Sample some of the South’s best offerings during City Winery event

Whether you love Tennessee whiskey or Kentucky bourbon, City Winery has an event that might interest you.

City Winery, which is in Ponce City Market, isn’t limiting your taste buds to just home state spirits, though. You’ll also be able to sample the best of Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina and Texas.

Atlanta's barbecue scene has a loyal following, based on last year's Best of Atlanta voting. Hattie Marie's Texas Style BBQ and Cajun Kitchen claimed the title of best barbecue last year.
