlanta’s Westside is celebrating their SIXTH anniversary! In addition to their regular menu, BOCADO will be offering the following for dinner, starting at 5:30pm:
  • Half off their much-acclaimed double-stack burger. The BOCADO favorite is served with American cheese, housemade bread & butter pickles, and fries.
  • Fernet Branca milkshakes. Made with Fernet Branca, bitters, and vanilla ice cream and topped with whipped cream, mint and a cherry. This velvety, creamy beverage is the perfect nightcap with flavors of mint, vanilla, and chocolate.
  • Bell’s Hopslam Ale. BOCADO is pouring this very limited Pacific Northwest beer with six different hop varietals and a blend of grapefruit, stone fruit, and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.
BOCADO restaurant serves contemporary, eclectic American cuisine on a rotating seasonal menu, paired with playful, classic cocktails, as well as craft beer and wine. Spanish for “bite” or “mouthful,” BOCADO was opened on Atlanta’s Westside in 2009 by restaurateur Brian Lewis. The seasonal and locally sourced menu changes frequently, with dinner featuring small, experimental plates and larger entrees, and lunch including creative sandwiches and sides. BOCADO’s much-acclaimed double-stack burger is a favorite and is served with American cheese, housemade B&B pickles, and fries. Housed in a former woodworking shop, the restaurant’s minimalist aesthetic highlights the simplicity and freshness of the food. In 2010, BOCADO was named to Atlanta Magazine’s list of “Best New Restaurants,” and in 2012, Brian was named by StarChefs as a “Rising Star Restaurateur.”

It has since hosted some of Atlanta’s best restaurants, bars, and shops in addition to continuously showcasing design potential in Atlanta.

Location: Turner Field

It’s the best baseball memory you have: the crack of the bat, the crowd clapping and jumping, a familiar tune playing on the loud speakers. That’s what it feels like when you visit Turner Field: you’re favorite baseball memory, even if there isn’t any baseball being played at all. We’re back at the Great Atlanta Beer Fest like a beer fest with the atmosphere of a baseball game. It’s always a good time, despite the sprinkles in the air. Let’s jump into this year’s festival…

My favorite part of the fall is the influx of pumpkin and pumpkin beers, unfortunately there weren’t many to choose from at the beer fest. Most people said they brought what their distributors want them to bring regardless of season. Strike one for the distributors as variety is the spice of life, and all IPCP24nS3WEAA8YX7As isn’t something that excites me. I’m a dark beer/porter/sour kind of girl. But for the porters there was the Jekyll Smoked Porter, which is always a good, local porter full of malt and almost chocolatey. There was also and Starr Hill’s Pumpkin Porter, Boxcarr. It’s dark and strong with actual pumpkin added to the mash to make the right amount of pumpkin to porter. It was a little nutmeggy (yep, I like to make up words) on the end but overall pretty good.

One of the highlights beyond the beer, was that Southern Sky Brewing, and up and coming brewery had one of their first beer fest outings and they brought their Worlds Apart Ale. They say it’s a hybrid ale with a mix of Belgium white and an Irish red. That’s pretty spot on with a light beginning and ale end. It’s versatile beer that you can drink all year round. What I’m really looking forward to is the Schwarzchild Porter that Near told me drinks more like a stout. Sign me up!

The weather was rainy, misty and gloomy but the beers and the atmosphere made it all worth the day at Turner Field. Next year, maybe we’ll get a beautiful 70 degree day with all porters, stouts and pumpkin beers. Wouldn’t that be awesome? A girl can dream, can’t she? Now go and enjoy your favorite beer and look forward to the next beer fest! There’s always Boos and Brews on Halloween and several others each weekend until then.

Location: Candler Park


By Liz and John Attaway

With billowing clouds and small spurts of sunshine, there was the distinct smell of fresh cut grass in the air surrounding the lush Candler Park. Atlanta’s first annual Cork Puller’s Beer, Wine, and Spirits Fest got underway with a trifecta, holy trinity of drink choices: beer, wine and liquor. The crowd wIMG_7719as decent but we never felt like we waited too long for a drink and plenty of space to sit and watch the bands. Here are the highlights of this year’s Cork Pullers.

