Cinnamon sugar Nutella-swirled pumpkin pie pop-tarts. Warm toasted "caramel" coconut gooey chocolate crunch bars. Who needs a hallowed holiday excuse to whip up sinfully delicious treats? Not Tieghan. She's good to go on savories as well. Pictures on Instagram lead to recipes on her Half Baked Harvest blog.
Gather 'round the table at Ted's Montana Grill and share Ted's Thanksgiving Roast Turkey Feast with friends and family this Thanksgiving Day. Whether you take your meal midday, afternoon or evening, Ted's prix fixe Thanksgiving menu runs $25 per person. The all-American meal begins with a first-course choice of side salad, cup of soup or Karen's "Flying D" bison chili. Out next, whole-roasted turkey and gravy with garlic mashed potatoes, herb dressing, buttered carrots, "Aunt Fannie's" squash casserole and cranberry sauce. And there's more to be thankful for -- Ted's famous apple pecan crisp featuring Granny Smith apples drizzled with caramel then baked with a crispy oatmeal-pecan crust and topped with Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream. Children get dibs on a half-sized version of the menu with turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, dressing, buttered carrots, cranberry sauce and a "scratch" cookie for $12. Tuckered out on turkey? Other classics available include bison meatloaf, cedar plank salmon and Delmonico rib-eye. Fill wine glasses with Kendall Jackson chardonnay Vintner's Reserve or Gascon malbec at $30 a bottle. See the full Thanksgiving Day menu online. All Atlanta Ted's restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving Day except for Luckie Street. Call your favorite location for hours and reservations.

Orpheus Brewing is one of more than 30 craft breweries pouring their own unique styles of beer at The Ponce de Leon Beer Festival inside the Yaarab Shrine on Saturday, November 15 from noon-6 p.m. The festival is a stone's throw from Orpheus, which brews its saisons, sours, ales, IPAs and other beer varieties in Midtown near the Atlanta BeltLine and Piedmont Park. By the way, Orpheus Brewing's Atalanta and Lyric ale are now available in cans in area stores. Festival goers can sample multiple beers, rock out to eight bands on two stages, nab vendor freebies and buy chow from food trucks. General admission begins at 1 p.m. VIP ticket holders add a noon entrance privilege plus access to a separate area for sampling special "one-off" (single release) beers. Ticket sales cut off at 1,500 guests to keep the experience more intimate than "brew-tally" crowded. The event is a fundraiser for Shriners Hospitals for Children, which provides children with care for orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate, regardless of a family's ability to pay.
