Wednesday night, we'll try something different. A gourmet Italian meal paired with Georgia craft beer. It's all goin' down at Cucina Asellina in Midtown. From Cucina,
"While wine is often the go-to libation of choice for diners enjoying an authentic Italian meal, Cucina Asellina has joined forces with Georgia’s own Wild Heaven Craft Beer to host an unforgettable four-course tasting dinner on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. For just $45, diners have the opportunity to meet Wild Heaven’s founder Nick Purdy and consulting brewmaster Eric Johnson and learn about their world-class, award-winning beers.

Today's full day plan can take up to about 30 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta. In fact, it's a rare one where you could probably get around with taxi alone for not much dough! The 30 miles equates to about 22 pounds of carbon dioxide, or the carbon sequestered by about 4 sq feet of forest. Calculations are based on the U.S. EPA's green house gas equivalencies calculator.
