On Monday, Oct. 7th I was in Atlanta for a private media screening of the Harriet film, and decided to have dinner at RHOA star, Kandi’s restaurant Old Lady Gang.
Because I was staying in the Midtown area, I visited the location on Peters Street.
During my visit to Atlanta, all of Black Hollywood was in town for Tyler Perry’s movie studio grand opening. So, before you ask, no! I didn’t run into Oprah and Stedman nor Bey and Jay, but I did run into Kandi’s aunt Nora! As soon as I walked into Old Lady Gang there she was standing at the front. She greeted me with that pretty smile and gave me a hug like she’s known me my entire life. I felt right at home from that moment on. Get this! She said she comes to the restaurant everyday and enjoys talking and taking pictures with her guest!
I arrived around 5:30 p.m. and didn’t have to wait for a seat. My server ( I forgot her name) was excellent, she kept coming back to our table to make sure we were okay, and even brought out a fresh plate of cornbread muffins.
I ordered kandi’s honey glazed blackened salmon with kandi’s yams and it was amazing!!!! Those yams were the bomb! I would’ve ordered some to go, but the way my Weight Watchers points are set up I had to resist.
Anyway, if you’re ever in Atlanta make sure you check out Old Lady Gang, oh and grab you a glass of Arnold Palmer!
Then it was off to Regal Atlantic Station for the private screening of Harriet. I’ll have to share my review of the movie later… I’m under contract with the film studio, but I’ll say this…. Cynthia Erivo was wonderful!
