It’s finally starting to feel like Spring around here! Spring events and festivals are popping up all over, and was happy to be invited to give away a pair of grand tasting tickets to Toast of the Town this Thursday at the Georgia Aquarium. I attended the event last year and a number of restaurants I’ve had on the blog will be participating, including Le Vigne,  One Flew South, Pacci, Serpas, and Spice Market. Full details are below.

For the ticket giveaway, please leave a comment below with your favorite wine varietal (pinot noir, zinfandel etc.) and please include a valid e-mail address. Ticket pickup is in Midtown Atlanta.
