BOOK CLUB— Curbed Atlanta editor Josh Green will be at SCAD's Ivy Hall on Thursday, January 16, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. talking about and signing copies of his book Dirtyville Rhapsodies, which Creative Loafing called "best book by a local author" in 2013. Go say hi. [EaterWire]

FEUDS— Remember when Rosebud got a cease and desist letter from McAlister's Deli and had to change the name of its popular breakfast sandwich, The Big Nasty, since it shared a name with a lunch item from the deli chain? The same thing is happening with Charleston restaurant Hominy Grill, except Hominy is hosting a naming contest for its breakfast sandwich. The winner gets a pretty sweet prize. [-ECHS-]

ATHENS— Tonight in Athens, find $1.75 oysters at the bar of Hugh Acheson's 5&10. For Atlantans, here's an oyster deal map. [EaterWire]

BLACK FRIDAY— Valentine's Day is a month away, and Zagat's rounded up nine "can't miss" reservations. UrbanDaddy has some of the best tables in town, too. [EaterWire]
