Celebrate “Pastured Poultry Week” at Local Restaurants
Georgians for Pastured Poultry, an alliance promoting the use of high-welfare, pasture-raised poultry in Georgia, has created Pastured Poultry Week to raise awareness of the benefits of cooking using pastured poultry. Pastured poultry is a sustainable agriculture technique that asks farmers to raise poultry outside on a pasture instead of being confined indoors. From June 11 to 17, local restaurants will serve pastured poultry on their menus every day next week.
“During Pastured Poultry Week, our chef partners are helping us inspire consumers with their cooking techniques and recipes while also showing diners why factory-farmed chicken is inferior not just in taste, but also in terms of human health, animal welfare, and the environment,” says Leah Garcés, U.S.A. Director of Compassion in World Farming, the lead founding member of Georgians for Pastured Poultry.
One of Flavors’ partners, Ecco, is one of the participating restaurants. To see a complete list, please visit http://georgiansforpasturedpoultry.org.
Don’t miss your chance to see 2006’s Tony Award-winning musical, “Jersey Boys.” This musical tells the story of how four blue-collar kids became one of pop music’s greatest acts: The Four Seasons. You’ll have the chance to hear the band’s hit songs “Sherry,” “Oh What a Night,” "Walk Like a Man" and many more, live.
This show is one that you'll want to stand up and sing along with, no matter when you were born. The New York Times said, "The crowd goes wild!" and crowds all across the country have gone wild for the story of Frankie Vallie and his then-revolutionary style of music.
This show’s last performance at the Fox is June 10; so get your tickets soon. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit foxtheatre.org.

In the mood to try a new ice cream flavor? Then consider visiting Seed Kitchen & Bar’s patio on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. to try Thai Tea ice cream. Chef Doug Turbush of Seed and High Road Craft Ice Cream, a company that serves what USA Today called "the South’s best artisan ice cream," collaborated to create this innovative flavor. Eventually, this flavor will be sold in Whole Foods throughout the Southeast, but come try it out before it hits store shelves.
Join the party and enjoy Tamarind Thai Tea Cocktails, light hors d'oeuvres from Chef Turbush and, of course, Thai Tea Ice Cream Floats!
