DISTILLERY OF MODERN ART PRESENTS THE GOLEM: STORMS OF THE SOUTH

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 12/13/22

A One-Night Only Immersive Theater Experience Featuring Cocktails, Bites, and More 

Thursday, December 22, 2022 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. 


Distillery of Modern Art, an amalgamation of distillery, gallery, event space and cocktail lounge, presents The Golem: Storms of the South, an immersive theater experience on Thursday, December 22, 2022 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. For one evening only, guests can take a journey into a 19th-century New York marketplace where Jewish immigrants are busy selling their wares on the last day of Hanukkah. Incredible real-life stories will be revealed of how they escaped the Storms of the South, ten years of persecution in Western Russia, and discovered freedom upon reaching American, but brought with them something they could never have imagined – tormented and tortured ghosts of the villagers’ past. The audience will then join Rabbi Bezalel as he summons up a Golem, a Frankenstein-like creature, to rid the village of its demons, but nothing goes as planned. 

“The Golem: Storms of the South is essentially a story of love and forgiveness. In order to move forward from dark times in their life, the villagers must forgive themselves, and their past,” says creator Louis Kyper of The Immersive Theatre Ensemble. “They must then let the light of love guide their way forward. No amount of artificially conjured technologies will help them understand that. It’s a simple story, but one worth telling.” 

In addition to the intimate show, guests are also invited to sip on Distillery of Modern Arts’ signature cocktails and enjoy appetizers from The General Muir, a modern American restaurant inspired by the classic New York Jewish Deli. General Admission tickets are $75 per person and include one drink ticket, post-show appetizers, and a custom Golem rocks glass. The VIP Experience is $250 for two tickets and includes private pre-show entertainment, pre-show appetizers, a post-show celebration, enhanced performer interaction, two drink tickets, a collectible bottle of Distillery of Modern Art’s Atlanta Vodka, and two Golem rocks glasses. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit  https://distilleryofmodernart.com.

DISTILLERY OF MODERN ART SET TO OPEN IN CHAMBLEE, FALL 2021

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 9/29/21

The Full Sensory Experience will feature a Distillery, a Modern Art Gallery, Bar Area, ‘Living Wall’ Garden, and a 2800sq. ft. Event Space
 
Seven Distinct Spirits to include Atlanta Vodka, Peach Flavored Vodka, Bourbon Whiskey, Corn Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Nouveau Gin, and Digestivo
Built on a foundation of experiences, Distillery of Modern Art, a new concept coming this fall to Chamblee, GA, is an amalgamation of distillery, gallery, event space, covered patio, ‘living wall’ with fresh grown herbs, and cocktail lounge. Guest are invited to immerse themselves in this purpose-driven concept which showcases art in all its many forms and challenges them to leave their perceptions at the door. Going beyond what’s in the bottle, the 15,000 square foot space is a modern art gallery whose walls feature local artists and installations- several of which are utilized for DoMA’s bottle art. Moving into the bar area, this is where the spirits come alive as master mixologists create signature cocktails using one of the house-created spirits, often pulling garnishes from the ‘living wall’ garden adjacent to the lounge. And while DoMA provides the setting and experiences for its guests, it also includes a 2800 square foot private event space to allow you to create your own unique experience. In short, Distillery of Modern Art is an accessible meeting of both art and spirit.
True to its name, this is a distillery, and that warrants putting the spotlight the seven distinct spirits. Shaped by an adept team of innovators, each is a graced missive for connoisseurs everywhere. Atlanta Vodka, Peach Flavored Vodka- made with Georgia-grown peaches, Bourbon Whiskey, Corn Whiskey, Rye Whiskey, Nouveau Gin, and an easy-drinking Digestivo have all been developed over the past few years with perfection in mind. With the vision of making the creatively impossible possible, DoMA boasts a backdrop of artistic expression with support from emerging artists in the community. Creators already secured include Xie Caomi, Juliana Lupacchino, and Josh Jalbert, who showcase their designs on the in-house Rye Whiskey, Corn Whiskey, and Atlanta Vodka bottles, respectively.
“I am an instigator. I live to inspire those around me.” says Distillery of Modern Art founder Seth Watson. “I want to facilitate creativity in all possible ways. I like to be a dreamer but what I like more is allowing dreamers to bring ideas to reality.”
Finally, on the top shelf are the Tour & Tasting bookings that run daily from noon to 3 p.m. For only $15 per guest, groups of 10 or less can relish signature-crafted cocktails while absorbing the history of DoMA and the Chamblee region. The interactive, step-by-step walkthrough of the distillation process is a riveting activity-friendly for friends, family, and co-workers. For larger parties, guests can take advantage of either the 735-square foot Kandinsky Tasting Room, 861-square foot Watson Gallery, or 2,800-square foot Rothko Room. These contemporary and lofty spaces can complement an array of bustling celebrations.
Distillery of Modern Art is conveniently located at 2197 Irvindale Way, Chamblee, GA 30341, in close proximity to MARTA. For more information or to book an event, visit www.distilleryofmodernart.com or call 404-482-2663.

Fudo: Spicy, Crunchy, Sweet

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 5/19/19

Nestled in a Chamblee live-work community off Peachtree, Fudo has an intimate atmosphere and friendly service. The most amazing thing about Fudo? The number 48. We sat down and counted the number of specialty sushi rolls you can choose from when dining at the restaurant, that number is 48. This is in addition to all the hand or traditional rolls, as well. They have so many combinations, it was so hard to decide on just a few to try. Our waitress helped us pick something that we’re calling: spicy-crunchy-sweet. One spicy, one crunchy, one sweet roll that would round out the meal. Diving in…

We sampled the brussel sprouts appetizer and it is one of the most unique around with a creamy garlic ponzu sauce that’s sweet and spicy along with the crispy, fried sprouts. It was just the right amount of crunch followed by sweetness and spicy. Uniquely delicious.

Of the three rolls we chose, our favorite roll is still the Hunger Games Roll. We had this at the grand opening and couldn’t pass up having it again. It’s the most flavorful roll we’ve found on the menu with a smoky, creamy aioli topped with spicy sriracha and jalapeno that lingers in the back of your throat. No wasabi needed. On top of that, the fish are cut just right and a crunchy asparagus to give it a slight crunch. All around a solid bite that we’re going to get again! Yum.

The other two rolls were delicious as well: Mono and My Idol. Immediately upon trying the mono two things stuck out: the crunch and the wasabi tobiko. The tempura crunch starts off the bite, smooth fish in the middle, then comes the spice of the wasabi tobiko. A great addition on the end to round out the flavor and goes perfectly with the pop of the eggs. My Idol was smoother, sweeter of all the rolls. Very rich and creamy, with the sweetness and crunch of the mango, then the richness of the sauce, as well as the pop of the red and white tobiko. What a great way to fill out a meal with everything from smoky spicy, to crunchy, to sweet and rich.

No matter what you pick, you’ll find something original and new at Fudo. The drinks are on point and have a ton of options for those who don’t prefer raw fish or sushi.  Since Fudo is in our hood, we’ll be heading back soon, shall we meet you there?
