Once again we provide a round-up of the biggest news and events happening around downtown Atlanta, Grant Park, the Old Fourth Ward, Inman Park, Candler Park, Reynoldstown, Cabbagetown, Sweet Auburn, Edgewood, and the rest of intown:
- Our little burger baby is all grown up! The cult favorite Grindhouse Killer Burgers has announced it’s looking for buyers for its original location in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market in the heart of the Old Fourth Ward. Thanks to rapid growth and popularity, owner and founder Alex Brounstein is looking to find someone to take over the downtown Grindhouse Burger so that he can focus on opening additional locations. The Old Fourth Ward location has been very popular as a lunchtime spot for downtown workers and hipster residents alike.
- Big talk this week about renovating and beautifying the Downtown Connector. Options bandied about include exhibitions of public art, flowing ivy covering the retaining walls, light installations on bridges and underpasses, and bike trails and park-like promenades adding green space. What’s your take: admirable project to boost civic pride or a big old waste of cash? We kind of like the idea of seeing more local art get repped by the city.
- Sick of food trucks yet? Neither are we. Looks like another street food event is popping up, this time in Inman Park. Every Saturday from 6-9 PM in the gravel lot across from Inman Perk, the Inman Food Park will feature King of Pops, Hail Caesar, Tex’s Tacos, WOW! Food Truck, Boners BBQ, Westside Creamery, Mobile Marlay, Fry Guy, Tamale Queen, and more. Fantastic date night option, we think!
- Finally, if you’ve been hitting the food trucks too hard, The Biggest Loser will be hosting a casting call in downtown Atlanta on August 6. In case your dream is to lose weight in front of the entire country, you know.
