A visit to Mellow Mushroom

While visiting family in Georgia this past week, we ducked into a local-ish chain pizza joint called Mellow Mushroom. I was immediately drawn to the attached poster for "Beer Club," which my uncle helpfully explained referred to the 100 distinct brews they kept on hand - you can sample 2 per night, and if you sample all 100 over the course of time, you get your name engraved on a little tiny plaque that gets added to a framed collage on the wall.

But more interesting to me were the overt psychedelic references on the menu, which caught me delightfully off guard, even as a visitor from the west coast. The drink menu included a "Shroom Tea," a melon liqueur infused version of a Long Island Iced Tea; more tellingly, a "Dirty Bong Water," which featured vodka, amaretto, melon liqueur, blue curacao, and raspberry schnapps (plus "fresh juices"); and of course, a "Grateful Dead," which I did not get around to tasting, because I did not need yet one more absurdly boozy cocktail in my evening.

The dessert menu included Dude's Psychedelic Cookie Sundae, the Half Baked Brownie Supreme, and of course, Mary Jane's Double Chocolate Brownie ("this ain't no Plain Jane Brownie; it's an experience!").

I would like to point out, before I forget, that the pizza at this establishment was outstanding.

Currently residing in Cambodia, I would say Happy Pizza, a pizza place that actually delivers on it's promises is more my style.

We have one in Fayetteville, Arkansas that is outstanding as well. I highly recommend it!

As a former GA resident (and current TN resident--they have Mellow Mushroom here too, thank god) I can attest to the quality of this chain's pizza. The only thing I sometimes question is the slight anise flavor in their sauce. The psychedelic references on their menu are past overt to explicit. All in all, a great restaurant chain.

Love Mellow Mushroom, and Love Sweetwater 420 and IPA, the micro-brewed beer from Atlanta. Great stuff.
