This is from last week, but a fellow student took me to The Shack, at the corner of Murphy Ave. and Ralph D. Abernathy in Southwest Atlanta. It's in the parking lot of Merkinson's Seafood, around the corner from West End MARTA station. 

It's only open Thursday through Saturday, carry-out only. The service is leisurely, so don't be in a hurry. As for the barbecue? My ribs weren't very tender, but the bark and smoke flavor were excellent. $8 for five big spare ribs. Whatever it lacks in competition-level refinement, it more than makes up for with authenticity and roadside patina. IT'S A JOINT.

No offense to your joyful children, but adult night at +Georgia Aquarium is outstanding. Be sure to check it out next time.

Grad school has pretty much wrecked my barbecue agenda, but I'm squeezing in some grilling when I can.

Drums and thighs marinated with some oil, vinegar and Pilsen rub from The Spice House.

This is a good read on Japanese cocktail philosophy and the current scene in Tokyo.
