Atlanta Food & Wine Festival 2012

This past weekend, thousands of hungry, thirsty, curious people gathered within a few blocks in Midtown Atlanta to celebrate the 2nd Annual Atlanta Food & Wine Festival.  Visiting chefs, writers and bartenders from all over the country came to join forces with Atlanta food folks to create compelling panel discussions, delicious drinks and incredible food from intimate white tablecloth dinners in Atlanta restaurants to fried chicken and barbecue in the outdoor tents.

Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q was delighted to sponsor the Bar-B-Q line-up that included local Atlanta bbq talent as well as folks from around the South.  Our friends Pat Martin from Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint in Nolensville, TN, Rodney Scott from Scott's Bar-B-Que in Hemingway, SC, and Sam Jones from The Skylight Inn in Ayden, NC drove in, set up the charcoal burner and smokers and stayed up all night watching the hogs so that Atlantan's could sample their incredible flavors.

Always making sure that Jim 'N Nick's Atlanta shines brightly, Brian Lyman and his team hauled the rig into Midtown, set up, decorated and served up smoked pork tacos and spicy corn on the cob.  They always display true hospitality to festival guests as well as all of the participating and visiting BBQ professionals.  Thanks so much to Brian and everyone who worked hard at this year's festival!
