Alon’s Bakery and Market to Participate in International Bakery Open House

ATLANTA -- Alon’s Bakery and Market in Atlanta is one of 55 bakeries participating in The Bread Bakers Guild of America’s 2nd Annual International Bakery Open House on Saturday, October 20.  Guild member bakeries in 27 US states and 3 Canadian provinces will take part in the open house, which is part of The Guild’s 2012 event series, The Cereal Series: Going With the Grain.

The Guild-Wide Bakery Open House was conceived as a way to bring communities to their bakeries, as well as to champion the cause for locally made bread.

Both locations of Alo’s Bakery and Market are participating in the open house. From 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Dunwoody location, guests can watch as Owner Alon Balshan bakes flatbread and focaccia in the wood-burning oven and enjoy a tasting of flatbreads, cheese and hummus. Cookies and beverages will also be available to sample during the day.  From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Buffalo Wild Wings unveils new logo, restaurant design

Buffalo Wild Wings unveils new logo, restaurant design

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Buffalo Wild Wings unveiled a new logo last week and said that it was redesigning its restaurants.

The new logo is not dramatically different. The colors are the same, and a winged buffalo is still the centerpiece.

But the tagline "Grill & Bar" has been replaced with "Wings. Beer. Sports.," and the buffalo image has been tweaked.

"The new buffalo is more muscular and athletic," Minnesota-based Buffalo Wild Wings said in a news release. "It has enlarged wings, narrowed eyes and upward-turned horns -- giving it a more powerful look."

Redesigned restaurants will be unveiled in late 2012, with the first one being in Cincinnati and the second in San Diego. Most of the new Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants opening in 2013 and many remodels will feature the new design.
