Toscano & Sons Italian Market sits unassumingly in Westside quietly providing Atlantans with some of the city’s most consistent panini.  For the better part of the past five years, the tiny emporium and Italian deli has offered up tasty sandwiches in addition to a variety of worthwhile cheeses, wines, and prepared Italian classics.

When owners Kathy Boehmer and John Reed opened Toscano & Sons back in 2006, Westside was a neighborhood waiting to happen.  Even so, already established eateries like West Egg Café and Star Provisions made for a crowded marketplace.  Yet in the shadow of these more noted restaurants, Toscano and Sons has been chugging along ever since.  Regardless of the dramatic rise in nearby eating options, as a value proposition alone, the pressed sandwiches at T&S easily best anything in the vicinity.

Hop City Beer And Wine Opens In The Brickworks … Free Drinks Tomorrow!!!! 2

Posted by Foodie Buddha on April 01, 2009

Hot on the tails of the newest 5 Seasons location, Hop City Beer is opening in the Brickworks, that new complex over on the West End of the city.  Though I’m not a beer fan by any stretch of the imagination (the other day, I had my first one in 5 years), I can’t wait to see what this place packs.

On Thursday, April 2 (that’s tomorrow), there is a grand opening celebration.  The store touts itself as “Atlanta’s first craft beer specialty store.”  Basically, this is a liquor store without the liquor … and a WHOLE HECK of a lot more beer.  According to the email they sent out, they will stock over 1,000 flavors of beer and more than 600 types of wine.  For those who like to get adventurous, they also carry home brewing equipment.

As for the party itself – there will be a plethora of free beer samples, live music, and some grub.  It runs from 6-9 and is free to everyone.  CL ran a more in depth preview on the 30th. As of this writing, their website is not up.

Hop City Beer Address & Information:
1000 Marietta St. NW Atlanta, GA 30318 // P: 404.667.0497 // Hop City Website
