Atlanta Streetcar Safety

When you think of “streetcars” what is the first thing that comes to mind?  That’s right…  Those iconic red San Francisco Streetcars!  The ones that you visualize passengers easily hoping on and off from due to their exposed exterior as they travel through the city with the picturesque San Francisco Bridge and Bay in the background.  Seems like fun, huh?  Well aside from the fun appearance of streetcars, they actually provide some major benefits to the infrastructure and environment of any city.  What are those benefits, you ask?  Well here’s a handful… Continue reading

Atlanta, Let’s Fall into Autumn!

There is something about the crisp autumn air of fall that invokes an extraordinary nostalgia, pumpkin spice, auburn leaves and crazy costumes.  It’s these few weeks of Indian Summer that magically make us all want to go outside, enjoy the crisp fresh air and admire nature changing before us.  Maybe because it’s that perfect balance between summer and winter, cool and cozy, sweet and spice; whatever it is there is no reason to be indoors before winter while there are still so many fun things to enjoy outside!

Here are our top 3 reasons to Fall into Autumn:

1) Barcelona Wine Bar Atlanta

For those who have already visited this unhidden gem of a restaurant on N. Highland Avenue, located at N. Highland Steel Apartments, then you already know that Barcelona Atlanta is the epitome of cozy. With their rustic yet, contemporary architecture and wood grain accents throughout the entire restaurant, their outdoor cobblestone patio with a real wood burning fireplace invites all pedestrians that walk by to stop in, curl up and enjoy one of their specialty bourbons.  If that’s not enough reason to dine at Barcelona, for fall, they are featuring a bourbon spice rack complimented by 4 different bourbons, lavender bitter, maple syrup and lemon juice to give that perfect blend of sweet and savory.  Additionally, their Ensalada Entrevinos is the perfect kale salad (for all you kale nuts out there!) mixed with hazelnut, squash, and drizzled with a house-made vinaigrette.  Visit http://www.barcelonawinebar.com/atlanta.htm.  Stroll on down to Barcelona.  Located at: 240 North Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307 

2) Howl-O-ween Festival & Pet Parade

Ok…so who loves animals? We do!!! This will be more than enough reason for you to dress up your furry friend in a painfully cute costume they’ll resent you for later, and let them strut their stuff down N. Highland Avenue.  Help raise funds for the new Old Fourth Ward Freedom Barkway dog park by donating $10.00 towards 2 tickets for the pet parade.  This not only includes entry into the pet parade but includes 2 FREE drinks and entry into the festival which will be featuring 5 bands from 1:00PM to 6:00PM.  Visit http://www.o4whowloween.com/. So bring out your Franken-weenie or your Jester Jack Russell and come down to N. Highland Ave on Saturday, October 25th at noon.

3) Atlanta’s 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer

If each month had its own color, pink would be the official color for October.  Everywhere you turn people, retail shops and cars are donned in the infamous bubblegum pink that is signature for Breast Cancer Awareness.  Whether you have been affected by it personally or if there are some degrees of separation, we all have been touch by this epidemic.  On October 11 and 12, we encourage you to enjoy this beautiful fall season and participate in Atlanta’s 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer.  So take a stroll and participate in this 30-mile walk and be a part of the fight against Breast Cancer.  Visit http://itsthejourney.org/ to find out more details. Don’t forget to wear your pink!

We hope you are able to participate in one, if not all three, of these spectacular reasons  to Fall in Autumn in Atlanta!  Until next time.
