Live to Eat! 3

Happy February and welcome to our annual “Food” issue! It is one of my favorites because I am one of those people who live to eat. I was a foodie before I knew what a foodie was! It was fun this month to learn more about some new restaurants in our area and try some delicious dishes throughout Vinings and Smyrna.

Not sure of where to go eat? Need a new recommendation in the area? Bored with choosing the same thing at your restaurant of choice? This issue is for you! Check out the Top Plates of Vinings for some of our favorite dishes at Vinings area restaurants. You can also read more about the new, sexy restaurant and bar, The Public House, and for some Latin flavor, Front Porch Latin Kitchen.

Looking for Valentine’s gifts? We’ve got you covered too. Get the scoop on the ultimate gift from Union Diamond or maybe snag tickets to an Alvin Ailey performance at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre. (There will be a Vinings local performing!) Or go to one of my new favorite spots, Lollibop Sweetshop, for a delicious treat.

Until next month, I’ll see you in carpool at Nickajack, watching youth basketball at the Buckhead YMCA, or savoring an ice cream cone at Bruster’s.

In My Bag

This month, the items in my bag are the most indulgent sweet treats I know. I follow the ideology that everything is good in moderation…even moderation.

Have something I should add to my bag? Or an idea for a future story or feature?
