Simply the Best, 2007
Last night was the "Best of Atlanta" party, sponsored by Atlanta Magazine. For the 2nd year in a row, the Biscuit was voted "Best Breakfast" by the magazine and we were invited to serve samples. This is a great honor and a great party! If I wasn't working the party, I would probably be there participating as a guest. It's a little pricey ($65/person), but you get to sample food from all of the best restaurants in the city. It's an all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink throw down!
The highlight of the night was meeting some of the members of "Dames Aflame", a burlesque group of the prettiest women you ever saw! They performed with the band Kingsized, a swing band that I first saw performing at East Point's 1st Fall Festival a few years ago. Here's a picture of two of the Dames along with Delia. God bless Showgirls!
It was a very long day-- we all started work yesterday at 5am, and it was amost 11pm when we got home. It's worth it though. I highly recommend everyone put this on their list of "must-attend-events" for 2008!
The rest of the week will be a very hectic one. I'm catering a live broadcast of CWTV's "Black AIDS Awareness" program tomorrow night (did you know that Feb 07 is Black AIDS Day?). Friday morning is the kickoff of the SE Flower Show at the World Congress Center. We'll be there do a cooking demo for a "Good Day Atlanta" segment and I'm also catering breakfast for the cast and crew. It looks like it's going to be another 80 work week- I've already worked 30 and it's only Tuesday!
