By November 3, 2016 No Comments

We hope you recovered from your Halloween candy bender and are ready to nosh. This weekend is about giving back and eating to your heart’s content. Bring your appetite for sweets, BBQ and social good when you head to these tasty events this weekend:

Friday 7pm – 10pm: A Night in Sweet, Sweet Syria

When a Syrian family packed their belongings to flee their home, they made room for their heirloom cookie molds. Now refugees in America, the family hopes to share the sweeter side of Syria though baked goods, as Syrians have done for generations. Head down to the Elevator Factory Lofts to enjoy a traditional four-course meal, Arabic coffee and, of course, desserts in support of this inspiring family. If you miss the dinner, be sure to swoop your cookies here.

Saturday 11am – 6pm: Chomp and Stomp Chili Cook-Off & Bluegrass Festival

Everyone knows that Chomp and Stomp is one of Atlanta’s favorite fall festivals. But did you know that it’s actually a social good event? That’s right! You can chomp on chili from over 95 different teams and restaurants, stomp your heart out to songs of the South, and know you’re contributing to a greener Cabbagetown. Proceeds from the event go to Cabbagetown Initiative Community Development Corporation so head on down to Chomp and Stomp town.


KOP Field Day! What’s the best part? Carnival games? Tie-dye shirt station? Field day games? Swag and prizes? Pop eating contest? Live bands? FREE POPS? To decide what you love best about KOP’s annual field day, pop over to Dad’s Garage Theatre and join the festivities.

Sunday 2pm – 6pm: Brer Rabbit, Blues & BBQ

To wrap up the weekend, take your family and friends to the heart of the West End for fun stories, SweetWater brews, finger-lickin’ DAS BBQ, and music you can groove to. This is the perfect opportunity to get your tour on at historic Wren’s Nest.
