Mardi Gras Brunch - Get a taste of New Orleans and participate in Fat Tuesday celebration in Atlanta during a Saturday brunch in Feburary.
Billy Joel: Scenes from an Italian Restaurant - Tribute dinner exploring music and Italian food
The White Dinner: A Tribute to the Beatles - A dinner celebrating The White Album using ingredients like white asparagus, scallops, and cauliflower. We should be able to get a great cover band for this one!
A Tale of Two Breweries - Dinner with beer pairings from two local breweries, Sweetwater and Terrapin.
Jerry Week - Each year, our most popular dinner is our Jerry Garcia tribute dinner. This past year, we did it two night in a row! In 2010, we are thinking about holding a weeklong celebration for Ron's favorite musician, with a Jerry Brunch, lots of live music, food, and drink!
This is your opportunity to give us your input! What do you think of these ideas? Do you have any ideas for events in 2010?

This week, there is a great review of Rosebud from Creative Loafing's Besha Rodell. We are really pleased with what she had to say about us: "This is the kind of honest American food that too few home cooks still produce, and too few restaurateurs reproduce to fill the void." Check out the rest of the review!

For those that have no idea what Chilaquiles are (like me) - Chilaquiles are a traditional dish often served for breakfast or lunch and thought to be a great hangover cure. Ron described the dish as an abstract Mexican lasagna and Wikipedia told me that is is basically tortillas that are stewed in a traditional sauce and often topped off with eggs or chicken. In our case, we'll be serving Chilaquiles topped with an over-easy egg and garnished with avocado and goat's milk feta cheese.
Come one, come all; just come early because the bar fills up quickly. Tonight, Chilaquiles are $5 in the bar area only for Monday Night's Mystery Meal. Please, no split plates.

The Book House Pub-Great beer list with several flight options which allow you to have a little bit of everything. And I have to say the back patio is one of my favorite little hidden gems in the city. Then once you have had too many high gravity beers you can stumble next door to The Local for cheap bear, foose ball, tater tots and photobooth pictures. Its a good night. I promise.
Whiskey Blue-With spectacular views of the city, two roof top patios, this is the perfect setting for ladies night out. Grab your girls, throw on your cutest party dresses and get ready to dance the night away.
Noni's-I consider this place the "Cheers" for fellow restaurant industry people. Its one of those places where you can feel fight at home. Oh yeah, and if you stick around late enough, your probably in for a killer dance party.
Righteous Room- Because everyone has their local dive that will always hold a special place in their heart. And well, Righteous Room is mine.

Eats - Hey, nothin' beats cheap PBR and turkey meatloaf.
Holeman & Finch - Some of the best cocktails in Atlanta, they really have it down to a science.
Brickstore - Great beer selection and they have all the proper glasses for each one.
Taqueria de Sol - If you know me, you probably know that I LOVE tacos!

My list of restaurants is certainly not very ambitious; but very soulful and mostly kid friendly:
1. Martins (they are mostly in the burbs…They have the best biscuits ever, all homemade and their chicken biscuit was somewhat of an inspiration for the “Big Nasty” – plus this is the place that I started taking my son to when Mommy needed a break and Daddy had the day off from work.
2. The Varsity – Nothing beats a chili cheese dog and an orange drink…Plus the dogs are thin enough for my son to handle.
3. Rusans – I like going to the one on Piedmont after work – The sushi is pretty good, but the place is always rockin’ with drunken amateurs doing sake bombs and the sushi chefs are always smiling, yapping and will usually greet you with a small snack.
4. Georges (North Highland Avenue) – Great, Great burgers…I love sneaking over there between lunch and dinner…Plus they sell a small selection of candy at the cash register – I can always pick up a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup!
5. Caramba – My next door neighbor…They truly exemplify the personality of Morningside, they have embraced me since day one…They have great cheese dip and be sure to ask Momma & Mia for a “didley” when you go in!
6. Kevin Rathbun Steak – I love getting there late, eating with Erv at the bar…Snacking on oysters, a ribeye and their Vermont butter mashed potatoes.
Stay tuned for Meryl, Jeff, Jason and Lizzie's top five restaurants and be sure to share yours with us as well!

