BaconFestAttention bacon lovers.  The bacon mothership has landed and there are still tickets available for you to board.  BaconFest, Atlanta’s outdoor festival to honor the 3 B’s, beer, bands and bacon, is this Saturday, March 30 at Dad’s Garage Theatre Company!

So what does one do at BaconFest you might ask.  Well, according to the event’s webpage, starting at 1:00pm and continuing until 6:00pm, attendees will enjoy four local bands, hilarious carnival games and “troughs upon troughs of cold beer and sizzlin’ bacon.”  The event is a fundraiser for Dad’s Garage Theatre Company, so even if bacon isn’t your cup of tea, you can still come and enjoy a great time.  Specifically, the improv professionals from Dad’s Garage will be hosting several ridiculous events including a drunken spelling bee and the crowning of the Bacon King and Queen that are sure to entertain bacon lovers and veggie lovers alike.

Announcing Bone Lick BBQ’s Sunday Gospel Brunch!

Bone Lick Gospel BrunchThis morning I came across a Facebook post from Bone Lick BBQ about the success of their first Sunday Gospel Brunch!   Gospel brunch?   How did I not know about this?  Immediately my thoughts jumped to my time living in New Orleans and attending similar fun and tasty events at the House of Blues.

Bone Lick BBQ will now be hosting a Gospel Brunch every Sunday from 11am-4pm.   There’s even a specific brunch menu reflective of Bone Lick’s unique style.   Highlights include Smokin’ Shrimp n’ Grits, Sambo’s Collard Green Quiche and Smoked Beef Hash made with brisket!  Your meal will be accompanied by classic and country gospel tunes to nourish your body and soul.   Wash down the pulled BBQ chicken frittata with bottomless mimosas or a Bloody Mary and you’ll be singing hallelujah in no time!

Drop in next Sunday or call to make a reservation – 404-343-6574.

Bone Lick BBQ is located at 1133 Huff Rd. in Apex West Midtown.
