Episode 30 - Dale DeSena (Re-Air of Episode 15)

Finally, we reach a cooler climate in the city, the sun softer on our faces, fall beers arise in the ranks of local breweries — it’s Fall, y’all. This also brings on a week that I look forward to all year and that’s the week of Taste of Atlanta. Anticipations galore as I prepare for one of my favorite food festivals in the city.

So, thusly in celebration, we’re re-airing an episode from earlier this summer with none other than the founder of Taste of Atlanta — Dale DeSena.

This woman is a true powerhouse entrepreneur, businesswoman, leader, and all-around great person. I think the world of the work she has done and culture she has brought to Atlanta through Taste of Atlanta and many other food-centric events (shoutout to the Southern Wing Showdown).

If you’ve yet to attend Taste of Atlanta, make this your year. Tickets are still on sale and you can pick them up right here.

Also, follow along with all of the things at the festival with the hashtags #tasteofatlanta, #tasteatl, and #tasteatl18.

We’ll see you there!
