Wall Street Journal Gives Atlanta a Shout Out


Atlanta often gets a bad reputation because of its traffic, mediocre public transportation, and Tom Wolfe’s interpretation in A Man in Full, but I have been completely wooed by this city in the last 18 months.  The Wall Street Journal shares my love for ATL today in the article “The New New South.” From Piedmont Park to Bacchanalia, to Richard Blais, to Sid and Ann Mashburn to Peachtree Farmers’ Market, the article mentions many of our city’s highlights.

While some of my personal favorites didn’t make the list (Floataway Cafe, Iberian Pig, and Taqueria del Sol to name a few) the WSJ did a pretty good job. They neglected to mention Decatur at all, but I guess it’s not technically part of Atlanta.

What are your favorite ATL spots?

    any concert at the botanical gardens, Eddie’s Attic, DeKalb Farmers Market, F.O.’s at the Varsity, The Fox Theater for anything, hiking up Stone Mountain, etc, etc, etc.

    I love that Blaise mentions ordering at the bar at Bacchanalia! I feel so hip!
