Also on Saturday and Sunday, get your Japan fix in Duluth at @japanfest_atlanta with lots of Japanese food to be had including one of our favorites, okonomiyaki by @okyakiatl


On Saturday, if you are into BBQ, you really should stop by @pontoonbrewing in Dunwoody for a BBQ Luau. @keenans_pit_bbq is cooking up a whole hog, @secretpintbbq will have hot honey Havarti as one of five smoked sausage links and @keeblerskitchenbbq will be bringing their ribs and famous banana pudding. These folks are currently the royalty of BBQ pop-ups…get there early and expect lines. 

On Sunday, @nfaburger in Dunwoody hosts a breakfast taco mashup. The tacos will have brisket smoked by @gcbbq‘s Robert Owens, pickled onions, scrambled eggs, hatch green chiles on flour tortillas made by @casaroblesroswell’s Laura Orellana Martin and a side of NFA Burger’s beef tallow tater tots. Also on Sunday, @adobo.atl and @sevenfingersbakedgoods are hosting a ticketed Filipino brunch with two seatings in a yet to be disclosed downtown location. 


@seoulchikinat is playing a rare solo gig at @boggssocial in the West End on Saturday night while on Sunday @sosofedatl kicks off her residency at @fullcommissionatl in Grant Park on Sunday-Tuesdays. Finally,  @gweilodumplings will be serving up dumplings, curry and kimchi glizzy dogs at @beerwildheaven in Avondale Estates.
