Where to Find Atlanta’s Best Wings - Atlanta Eater

Once wings started showing up everywhere in Atlanta, wing eaters in the ATL had to come to terms with the fact that it’s impossible to agree on who has the best. While there are dozens of great establishments offering flats, drums, and even that tiny extra part that some people eat as if it actually held meat, some restaurants are leading the wing pack. From smoked to fried, sweet and sour to extra-sauced, including the quintessential Atlanta wing flavor, lemon pepper, here’s a guide to the best wings currently found in metro Atlanta. Leave that fork and knife where they’re sitting, because all that’s needed are two hands, a little cash, and a whole lot of extra napkins. And, maybe some blue cheese, ranch, carrot sticks, and celery, too.

The Ultimate Guide to Exploring Atlanta - Departures

While many people know Atlanta for its ginormous airport and often-gridlocked traffic, the big city of the South has really been undergoing a mammoth rebirth over the last decade and is worth checking out. Sure, there is suburban sprawl, but the city has also been focusing on bringing life back to old buildings from a Sears & Roebuck warehouse to a meat packing plant. The crown jewel in the redevelopment is the Atlanta Beltline, a former railroad corridor around the city (inspired by the Highline in NYC), now a multi-use trail for hiking, exploring, and even shopping.

The Piggies: The Best Things I Ate During the 2017 College Football Season - Sports Illustrated

I considered writing an end-of-season awards column that looked back on the finest moments of the football season that just ended. But everyone does that. What I haven’t done yet is taken a look back at all the calories I consumed over a football season. That needs to be rectified, so today in Punt, Pass & Pork we’re going to hand out the Piggies.

These awards will honor the best things I ate all season. For official purposes, we’re going to define the college football season as “anything between the day I left the house for the trip that included SEC Media Days and the national title game.” Why not stretch back into the spring so we can encompass the entire year? Because the Offseason Piggies sure sounds like a column I could write in July. I’m franchise building here.

So without further ado, let’s hand out the Piggies for the 2017 college football season.
