Yelp elites were treated to a delicious, Southern, comforting evening at South City Kitchen Vinings! Over 60 of had a separate dining room and the heated patio all to ourselves.
Kassie and Joy wo-manned the LeahAndMark.com photobooth with snappy skill. Big hats, feather fans and even dinosaurs were on hand for props. (Remember that dinosaur walk-on in Gone with the Wind?)
Monday Night Brewing and Red Hare Brewing held down the hops. Sweet, Southern songstress Juliana Finch rocked our socks, and even sang a song that mentioned Yelp! Photographer Heather Croas captured it all on film! See ALL photos here!
The evening began with passed hors d'oeuvres. Grilled Holman&Finch crostini with cheddar pimento cheese and crispy SCK country ham, and 'Cuffs and Buttons' - Fried LA oysters, oyster and Southern Comfort BBQ sauce.
Before we could lick our lips, the buffet station opened and our
eyes welled up. "Kentuckyaki" glazed slow smoked chicken wings with sea
island benne seeds, fried green tomatoes with goat cheese, sweet pepper
coulis and basil, low and slow Pork BBQ with scallion grit cakes, house
bbq sauce, coleslaw, and roasted spaghetti squashpuppies with
Mississippi comeback sauce. PHEW. Chef Blake soothed, satisfied and
knocked it out of the park, and the staff was ON TOP of everything! SCKV
generously provided four $50 gift cards for raffling, and a dining discount for
those who stayed after the party – Of which, there were many!
Frankly, my dears, it was a lovely evening!
