New Menu Preview at STK Atlanta

We found ourselves in the midst of STK Atlanta's new menu preview for Winter, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Every. Minute. We tried everything from steak to swordfish to tuna, as well as desserts, appetizers, and cool new cocktails. Here are a few of our favorite things. The entrees were really dynamite with a triple threat: swordfish, tuna, and steak. Liz's favorites was Swordfish and John's was the steak. Both stellar. Of the other elements: the beet salad was delicious and the chocolate cake was the overwhelming favorite of the desserts.

The Joy Formidable at Park Tavern

On Sunday, September 6th at Park Tavern. One of our favorite bands right now is the rockin, grunin', and all-out fun band, The Joy Formidable, from Whales. To our delight, they played a free and intimate concert at Park Tavern where we could hear everything from their big hit, Whirring to Cradle to This Ladder Is Ours. If you've never heard them, they have a fresh, electronic sound that mixes grunge and rock elements with some of the best guitar and drums to come out in the new Millenia. The highlight of this detour was, of course, meeting Ritzy, the lead singer of the band! She had a beautiful accent and had some nice things to say about Atlanta. #girlcrush! The other highlight was getting to see our favorite Atlanta band, Today the Moon, Tomorrow The Sun play with one of our favorite rock bands!

DragonCon 2015

Thursday, September 3rd to Monday, September 7th. All-in-all, DragonCon 2015 was a success all the way around. The Highlights by day: opening night there was an Amish group that would yell "knees" when they saw a girl's bare knees. This is something I've never seen at DragonCon. Well, done. Friday was #forcefriday and an AT-AT stormed the Marriott Marquis lobby, not to mention Felicia Day is as darling as she appears to be on TV. Did you know she wrote a book? She's a renaissance woman. On Saturday, the Sleepy Hollow panel didn't disappoint with Tom Mison being called "super hot Jesus" and Nicole Beharie coming in late to the joke.

Atlanta Meatball Festival

That Atlanta Meatball Festival had 20+ restaurants with meaty-meatball tastes. The highlights included Double Zero's porkbelly meatball, which was one of our favorite at the festival, as well as Madre & Mason's Turkey meatball with all the trimmins: gravy and collards. The chef was so nice and made me one without the gravy and it was worth it with tasty corn, poblano peppers and turkey. The Double Zero's porkbelly was so tender and one of those meats you could eat with no sauce or pizzazz. Just a darn good, meatball. There was also a very good lamb meatball by One Flew South that was very spicy but very good. All-in-all very good food overall. Oh, and a special SHOUT OUT to our favorite DJ Madflip for livening up the festivities.

The Frye Company Preview with Farm to Ladle

The Frye Company Preview with Farm to Ladle was August, 6th. You enter The Frye Company and you are greeted with the smell of leather and a piece of leather art hanging from the ceiling. This "chandelier" contains 7,000(!) leather straps with brass rings hanging from suspended iron work. The highlights of The Frye Company are...

Stokeswood 2075 Release with Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun

Friday, June 19th at Terminal West. This June foray into electronic rock madness didn't disappoint. The both brought all the dancey, rocky, indie, electronic-y goodness that you would expect and we loved every minute. The stars won't alight like this again. The cosmos must have parted. It was #Stokesmoon. I'm so glad we got to witness it in all it's glory
