RED Quick Bite #60: Our Cameraman’s Take on Wrecking Bar Brewpub Brunch

Welcome to Atlanta, Georgia and the 5th Anniversary of the JeffGallowayHalfMarathonWeekend! It’s our post-race brunch celebration... continued!

EAT

This week, it’s my cameraman’s take on The Wrecking Bar Brewpub brunch.  He had the Pastrami Hash with perfectly cooked pastrami, peppers, onions, potatoes and egg. My mouth is watering even thinking about it!

DRINK

Did we mention that The Wrecking Bar Brewpub also has tasty brunch cocktails? The spicy Bloody Mary is a delicious cocktail including Tito’s Vodka that the bartenders have spiced up in their own way at the Wrecking Bar to make an awesome and dangerous brunch cocktail.

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Episode #46: Barb’s 5K at the JG 13.1 Half Marathon Weekend

Welcome to Atlanta, Georgia and the 5th Anniversary of the Jeff Galloway Half Marathon Weekend!

RUN

This episode features Barb’s 5K, the first race in our weekend celebrating the 5th Anniversary of one of our favorite races.  We also got the chance to run with some great people from the Extra Mile Podcast Group. If you have not listened to the Extra Mile Podcast or Extra Mile Podcast: Galloway Edition, you are missing out. Kevin Gwin is the host of these two awesome podcasts about running and this group is so motivational.  We ran through Piedmont Park.  Although it was wet, raining, and very cold compared to Florida weather normally, we had a blast with these people and in the beautiful setting of the park. Barb Galloway even met us at the finish and congratulated us on finishing the race.  We loved every minute! We hope you’ll join us next year!

EAT

Whenever we come to Atlanta, we make it a tradition to eat at Trader Vic’s.  Home of the original Mai Tai, their food is also an amazing taste of the South Pacific.  We had the Pupu Platter called Cosmo Tidbits on their menu.  Ribs, perfectly battered and fried shrimp and delicious ribs from their unique wood-fired ovens that you can see as you sit and sip on your Mai Tai.  We also had their delicious Morel Mushroom appetizer.  It is a must-have from their menu.  These appetizers are why we almost never get to the main entree.  We also had a Hot-Buttered Rum as part of our dessert.  Buttery, cinnamon, and sweet flavors warm you from head to toe.  (I know this is the eating portion, but it was so good, I couldn’t help but mention it.)  If you come to Atlanta, come to Trader Vic’s.  Their entrees are also dynamite, but their appetizers are shareable and very filling. 

DRINK

Right after Barb’s 5K, we went to Orpheus Brewing.  They hosted a special event celebrating Barb’s 5K and letting us try their tasty beer.  We had a Stout and a couple of sours they had on draft in a beautiful snifter commemorating the race weekend.  We hope they continue this tradition for years to come because the after party had tasty beer and great runners to hang out with and celebrate.

RUN

Jeff Galloway 13.1 is a race that is near and dear to my heart because Jeff Galloway has been my run-walk-run coach for so many years.  He and his wife Barbara are such genuine and supportive people who are passionate about running.  Their beautiful half marathon and 5K courses support great causes like the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors and the Piedmont Dog Park as well as the Donna Foundation and Team 413.  The half marathon course takes you through some of the best sights you can see in Atlanta.  This year, the race was a challenge for me because I rolled my ankle before mile 1 and had to fight to finish.  Next year, I will come back stronger and more careful than ever to highlight that beautiful course.  It was a race that tested endurance, mental toughness, and dedication.  The people on the course, especially the 4:30 pacers and that great group of ladies who finished just ahead of us and stayed to cheer us on, as well as Jeff at the finish, were wonderful to us and we can't thank them enough!  Next year will be great!

EAT

The Wrecking Bar Brewpub is located in a renovated and historic space in Atlanta.  The food we had, the corn pups, were incredible! 

Wrecking Bar cheddarwurst, cornbread battered and fried, then served with curry ketchup & yellow mustard.  Melt in your mouth tender meat and the sweetness of the cornbread along with the tart and tang of the dipping sauces... just incredible.

DRINK

The Wrecking Bar Brewpub has homemade ginger beer, lime, and bourbon in their Kentucky mule.  It was perfect for bourbon lovers or anyone who likes a Moscow mule but is looking for a twist. Their drink menu is eclectic and beer selection is vast and has something for everyone, too.

THAT’S A WRAP!
