ACFB - Plant A Row for the Hungry
Topic: Local Information 2:57 pm EDT, Mar 10, 2009

How Does Plant a Row Work?

Participation is easy! Atlanta gardeners are urged literally to plant one extra row of veggies in their gardens and donate surplus produce directly to one of the designated drop-off sites throughout metro Atlanta. Click here for a list of drop-off sites. These agencies will distribute food from your garden to the residents in your community who need and appreciate it the most.

Many Plant a Row donations also come from gardeners with unexpectedly good crops who can't stand to see wholesome foods go to waste.

I will feed the hungry.

Solving Atlanta’s Crime Statistics Mystery « Mostly Media
Topic: Local Information 11:03 am EST, Feb 15, 2009

Kent says Mayor Franklin is telling outright lies when she says, as she did again recently, that crime in Atlanta is, statistically, down. Kent says Franklin is lying because crimes in the City of Atlanta are actually up, but there’s no way to prove this because APD is not providing accurate stats for interested parties…. the “interested parties” being local journalism outlets such as The Sunday Paper and the AJC; that any efforts by journalists-with-money-behind-’em to find reliable and accurate crime stats are being thwarted by APD and/or, I presume, City Hall.

Atlanta has a long history of fabricating crime statistics.

Auctions help break stalled condo logjam |
Topic: Local Information 4:54 pm EST, Feb  5, 2009

tlanta’s condominium market was so hot a few years ago, an entire building would presell in a matter of weeks.

Element at Atlantic Station in Midtown was one of those must-have properties. Its 322 units were all under contract months before the building opened.

Even a fire that destroyed the partially built project in July 2005 failed to dim Element’s appeal. Just one contract was canceled, and Element was rebuilt.

But those supposed sales were a mirage. Half of Element’s buyers abandoned their contracts, and today the developer, the Lane Co., still owns 35 percent of the units.

Now Lane wants to shed a bunch of those Element homes all at one time. Boston-based Accelerated Marketing Partners will auction 40 units Feb. 28 at the W Atlanta downtown.

Toulouse - An American Bistro
Topic: Local Information 3:01 pm EST, Jan  5, 2009

Toulouse is a casual bistro serving American cuisine with a French influence. The restaurant is located at 2293 Peachtree Road, a few miles south of Buckhead, overlooking Peachtree Creek. Toulouse serves dinner beginning at 5:30, seven nights a week. We are happy to accept reservations. The price range of our entrees is primarily $15.00 - $20.00.

The restaurant itself is a cozy, open loft with hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and exposed brick walls. Our open kitchen allows the aromas of our wood burning grill and brick oven to infuse with the dining room and lends a welcoming warmth to the room. Everything we serve from our kitchen is homemade, including our pastries and our bread, which we are consistently told is the best in town.

Wine is an important feature at Toulouse, and we offer most of our wines by the glass. Three times a month, we host wine tastings that are a great deal of fun as well as informative. Our menu is designed with wine in mind and offers wine suggestions to go with each of our entrees. Toulouse is a wonderful relaxed environment to enjoy, learn about and try new wines.

I just got a voicemail from the Chef at Toulouse, telling us that they would be happy to make the AMAZING Tomato Basil soup for us on our one year wedding anniversary that we had there almost two years ago that is no longer on the menu. The owner, George Tice has class.

This has been my favorite restaurant in Atlanta for several years. Very cozy environment, nice but not "too nice", casual elegance fits the ambiance and the food. Try the pork chops.

I’m swamped, but here’s a video of a uniquely Atlanta experience. And if you like to learn about things the (slightly) old-fashioned way, here’s the story, with photos.

Costa Rica Surfing: Recommendations
Topic: Local Information 1:33 am EDT, Jul 24, 2008


Costa Rica is not known for offering tremendous size in its waves, but rather, consistent head-high surf at any time of the year. Many people think that the best way of surfing in Costa Rica is to rent a car and try to follow the surf. This, with very few exceptions, is the best way to spend a lot of unnecessary time in your car and miss the waves. Costa Rica's surf areas are defined by location and seasons which make surfing in Costa Rica very user friendly.
