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, CarlaKaiser.com 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!

Love,

Lady Rogue

Welcome to rogueApron.com!

Whew! It’s been a whirlwind month for rogueApron. This idea has been floating ever since I met the founders of New York’s Whisk & Ladle over a year ago in Lisbon.

Fast forward a year later, back in Atlanta. I’ve met Lord Apron and the goodfellas behind East Atlanta Brewery.

We’ve done a few test runs of rogueApron — notably our Asian-themed taco extravaganza in December, and now we’re ready to launch.

Our debut effort will be our St. Paddy’s Day Feast – an informal Irish-style gathering to help us raise seed capital for future events. The initial response from folks has been overwhelming – thanks to everyone who has added us as a friend on various websites!

We really look forward to joining Atlanta’s independent food community. Thanks for welcoming us!

Love,

Lady Rogue
