Food roundup below:
As of at least today but possibly earlier, Little Bull Bar & Grill on Broad downtown (Flagpole review) is closed, with its Facebook page vanished and its lights off.
OK Cafe (Flagpole review), which was doing business in the kiosk outside Wuxtry, making delicious grilled cheese sandwiches, also appears to be no more.
We’re trying to find out the situation with Glenda Brown’s Peaches, which operated briefly in the former The Camp in Homewood Hills but now appears to be looking for a new location.
Lil’ Ice Cream Dude Beau Shell, the elementary schooler who works events all over Athens in the summer with his trailer and cooler retailing all kinds of popsicles, is running an Indiegogo campaign to upgrade his materials. You can check out his business plan (the kid’s a member of the Athens Chamber of Commerce) and video here.
Shiraz and Heirloom are teaming up for a wine dinner based on Wolf Mountain’s offerings Mar. 25 at 6 p.m.
Georgia Food Tours has two farm tours coming up. The Agro Cycle Tour takes place near Comer on Apr. 6, with eats at each farm plus a farm-sourced crepe meal at the end of the bike ride at 3 Porch Farm. Then, Apr. 12 and 13, it holds a “Farmeander Weekend” near Madison, which also involves farms and eating and yum but does not require a bicycle or any kind of exercise. It also concludes with a fancy five-course dinner by Mimi Maumus of home.made.
Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s is Apr. 8.
Terrapin’s birthday carnival celebration/bar mitzvah is Apr. 12 from 4:30–8:30 p.m.. The website says:
Festivities will include 4 casks of Rye Pale Ale each showcasing a different pepper variety (Bold!), infused beers, barrel aged beers, latin american foods, great buslesque and dance performances plus live music! All the regular favorite beers will also be on tap right along with some favorites from the past. Who knows what tasty brew has been hiding in our cellar?! Terrapin is really pulling out all the stops for this anniversary, including our world famous beer dunk tank! [emphasis added]
