Yeah, but what drugs are they serving?

This, from Meryl Arnett at Rosebud, sounds like fun, although the idea of 160 people in tie-dye is kinda frightening.

Rosebud (formerly Food 101 Morningside) is once again bringing together delicious food and great music, two things Chef and Owner Ron Eyester feels very passionate about, with the third annual Jerry Garcia Tribute Dinner.  Due to its tremendous popularity, Rosebud is hosting a two-night run on both August 5 and 6 at 7 p.m. to accommodate the demand.  The restaurant will only be seating reservations for the tribute dinner on these two nights.

The dinner was first held in 2006 and brought in more than 160 people to the restaurant (maximum capacity).   The success of this dinner encouraged Chef Ron to continue finding ways to combine his two passions with additional tribute dinners for artists, such as Johnny Cash and James Brown.  Each dinner takes a relaxed approach to pairing food with music.  “I try to be playful about the food.  I think some people take it all too seriously.  Now, I take the ingredients seriously, but it’s got to be fun” says Ron.

This year’s five course pre-fixe menu will feature a selection of dishes inspired by the lyrics of Chef Ron’s favorite Grateful Dead songs.  Each dish will focus on utilizing fresh, local foods to compliment Garcia’s creative tunes.  The dinner will also continue its tradition of offering live music during and after the meal.  This year, however, Chef Ron is taking his local mantra a step further by featuring two bands local to the Morningside community.  Webster Humpage is playing on August 5 and Parker Smith on August 6.

Guests are encouraged to dress for the show in their best tie-dye; Birkenstocks are optional.  Although a different band plays each night, the same menu will be offered on both August 5 and 6.  Showtime is at 7 p.m.  The five course menu is $49 per person plus tax and gratuity (alcohol not included).  This dinner has sold out each year so reservations are required and can be made by calling 404-347-9747.
