The Broke Socialite's popular foodie events. The overwhelming success of her Sugar Coma tours spawned two offshoots, Freeze (a tour of ice cream, froyo and other frozen treats) and Graze (a tour featuring small bites). I opted for the Graze tour. While I do love a good cupcake or two, the whole idea of Graze was more my speed.
The Graze tour was loads of fun. We were chauffeured to each tour stop in nice rides provided by Zipcar. The car I was riding in was chauffeured by none other than the hubby of our tour hostess, Mr. TBS himself (who was fantastic-great guy)! I also had the pleasure of hangin' with "Auntie" TBS for most of the tour. Our first stop was the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, where we visited Grindhouse Killer Burgers and sampled a variety of tasty sliders and chocolate peanut butter shakes.
Next we visited Woody's Cheesesteaks, Sheik Burritos and Kabobs, the beautiful Mansion on Peachtree and Noon Midtown. At Noon, Reggie the mixologist whipped up the most delicious strawberry, basil, lemon and lime cocktail-so good that I was thinking about it days later. I haven't had a chance to yet, but I plan to attempt a reasonable facsimile at home.

In late July, I had the pleasure of attending an "Eat Up" organized by one of my favorite local food bloggers Eat Buford Highway. On this occasion we visited La Casona, a Colombian restaurant just off of Buford Hwy near I-285 in Doraville. I finally had a chance to meet another blogger fave (Food Near Snellville) and it was also great to meet up with Emily from Ultra Foodie and the Poodle Revolution again. The food was quite good, the prices very reasonable, and the portions were humongous!
