There are so many great dining events this month. I've got a mountain of apples to peel and turn into butter right now, so I'll break this into a couple posts. Here's the first batch of yummy events!

Supper Club Benefitting Atlanta Community Food Bank at Opulent

The owners of Little Alley Steak and Salt Factory Pub have added a new option to the already bustling Historic Roswell restaurant scene.  They closed INC.
