In the News: John Lewis in The Bluff

Our friend Courtney Hampson at Palmetto Bluff made the trek to Charleston this summer to check out the Lewis Barbecue and Revelry Brewing collaboration for The Bluff magazine. She braved the heat and was treated to a satisfying plate of John Lewis signature brisket in return. Here’s what she had to say.

Thanks Courtney!

    ByrdHouse Travels :: Atlanta + Athens

    I’ll take any excuse for a road trip, but add in live music and great restaurants, and I’d be hard-pressed to find anything that makes me happier. Earlier this month, I hit the road for a few days in Atlanta where I saw Phish for 2 nights + caught up on what some of the city’s best restaurants are putting out. I had an amazing summer tomato tart at Watershed, and most likely the BEST burger on the planet at JCT Kitchen–bacon jam, whipped blue cheese + truffle frites…good God. Hotlanta’s got it going on.

    Then we headed up the road a ways to Athens, where we detoxed at The Graduate Hotel (a cute + quirky little spot that also houses The Foundry music venue, where we stood shoulder to shoulder with Michael Stipe, watching bluesman Shuggie Otis tear it up on the guitar). We hit up Hugh Acheson’s famed 5 & 10 and The National–two iconic Athens spots. I personally loved 5& 10 the best…has such a great vibe and I had a pasta with smoked fish that I will never forget.

    We also mixed in a little fun at Creature Comforts Brewing Co. and the rooftop at the Georgia Theater. Good stuff!
