It's the rare eatery that actually opens when it says it will, between contractors, health inspections and getting funding squared away. Athenians will be pleased to know, however, after some months of peering in the windows, that Zombie Coffee and Donuts is opening its branch downtown (in the former Your Pie, on Broad) next Monday, May 23.

1000 Faces Coffee is hosting Brew Down V, a coffee-brewing competition among five baristas, tomorrow (Tuesday, May 17) at 7 p.m. Rachel Eubanks (Creature Comforts), Ben Mueller (1000 Faces), Blake Tyers (Creature Comforts), Will Shurtz (Methodical Coffee, in City View, SC) and Micah Sherer (Ally Coffee, in Taylor, SC) will compete to see who can make the best cuppa. Sara Frinak of Hugh Acheson's Spiller Park Coffee in Atlanta will emcee, and Lindsey Pittman (Trade & Lore, in Asheville, NC), Jessica Rothacker (Heirloom Cafe) and Dale B. Donchey (Spiller Park) will judge. The event is free to all, with Creature Comforts beer and snacks.
The West Broad Market Garden opened for the season on Saturday.
It's the market's third year, and possibly its last. The community garden on the vacant West Broad School property is a partnership between the Athens Land Trust and the Clarke County School District, but as CCSD plans to renovate the vacant school into administration offices, officials are considering paving over the garden for employee parking and moving the garden to a much smaller lot nearby, leaving the future of the garden unclear.
Flagpole staff photographer Joshua L. Jones documented the market's opening day.
One of the founders of local hipster supper-club The Four Coursemen, Damien Schaefer, is looking to start a brewpub in Decatur called Normaltown Artisanal Brewery & Cucina, and he's seeking investors from across Georgia.

Piedmont College's Cafe on Prince, which has been serving up good Southern cooking, cafeteria style, for some time now, will close after today, as Pete reported in Pub Notes. The college intends to repurpose the space for academics, which is understandable, even if a loss to good fried chicken.

Starting at 9 a.m. tomorrow (Wednesday, Apr. 27), kind of like the title cards that start off each episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," the Jittery Joe's Roaster on Barber Street will host a food truck/art festival in its parking lot, until 7:30 p.m.
Tomorrow is G-Day, so good luck parking, but Creature Comforts—which opened on Twilight weekend in 2014—will celebrate its second anniversary Saturday with tours featuring a bunch of special one-of beers (in addition to the old standbys).

Last year, Athenian Rebecca Lang had a book out about fried chicken. (Read our feature on Lang from May 2015.) This year, she's done a 180 and is taking on veggies, in The Southern Vegetable Cookbook: A Root-to-Stalk Guide to the South's Favorite Produce, put out bySouthern Living. Divided into the four seasons, the book is accessible, beautifully photographed and full of nice tips (e.g., how best to preserve excess from your garden, how to make a corn broth with leftover cobs, celery leaves can add good flavor to salads).
