Cocktails for Community this Saturday showcases some of Atlanta’s star bartenders
Booze followers should know that a sizable chunk of Atlanta’s mixological talent will be in one place this Saturday— Love is Love Farm at Gaia Gardens in Decatur—crafting drinks for charity.
MARTA pilots farmers market pop-up next Friday
Starting this Friday, the West End MARTA station will be home to a pop-up farmstand, showcasing produce from urban farms in Southwest Atlanta. The stand, which will operate every Friday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. until early October, is a pilot program that MARTA hopes to duplicate across its other 37 stations in Atlanta. The market will also double the value of SNAP EBT dollars for shoppers with food stamps.
What I learned taking the food stamp challenge
The rules are simple. You can spend only the equivalent of your state’s average weekly SNAP allowance, which at the time in Georgia was $33.98. You can’t accept any outside food or eat restaurant meals, and, except for condiments, can’t use anything already in your pantry or refrigerator.
