A Weekend of Local Dining Events in Atlanta, Georgia


If you're in the Atlanta area this weekend and love food (and who doesn't?) you should check out Food & Wine Magazine's culinary events happening throughout the city. The magazine has teamed with restaurateurs in Atlanta, Athens & Palmetto to raise money for their Grow for Good campaign, which is a national initiative dedicated to raising awareness of sustainable agriculture and educating about the importance of supporting local farms. The weekend kicks off this evening as numerous restaurants around the city open their chef's table to offer a select tasting menu featuring Georgia-grown ingredients. But if you can't make it tonight, not to worry, more events continue throughout the weekend. For example, Saturday's festivities include a "Country Fair in the City," featuring Georgia's finest farmers, live music, farm fresh goods and beer. On Sunday, guests are invited to a "Summer Supper at Summerland Farm" to enjoy delicious food while savoring the beauty of a working farm.
