Foodie Events: April 30-May 7

  • The Urban Picnic returns to the Sweet Auburn Curb Market tomorrow April 30 between 11 AM and 2 PM.  Presented by the Atlanta Street Food Coalition, the event brings together over a dozen aspiring street food vendors offering delicious treats for you to sample during the lunch hour.   Artichoke Bliss, Good Food Truck, Hankook Taqueria, Souper Jenny and Black Tie Barbecue are just a few of the vendors who'll be on hand for The Urban Picnic.  If you're looking for some great street grub and happen to be near the area, why not swing by on your lunch break?  This is one of those instances when I really wish I worked intown!  For more details and a list of the participating vendors, click here to visit The Urban Picnic's Facebook page.
  • Speaking of Black Tie Barbecue, they're back with another edition of their Secret Supper in celebration of Cinco De Mayo.  Why go to some lame bar for tired Tex-Mex and tortilla chips when you can celebrate in style with a delicious multicourse meal complete with margaritas and cerveza!   I've heard nothing but raves about Black Tie's Secret Supper events-everything is top notch and you are sure to be treated to a fantastic evening.   The event will be held next Wednesday from 6-10PM: all of the other deets will be revealed a couple of days prior to the event.  Tickets are available at $36 per person, but you'll want to purchase yours ASAP because their Secret Supper events usually sell out quickly.  I purchased my ticket this evening; I'm really looking forward to finally being able to attend one of these!  To purchase your tickets and for more info on Black Tie Barbecue, click here.
  • The folks from Food Network will be in town this weekend to hold a casting call for the upcoming second season of Worst Cooks In America.  The casting call will be held this Saturday, May 1 from 10 AM-3 PM at the W Atlanta-Midtown.  They are in search of candidates who are genuine disasters in the kitchen and are willing to go through a "culinary boot camp" to improve their cooking skills.  If you know of someone who fits the bill and would be interested in participating, email the casting team at   In the email, explain why you (or your nominee) is the most pitiful home cook in the country and should be selected for the new season.  In your email, include the nominee's name, age, occupation, hometown, contact number and a recent photo of the potential candidate.   For additional information, visit their website at
