Anniversary Specials at Anteprima

Andersonville's masterful regional Italian restaurant, Anteprima, is celebrating its seventh birthday. Naturally, they are honoring the occasion by offering $7 specials through May 24. These are dishes that have been mainstays since opening day, and for good reason. Get there and feast on grilled octopus, grilled polenta, antipasti, orecchiette, and housemade ravioli, all for laughably low prices. 


Tiki-themed Pop-up at Sable Kitchen & Bar

Tiki culture is so hot right now. It's the new cupcake. Embracing the tiki obsession and the fascination with pop-up concepts, Sable Kitchen & Bar's Mike Ryan has instated a "Cocktails in Motion" series, wherein he "pops up" every weekend with themed drinks on the heated, plush patio in front of the hotel. Currently available from 6:00 p.m. until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, Ryan kicks off his series with tiki drinks, which include house creations and inspired classics. In the future, look for expanded days, new themes, and food from executive chef Heather Terhune.
