There’s something about going to a concert and going home with a limited-edition screen print poster that I find so satisfying. In one simple transaction I have brought art into my home, supported a talented artist and band, preserved music history, and cataloged a symbol of who I am — who I was.

That is why it brings me great pleasure to alert you all to an art show that, if you’re anything like me in having a strong passion and appreciation for screen print posters of your favorite bands, will make you smile ear to ear and leave with that satisfying that comes with going to a high-quality art show.

Whiskey Park @ The W Hotel – Midtown

November 30, 2009

By CAROLINE COX

I’m generally a jeans-and-plaid-shirt kinda girl when it comes to going out to the bars for some drinks.  Estoria, Graveyard, and East Side Lounge are just a few of my favorite Atlanta bars.

But every now and then a girl likes to throw some lipstick and a dress on to paint the town red, you know?  Whenever you’re feeling that way, the place to be, if you ask me, is Whiskey Park at the midtown W Hotel.

It’s that time of year… Christmas is almost here and I know I’ve already been stressing about finding the perfect gifts for those I love. How convenient that Atlanta’s Humane Society is having a “two purr one” deal: buy one kitten, get one free! Read more…

If getting drunk at your friend’s house and bars is starting to sound like old news, then it’s time for a change! This holiday season, from Nov. 14 – Jan. 31, Centennial Olympic Park will be home to Atlanta’s only outdoor skating rink. You know what that means: new place to get drunk! Kidding, of course.

Tealights is a four-piece electronica-infused rock band from Atlanta that has earned critical acclaim since its inception a little over a year ago.

 

Born from the embers of now defunct electro-pop outfit One Hand Loves the Other, Tealights is by no means a Fischerspooner, Le Tigre or Cut Copy, with their fast-paced, dance-style rhythms.

A Bit of Shameless Promotion for the Rocky Mountain Pizza Co.

November 26, 2009

by Sara Hensel

Rocky Mountain Pizza; You might have been there, but perhaps you don’t remember due to the likely hood of consuming copious amounts of cheap booze. Located on 10th and Hemphill, this place is the epitome of a local college bar. $5 dollar pitchers, $2 shots, and some of the tastiest wings in Atlanta. Read more…
