RogueApron On A Hot Night

Last night I attended RogueApron‘s Mama Mediterranean dinner, which included lemon basil infused vodka, delicious lamb kebabs, rich moussaka, and handmade biscotti and panna cotta for dessert. The food, drink, and company were all fantastic, as was the atmosphere of the lovely garden at the host home. Atlanta weather cooperated by holding back the rains, […]

As of what I think is an 11/2007 menu printing, gone is any trace of the Pimento Cheese option as an appetizer, for burgers or for grilled cheeses. When I discovered this today, our server said something about a […]

Atlanta Startup Weekend Is A Success, Skribit Launches

Congratulations to the Startup Weekend Atlanta crew. I was only there for part of Friday night, but I’ve been following the action (and the drama) on the Startup Weekend blog. Anyone who can endure an entire weekend of wall-to-wall effort with a sizable crew of people they largely don’t know deserves some serious praise. They […]
