5 Seasons 6th Annual Giant Pumpkin Tapping!

6th Annual Giant Pumpkin Tapping!  

Thursday, November 1st

It is SCARY to think that Halloween is already here. This fall seems to be just flying by! And as you know we're always ready to celebrate a new season at the drop of a hat. So we'll be ushering in the cool weather with our 6th Annual Tapping of the Great Gourd! 
This time every year we release our Great Pumpkin Ale (we're always waiting on the Great Pumpkin). We brewed it with over 400 lbs of fresh, local, organic pumpkins. For Thursday we actually fill a HUGE pumpkin weighing over 300 lbs with the beer, then drive a tap directly into it and then pour the beer straight out of the pumpkin! It's a lot of fun. We'll tap at 5 Westside at 7:55 PM.

Deadline to Preorder New Harvest Olive Oil Is Almost Here!
Just a quick reminder that the deadline to preorder the new harvest, freshly pressed EVOO from the estate of Fattoria Valacchi located in the heart of Chianti, Tuscany is this Thursday, November 1st (we extended the date a couple days).  We must have payment at the time of preorder to guarantee that you receive the olive oil. We cannot order without payment.  All preorder sales are final.

We'll have limited quantities of the oil after it comes in for general sales in the store.  This olive oil is available in 250ml (8.8 oz) and 500ml (17 oz) quantities and you can either supply your own container(s) or purchase bottles from us. Additionally, if you want to purchase a 5 liter tin, like the ones we receive the oil in, you can do that also.  Pricing as follows:
250ml -- $12
500ml -- $23
5 ltr tin - $230 (5 ltr tins only available during pre-order)

If you've never experienced the exquisite pleasure of the first press of olive oil, you're in for a huge treat!  With the upcoming holidays, this is a great gift for the foodie in your life or anyone who appreciates great olive oil.

This oil is not available anywhere else in the United States; or anywhere outside Italy, for that matter. We have an exclusive arrangement with the estate.

So, if you want to make sure you get some of this amazing fresh pressed olive oil, order now.  To order, you can either come by the store, call us at 404-815-8383, or email us at kathy@toscanoandsons.com.


Olives are being harvested as we speak and the oil should arrive by the latter half of November.

6pack bottles: $10.49
Segueway into Autumn with this week's

Wine Selections!
Salia de Finca Sandoval - A blend of Garnacha and Syrah as lively as a Pinot Noir making it perfect for ushering in the fall.  A complex bouquet of red berries, cherry, rose and baking spices leads to a palate of dark chocolate and raspberry pie ending on a seductive note of spice. Another knockout from Spain!  
Naudin-Ferrand Bourgogne Aligoté Vieilles Vignes - Imbuing the mind and the senses with the essence of a crisp September morning , this wine will enhance your autumn afternoon brunch!  Mouthwatering flavors of stone fruit snap in this zesty offering from Burgundy. "Vieilles Vignes" means "old vines" in French suggesting a subtle complexity not often found in white wines at this price! 

Remember - Home Brewing Class every Saturday from 11am to 2pm.  Call Andi at 404.350.9998 to set up a reservation!

October 19 - November 24, 2012

By drawing upon more traditional concepts of the South and all the while bucking those traditions, these 9 thoughtful artists reveal an honest look at contemporary life at 'home'. Please join us in celebrating the opening reception of the exhibition, Friday, October 19th, from 7-10 pm.

Optimistic Entrepreneur Brings Fish House to West Midtown


Optimistic Entrepreneur Brings Fish House to West Midtown


The Optimist Restaurant
Ford Fry has brought his optimism about the West Midtown dining scene to another Howell Mill Road location. The Optimist is located just up the street from his other west side eatery, JCT Kitchen. The new space, located inside a former ham warehouse, has been transformed into what is apparently the designer’s idea of a fish camp. Now, I have been to a couple fish camps in the past and the good news for us is that this beautifully designed and fastidiously detailed space is nothing like any of the dank fish camps I have ever visited. 

Visit David Atlanta Magazine - The Optimist  for the full article.

Emily Amy Gallery presents Ashley Anderson: Shinobi Marilyn

Ashley Anderson, Shinobi Marilyn, 30" x 30", Gold acrylic on paper
July 28 - September 1, 2012
EMILY AMY GALLERY is pleased to present our summer buy local feature for 2012, Ashley Anderson’s newly completed series, Shinobi Marilyn. The exciting new series consists of works in a variety of media including painting, drawing, digital collage, and animated gifs. The body of work was initially inspired by an online discovery of imagery embedded in a classic sega video game from 1987, entitled “Shinobi.” Convinced the appearance of Marilyn Monroe in the classic game was a posthumous tribute to Andy Warhol created by the game designer in 1980's Japan, Anderson sought to explore the subject further.

ŚWIT BAKERY AND CAFE IS SHVEET!

Posted by The Lazy Susan in Foodie and tagged with , , ,, , , , 

Banana Nutella Tartine on Farm Bread, chicken sausage and latte
My new favorite spot to grab a light breakfast, a lunchtime sandwich or a spot of tea while I write. Świt (break of dawn in Polish) just landed on the Westside a couple of months ago and is already garnering a loyal following among the residents as well as Westside businesses. Unlike the popular Octane across the street, Świt is quiet, bright and inviting. This European bakery and cafe serves up fresh baked breads, pastries, coffees, teas and sandwiches from the old country.  They take pride in the craftsmanship of their breads and baked goods which is evident upon first bite into any of their tasty treats.
Make sure to try this little gem the next time you’re in the Westside district.  Bring a good book and sip a cup of tea with cookies on the couch, plug in your computer and blog away (free wifi) at the community table or enjoy a sandwich or a pastry on the patio while you soak in the sun.  Świt Bakery and Cafe, a little bit of Europe in the heart of the South.

Location

Intersection of Howell Mill and Marietta St, next to 5 Seasons Brewery.

Operating Hours

Monday-Friday — Open from 7:30am to 5:00pm
Saturday — Open from 8:00am to 5:00pm
Sunday — Open from 9:00am to 4:00pm
