During 2015's Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, Holeman & Finch was playing games -- Bingo, to be precise. Their cards made sport of the everyday clichés of a Southern food festival, much to our thrill and delight. We thought they were so great, in fact that they deserved a revival in 2016. Holeman & Finch was nice enough to oblige us, so here it is, for your click-and-print amusement: the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival Bingo Card.

Psst... you can get tickets to the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival (June 2 - 5, 2016) by clicking here.

Hello, summer! The long weekend is out ahead, full of sunny potential. As you double-check your packing list and prepare to muck your way through the clogged highways en route to the coast, mountains or lake, did you remember to grab a gift for your hostess? If you're a dinner or day guest, a few good, cold bottles of rosè should do the trick, but if your stay exceeds three days, I think it's nice to arrive with something a little more thoughtful and substantial in-hand. These are a few of my favorites:

 

1. A custom rubber stamp with the residence address is even more thoughtful when gifted with a pretty ink pad. (35.00, on Etsy) 2. Who says the hostess can't treat herself? This portable seersucker hammock begs for shady afternoon snoozes. (199.00, at Yellow Leaf Hammocks) 3. The perfect weekender, period. (165.00, at Cuyana) 4. Playing cards for after-dinner games. (15.00, at Misc. Goods) 5. A cheery plastic beach tote crafted in Guatemala. (Retailers at Palorosa Project) 6. The cuddliest throw you'll ever feel. (79.00 on current Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) 7. A chic Panama hat that goes way beyond basic. (330.00, at Mille) 8. Portable tunes for the outdoors. (179.00, on current Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) 9. Appropriate mugs for the ubiquitous return of Moscow mules. (11.98, on current Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) 10. The best soap, ever. Who knew sea salt could smell so great? (8.04, at Amazon)
