Yes, we know Oktoberfest ended on October 4th, but we think fall's seasonal beers should really be celebrated through December. (Especially since crisp weather doesn't hit Atlanta until October, anyway.) We find no better way to enjoy a sparkling autumn afternoon than with a hand-crafted beer, preferably on a patio. From the Max Pumpkin Wit at Max Lager's to a chocolate beer from A.B.C., here's our call on the best seasonal brews, churned up right here in Atlanta.
PGA stud Stewart Cink is a Twittering-fanatic and his 900,000-plus followers constantly get the scoop on what the man likes to eat. Seeing as his tweets (@stewartcink) are funny and well coined, Editor Jonathan Baker convinced the 2009 British Open Champion (and local foodie) to blurb about the golfers' favorite culinary spots in his hometown. From places to drink out of the Claret Jug to how not to lose your wife on date night--Stewart Cink's top 5 Atlanta restaurants. Written, we might add, by Stewart himself.
For the past few years, we Atlantans have known our city is a culinary hotbed of underrated-but-damn-good restaurants. And, thanks to a few James Beard awards, an Iron Chef slayer and Top Chef stud, it seems that the rest of the country is taking notice. This might be why restaurateurs (and a mixologist) in the consumption-Mecca metropolitan of New York have been transplanting their namesake digs, and themselves, here in the Hotlanta.
If there is one thing Atlanta City Editor Jonathan Baker (left, with stud chef Shaun Doty and super-producer Butch Walker) likes to wax about, it's food. To get you, dear readers, pumped for our Best of Citysearch Restaurants edition, Mr. Baker delivers his Atlanta food obsessions in 10 different categories.

Ah, you're looking for first date ideas. We've been there. The awkward, job-interview-like chance for a shot at love can be rough on all involved. A few things to keep in mind: First, formal is awkward but casual is comfortable; second, sharing food is sexy; third, fun activities are always better than a movie. Still confused? Use our cheat sheet of super-cool, unique and not-too-formal ideas for first dates in Atlanta, and you'll be well on your way to a second date (or base, as the case may be).
What in the hell is ?fro-yo?? And, if it's just frozen yogurt, what's with the surfer lingo? The California terminology and yogurt style has finally, officially landed in Hotlanta. For those not familiar, the yogurt is light and tart (not your 80s childhood's TCBY) and, while you have the option for candy-sweet toppings, there is plenty of fresh fruit to choose from. It's a dessert that somehow makes you feel lighter after eating it. Froyo's only true opponent is old-school ice cream. We say there's a place for both--here are our favorites.
Don't let Editor Jonathan Baker's gritty rock `n? roll demeanor fool you--the man likes to shop.

Let the guess work stop; we give you the best picks for both.
