Omnivore - Merry Beardmas
Chef Kevin Gillespie and crew ready for photos dressed as santa and his elves
? Chef Kevin Gillespie’s beard often reminds us of Christmastime, usually due to his uncanny resemblance to our hero from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Yukon Cornelius. This Saturday (Nov. 28) at Peachtree Road Farmers Market, he will be dressed as another magnificently bearded-beloved— Santa Claus!
? From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Gillespie as Santa, and his crew will be available for free photo ops AND barbecue is involved. Joey Ward (executive chef, Gunshow) and Andreas Müller (executive chef, Revival) will be dressed as elves to make that photo even more adorable. Round up your group of misfit toys and get a memorable holiday shot while you shop the farmers market and artists market.
? Those North Pole imposters will also be cooking up some whole hog barbeque for immediate or deferred pleasure. The elves will have Terminus City BBQ sandwiches for $6 or BBQ by the pound for $16.
? Gillespie is really getting into the holiday spirit. Also check out his “12 Days of Beardmas,” featuring a deal of the day and a silly 15-second daily video. You could score the perfect holiday gift such as a cooking class in your home with Gillespie, a personalized cookbook, or a mixology class at Gunshow.
