It is on rare occasion that the staff of Good Measure Meals gets to promote eating out, so when we do it’s always for a great cause! Next week is Dining Out for Life, an annual fundraiser for our parent nonprofit, Open Hand. There are over 100 restaurants participating, and all you have to do to get involved is dine out and 20% of your bill goes to Open Hand’s Comprehensive Nutrition Care Program. If you aren’t familiar with our cause, please take the time to check out our mission and the impact we have on community health and education at www.projectopenhand.org .
Just like last year, Jess Parsons and I have decided to host at West Egg Cafe, one of our favorite Atlanta eateries. Being in the food and nutrition industry, we are often drawn to restaurants that truly embody a passion for good eats. West Egg Cafe continues to appeal to our senses as well as creativity, which is why we felt a compelled to once again collaborate with Owners Jennifer and Ben Johnson. They continually introduce fun and quirky concepts that appeal to our need for comfort food while completely wowing our culinary appetites.
We’ll be at West Egg Cafe on Wednesday April 27thbetween 6-9:30PM and we’d love for you to join us and experience everything this fun establishment has to offer! It is lucky for us that Wednesday nights just happens to be West Egg’s special $10 burger and pint night. This deal includes West Egg’s special burger (double patty, American cheese, housemade pickles, on a Holeman & Finch bun) and the choice of any beer or a milkshake for only $10. They’ve got all local beers on tap (Sweetwater, Terrapin, Red Brick), plus a variety of bottled beers. They make their our own softserve ice cream for the milkshakes (and, with a full bar, they do “adult” milkshakes as well!). Speaking of full bar . . . they’ve got some specialty cocktails that are perfect for warmer weather. Jen Johnson’s favorite cocktails are “The Seersucker” – gin, homemade lemonade, basil and the “Maple Mint Julep” – bourbon, maple syrup, mint. You can check out their full menu by clicking here.
We hope that you’ll decide to Dine Out For Life on Wednesday!
