VIP Blogger Tour at The Avenue East Cobb

Last week, Atlanta Bloggers were invited to The Avenue at East Cobb for a VIP Blogger Tour. Our tour started in The Avenue’s management office where we were greeted and walked the red carpet. Inside we were treated to Brixx Pizza and champagne to get the tour off to a great start.

Our next stop was Ann Taylor. Here we were given a preview of their upcoming fall trends. Their collection included a beautiful selection of blouses, jackets, and ankle pants. Afterwards, the great staff at Ann Taylor gave us to a style challenge. We were all given a pair of ankle pants. We then had to come up with 3 looks that incorporated these ankle pants. Oh! And we had 4 minutes to complete the task! Eek! I pulled a few things together, but of the other bloggers really knew how to put an outfit together. I was very impressed. The winner of the challenge, Nikka Shae of Oh! Nikka, won a Ann Taylor handbag. Nice!

Next, we walked over to one of my favorite stores, Williams-Sonoma. Williams-Sonoma was founded in 1956 by Chuck Williams. He was the first to discover, import, and popularize brands when they were small such as KitchenAid, Le Creuset, and Mandolines. Today, Williams-Sonoma is America’s leader in high-quality cookware and tools.
At our stop here at the Williams-Sonoma East Cobb location, we were warmly greeted and presented with a Moscow Mule. A Moscow Mule is a cocktail consisting of high quality vodka, a spicy ginger beer, and lime juice, garnished with a slice of lime. Williams-Sonoma carries this fantastic Moscow Mule mix, spindrift, making it easy to make your new favorite cocktail. Just add vodka!! It was delicious! Spindrift us exclusively sold at Williams-Somonoma, so be sure to pick one up! Before we left he had a small contest. The first blogger to show that they followed Williams-Sonoma at East Cobb on Instagram (@wseastcobb) won a Copper Mug. The blogger with the quickest draw was Lindsey from Redhead Baby Mama! Awesome prize!

Next, we went to Versona. Versona is “an exclusive women’s boutique offering apparel and accessories at exceptional prices every day!” The boutique was huge and filled lots of fashion forward items. I could definitely shop here! A few bloggers were given a style challenge. They had to select an item, then tell us how it could be worn or used. With their great ideas, they were gifted with the item they had selected! All of the bloggers also received a very nice tote bag from Versona! What a nice surprise!!

The last stop on this awesome tour was Cheeky Mexican Tanqueria. Cheeky would be you go to place for fresh food in a lively, fun environment. You definitely got that vibe as soon as you walked in the door. We were seated at their self serving beer tap tables. Cheeky’s, patent pending, “My Tap” system allows patrons to enjoy a sporting event on ahigh definition tv, while pouring their own beer in tap at the table. The system keep track of how much beer is poured and is sold by the ounce. Very cool!
Next,we were treated with a few bites. I really enjoyed the Chicken Quesadillas and Chips and Salsa! Really tasty! We also was able to taste a couple of their signature cocktails, the Cheeky Margarita and the Prickley Orange Margarita. Both cocktails were exceptional! I will definitely make the drive to Marietta for that!
