Menu for the Week of August 27, 2012 — Celebrate Labor Day with CIVIC!

Finally, our next three day weekend is here!  Regardless of whether you’re staying in town or hitting the road, The Spotted Trotter has you covered with anything you’ll want to throw on the grill, or on a charcuterie plate if you’re in charge of bringing the antipasto. Don’t forget about our pre-order function if you have your heart set on something!

For those of you staying in town this fine three-day-weekend, please don’t forget about our second installment of CIVIC happening this Friday, August 31st!   For this month’s CIVIC, The Spotted Trotter is Smokin’ Hot!  As in, Kevin will be taking diners on a culinary tour of all things smoked, using eight different types of smoke!  For all the details on this event (including the menu and directions on how to reserve your seat) please visit our Upcoming Events page. 

As promised in a prior post, the pairings for this event have been made by Eddie Holley of Ale Yeah! Craft Beer Market, and you can pick up any and all of the following beers at their store this week prior to the event!

Orange Smoke:  Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat
Jasmine Tea Smoke:  Sierra Summerfest Lager
Tabasco Barrel Oak Smoke:  Fuller’s London Porter
Hickory Smoke w/ Star Anise:  Duck Rabbit Hoppy Bunny
Pecan Smoke:  Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale
Fig w/ Oregano, Rosemary & Thyme Smoke:  Tilburg’s Ductch Brown Ale
Peach Smoke:  Dogfish Head Festina Peche
Corncob Smoke:  Gaffel Kolsch

The 7 p.m. slot has three spots left, but we still have several spots open for the 9:30 slot.  To reserve your seat, please get your reservation in no later than Tuesday night by emailing Megan at   Help us make this a completely sold out event — for this month’s CIVIC only, we’ll be donating 5% of our sales to the East Atlanta and Grant Park Farmers Markets.

Stay Hungry Atlanta!
