W Buckhead Archives – LUSHWORTHY

For quite sometime now I’ve toyed with the idea of hosting my own Happy Hour meetup series, and after putting it off for a bit I finally decided to host the first ever #MeetMeAtTheBar Happy Hour meetup last week. The meetup took place at Cook Hall (inside the W Atlanta Buckhead) during their Punch Out @ 5 Happy Hour, and lucky for us the day’s Happy Hour special was a $5 Hurricane Punch.

In addition to sipping on Hurricanes, we also nibbled on Cook Hall’s $5 Snacks throughout the evening. During Punch Out @ 5, all of the Snacks at Cook Hall are priced at only $5. And I have to say that their Popcorn Shrimp (normally $12) is hands down the gem of their Snacks menu in my opinion. It consists of fried shrimp and actual, real life popcorn and the entire dish is then drizzled with the most amazing Ranch dressing I’ve ever had. Seriously, they need to bottle the stuff and sell it pronto.

Those in attendance at #MeetMeAtTheBar also won gift bags featuring Lolita martini glasses, Kiehl’s mini gift sets, and Lushworthy t-shirts.

Thanks to everyone who came out and a special thank you to those at Cook Hall, specifically their team of bartenders and Shannon R! And for those of you who weren’t able to make it out, you can expect another #MeetMeAtTheBar at a new location in the very near future.

Last night (December 12), Atlanta’s fashion elite gathered at the W Buckhead’s Whiskey Blue to toast to the various designers taking part in the CFDA’s (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Fashion Incubator program. Described as being “designed to support the next generation of fashion designers in New York City,” the Fashion Incubator program hit the road to showcase pieces from Burkman Bros., Emanuela Duca, Daniel Vosovic, and WHIT.

Now I love fashion, but I love cocktails a tad more and at the cocktail party they were of course serving up a signature cocktail which was Whiskey Blue’s “French Lace.” I have to give Whiskey Blue their props on this one, the “French Lace” is quite the looker. The edible flower placed atop the drink will certainly warrant a few Ooo’s and Ahh’s and the combination of Hpnotiq Harmonie, St. Germain, and champagne is very much on the flavorful side. It’s definitely more of a spring/summer drink, but it was nice being reminded of those beloved summery drinks. And since the majority of the clothing featured by the designers was geared towards spring/summer it seemed pretty fitting.
