Sugar Coma Festival Returns

If you LOVE desserts (who doesn’t?) then you’re not going to want to miss the Sugar Coma Festival coming to Atlantic Station on Sunday, November 13, 2011 from 2-6 p.m.

Shameeka Ayers (@BrokeSocialite) goes above and beyond to make this event the best dessert tasting experience in Atlanta, bringing in the top pastry chefs and bakers from around the city. There will also be gluten-free and vegan offerings.

Get your early bird tickets here for $20. The Sugar Coma usually sells out.

Chomp and Stomp Returns on November 5

Let’s face it, spending the day eating chili, drinking Sweetwater brew and watching bluegrass in the middle of Cabbagetown is just plain fun! The Chomp and Stomp Chili Cook Off & Festival returns to Cabbagetown Park on November 5, 2011 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

For only $5, you can purchase a spoon which allows you to sample chili from more than 100 individuals/teams and local restaurants.  I’ve been the last two years and had a blast both years. Just make sure you arrive early. It gets packed in the chili tasting areas.

Grab a cold Sweetwater, find a place on the lawn and kick back with some bluegrass.

If you’re not familiar with Cabbagetown, read up on the area before you head down. Cabbagetown has some interesting history that makes the experience even better.

I will leave you with this music video from Shawn Mullins about Cabbagetown.
