Atlantic Station

ImageI thought Atlantic Station might be an obvious “StayCation” idea, but until I went there myself I was a little hesitant. The last few times I had gone, it was not as populated as it was today, so, I felt totally safe and happy. There are so many stores and restaurants.  It is Atlantic Station Restaurant week this week, May 12 – 18 and benefits Autism Speaks at lunch and dinner. Participating Restaurants include: Chick-a-Biddy, Lobby Bar and Bistro, Meehan’s Public House, Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro, Atlantic Grill, California Pizza Kitchen, Rosa Mexicano, Strip and Yard House.

I had lunch at Atlantic Grill, it was very good. Meatloaf sandwich, yummy! I know the fries look meh, but they were really good too. Service was excellent. When I left the restaurant, I crossed the street to take a photo. A very nice security guard stopped to tell me I could not take pictures. I think that is crazy so here are a couple I took.

ImageImageThen I ran into H&M. Whew it is a tough shopping environment. Lot’s of deals. I got two skirts for $10.00 and a shirt for $5.99.

ImageSo have fun at Atlantic Station but don’t take any photos, crazy I know!

Tucker Day!

Surprise, It’s Tucker Day! I went to report so you can make plans for next year. Main St. is taken over with bands at both ends and booths line the street.

ImageAll of the music was very good. 

The booths featured jewelry and artwork, ceramics a few massage areas and a few politicians oh and the Rotary Club was there raising money to help combat polio.

ImageImageRestaurants and stores were all open for business. I dined at The Old Tucker Fountain.

ImageIt was really really good. The hotdogs are split and grilled, very tasty. 

The weather was overcast, which was really nice. A few blocks away they were having a plant sale.

There were a lot of lovable dogs. I will close with this photo of this snappy dresser. Plan to go next year!Image


The State Farmers Market

ImageThe State Farmers Market is in Forrest Park, just south of the Hartsfield/Jackson Airport. This place is so fun on so many levels! Visually to see all the fruits and vegetables. The assortment is amazing. They have garbanzo beans, I have never seen those before.

ImageThen the other fun part are the prices. I got two tomatoes, two avocados, two jalapeno peppers, and 5 limes for $4 dollars. Bargains are always fun.


Wait, that’s not all happening at the Farmers Market, they have plants, trees, flowering plants, vegetables and containers.

ImageIt is so fun and beautiful.



There are a couple of places to eat there also, the main restaurant at the front of the market and there’s a little burrito place near the plants. I have not eaten at either, but when I do I will let you know.
