You may recall, the Hoochee Map Dancers is a group of friends and foodies who meet on occasion at restaurants around Atlanta. The restaurants are typically internationally themed. This day it was Lebanese. Other dinners have been Russian, Korean, Chinese, Bulgarian, Moroccan, etc.
We were fortunate on this occasion to have as our guests Barbara and Vince Dooley. The group's ring leader, Jim Macie is a University of Georgia School of Law graduate and former Catholic Priest who baptized the Dooley's son Derek long ago. Jim and his wife Mary Ann have remained friends of the Dooley's all these years.

The restaurant which is typically closed on Sunday opened especially for our group of 30+ diners. As is standard for our dinners, many of our members bought their own bottles of wine to pair with the dinner.
The meal courses started with pita bread, hummus and baba ghannouge (not shown). That was followed by tabbouleh, fried cauliflower, chicken shawarma, and lamb kebabs. For dessert we had baklawa.
Thanks for reading.
