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.

Toscano & Sons Deadline to Preorder New Harvest Olive Oil Is Almost Here!

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

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