On the food front, nothing topped Swifts Attic and their ceviche of scallops topped with cucumber sorbet - definitely the group favorite.

The offering was a cheddar & jalapeno biscuit stuffed with a Georgia shrimp salad, peppered bacon and served with a slice of pickled okra. Love it or hate it, you can't call it Southern without okra being involved. We loved it!
And the libations! Oh my, what a selection of wonders to choose from.
Charleston Mix (to die!) and the exotic flavor of the Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine. I mean, it doesn't get more Southern hip than a fabulous moonshine cocktail. And this concoction had me at my Southern heart when mixed with sweet tea, lemonade, and a sprig of mint. I could get into some serious trouble with this one!
I hit their stage more than once:
Considering I'm not a beer connoisseur, I really enjoyed the fruity flavor of the "Miranda" Goose Island Beer. And the Vixen vodka was one sweet sip of goodness. These crafty ladies devised a plan, putting their own spin on vodka, while vacationing together on St. Simon's Island. This trio single-handedly created a vodka revolution that brought vodka out of the men's clubs and into the hands of the ladies! Thanks, gals!
And so the day came to an end, and the staff packed up their goods - still smiling, still having a good time.
I think this photo sums it up nicely.
In its third year, The Atlanta Food + Wine Festival looks to be an ongoing event held during the first weekend June. Let's hope so!
