I like puns, as you’ve probably gathered by now. That’s why the return of South City Kitchen Vinings‘ second-annual Hogtoberfest puts a smile on my face. I mean, hog + October + fest is just about as good as it gets.
It’s not hard too hard to figure out what this vundabar event is all about, is it? Starting Thursday, October 11 and running through Saturday, October 20, the restaurant will serve up a delicious variety of pork-centric dishes that will be available in addition to the regular dinner menu, as well. So you can go whole hog or just add a little taste or two. Either way, I know where this little piggy’s gonna go.
