Grillin’ & Chillin’ in Atlanta, Ga

Nothing says summer like good food and good friends. If you’re looking for an event to explore I urge you to check out Grillin’ and Chillin’. The outdoor extravaganza is held at The Park in Emory Point located in Atlanta, Ga. This is the 3rd of 4 events happening in this foodie fundraising series. You don’t want to miss your chance to do something good for your taste buds and your community. All ticket proceeds will go to local charities of the chef’s choice.

This episode of Grillin’ and Chillin’ will feature food inspired by Chef Todd Ginsberg of The General Muir. Chef Muir will be serving up a succulent poultry dish on the Big Green Egg. The Big Green Egg is a kamado- style ceramic charcoal barbecue grill, constructed to bring you the ultimate grilling experience. Also, Mixologist Drew Kitchens of The General Muir will be serving signature drinks to keep the spirits lively. There will be live Jazz as the band “The Mar-Tans” will be performing as well.

Party starts at 6:30pm on June 22nd, free parking is provided in either garage. Advanced online ticket purchase is $25.00 and it’s $35.00 per person at the event. I suggest purchasing a ticket in advance, it is well worth the investment and you have a chance to save $10.00 that could be used to enter the silent auction. A silent auction will be held at the event to auction off a Green Egg MiniMax. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to local organizations as well as the auction proceeds. The Charity of choice for this event will be the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. Big Green Egg, Old Forester, Springer Mountain Farms and Woodford Reserve proudly sponsor Grillin’ and Chillin’. Please venture out and support your local entrepreneurs, if you can’t make this event the last series of Grillin’ and Chillin’ is set to take place July 13th.

Poem “White Boy Privilege” 

My friend sent me a link that made me shed a tear. I was so moved by 8th grader Royce Mann’s delivery of “White Boy Privilege”. Even a child could see the injustice in our System, why can’t everyone else?  Mann’s powerful words won him first place in the competition and I could see why, but could we see change on the rise?? We have to be the change we want to see, we have to take responsibility for our actions and shortcomings, then we have to put a plan in action and follow through on our words. Mann is a leader of the new school and the revolution will be televised. Click the link below to watch the video.
