The two-story space that housed East West Bistro for many years, on Broad Street downtown, finally seems to be getting a tenant: a diner chain out of Jacksonville, FL.

One problem with the Chase Park warehouses, on Tracy Street in the Boulevard neighborhood, has been that there's not much to eat or drink there, unless you get lucky and happen upon a Canopy bake sale or a pop-up art opening. Since Hip Pops closed in October, there's been even less.
But now, Veronica's Sweet Spot, a project of local musician Veronica Darby, is finally open for business there, with coffee, tea and snacks for sale.

Owner Chuck Ramsey says they put out all of their Thanksgiving food Thursday morning, "shut the smoker down, and left around 1 [p.m.]. I got a call at 2:40 from a neighbor saying the smoke coming out didn't look right. It totally gutted the smokehouse and destroyed the smoker. The fire inspector hasn't been able to determine a cause yet, but said it didn't look like arson."
Thanksgiving is a time for, well, giving thanks, in addition to, as Louis C.K. put it, eating until you hate yourself.
It's also a time when the preparation of various foodstuffs can go horribly awry—not to mention an occasion for getting into epic political arguments with your Fox News Russia Today-watching relatives, plus various other wine-fueled conflicts that occur whenever you pack a bunch of people into a house who don't really like each other but are supposed to pretend they do.
Athens brewery Creature Comforts is rereleasing its popular milk porter, Koko Buni, later this month in cans and on draft—just in time for the cold weather that a week ago seemed like it'd never come.
Koko Buni (6.8% ABV) is brewed with Ecuadorean chocolate from Condor Chocolates and 100 Faces coffee, as well as vanilla and toasted coconut. Local artist David Hale won a CNBC competition in April for his can design.

One thing you can be thankful for in Athens is that we have many, many local restaurants more than willing to cook some delicious food for your Thanksgiving dinner in exchange for your dollars (and, in one case, not even for that). Here’s the list of what we know: how to order, what the deadlines are, whether they’re offering turkey or just sides and so on. We'll update it as info comes in.

The much-anticipated Donna Chang's, in Five Points, is kinda, sorta open for business, and from what I hear, has been very busy despite a very quiet soft open. For now, it's dinner only, five nights a week (closed Tuesday and Wednesday; 5–10 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Sunday; 5–11 p.m. Friday and Saturday), but more nights and lunch will be added. Menu is up on the website linked.
