Coconut Island Recap

RA menu

Dear Internet –

It’s been a few days, but I still have a smile on my face – our Coconut Island Extravaganza was such a smashing success thanks to your support!

It was really inspirational to see so many great folks come together to help us put together a social dining experience. In just under a few hours, we went from an empty backyard to a full-fledged party – it was really magical to watch.

Many thanks go out to Scott for the tent canopy, Mass for the tables, Molly and Casey for being greeters, Molly and Broderick for taking awesome pictures, Kristin for being her usual super-helpful self, for doing our signage, the Powe boys for helping with setup, Carrington for donating wine, Russ for sourcing our music, and Jenn and Eddie for doing such a bombass job helping us clean up.

As always, much appreciation to East Atlanta Brewery for partnering with us – I’m still thinking of their delicious Nutmeg Witber and the Roasted Coconut Porter.

And on a final note – thanks to all of you who came out and supported rogueApron – we really couldn’t do any of it without you. Please sign our guestbook and let us know what you thought!

Next Event: Coconut Island


Atlanta – we’ve had enough with snow flurries. We’re thinking spring – imagining sandy beaches, sunshine, tangy fresh fruit. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

So while the details of our next event are still shaping up, East Atlanta Brewery is brewing a Coconut Porter, and we’re thinking about marinating a hangar steak in it. Possibly topped with jerk shrimp? Coconut and jerk marinated tofu kebabs? How about a warm weather backyard picnic? Maybe … April 28th?

Interested? Make a reservation, or sign up for our mailing list, and we’ll keep you posted. [Event info on Facebook and Upcoming]. UPDATE, April 25, 2008: We’ve expanded our capacity … make a reservation, and we’ll feed ya!
