Celebrate BEER at the Atlanta Winter Beer Festival!

Winter Beer FestGrab your friends and head to the Masquerade this Saturday, January 26, from 2:00-7:00pm for the Atlanta Winter Beer Festival!    According to my iPhone, it’s going to be a sunny 52 degrees Saturday – perfect for hanging out with friends, beer, food and music.   (Though if 52 degrees is not quite warm enough for you, know that the event takes place mostly inside and in tents.  If the weather holds up, you’ll also be able to enjoy some time outside.)

P’cheen and Corner Tavern announce industry night specials!

Many of us consider Friday and Saturday nights as our time to unwind from a long work week, kick back, have a nice dinner, or grab a few beers.  But if you’re the restaurant worker cooking that nice dinner or the bartender preparing that tasty cocktail, Friday and Saturday nights are for working!  So when are these hard-working hospitality employees supposed to relax?  Behold, industry nights!   Typically held on Sunday and Monday nights, when the restaurant and bar business takes it easy, industry nights are when the other half celebrates the weekend.

Two Atlanta restaurant/bars, Corner Tavern and P’cheen, recently announced new industry night specials.  Here are the details.  Continue reading

Atlanta’s Art on the BeltLine 2012 has arrived!

Art on the BeltLineYou likely already know about Atlanta’s BeltLine project, the work underway to provide Intown Atlanta with a network of public parks, multi-use trails and transit by reusing 22-miles of historic railroad corridors circling downtown and connecting 45 neighborhoods, but did you know about the parallel effort to bring art to these new trails and parks?   The Art on the BeltLine project, as it is called, is the City of Atlanta’s largest temporary public art exhibition that showcases the work of hundreds of visual artists, performers, and musicians along nine miles of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor.

 

Art on the BeltLine began in the summer of 2010 when more than 40 unique visual and performance works appeared along the corridor.  In 2011, that number increased to 66 visual and performance pieces.  And now, in 2012, there are more than 70 works to enjoy.   The 2012 exhibition began on September 15 and runs through November 11.
