A Food Soiree

Please come out tonight in support of the Sweet Auburn Curb Market’s new extended hours (till 8 p.m.) on Thursdays. Most of the restaurants will be open for business, including the newest and definitely fabulous Bell Street Burritos, which started as a delivery business and a way for a young professor of theology to feed his family. If you are still pining for Tortillas on Ponce, Matt’s burritos are exact replicas of the original, sauce and all.

Also…the first ever evening Urban Picnic at the market sponsored by the Atlanta Street Food Coalition will start promptly at 5 p.m. and many of your favorite food trucks will be on the curb!

Come out to support the market so it can keep moving in the right direction….

Farm Cart and King of Pops

Our friend Christa tipped us off to the above event, the inaugural fundraiser for Burnaway, a new online visual arts magazine, that will feature both the Farm Cart (which now posts its menu online) and King of Pops (plus vodka lemonade with mint) in attendance. Come support food carts this Saturday and remember to bring cash.

Fast Food That Won’t Kill You

The little tricycle that could

Cliff Bostock of Creative Loafing trusts that “Unless you’ve been hiding under a table at Bacchanalia for the last few months, you know that street food has become the latest cause célèbre of Atlanta foodies,” and he is helping to spread the word about tomorrow’s event at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market.

Will Bostock be there?

Will the Mayor and Councilman Kwanza Hall be there again?

Will  the local media show up?

Find out for yourself and enjoy the second Urban Picnic organized by the Atlanta Street Food Coalition in conjunction with the market. We promise you an interesting crowd and some new vendors. Be there! Monthly picnic 11 a.m.-2 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market.
