    What’s happening this weekend in Atlanta?

    This weekend is the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival — a celebration of the very best in Southern food, beverages and traditions. The four-day festival will be held May 30 through June 2 in Midtown Atlanta. About 9,000 people are expected to wine and dine with some of the most respected chefs and mixologists from the South who will be hosting cooking and cocktail demos, seminars, tasting tents and panel discussions. Among them will be Chris Hastings and Frank Stitt of Birmingham, Ala.; John Besh of New Orleans; Mike Lata and The Lee Bros. of Charleston; Ashley Christenson and Scott Crawford from North Carolina; and a slew of local Atlanta talent — Asha Gomez, Duane Nutter, Gerry Klaskala, Greg Best, Kevin Gillespie, Shaun Doty and Steven Satterfield, to name just a few.

    One of the best things about the AFWF is there are tons of events and classes during the weekend so you’re sure to find plenty to fill your dance card. Thursday night, check out the PIG OUT: Tailgate Style Party at JCT. Kitchen — it’s the AFWF’s signature party featuring some of the South’s best tailgating foods from chefs Ford Fry, Joe Schafer, Derek Emerson, Brandon McGlamery, Kelly English and Chris Shepherd. $65, May 30, 7 p.m., 1198 Howell Mill Road.

    If you’d rather be somewhere with a party atmosphere, head to the Rathbun’s Watch List Party hosted by brothers and chefs Kent and Kevin Rathbun. They’ll be hosting 12 star Southern chefs and two mixologists “to watch” who’ll be serving up tasty treats and cocktails. These are the chefs the Rathbun brothers considers some of their favorite up and comers, so you know this is going to be a good time. $75, 7:30 p.m., 112 Krog St.

    If you have to choose just one event to attend, make it the tasting tents. These are where you can wine and dine your way through more than 70-plus culinary stations from restaurants, chefs and mixologists throughout the South — each rotating in and out daily. Themed tasting “trails” ensure you’ll chow down on Southern favorites like fried chicken, craft beer, barbecue, pork and bourbon.

    What’s new in New York City?

    Bruce and Eric Bromberg — they're the geniuses behind the Blue Ribbon Restaurants in New York and Las Vegas — just opened Blue Ribbon Beer Garden in New York on May 22. It's the group's first barbecue and beer venture and it's located on a spacious outdoor terrace in the Lower East Side overlooking Allen Street. Expect a well-curated beer list (Hitachino White Ale from Japan, large-format Saison DuPont Farmhouse Ale from Belgium and small-batch Sorachi Ace by Brooklyn Brewery, to name a few), as well as wines by the carafe. And you know the food is going to be good — so far the menu features plates of barbecue (you can choose from BBQ hen, BBQ ribs or market veggie of the day) with bean salad, coleslaw and cornbread for just $15, or bar snacks like pork rinds and boiled peanuts for $3.
