Hearth Pizza Tavern Pours Berry Cold Cocktails From New Menu

Summers in Atlanta can be real scorchers, and we're already shouting for relief. Luckily, the mixologists at Hearth Pizza Tavern heard our cries and have developed a refreshing new summer drink menu featuring the wonderfully sweet fruits of the season. The Sandy Springs hot spot is now serving up the Strawberry Fields cocktail featuring a muddle of strawberries, cilantro, fresh-squeezed lime juice, simple syrup and Absolut Cilantro vodka. The Orange Fizz brings Svedka Orange Cream Pop vodka together with ginger ale and a slice of orange for a refreshingly cool summer treat. Other bright newcomers to the drink menu include the Hummingbird, abuzz with peach and basil, and the Key Lime Pie martini that packs a Florida vacation in a glass. The St. Rita, featured in Simply Buckhead's May/June "Margarita" section, brings St. Germain to the Tequila Blanco and lime party. The Old Fashioned keeps things classic while the Simply White margarita drips with modern elegance. Can't decide which to try? Stop by on Tuesdays when any of the five martinis on the menu are $5, or visit on Thursdays for the same deal on margaritas. This way, you can try them all without even breaking a sweat (or the bank).

Sunday Funday Just Got Better with Ping-Pong Tournaments at No. 246

Still got that competitive spirit or looking to continue to the weekend fun? Then join in the table tennis action on Sunday afternoons at No. 246. There's a spot for you on the roster when outdoor Ping-Pong play takes over the Decatur restaurant's backyard area from 5-8 p.m. Sign up by emailing Clarke Anderson at Dust off that paddle and get working on those drop shots, lobs and spikes, if you want to win the weekly tournament. This is No. 246, not Wimbledon or the U.S. Open, so chef/co-Owner Drew Belline backs a training table menu of bites and beverages for Ping-Pongers and their guests. No. 246 is open until 10 p.m. on Sunday nights, so stick around afterwards for dinner.

It's summertime in Atlanta, and the city is serving up too much excitement to be sitting on the sidelines. Sunday Funday is taken to a whole new level at No. 246, with nights full of ping-pong play, Italian bites and bubbling brews. Check out their training table menu and get the scoop on all the action in the “A” in this week’s Dish!
