Atlanta BeltLine

King of Pops Yoga

The first time I ever tried an outdoor yoga class was about five years ago, on the big hill in Piedmont Park, and it is still one of the best classes I’ve ever had. Something about doing yoga outside really spoke to me. The balmy breeze through the trees, the evening sun peeking through the […]

Exploring Art on the BeltLine

Every year, after the Annual Lantern Parade, loads of new public art appears on the Atlanta BeltLine, turning most of the 2.5 miles of the Eastside Trail into a linear, walkable, outdoor art museum. Since I love public art, I invited a friend of mine (who is also an accomplished large-sale artist) to stroll with me and […]

Street Art: Lucile Avenue Bridge

Kinetic street art is the best. It’s got an energy, a motion of its own. Take this colorful example below, called The Highball Artist, seen underneath the Lucile Avenue bridge on the BeltLine. This will always be one of my favorites in Atlanta. The artist, Hadley Breckenridge, imaged buckets of paint being tipped off the […]

Dancing Goats Coffee Bar

I think I’ve found my new in-town chill spot. Not only does the cleverly-named Dancing Goats Coffee Bar serve local coffee and tasty snacks, it’s also part of the new and pretty fabulous Ponce City Market. Best of all, Dancing Goats has a large, inviting patio space that is perfect to relax in. When I popped in the other day, the […]

Street Art: BeltLine Sign

The underpass near The Masquerade on North Ave has a new bit of street art that honors the Atlanta BeltLine! No longer a dank, forgotten swath of concrete, this underpass is now as vibrant as many parts of the BeltLine itself, which glides right above it, in the form of the popular Eastside Trail. This piece […]

Street Art: Murder Kroger

The Kroger supermarket at 725 Ponce de Leon Ave has gotten a super-friendly makeover. Given that it’s nickname used to be Murder Kroger, suffice to say that they’re definitely trying to re-brand. Given that we all know how much I love to gawk at street art, I was only too keen to check it out. […]

The Imagine Music Festival Was Awesome!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this pic perfectly encapsulates how I felt for 48 straight hours over Labor Day weekend. I attended the incredible Imagine Music Festival (take a quick peek at this post for my introduction of it), and I am surprised I was able to speak and stand once […]

The Imagine Music Festival

There are several reasons why I’m really looking forward to Labor Day weekend – BBQ, family, friends, birthdays, the Decatur Book Festival, Dragon*Con, to name a few. But one thing I’m definitely looking forward to is the Imagine Music Festival. If there’s one thing Atlanta does well, it’s festivals, especially music festivals. We attract so […]

Old Fourth Ward Arts Fest

This rainy, gray Monday is making me looong for the sunny skies we enjoyed this past weekend. Especially when the sunny skies come with so much unbridled joy: It’s hard to imagine a funner, simpler Saturday than this. The splashpad pictured above, seen in Historic Fourth Ward Park, is fast becoming a favorite among  residents […]

Sunset Nosh at Ponce City Market

Let me start by saying this: any party that has a version of the Bat signal projected onto the middle of the floor is an awesome party in my book. So for that alone, I take my hat off to the folks who organized Sunset Nosh at Ponce City Market last week. This exclusive, friendly […]
