The Pine, in Five Points, is adding a downstairs bar called The Root, which will open in August. Co-owner Scott Parrish said it will be open seven days a week, until midnight Sunday–Wednesday and until 1 a.m. Thursday–Saturday. Unlike the upstairs, it won't serve food, but it will have "a tap and can list, a handful of wines and craft cocktails and a sizable whiskey selection," said Parrish.

Every Tuesday this summer, The Foundry (previously known as The Melting Point, which you probably still call it if you are an Athenian of long standing, habituated to referring to places by their previous names) is offering a pretty good deal for a date night.
Further fleshing out the ground floor of the Georgia Heights building at Broad and Hull streets downtown, a location of the small franchise Cinnaholic will be opening soon. Promising 100 percent vegan gourmet cinnamon rolls, customizable with a wide variety of toppings, it seems like the counterpart to Zombie Donuts, on the other side of College, pumping out the scent of sugar into the already complex bouquet of downtown's fragrance.
After a brief period as a near food-desert, the new Epps Bridge shopping wonderland has been adding eating options aplenty. Just to the left of Groove Burgers, Wok's Up will open in August and is currently hiring for all positions.
If you've been stuck at the light at Gaines School and Cedar Shoals, you may have noticed a sign that popped up in the old Charlie Nobles space in the Ansonborough development. Craft Public House plans to open there later this month, the project of chef/owner Brandon Kelly and owner/GM Rob Longstreet. Craft is a gastropub, which is certainly something new for the Eastside.

The only appropriate reaction to the news that Paul's Bar-B-Q, in Lexington, served its last meal this Fourth of July is, "Aw, dang."
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.
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.

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.
