This week, Piedmont Park began ongoing Beer Garden events, where you can enjoy a happy hour beverage around the park. It may be a little tough to find the spots, as locations and hours vary (why not at least stick to one set of hours?!). The schedule for Beer Garden operations is: Thursdays at Dockside (6 p.m.—9 p.m.), Fridays at the Dog Park (5 p.m. — 8:30 p.m.), Friday and Saturday at the Pool (5 p.m. — 7 p.m.) and Saturdays at Legacy Fountain (5 p.m. — 8 p.m.). Proceeds benefit Piedmont Park.

Taqueria Tsunami, taking over the Toulouse space in Buckhead, has announced an opening date of July 18. The restaurant, open for lunch and dinner, will serve Latin-Asian tacos. They also put a charitable twist on things, donating 5% of their profits to the Red Cross Tsunami Relief Fund. On Facebook, Taqueria Tsunami hints that they are working on opening a second location in Decatur.

Y’all, this cupcake news just won’t quit. Cupcakes are officially the new froyo, with shops popping up everywhere! Smallcakes, a national cupcake chain, is working on building out a shop on Peachtree near Pharr Road.

La Mongerie Bakery is coming soon to Ponce, opening in the same center as MF Sushi.

The Buckhead Theater is now hosting a Thursday night food truck event from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. After ordering from the trucks, diners can eat inside the theater and also purchase drinks from the bar.

WhichWich is opening a new location in the Lenox Food Court, taking over the short-lived Wafflery spot. They expect to be opening in August.

Taqueria del Sol announced that they’ll be bringing the Taqueria love to other cities through franchising. Their first store agreements include Philadelphia, spots in Jacksonville, Gainesville and Orlando, Florida.

Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint has added Monday - Friday delivery service for locations within one mile of the Downtown restaurant (located at 200 Peachtree Street).

The windows went dark this week at Johnny’s Pizza in Decatur. They will reportedly be revamping their concept and opening as a cafe called Rocket 88.

Ace’s in Kirkwood has re-opened, now operating as a gastropub called Jak’s All In. The restaurant is family-friendly before 9:30 p.m., but will still allow smoking in the late night hours.

Didja hear that Richard Blais is opening a new restaurant!? Or that Garry Mennie has left Table 1280? Or that Kwanza Hall has introduced food truck and late bar hours legislation? If you don't know, now you know.
