Audra’s Review of Restaurant Holmes~Downtown Alpharetta

by Audra Anders for The Aha! Connection

I’ve traveled all over the state of Georgia watching my sons play baseball.  Yes, I once was a “travel baseball mom”.   I tell you this because travel baseball families eat out ALOT.  You never know where you’ll be at meal time on a travel baseball weekend so you learn how to YELP well.  … Read More »

Lunch with Lauren: Ponko Chicken

by Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

Ponko Chicken is Japanese-American fare and it’s SO yummy. It’s a super casual place, right off I85 and Chamblee-Tucker that specializes in crispy chicken tenders. If you get a plate, you get 3 tenders and two side choices from: ponko rice, brown rice, ponko fries, sweet fries, potato salad, cole slaw, ponko pickles, green beans, or side salad.… Read More »

Well, we all made it to summer and what’s that saying……”The pool/beach will give it whatever body I give it?” That’s my mentality considering most moms should get a patch for just surviving May. I do tend to eat less and lighter, but still maintain this squishy physique with plenty of empty wine calories.… Read More »

Lunch with Lauren: Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse

by Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

I’ll cut right to the meat of it, Del Frisco’s was one of the best meals I’ve had recently, like lick the plate good. The restaurant is located in the new State Farm building on the Perimeter Mall side of Dunwoody, which I typically avoid during the week because of the traffic but for an 11:30 lunch date the commute was a breeze.… Read More »

Lunch with Lauren: J’s Mini Hot Pot Deluxe

By Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

My new favorite place to lunch. I’m not sure why I haven’t tried this place sooner; probably because the idea of my child with selective hearing cooking her own food in a pot of boiling broth makes my eye twitch. Spoiler alert…it went really well. Hot pot is a Chinese method of cooking a variety of foods in broth at the table.… Read More »
