VALENTINE’S DAY JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE
Tuesday, February 14 | Various Times & Locations
From red velvet pancakes enjoyed alongside the Flying Biscuit Cafe’s famous “lovecake” appetizer, to a romantic Italian meal of lobster cannelloni and braised short ribs at Cibo e Beve, there’s hardly a restaurant in town not offering a special Valentine’s Day dinner event. We also recommend checking out Table & Main, Watershed on Peachtree, Osteria Mattone, and the Stupid Cupid celebration at The Original El Taco.
Wednesday, February 15 | 7-8pm | Bellina Alimentari
Maybe you’ll overindulge on Valentine’s Day, or maybe you should check out this guided tasting of 5 speciality Italian wines, focusing on native varietals crafted with a “zero intervention” natural approach. Tickets cost $28 and include light bites from the kitchen.
Thursday, February 16 | 6-9pm | Restaurant Eugene
When two James Beard award-winning chefs join forces, you can expect a truly unforgettable culinary exploration. Marcus Samuelsson and Linton Hopkins are getting creative with Samuelsson’s newly-released cookbook, presenting diners with a sure-to-be-remarkable, collaborative series of dishes, all perfect paired with wines. Samuelsson will end the evening with a cookbook signing and Q&A session with both chefs. Tickets go for $150. Call 404-355-0321 for reservations.
Thursday, February 16 | 8:30pm | The Original El Taco
Ever thought that nachos would be amazing with both BBQ and Buffalo sauce on them? With feta instead of cheddar? Well, tonight is your night to find out. Check out The Original El Taco for Build Your Own Nachos night. 30 toppings. $5 margaritas. $2 cans of Tecate. Add some of our recommendations here to your order.
Saturday, February 18 | 6:00pm | Buckhead Saloon
Forget about sitting around in your PJs and onesies waiting for the warm weather to return. Rock them all the way down to Buckhead for the 1st pub crawl of its kind! Hit up 5 different bars, enjoy some great drink specials, and mix and mingle with the common folk. Snuggies recommended.
Tickets go for $20.
Sunday, February 19 | Smoke Ring BBQ
You all know what a pub crawl is. But what about a BBQ crawl? Atlanta’s 1st ever guided tour of the best barbecue joins in the ATL is here, and it’s kicking off at one of our favorites, Smoke Ring BBQ. On this crawl, you’ll hit up 3 of the top BBQ spots in the city, alongside the president of the Atlanta BBQ Club, Bob Herndon. Taste the BBQ. Learn about the BBQ. Love the BBQ.
We doubt you’ll still be hungry after the crawl, but, in case you’re insatiable like us, get back to Smoke Ring and try our favorite dishes, listed here. Especially the deviled eggs with bacon marmalade. Mmmm…
