Montaluce Winery and Restaurant in Dahlonega is celebrating its 10th anniversary. I finally made my first visit there. Better late than never to experience their exquisite surroundings and offerings.
Do you get a thrill when someone in a zippy car peels out? You might know it as “laying drags.” That’s kid stuff compared to what you’ll see when Drift Atlanta returns to Road Atlanta on May 11-12, 2018.
