This Thursday: Happy Hour for Walking with K. Peasey!

What are you doing this Thursday? Oh really? Hmm.  May we suggest alternate plans?

How about joining the awesome folks at the Kyle Pease Foundation at a happy hour for the kickoff of KFP running season at Gordon Biersch Brewery instead?

TODAY: Dtox (by Flywheel) Grand Opening!

TALK ABOUT A HAT TRICK!  

Flywheel and DryBar have always been a dynamic duo in the West Paces shopping center – I mean, what better than a chi chi la la butt-kicking workout, followed by a professional blowout?  I mean, I can’t think of much.

Until I learned that my FAVORITE healthy juice joint opened up right in between them.  It’s basically the best day of my life.

Guests will then proceed into the dining room where they will be greeted by communal tables and a “warm up” meal including Southern Soul Brunswick Stew and Fox Bros. Green Chili Cornbread.

Long before there was Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q and Southern Soul Barbeque, Justin, Jonathan, Griffin and Harrison bonded over their similar background in and passion for smoking the finest quality meats. Both began chopping wood and slow-smoking meats around the same time and have since defined their respective forms of barbecue, from Texas-inspired to traditional Southern, both served with homemade sides and sauces. The so-called “barbecue brethren” have also overcome natural catastrophes and come out on top after much hard work and community support. In 2012, a massive fallen tree rendered Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q’s patio and much of the dining space unusable, but with community support, they were able to fire up the smokers only 48 hours later. Disaster struck Southern Soul Barbeque in 2010 when a massive fire broke out, completely destroying the old Georgia pine building, a historic gas station on St. Simons. With overwhelming support from the tightly-knit local community, they rebuilt to the exact footprint while selling hardwood-smoked barbecue from a food truck in the parking lot. Both the Fox brothers and Griffin and Harrison have attended and participated in events such as the St. Simons Food & Spirit Festival, Atlanta Food & Wine Festival and Big Apple Barbecue.

Seating is limited; to reserve a seat for this exclusive pit master event at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, visit http://gom.xorbia.com/pitmasterdinner. For more information about Southern Soul Barbeque visit http://www.southernsoulbbq.com/.

My mouth is watering just thinking about this…
