#283 – Dine Out Tonight for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – El Taco & South City Kitchen-Vinings Support Local Team in Training – Tuesday, November 9, 2010
Plan to eat out to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Georgia Chapter of Team in Training at El Taco or South City Kitchen-Vinings tonight – Tuesday, November 9, 2010 – from 5:00 PM until 10:00 PM.
Fifth Group Restaurants, the restaurant group behind El Taco and South City Kitchen-Vinings (as well as South City Kitchen-Midtown, Ecco, and La Tavola) has supported Georgia Team in Training and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in the past and has stepped up again this year to do so again. They are donating 20% of all sales for the evening.
The Original El Taco, located in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood, is known for its simple and fresh Mexican food, including an a la carte taco menu (my favorites are the pork carnitas tacos and the fried chicken taco). Their lime salted tortilla chips with queso and any one of the mouthwatering, fresh salsas from the salsa bar are the perfect compliment to a frozen margarita or their yummy sangria (my favorite in town)!
South City Kitchen-Vinings is famous for its contemporary Southern cuisine. Think all your Southern favorites and updated Southern classics. A few of my favorites include the Smoked and Chopped BBQ Pork Sandwich, Lowcountry Shrimp & Grits, and of course, Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Start the meal with the Fried Green Tomatoes with goat cheese or Pimento Cheese on toasted corn crackers with housemade butter pickles.

Will you do me a favor? When you visit El Taco or South City Kitchen-Vinings tonight, please give the server the name “LAURA SCHOLZ” for your bill. She is an Atlanta Team in Training member (and local PR maven) and I’d love to know the money you’re helping to raise tonight is going to her fundraising efforts!
Nothing feels better than a stress-free dinner you don’t have to prepare yourself after a long day…except perhaps knowing that you’re dining out for a great cause.
