Six takeaways from Taste of Buckhead

Hundreds turned out for the annual Taste of Buckhead. Held Sept. 24, 2015, in the venerable Buckhead Theatre in the heart of Buckhead Village, attendees sampled dishes from more than 20 restaurants and sampled beverages from a myriad of beer, wine and spirits vendors. The annual event is produced by the Buckhead Business Association (BBA).

Try new-to-market products

New products were front and center. New distiller American Spirit Whiskey offered samples of its new whiskey.

Pose for a picture with a buck

Henry Irby established a general store in the area during the 1830s. After he prominently displayed the head of a deer in the area (possibly in front of his tavern), the community earned the nickname Buck’s Head, which stuck and morphed into Buckhead. The above buck serves as the mascot of the Buckhead community.
