Charlotte Foster Dances Her Way to Success in the Atlanta Arts

Charlotte Foster Atlanta Dance Central

A few months ago, I attended a showcase show at 7 Stages Theater in Little Five Points, a neighborhood in Atlanta.  Dance had been something that I had grown up around, but let’s just say that this 6’4″, 200 lbs guy found his home on the football field and not the stage.  Many of my […]

What Dad Really Wants for Father’s Day

Fathers Day Gift Ideas

Times change, styles go in and out, but dads stay pretty cool for the most part.  Whoever started giving dads ties, socks, and underwear for gifts should get a swift kick to the ass.  If your dad still has his nose to the grind, then those items are perfectly fine as a stocking stuffer, but […]

South City Kitchen Midtown Brings Out Your Southern Drawl

South City Kitchen Midtown Atlanta

Anyone who grows up in Northern Virginia, like I did, will argue that it should be a separate state from Virginia. Most of us claim that we are Northerners when we venture down to the South, regardless of where the Mason-Dixon line lies. Sweet tea and Chick-fil-a didn’t even reach our area until just a […]

The Brickery Bar & Grill | Burgers, Beer, & Much More!

The Brickery Sandy Springs

So you just threw dinner into the oven, got distracted with other household chores and before you know it something smells like burnt lasagna.  It is burnt lasagna, and by the time you smelled the burning and realized it, it was too late.  Frustrated, you take the charred dinner out of the oven while trying not to […]

Made: Southern Designers Using Their Hands

The Southern Design Concern

Resourcefulness is one of those words that comes to mind when folks think of the South.  The heritage and culture from the old South still stands today; Don’t throw something away that can still be useful for another.  Much of the South is still covered with farm land where everything can have a second life.   […]

Don’t Skip Over Stone Mountain Park

Stone Mountain Park - The Generals Carving

Sometimes the spots that are closest to us are the ones we take for granted.  Many people who live right next to big cities live so close that we never actually take time to visit cool places that may be considered typical tourist attractions.   Whether you are an Atlanta local or visiting from out […]

Virginia-Highland’s Summerfest 2011

Virginia Highland Summerfest

Very few festivals standout in my mind as an overall amazing experience.  There are plenty of festivals around Atlanta, many of which are fun, but not all of them are made for everyone in the community.  The small neighborhood of Atlanta, Virginia-Highland, offers one of the best all around festivals in the city.  It is […]

{three} sheets to Sandy Springs

{three} sheets in Sandy Springs

The great thing about living in Atlanta is that there are a bunch of cities combined into one.  Whether you are in Midtown, Decatur, Buckhead, or College Park, you can find some great local places to go eat.  Some of us don’t live inside the Perimeter, but we still reap the benefits of living in […]

Atlanta Summer 2011 Beer Festivals

Atlanta Beer Festivals 2011

It’s past time to shake off those winter blues and welcome summer time with open arms.  One of the best parts about this time of year is that there is a festival going on around the city just about every weekend.  We love to celebrate in the South, and thankfully we know how to cool […]
