Tomorrow night (Saturday, Sept. 17, starting at 7 p.m.), Hendershots, in the Bottleworks on Prince, is hosting a food/music/drink/fashion thingie called The Experience. The coffee bar/bar bar will provide drinks, Monsoon is playing music, and designer Kristen Stanfill will feature her clothes.
But what we're concerned with here is the food. It's being supplied by an LLC called Springhouse, registered in Augusta, that specializes in these kinds of events, and the menu looks appropriately interesting: sorghum caramel corn, fancy roasted vegetable tacos, chicken satay, a take on banana pudding, things like that. Tickets are $35 including online convenience fee and can be purchased from athensmusic.net.

Joe Nedza is an undergraduate management student in UGA's Terry College of Business. He's also (like a lot of those students) a budding entrepreneur, but his business of choice isn't an app or an enterprise solution. It's waffles.

Atlanta's Hankook Taqueria—which has a location near Cross Creek on Atlanta's west side, a partnership with the Yumbii food truck and two sister restaurants (both called Takorea, one in midtown Atlanta and one in Buckhead)—will take over the former Etienne Brasserie space at Jackson and Broad in downtown Athens, opening in November. Owner Tomas Lee has a fairly serious pedigree, and his Korean-Mexican fusion has done well in Atlanta.
A few weeks ago I went to a cookout in Atlanta, and a friend of a friend who works at a package store told me that they sell out of their weekly allotment of Tropicalia within hours, even though they limit purchases to one six-pack per customer.
He wasn't lying. The AJC recently ran an article about the city's shortage of Athens-based Creature Comforts' flagship IPA. Just another reason to be glad you live in Athens.
The article also includes some interesting insights into the limitations on production that small craft breweries face. As international beer conglomerates buy up crafts, they're able to negotiate better deals with hop growers.
If you're all fired up about canning after reading this week's Locavore, you should know that one-time Athenian Liana Krissoff will be signing the new (and expanded) edition of her book"Canning for a New Generation: Bold, Fresh Flavors for the Modern Pantry" today at 6:30 p.m. at Avid Bookshop, along with photographer Rinne Allen.

After a little more than two years, Brixx, the franchise pizza place at the base of the West Washington Street mixed-use parking deck downtown, has closed. Should you have a gift card, other locations will honor it, and there are two in Atlanta. The Athens location has been for sale for a while now, through the Shumacher Group in Atlanta.
The Broad Street Dairy Queen has also closed and will apparently not be renovated into one of those fancy new DQs.
Just weeks after selling the Athens brewery he founded to an international conglomerate and leaving the company, ex-Terrapin CEO John Cochran has bought an Asheville, NC brewery, according to the Asheville Citizen-Times.
Cochran is taking over Altamont Brewing and changing its name to UpCountry Brewing. The purchase also includes a restaurant Altamont owns called Nona Mia, which will now be UpCountry Eatery.
