If you've noticed some activity in the former Suska space in the Henrietta Building on Lumpkin Street in Five Points, that's because it'll soon house a Chinese restaurant: Donna Chang's. But wait, it's no chop suey joint.

Looking for your favorite Athens food trucks on Barber at the Jittery Joe's Roaster today? They ain't there. Due to worries about the weather (rain is anticipated), Holy Crepe, Taza, DaMunchiezz, Kona Ice and Farm Cart can be found starting at 5 p.m. tonight at the Classic Center's pavilion, on Foundry Street, which is covered. Ten percent of sales benefit the Circle of Friends Animal Society.
Unhappy with the canned choices Creature Comforts regularly presents? Well, boo on you. You should be more grateful. But the local brewery wants to make you happy, so it's throwing a party all over Normaltown tomorrow (Thursday, June 16) to celebrate its release ofAutomatic, a seasonal pale ale that's a bit hoppier than its usual offerings.
After a brief period where the space that previously housed Piccolo's was closed (see previously here), in a Watkinsville shopping center on Hog Mountain Road (by Bell's), it reopened rapidly, under new ownership, as Bella Noche. The new place calls itself an Italian/Latin restaurant, but the Italian part of the menu is considerably larger.

Various folks from Athens' Hispanic and Latino community sell food on a regular basis to raise money for families in need due to deportations. This Saturday, you can come buy their wonderful goods at Little Kings from 6 p.m. until the food runs out. (You'll be over there for the Hot Corner Festival anyway.) Offerings include tamales, enchiladas, flautas, tinga, aguas frescas and more. No set prices; just donate what you can.

Taqueria La Parrilla has come a long way from its quiet beginnings in the Homewood Hills Shopping Center, with a location on Athens' Eastside and one in Watkinsville, in addition to the original.
Transmet West, on Oglethorpe Avenue, has announced that its last day in business will be this Sunday, May 22. An all-you-can-eat buffet will be available for $12 per person that day, and beer and wine will run you only a buck to clear out as much inventory as possible. Also: live music.
