I had read about Pinewood Tippling Room when it opened in 2012, in the boom of cocktail bars that opened that summer.  What is a “tippling room”, you may ask?  To tipple is “to drink (liquor) especially continuously in small amounts” – making this a place to drink, slowly.  So, it’s  a bar.  A bar […]


La Oaxaquena Tacqueria has been on my “list” since the original paper list that was in the trunk of my car, back in 2006.  But Jonesboro is just not a place that we often get to.  Today, while we were wandering around on the south side of Atlanta, I declared (silently, to myself, in case […]
