For $65, you get four courses…
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).
American Winter, an HBO documentary about social services in Portland, OR, is a terrifying look at just how quickly the upper-middle and working classes alike can slip into poverty and homelessness.
Community Connection screened the film Sunday to kick off its revamped Taste of Athens. The Feb. 22 event will be scaled back considerably, moving from the Classic Center Grand Hall to the atrium, allowing the 20-plus participating chefs to focus on food and hospitality, rather than simply feeding 2,000 people.
A new event, Toast of Athens, a cocktail competition, will be added next year. Bartenders from eight local watering holes will compete to see who makes the best libation in town.
If you still miss both breakfast and brunch at The National, neither of which is available anymore, and/or you really prefer your eggs with a side of false eyelashes, note thatBoybutante's annual Drag Brunch is taking place at the restaurant this Sunday.
