Eating with Erica’s Friendsgiving 2017

There’s nothing like a fabulous dinner with friends to get you into the holiday spirit. And my babe Erica’s (the one and only Eating with Erica) annual Friendsgiving event is the perfect start to the holiday season. Each year, Erica invites some of her closest gal pals to savor, sip, and socialize at one of Atlanta’s best restaurants as a way of showing her appreciation for us. And on top of all this, each guest receives an amazing bag o’ swag. Yep, she’s pretty much an angel on earth and I’m so thankful to know her. (Check out last year’s dinner here!)

This year, we dined at The Capital Grille in Buckhead. This is one of my favorite restaurants, so I was excited to learn we’d be going here and couldn’t wait to see what was on the menu curated just for the event. We also enjoyed cocktails crafted with Ketel One vodka…cheers!

Erica’s Friendsgiving dinner has become one of my favorite new traditions. Not only does Erica get to share this special time with her friends, she also gives us the opportunity to become friends amongst ourselves.

I’ve met so many wonderful women that I now consider my friends, and have connected with several girl bosses that are taking over the city. My list of things to be thankful continues to grow! I can’t think of a better reason to celebrate, can you?
