Here's What You Do Saturday, August 4, 2012

Come Save the Hooch on Saturday at the End of Summer BBQ at Canoe

It's time to give back folks.  Here's what you do.  Canoe, Sweetwater Brewing Company, and the Upper Chattahoochee River Keeper are hosting an End of Summer BBQ at Canoe on Saturday.  Go get your BBQ on!  Did you know the Chattahoochee is the 3rd most endangered river in the United States?  We gotta do something about that.  The event will be right on the banks of the river at Canoe's gardens, from 1-4 on Saturday afternoon.  BBQ is provided by Canoe.  If you've ever had their food, you know it's gonna be good.  Sweetwater Brewery is providing the suds.  They're also presenting the check for their annual Save the Hooch campaign to the Upper Chattahoochee River Keeper organization.  The River Keeper folks do really important work.  Learn more about it here.  Tickets are $25 online and $30 at the door. Part proceeds go to the River Keeper.  Get them here.

Here's what you do Saturday:

First: I made an omelet the other day, with Dahl.  That quintessential indian dish with lentils and spice.  It was perfect.  The perfect blend of flavors. Make an omelet according to Jacque Pepin's recipe.  Don't forget to use heavy whipping cream with the eggs.  Insert some Dahl in the middle, and you're good to go. ($10)

Second: Ask the Gardener.  Head on over to the Chattahoochee Nature Center and get some tips from their professional gardening staff, and check out what they have growing over there.  It starts at 10.  Check it out here.  ($Free)

Third: End of Summer BBQ.   The BBQ awaits.  Go have some fun by the river for a good cause.  ($25 per person, $30 at the door).

Fourth: It's 4 in the afternoon.  Time to nap.  Follow the perfect bed rules.

Finally:  Head on down to Inman park and have a little Italian dinner at Sotto Sotto. This cozy little place brings the fancy.  Start of with a Saved by the Basil cocktail.  Then settle into some warm octopus insalatina, the pork meatballs, and casarecce pasta with lamb ragu.  Oh, and you have to try the risotto.  They have a special one every day.  Just go with it and make your belly happy.  ($40 per person).

Pasta at Sotto Sotto is awesome!
