The Hunger Games is the first book in a series penned by Suzanne Collins.

Hunger Games Mall Tour
Actors from the upcoming film The Hunger Games greeted eager fans at Lenox Mall on Tuesday, March 6th.
From what I do know about the show, Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) was obsessed with Manolo Blahnik shoes. She gravitated towards stiletto heels like a junkie loves crack cocaine. What is it about the shoes that makes a girl go ga-ga?
While I'll probably never understand the unique bond between a woman and her shoe rack, I was able to spot some interesting footwear and some outstanding bling at the Hypnotiq Harmonie 'Summer and the City' party at the W Hotel Buckhead. Author Candace Bushnell was in town for an exclusive party to promote her new book, a prequel to the SATC books entitled, "Summer and the City: A Carrie Dairies Novel".
Believe it or not, I didn't get a picture of Candace Bushnell's shoes - but I'm sure they were uh, "fierce!"
Since then, I've made it through two movies, tons of pool parties and even some dates where the "which character from SATC do you think I am" has come up. FYI, nobody wants to be called a Samantha to their face on a first date.

For my first sampling of the night, I decided to try the Candy Heart, a chocolate liqueur, vodka-laced martini. At first glance it looks like any other chocolate concoction until you see the bartender pour this thick, red potion containing strawberry puree and whipped cream on the corner of the glass. The heavy crimson mix retreats to the bottom, but leaves a red spot that transforms into a rustic heart once a stirrer is drug through its center. How clever is that? Aesthetics aside, the Candy Heart is a rich, cocoa-infused mash up of party chic and nostalgia. Taking the first sip, the creamy libation taste less like a martini and more like melted neapolitan ice cream. For anyone who loves the tri-flavored ice cream, is at its absolute best when it starts to melt and the chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavors start to merge. Once you reach the bottom of the glass, you're left with a tasty treat of the fresh strawberry mixture that surprisingly tastes like pure candy on the finish. While it may not be the most masculine of drinks, this is a sure fire for a girls night out or a sure fire conversation starter and possibly as one guy told me while at the party that night, LPR - liquid panty remover.

Unless you've been living in a (bat) cave, The Green Hornet, is the next hero film to hit the theaters. Based off the original series, The Green Hornet chronicles the crime-fighting adventures of a dashing newspaper publisher Britt Reit (Seth Rogen) as he dons his alter ego, the Green Hornet alongside his martial arts expert sidekick, Kato (Jay Chou). The dynamic duo uses wit, a wealth of resources and Kato's kick-butt fighting skills along with their custom muscle car: The Black Beauty to bring the bad guys to justice
The Black Beauty, a customized 1965 Chrysler Imperial sports an impressive arsenal of weapons including two 30-caliber machines guns mounted on the hood, a flame thrower and two shotguns with bean bags rounds in its grill and eight sidewinder missiles mounted within the front fender and four additional missiles mounted in the rear fender. In the production of the film the studio created 29 versions of the vehicle, to handle all high speed chases featured in the film.
The car visit is part of a nation-wide promotional tour from Columbia Pictures and Hardee's restaurants. The Green Hornet arrives in theaters on January 14, 2011.
Bacon has its own holiday?
Yup, September 4, 2010 is International Bacon Day. It was apparently devised by some college students in Colorado in 2004 (according to
the all knowing tome of know-it-all Wikipedia) and its spread like wildfire ... or hot bacon grease across the globe.
What exactly are you supposed to do on IBD, just eat bacon.
Purina, the creator of Beggin' Strips is hosting The Beggin' Bacon Bash this Saturday in Cincinati, Ohio and picked bacon aficionado and Top Chef Season Six fan favorite, Chef Kevin Gillespie as its spokesperson. Gillespie is the Executive Chef of Woodfire Grill here in Atlanta and keeps some variation of the our favorite food on the menu.
It seems that Gillespie's choice in sponsors ruffled some feathers though. Yesterday eater.com posted a spicy little rant about Kevin hawking dog food. Granted, it feels a little left field-ish for him to promoting an event from a pet food manufacturer, but really, the mighty fallen? I say let Kevin's food speak for him, and more importantly - let the man make his bacon ... and by that, I mean money.
Earlier this week, I spoke with Kevin via Skype about the Bacon Day and how he plans on spending Sept. 4th.