I really hate getting on you; but these ridiculous late deliveries are either going to stop or I will be taking my business elsewhere…And as you are well aware, I currently do enough business with a multitude of other vendors who carry all of the same products as XXX. I certainly appreciate the relationship that the two of us have developed; but the level of service that XXX is currently providing is unacceptable. Moreover, the balance of our business relationship is completely one sided. In an effort to get my Thursday delivery earlier, I compromised and sacrificed the luxury of another delivery day to make the situation more appealing and beneficial for XXX…I now put more money on one truck and yet I still get my deliveries whenever the truck feels like getting here, usually mid to late afternoon. Another fantastic part of my relationship with XXX is that instead of focusing on remedying my prolonged delivery problems, XXX opts to continually “bust my balls” on receiving payment…I am so tired of hearing that my account is being “red flagged” because I am few days past my current terms…I would urge you to send word to your XXX executives in their ivory towers that we are currently in a recession and that the past year’s turbulent financial times have not been kind to small business owners. XXX is honestly the only vendor who receives a check from me every week!! Many of my other vendors, some of them small business owners themselves, have afforded me latitude when I’ve needed it. Not XXX, instead, I am often made to feel like a criminal because my account is two or three days overdue. And I can certainly see XXX’s concern…The entire company would probably shut down if they weren’t able to collect my $800. How about this; instead of trying to arrange meetings for me to chat with people and food brokers whose product I would never even consider using or getting me down to a food show to see the latest jalapeno poppers and freeze-dried pre-cooked chemically laced sausages; try having some of the idiots who actually run XXX learn about the economies of scale pertaining to their customers and address the menacing problems that plague these customers each week. Moreover, perhaps XXX should consider shifting its balance of power from their “Nazi Like” credit department and focus more attention on their transportation department, which is seemingly run like a third world country.
Obviously you are going to forward this on to your bosses, who are probably eagerly awaiting the weekend and their Saturday T-times. Please do not have your bosses physically drop on me with their business cards (over the years I collected enough to wall paper a house) and complementary XXX portfolio with matching calculator and fountain pen. Instead see to it that my order next Thursday arrives no later than 10:30AM…I don’t care if a convoy of XXX managers have to bring the delivery themselves in their cars. If my delivery arrives @ 10:31, it will be shipped back along with a check reflecting the balance of my account.

Fried Capers, Spiced Pineapple, Vanilla-Balsamic Reduction & Midnight Moon Cheese
Fennel Crusted Tuna
Ginger Marinated Cherry Tomatoes & Sungold Tomato Emulsion
Ron’s “Damn Good” Bruschetta (because Ron has to fit a cuss word in every menu he does...)
Truffle Scented Oven-Dried Tomatoes, Oregano & Goat’s Milk Feta
Pasta & Heirloom Tomato Sauce & Mozzarella
Charred Summer Peppers, Fresh Basil & Tomato Vinegar
One of the highlights of the class was the surprise dessert Ron whipped up completely spontaneously - tomato cobbler. He showed the class how to use leftover chopped tomatoes as the base for a surprisingly sweet cobbler. The tomatoes were seasoned with Maple syrup and a bit of salt and then covered with a topping of flour, butter, sugar and rolled oats. As it baked the tomatoes cooked down until almost caramelized and the result was a sweet and tart dessert that surprised everyone!

From the picture above it looks like we (the staff) had just as much fun at last night's Yelp Elite party as the Yelpers themselves! It was a great event - normally we are closed on Sunday evenings but last night we opened the door to Atlanta's Yelp Elite community for a special party showcasing our new menu. We offered samples of many of our menu items (sliders, eggplant chips, onion rings, shrimp & grits...) as well as some amazing cocktails (local Canary melon cocktails, anyone?) to about 150 guests last night.
The best part of the evening was the atmosphere - everyone was in a party spirit and it quickly reverberated through the staff as well. Atlanta Photography came out and took some hilarious photos (including the awesome staff shot shown above). We can't thank the Yelp crowd enough for the fun times and we hope everyone plans repeat visits soon!
