THURSDAY NIGHT! OH MY YUMMINESS!

Holy Cow People! Chef Nicholas Walker did not disappoint, not even for a split second! This man has talent!

The Cobb Galleria Centre partnered with Monday Night Brewing and treated me (and my AtlFBS pals) to an amazing small plates menu expertly paired with beers from Monday Night Brewing.

Thank you so much for yet another delicious dining experience CBC, and Jeff Heck... I'll take a ssix-packof each beer to go!

Just look at this people! Seriously one of the best dining experiences yet.

More bubbles, less bullion. Through May 31, all three Ray’s Restaurants are popping open bottles of Dom Perignon Champagne for $150 instead of the usual $250. Now that you’ve saved, how about a small splurge? Ray’s in the City, Ray’s on the River and Ray’s at Killer Creek are each featuring their own King salmon and soft shell crab seasonal specials. Those looking for a luscious lobster and Champagne dinner can zero in on Ray’s Signature Lobster Cobb salad or specialties such as Canadian Cold Water Lobster Tail, a Whole Maine Lobster or an option to pair a Cold Water Lobster Tail with one of Ray’s top quality Certified Angus Beef steaks. Hurry in, because like those Champagne bubbles, the Dom Perignon special will soon disappear.

One bottle. That’s all. Be one of the lucky diners at The Southern Gentleman to indulge in limited edition 25-year Pappy Van Winkle bourbon. Bourbon connoisseurs know this elixir is to be savored and rolled across the palate. The Van Winkle family distillery produced fewer than 1000 bottles and just 710 bottles have been filled and sold – which works out to fewer than 15 bottles per state. A one-ounce neat pour carries a $350 price tag. Impressive? You bet. But then, so is The Southern Gentleman -- and its notable bourbon program -- in the Shops Buckhead Atlanta.
Hurry up and get it before it's gone!
