Atlanta food trucks

Event of the Week Slinging street food every day at Atlanta's Food Truck Park apparently isn't enough for some of the ATL's favorite mobile eats vendors, so they're descending on Piedmont Park for the 2nd Annual Atlanta Street Food Festival. Expect live music and plenty of mobile grub from the likes of The Fry Guy, Freckled & Blue, and Smiley's Street Eats. See all the trucks, right here

Local Lady We Love, and Where to Meet Her

Meet Teodora Nicolae, a lovely Romanian-born, South Florida-raised lady who now happily calls the ATL home.

Why we love her: 1) She runs/can get you into the city's hottest events 'cause she works at CWPR, where she also spends a shton of time wrangling celebs. 2) The girl can dress -- for proof check her style blog The Fashion Lush. And 3) she can EAT! You'll find her most nights devouring medium-rare filets and lobster mac 'n cheese at Midtown steakhouse STK, downing plates of burrata ravioli at Cucina Asellina, or satisfying her dessert addiction with bacon-banana pudding at D.B.A. Barbecue.

Our only question... where does all that food go?!
