Goodie Two Shoes

Hey, remember when we told you about Mama’s Boy opening a new restaurant in the 909 Broad Building downtown, only it didn’t have a name yet? Well, now it does. Cooper Currin, co-owner, confirmed that Goodie Two Shoes is opening Dec. 1 for lunch. She said the space has already been used for catering and that she’s looking to start booking private events in the spring. The website is a placeholder for now (but has hours—weekdays from 11 a.m.–2 p.m.—and the phone number), and the Facebook page has some sneak peeks of the interior.

More food news:

South Kitchen + Bar is starting a family-style supper club this Sunday, with drinks at 7:30 and dinner at 8 p.m. The charge of $18 gets you food plus one drink. Reservations aren’t required but can be made at

In case you missed it in the Thanksgiving takeout article, Saucehouse, on Broad, is now looking at a March 2015 opening.

Graduate Athens, the new hotel that used to be the Foundry Park Inn & Spa, has a coffee bar called Iron Works Coffee, in its lobby. To attract some attention, it’s running a scavenger hunt Dec. 8–12 targeted at UGA students. If you find one of 15 mini-composition notebooks, there’s a token inside for a free coffee (La Colombe) and pastry. Clues will be posted on the hotel’s social media channels.
