Game Night and Grilled (Pimento) Cheese

This is so good that we’ve been twice – Game Night at West Egg.  Every Thursday night, West Egg cranks down the volume of business (which I’m sure they hate but we love) and they load up their large table in the front with games.  The kitchen gets all creative and makes a different grilled cheese every week – I had bacon jam and pimento cheese and OMG it was sinful!  Pictured below is what I noshed on the first time we went – their famous PB&J where the ‘B’ stands for burger and the ‘P’ does not stand for peanut but rather pimento cheese.  Highly recommend it and the mac and cheese!

Family Date Night….with wine!

Centennial Olympic Park Date Night

In the next month or so, Centennial Olympic Park will be all aglow with Christmas lights and the ice skating rink will be installed.  Do the thing that most men don’t do and plan ahead!  I’m here to help you and make you look good.  Get your Groupon for a fantastic date night at park – SkyView!  For a fun, festive night, Centennial Olympic Park is the place to be and it starts with today’s deal find:

  • $23 for Date Night for two with chocolates ($37 value)

For dinner before, try Park Bar – great burgers, good drinks and amazing location!  I tried to be healthy when we went and ordered a chicken sandwich while my date ordered a burger.  After tasting his, I wish I had ordered a burger.  My sandwich was good, but his was one of the best burgers I have ever tasted!  After your burger enjoy the night views if the city and chocolates.

Happy dating!

Valentine’s Day Alert

<Insert theme music for Jaws> It’s almost here – Valentine’s Day is a week away. AAAAaaaaaahhhhhhHHH!

No but seriously.  Go make a reservation or buy those tickets or book that weekend stay.  NOW!

I will post a few Valentine’s Date Night ideas between now and the 12th (because let’s face it, after the 12th you might as well plan a romantic dinner at home and a coupon book for good deeds you probably should already be doing for her).

Date night idea #1:

Does your girl like live music?  Well do I have the date night for you:  Chris Cauley at Eddie’s Attic.  Chris performs regularly at Buckhead church if you want to sample beforehand.  And it should be all super romantic because his better half is supposed to be there as well so I’m sure there will be some songs to her.

Dinner at Iberian Pig is a must and right around the corner – literally.

Enjoy!

The Second Hardest Date to Create

After Valentine’s Day is New Years Eve on the list of hardest dates to create.  Fear not.  We are here to help.

The most fun I ever had on a New Year’s Eve was when I wasn’t herding cats in a big group.  It was me and my date at an open bar party at Maggiano’s.  No one else to worry about or manage or babysit.  So my tip for this date: Just plan something for you and your better half that suits both of your personalities and don’t try to go to everything or make a big group ordeal of it.

I think a night time view of the city would be so romantic from the new Ferris wheel – SkyView.  Couple that with a yummy dinner before and you have yourself a night.  Park Bar is walking distance and has amazing food and a great selection of drinks.  I’d recommend the Hot Mess or Scotsdale Chicken – both VERY tasty!

Tip:  SkyView is open until 1:00 a.m. for New Years Eve only so you could go after dinner just keep in mind that cabs are hard to come by this night.

Looking for an out-of-the-box meal with International flare?  Try the Iberian Pig (Spanish cuisine) in Decatur or Cardamom Hill (Indian fare) on Northside Dr.  Check out this write up on Cardamom in The Globe and Mail.

The two most important things to remember when planning this evening:  make reservations and don’t drink and drive.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Buckhead: Fit for a King