What would an almost fall festival be without the emergence of the year’s porters, Oktoberfests, and pumpkin ales? The best beer I hadn’t tried at the festival was the Misdemeanor Porter by Jailhouse. It was smooth and malty but not too heavy for a good drinking beer any time of year. Someday, we’ll make it to Hampton to visit them. I’ll come right out and say it, I’m not a huge Sierra Nevada fan. Too. Many. Hops. To my surprise Sierra Nevada has come out with an OctoberFest that is slightly heavier and not too hoppy. I enjoyed this one! Terrapin had just tapped their PumpkinFest the night before so there was plenty to go around at Cork Pullers. Finally, always a delight are some of my favorite Atlanta beers from Monday Night with their Drafty Kilt, and Orpheus’ Atalanta Plum Saison. Too bad the tents weren’t next to each other and I just would have thrown down a chair and hung there.IMG_7717

The other big player was the wine. There were two good whites that I really enjoyed: The D’Arenberg The Broken Fishplate Sauvignon Blanc and Columbian Crest Unoaked Chardonnay out of Washington State. The Sav Blanc was a smoother, crisper wine without the traditional over the top grapefruit nose. I enjoyed that. The chardonnay was very smooth with a hint of butter at the end. It was good for a hot summer day. There was also liquor, but I’m not a big liquor person so I stuck to beer and wine. Even though I’m not big on it, the festival goers sure would as the lines for both Jack Daniels and American Born Moonshine were pretty much the longest lines at the festival. They must have had something good.

I have to take a moment here to throw kudos out to Cork Pullers for having the BEST water station we’ve ever seen at a beer festival. Everyone was impressed! Everyone needs to hydrate in the heat, so this was genius. GENIUS, I say! So that’ll about do it for this fun new festival. Until next year…

It hits you when you walk in the private doors, Burn Social Club is one part Frank Sinatra, one part cocktail bar, and one part dinner destination. At Burn, cocktails are hand crafted, food is upscale, and the entertainment was lively and enjoyable. Burn’s décor starts with a dance floor front and center with high top  tables surrounding it so you can dance and be social. They’ve incorporated a lounge area with lower tables and couches for staying a while. The lighting is unique with a faux flame mixed with smooth candlelight and chandeliers.

When it comes to the food there is a wide variety of things to test: sushi, flat breads, main entrees that include lobster and beef tendeIMG_7644rloin, and don’t forget the dessert that includes a huge piece of chocolate cake. I tried the Super Crunch roll that was stuffed with crispy tempura wrapped in seaweed and rice covered with smoked salmon and sesame-garlic sauce. The crunchies were savory with a smooth fried taste. The salmon was delicious! It was grilled with a slight smoke and very tender. The size of the roll was just enough to eat one all by yourself, just how I like it. Finally, it paired very well with the Burning Mule chocked full of ginger beer. John skipped right to dessert and tried the Big Fat Chocolate Cake. I was decadent and divine with light and fluffy, mild chocolate cake, while the icing was a little richer than the cake. The chocolate drizzle was rich, dark chocolate that set off all the other flavors. Please do yourself a favor and get this!

Handcrafted cocktails are the cornerstone of the drink menu at Burn. They have all types of bourbons, vodka drinks, and high-end cocktails with tons of flavor. I got the Burning Mule, which is Burn’s spin on the typical mule. Mixing ginger-honey, fresh lime, vodka, organic ginger beer and a candied ginger garnish, it was the riIMG_7649ght amount of ginger up front and smooths out with the honey on the end. I’m not a huge ginger eater, so this wasn’t overpowering and I’d recommend it to anyone who loves their mules. It’s an interesting take! I also tried the Mary Pickford. It’s like a beautiful day at the beach with the sun shining and the sea rolling up to just get the ends of your toes. It’s one of those drinks that you could have a few of while reading your favorite book and gazing at the ocean with pineapple and cherry flavors. Take a minute to transport to the beach!

With the food, drink, and entertainment all in sync, Burn Social Club will be a place you could stay all night. Grab a drink, have dinner, dance the night away! Burn Social Club is located at Andrews Entertainment District. 56 E Andrews Dr NW, Atlanta, Ga 30305. Entrance is through Czar Ice Bar. See you there!
