- elmyriachi -


we recently tried out elmyriachi for the first time. it’s the new tex-mex restaurant in downtown kirkwood from the people who run el myr in little five points. they renovated the old mrs winners and added a huge outdoor patio. it looks awesome, you would have no idea it had chicken & biscuit roots.

we enjoyed our outing! their chimichangas were exceptionally tasty, and they had a decent beer and cocktail menu to go along. we ate out on the patio, which was great! it was very spacious with plenty of seating and had a big screen playing the world cup, which was a bonus. all in all, it was a pleasant summer evening. we most definitely will be going back.

quick note, we did not realize the patio allowed smoking. a couple of guys at the table behind us started to smoke, however they saw we had kids and moved to the other side of the patio. so for those interested, there was a family-friendly atmosphere.

check out their menu.

we are so excited that a great coffee shop opened up in downtown kirkwood! taproom coffee opened it’s doors a couple of weeks ago and is the perfect addition to our neighborhood. they serve specialty coffee, craft beer and snack foods (including charcuterie boards from spotted trotter, soft pretzels from holeman & finch and delicious pastries from mae’s bakery.)

the location is very spacious and comfortable. the vintage seating and lighting works well with the reclaimed wood and soft color palette. it was a definitely a relaxing environment for drinking coffee and/or beer.

taproom coffee started as a kickstarter project from the guy who ran the espresso bar at empire state south. we feel very fortunate they chose kirkwood to open up such a cool place. taproom is open from 7am to 10pm and serves counter culture coffee along with a rotating list of 12 craft beers on draft.

on a side note, i had never had a cortado until visiting taproom. i have to say it was one of the better coffee drinks i’ve had! it’s espresso cut with milk, so similar to a cappuccino but less milk. it was quite tasty and highly recommended!

- kirkwood spring fling 2014 -


this weekend is the 12th annual kirkwood spring fling, which is one of our favorite festivals in atlanta! besides being located around the corner from us in historic kirkwood, it is also the first festival where gub sold her craft goods, so it holds a special place in our hearts.

the spring fling features a 5k race on saturday morning, a kids area from 10am-4pm, an open air artist market from 10am-8pm with tons of crafty vendors, beer, food trucks, and live music, as well as a tour of homes and a bbq cook off.

admission to the festival is free and is once again located at bessie branham park. tickets for the tour of homes can be purchased at the festival or at local kirkwood businesses.

on a side note, we designed the volunteer t-shirts this year and think they look great! the design is up above in the header for your viewing pleasure. also be sure to check out photos from 2010 when our home was on the kirkwood tour of homes.
