BBQ giveth and BBQ taketh away. Rooter's, on Whitehall Road, which took over the building and the sauce recipes of Jot 'Em Down, will close Saturday. Sorry, folks. On the other hand, Bill's Bar-B-Que in Hull (reviewed forever and a day ago in Flagpole, before the website crashed and was rebuilt, making the old story unlinkable) seems to be returning next month, in the same location, on Fortson Store Road.
Are you super into the delicious Ethiopian food that Mannaweenta serves up at the West Broad Farmers Market on Saturdays (reviewed here last year) but you wish you could get it at other times and on other days? Well, it looks like a regular physical location will be an option soon.
Well, darn. Journey Juice is closing at the end of March, meaning you're down to Juice Up and Arden's Garden should you believe the hype and choose to take your nutrition in liquid form. Its product was always lovely and its Prince storefront a nice change from the succession of unhealthy eateries that occupied the same space.

Pi Day (Mar. 14 = 3.14) is coming up this weekend, and Your Pie will offer a special of $3.14 off your pizza (a slightly different deal than in previous years) and $3.14 pints at all its Athens-area locations. It's especially nice that the yearly promo tends to coincide with spring break, which means the lines are short, too.

For $65, you get four courses…

The space in the Baxter Street lofts building that previously housed Silver Lining Cupcakes now has a new restaurant in it: The Table. The name is a little generic, but the food looks not uninteresting, and the folks who own it have done this before (not in Athens).
After some months vacant, the little space next to Jimbo's convenience store on Baxter that once was Ronnie B's and since then has been a succession of barbecue joints is once again serving up pig. Porkhouse BBQ opened there this week and has its Facebook and Twitter accounts up, but not its website or phone (yet).

If you don't know Swen Froemke's name, you might at least remember his desserts, if you ever went to Cinco y Diez while it was open. Like many aspects of the dearly missed restaurant, they were forward-thinking and intelligent, combining boundary-pushing with pleasure in a rare way. Froemke is now the new general manager at Speakeasy, and he's changing its direction, judging by the new menus.

Well, dang it. Local Table (reviewed here), which was doing such a nice job in downtown Watkinsville, is closed, due to issues with its flooring that were not covered by insurance and were too expensive for the restaurant to fix. Kiki's Bakeshop next door, also owned by Kirsten Bradford, remains open.
Seabear Oyster Bar is hosting an Athens Chefs Dinner this MLK Day, at 7 p.m., with eight courses plus beer pairings by Creature Comforts for $60. Call the restaurant at 706-850-4367 for reservations (only 40 seats available).
