Last week was the offical celebration of  Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week. Unfortunately I couldn’t experience it live for the week because I went to NYC for a press trip…but before I left I got to attend an event to kick-off the celebration. YP formerly known as Yellow Pages, hosted a great event in downtown Atlanta at this place called Max Lager’s.

Myself and selected bloggers and media influncers were invited to a great mixer night of food and drink hand picked by my blogger friend Erica of EatingwithErica. She is a YP Foodie Ambassador and she helped host this current event for Atlanta Restaurant Week.

THE FOOD

 

Lots of soul food presented at this place. I had no idea, I never been and I was shocked on the food selections. We got to taste an array of soul food southern dishes and below are the buffet style meals we indulged in.

The meal was delicious. Definitely gave me a southern homecooked meal vibe. Delicious. I wasn’t expecting this kind of meal coming from a brewery place!

Me + My Boyfriend Brandon

I invited my boyfriend Brandon to this event. Ha…its still very new but I had to let him come out and see how it feel to go to a blogger/media event. He enjoyed the food. There also was a nice nice open bar (hint the drinks in our hand). Lots of fresh brewed crafted beer and cocktails.

Me + YP Food Ambassador Erica (EatingWithErica.com)

Thank you Erica for inviting me to this exclusive press event. I truly enjoyed my first experience at Max Lager’s. YP mission is correct with #MakeEverydayLocal Campaign. Eating at chain spots are cool, but I want to do better supporting the local homegrown restaurants and eateries in my own city. I am always in the downtown ATL area and its a big city to explore and of course find new places to eat! I am glad I was able to discover this gem (not hidden) and I am inspired even more to eat local regularly.
