Your weekend in food, 2/17-2/19

SWB_15th_Invite_120116_03CTEven though it looks like we may get a little rain this weekend, there are some foodie events around town worth breaking out your galoshes and parkas. If you time everything right, with a little dedication, hitting all three is possible and would make for a nice little rainy Saturday. All three events are either partially indoors or will include tents to keep everyone dry. Check ‘em out…

Parish’s 4th annual Mardi Gras Celebration

When:

Saturday, February 18th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Where:

PARISH: Foods & Goods

240 N. Highland Avenue

Atlanta, 30307

This all you can eat and drink Mardi Gras celebration at Inman Park’s Parish is always a good time, featuring a slew of Cajun food like crawfish, New Orleans Sandwiches, oysters, red beans and rice, house made king cake, and a whole roasted hog. Wash it all down at the Abita beer truck while listening to a live band. Tickets are $40 at the door.


Liberty Park Chili Society 5th Annual Chili Cook-Off

When:

Saturday, February 18th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Where:

5 Seasons – Westside

1000 Marietta St NW # 204

Atlanta, 30318

Local blogger Jimmy Sobeck and Aaron Weil are throwing their annual chili cook-off again this weekend, and moving the party to a new venue, the Westside 5 Seasons Brewing. Categories will include Best Unusual, Spiciest, and Best Overall. Tickets are $20, and include “a few beers”, access to the entire upstairs of 5 Seasons, and a whole lot of chili to sample. Proceeds this year will benefit Hands On Atlanta.


SweetWater’s 15th Anniversary Party

When:

Saturday, February 18th from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m

Where:

SweetWater Brewing Company

195 Ottley Drive

Atlanta, 30324

Celebrating “15 years of heady beers”, Atlanta’s biggest brewing success story is throwing a party this Saturday, and dusting off an impressive back catalog of their brews. In addition to a special 15th anniversary ale, which is a barley wine makeover of their original ESB recipe, they are busting out brews like their ’08 Festive Ale (which seriously ages well…I still have a bottle of ’09 I’m waiting to get into), the Dank Tank brews, and the 420 IPA. You can see a full list of the featured beers on their Facebook Event page.

Public Service Announcement: if you attend the Sweetwater event, please DO NOT hold up the ticket line by purchasing souvenirs when you first arrive. You know you’re just going to be awkwardly carrying around a t-shirt and maybe some coasters for 4 hours, and you’re going to slow down the rest of us who just want to pay quickly and get a beer. There is a reason museums put the gift shops at the exit, so BE RESPECTFUL of the thirsty people in line behind you and wait!
