Weekend Edition: Billy Reid Spring Event, Tonight!


Come hang out with me and the Green Olive Media team tonight! We're hosting a spring event at Billy Reid Atlanta at Westside Provisions tonight with food, drinks and some amazing music - These are seriously some of my favorites little shindigs, hope to see you there! You'll also get to check out the Billy Reid full collection for all your springtime closet needs...Do yourself a favor and see his Spring 2013 collection on the Cut HERE. This is free by the way...Full details here on Facebook!


American Spirit Whiskey's Wiregrass is the cocktail du nuit, and thanks to special privileges (aka: repping ASW at Green Olive), I've thrown in the recipe below for your pleasure/consumption. Taqueria del Sol’s Sol Catering is handling the food...so, yeah, you're going to want to be there, because you get special access to the collaboration between these two Atlanta favorites with a special Taqueria del Sol taco featuring an American Spirit Whiskey white whiskey sauce. Yep, they went there.

American Spirit Whiskey's Wiregrass
1.5 oz ASW
2.0 oz Sweet Tea
3.0 oz Bitter lemon soda

Combine ASW and Sweet Tea in a cocktail glass over ice.  Top with Bitter Lemon Soda and stir.  Garnish with a lemon wedge.


I think I'm most excited for the night's highlight performances from Birmingham-based Duquette Johnston and Atlanta-based, This is American Music artist Tedo Stone! Both have recent EP's out...enjoy the playlist below. Check out Duquette Johnston at www.duquettejohnston.com or www.facebook.com/DuquetteJohnston. Tedo Stone is at www.tedostone.com or www.facebook.com/TedoStone. Between these performances and our amazing new blog series post from yesterday featuring Dropping the Needle, those missing SXSW will be covered for good music and style. You're welcome, Idlewild South followers.
