Monday is the last day of work for our summer interns. We are sad. Really, really sad. So, what do we do to drown our sorrows (and bribe them to come back soon)? Bring in lunch, that's what! Whether it's a homemade sandwich made from Alon's specialties or a bánh mì from Lee's Bakery, lunch is a great way to bring some delicious into your workday.

Oh me, oh my, bánh mi is on the mind of MLA Media Relations Manager Suong Nguyen. She's been from Atkins Park Tavern to Buford Highway trying out the Vietnamese sandwich that's top on the charts for munching right now. View her YouTube video while munching your lunch. Bet you'll go for bánh mi tomorrow.

Third Annual Southern Chefs Potluck to benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia takes over the pavilion and grounds of The Inn at Serenbe this Sunday, August 5 from 3 - 6 p.m., and the best news of all? Almost two dozen of Atlanta's best chefs will handle the potluck part - leave your Jello mold at home! Each chef will prepare a side, homemade pickles or relish and a dessert to add to the bountiful table. Some of the featured dishes that already have us licking our lips are Ford Fry's summer squash casserole with Georgia gouda and garlicky crumb; Shaun Doty's White Oak Pastures chicken galantines with herb vinaigrette; and homemade moon pies toted in by E. J. Hodgkinson of Woodfire Grill. White Oak Pastures meats prepared by Jim 'N Nicks Bar-B-Q and fried chicken legs from The Farmhouse at Serenbe are the main dishes, and everything will be served family style. Guests will also enjoy local beer, wine and cocktails created by top mixologists and served by members of the Atlanta chapter of the United States Bartender's Guild, so you might want to re-watch Cocktail before you arrive. White Oak Pastures' own Will Harris will auction off one-of-a-kind chef experiences, and a raffle can get you unique culinary items. Live music will be provided by Christ, Lord!, Lily and the Tigers and Under White Pines. Purchase tickets online for $125 per person to benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia, a nonprofit organization that helps make healthy food accessible to all Georgia citizens while contributing to our local food economy.
