TEAM HIDI— Inside Irwin Street Market, Jake's Ice Cream now offers an ice cream flavor called Hidiculous. In honor of late chef Ryan Hidinger and "dreamed up by Ryan himself," it's got bourbon, pecans, maple, and bacon, and a portion of every scoop goes to The Giving Kitchen. [EaterWire]

Q&A— Here's an interview with Julian Goglia of The Pinewood Tippling Room. He talks bartender vs. mixologist, all things cocktails, and the ingredient he'll never stock over at The Sipologist: "I refuse to carry Bigallet Viriana China China Amer. It's a great product, but the name annoys me." Check his thoughts on pink margaritas this way. [EaterWire]

ATHENS— Sunday, February 16, is the annual Taste of Athens event. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., over 50 restaurants will be providing food, wine, and beer. Get more information and purchase tickets here; proceeds benefit non-profit Community Connection of Northeast Georgia. [EaterWire]

POP-UPSOctopus Bar chef Angus Brown will be cooking at MG Road, the Chai Pani lounge in Asheville, on Monday, January 20. He's collaborating Elliott Moss, who pops up regularly in the North Carolina restaurant (more on that here). If you're there for the long weekend, check it from 6 p.m. 'til the food runs out.
