Praise the Lord, Athenians (and engaged couple) Rachel Barnes and Alfredo Lapuz Jr. are just a few steps away from launching their food truck, Manila Express, which should start serving at various locations very soon. You might have seen the truck, with its temporary sign, parked next to Holy Crepe at Boulevard and Park.
Barnes says Manila Express gets its name from Lapuz's dad's band, and will likely set up shop on East Clayton next to Atomic or on Hancock at Creature Comforts, as well as elsewhere. She points out that Filipino street food goes well with brews, and describes the truck's offerings as "pulutan-esque items," which translates as "to pair with beer."
It's Athens Beer Week, and there's even more going on than we could cram into this rather lengthy roundup of local beer news.
In addition to Terrapin's 15th anniversary event Saturday, Creature Comforts will celebrate its third anniversary Apr. 22 and 23, and tickets go on sale tomorrow (there are two levels, $30 and $40). The tour entitles you to 36 ounces of beer samples, and you can choose from among a list of 30.

If you've ever tried to park at Mama's Boy during a busy time of day (i.e., basically all of them) and ended up giving up, with a flood of profanity, you'll be pleased to hear about the restaurant's upcoming second location.

If you've been in Athens for more than a year, you know that April is the month in which any day of the week probably has 16 different events parked on it, from G-Day to Plantapalooza, Fluke, Insectival and so on.
This weekend kicks things off, with the following opportunities to eat and/or purchase the ingredients to make delicious food. You don't have to make it to everything, and there's probably no way you can.
As part of her fundraising for Project Safe's Dancing With the Athens Stars, Airee Edwards (seen above with her Team 6 partner) has teamed up with Peter Dale of The National to offer Blue Apron-type meal kits, available for a limited time. As the saying goes, give the man a fish cooked by Peter Dale, he'll eat for a day; buy the man a meal kit that teaches him how to cook like Peter Dale, and he might actually learn something.

After a couple of months of revamping, the restaurant that was previously The Branded Butcher (charcuterie, adventurous more high-end dining), next to the Georgia Theatre on Lumpkin Street downtown, is open in its new version, as Clarke's Standard.
As y'all know (or should know), Ciné, our only art-house theater, is also a nonprofit, and like all nonprofits, it needs to raise money apart from ticket sales. It's partnering with My Athens to throw a three-course benefit catered by The National, with beers from Wild Heaven, this Saturday, Feb. 25, at 6:15 p.m. in the CinéLab.
