Foodie Events: Midtown Restaurant Week & More...

The Labor Day weekend is upon us, and there's no shortage of places to go and good food to eat!  Here are some of the events on tap for the week of Sept 4-12, 2010.  I think I'll probably stop by the Carribean Jerk Festival this Sunday-what will you be getting into this weekend?  Whatever you decide, have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!
  • Midtown Restaurant Week (Sept 4-12):  Starting this Saturday, the 5th annual event is your chance to sample some of the city's best restaurants at a great price.   Participating restaurants will offer a three course menu for only $25.   4th & Swift, Pacci RistoranteOne Midtown Kitchen and Spice Market are just a few of the restaurants taking part.  For a complete list of participating restaurants and for more information, click here to visit the official site.
  • Street Food Soiree (Sept. 9)The Atlanta Street Food Coalition (the folks behind the monthly Urban Picnic events) presents a Street Food Soiree next Thursday from 5-9 PM at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market.  If you're like me and have been unable to attend their monthly lunchtime events, here's your chance to sample goodies from popular street food vendors such as Yumbii and The Good Food Truck.  Free parking will be available under the I-85 bridge. 
  • Hands On Creative Sushi Workshop with Chinese Southern Belle (Sept. 9):  Join CSB's Natalie Keng as she presents a Creative Sushi Workshop next Thursday from 7-9 PM at the Buford Highway Farmers Market.  She'll give you tips on making sushi rice, rolls and the proper cookware needed to prepare your own sushi creations.  The cost is only $15 and upon completion of the workshop you'll receive a BHFM gift card!  Natalie's classes fill up quickly so register now by contacting Bill at the BHFM by phone (678)873-7447 or click here to register via email.  For a complete rundown of Chinese Southern Belle's upcoming workshops and events, visit their site at
  • Low Country Boil (Sept. 11):  The folks at Black Tie Barbecue are having an end of the summer Low Country Boil next Saturday between 7-10 PM.   Join them as they serve up a big spread of tasty jumbo shrimp, potatoes, sausage, and corn.  The cost is $35 and includes alcoholic beverages.  Much like their "secret suppers", the location will be revealed to attendees prior to the event.  Tickets on sale now-buy yours before the event sells out!
