Omnivore - Parking problems, a departure, a new pub

Some random restaurant reports

We went — where else? — to the Shed at Glenwood Wednesday night, for the $3 sliders and had another great meal. I'm addicted to the barbacoa but tried a new one made with meatballs, which turned out to be another winner.

The place was packed last night. In fact, we had difficulty finding a parking space.

Speaking of parking, I headed to P'cheen Monday for their "Bone Lick BBQ" night. After 10 minutes, I gave up trying to find a parking space, so I didn't get to pig out on the Carolina-style 'cue. Instead, I headed to the Standard for their regular Monday night special of Indian curry....

As I mention in this week's Grazing colum, we ate at Solstice Cafe twice recently. Today, Erick Newman, a partner in the restaurant who recently assumed management of it, made this cryptic announcement on Facebook: "Erick Newman has signed his separation agreement with Solstice Cafe and thanks all of his friends for the support they provided."...

The Reynolds Group is this week's winner of the Florid Writing Award in it's announcement of a new pub:

Rí Rá Irish Pub, debuting in mid- July at the intersection of 12th Street and Crescent Avenue in Midtown, will epitomize a true Irish pub experience, building a comfortable neighborhood environment where conversation flows as smoothly as Guinness ebbs in the glass. Constructed from a pub meticulously restored in Ireland then shipped to Atlanta, the location is destined to be Midtown’s latest hotspot, offering an impressive line-up of live music, a comprehensive drink list and fare that defies pub standards. After all, when your name is translated as “celebration and good fun,” it would be blarney to have it any other way!...

How I dearly and futiley wish that well-intentioned PR firms would learn that they can greatly, hugely, impressively increase the chance of their oh-so-very-important news being published by sticking to the facts and leaving out the baroque, frilly, subjective adjectives.
