Foodie News x Restaurant Reviews x Hip-Hop Attitude

In 2010, I (Nick Love) spent over 45% of my annual income eating out at some of Atlanta's best (and worst) restaurants. So, who better to guide you through the city's crowded dining terrain?? Now, I, along with my team of Hip-Hop generation foodies, will expose and review ATL's newest hits, hidden gems, and old favorites. Hopefully, this blog will earn us a free meal or two while we point you guys in the direction of some good food and steer you away from the wackness. Let's eat!!!

Atlanta BBQ Festival @ Atlantic Station (Sept 30-Oct 1, 2011)

If there's one thing that can consistently get me going, it's good ol' fashioned barbecue!!!  The meat, the sauce, the sides. . .  BOY-OH-BOY!!!  Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.  The smell of charcoal burning and that beef, pork, and poultry slowly cooking brings back memories of family cookouts (FYI, my parents make THE BEST BABY BACK RIBS IN THE WORLD!!!).  And, what's the only thing better than a small family cookout??  Well, hopefully it's the Atlanta BBQ Festival.

The 3rd Annual Atlanta BBQ Festival goes down this Friday and Saturday in Atlantic Station w/ food, live music, cooking competitions, and more.  If you enjoy the distinct barbecue styles of St. Louis, Kentucky, the Carolinas, Texas's hearty flavor, or that Memphis dry rub (a flavor that I've grown to love over the last year or two), this is the place to be.  They're expecting 15,000+ to come across that 17th St bridge and I'm sure that I'll be one of them.  More than likely, I'll hit it up on Friday evening while the rest of the city is sitting in traffic.

Tickets for the event are only $6 in advance and are available here.  Kids 12 and under are FREE w/ a paid adult.

Happy Eating!!!
