Atlanta, GA

Recently training for work brought me to Atlanta for a week of long days learning protocol and processes combined with long nights of exploring downtown Atlanta. A few of the highlights of my trip:

 Alma Cocina:

Carnitas tacos, guacamole, and a Keep Your Head Down to drink

This delicious Mexican restaurant and bar Downtown Atlanta offers a trendy atmosphere, excellent food with a few unique options including braised goat, a full bar and creative drink menu.

Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint:

This place, in my Yankee mind, is the epitome of real southern food and charm.

Blueberry Lemonade Moonshine. Delicious! This was my first time trying anything with moonshine. Dirty south!

Not the healthiest of meals, but it tasted amazing! This is the best fried chicken I have ever had! The meat was juicy and succulent, the breading crispy and flavorful with a hint of sweet. The sweet potato fries were amazing! However, the mac and cheese was a disappointment. I had high hopes, but found it to taste more like stuffing than cheese. Overall, fabulous meal!

I love hot sauce. Thank you Minxy for converting me. This one was delicious! I have never seen it up north, but it is worth hunting around for. The flavors are amazing and it adds a nice bit of heat without overdoing it with burn.

Did I mention live music?

Meehan’s Public House:

Another Irish pub with good drinks, good people, and a good atmosphere. As we were walking out and older gentleman approached my friend and I. Directing the conversation at my friend he told her his friend, Teddy,  thought she looked bored and could give her the night of her life. Stepping aside, Teddy was revealed to be an man with a thick mustache and toupe. Sexy.

Museum Bar:

We took a cab here on a weeknight and were greeted by two big events, a concert for breast cancer, and some promotional event for Bombay Sapphire. We chose the free cocktails from Bombay. Upon being seated we were handed canvas each and asked to paint. So we began to paint… at a bar, with pink cocktails.

Steamhouse Lounge:

This place was a true local restaurant and bar offering fresh, delicious seafood and a good atmosphere. We sat on the second floor balcony overlooking the city of Atlanta and munching on calamari and fish tacos.
