Join jolly jam sessions at Big Tex (308 W. Ponce de Leon Ave.). Big Tex serves up food and atmosphere somewhere between classic American and Southern… Nope, must be Texan!

Oil to the world, from Splash of Olive (201 W. Ponce de Leon Ave.)! This tasting room is gleaming with gourmet olive oils, vinegars, and inventive infusions that brighten every bite. The cooks on your list will know that this is the good stuff. Each Splash of Olive’s products is selected for superior quality and traced from tree to bottle. Their UPEVOOs (that’s ultra premium extra virgin olive oils, of course) are fresh-pressed, certified, and most importantly, delicious. Add smooth, herbal depth to every food you cook, salad you toss, or bread you dip. Stay and sample a superb selection of aged and infused vinegars, too – think blackberry-ginger, cinnamon-pear, or fig. (They even make spirits bright in cocktails!)

Get a good dog at Doggy Dogg (310 E. Howard Ave.) in Decatur. They serve snappy all-beef franks, vegan dogs, local kielbasa, chorizo and bacon with delicious and inventive toppings, and the toastiest of buns. Doggy Dogg is all about letting your frank flag fly. Their menu features top-quality ingredients – think small-batch hot sauce, kimchi, and kraut – in inspired combinations. Go local with the 404: “pimchz (housemade pimento cheese) + bacon bits + dogg sauce (tangy honey mustard) + hot sauce.” Or go all out with the Pushkar Pupp (vegan by default): “spicy onion relly, pepper’d plantain chips, peach habanero hot sauce, herbadellic chutney and tandoori veganaise.” The main take-away from this charming take-away stand is that food should be good (maybe messy) fun.

Holidays with a Doggy Dogg twist: Two words – gift cards.
