It’s time to celebrate the month of love, and what better way to do this than to eat, drink, and be merry! In this issue, we present our comprehensive Dining Guide with fresh reviews of the hottest new restaurants on the scene as well as the classics.

The South River Forest has been a figure of Atlanta’s history for centuries with it being Indigenous land, a prison farm, a dumping ground, and later, a nature reserve. In 2021, it was announced that a new police training facility would be built on the land, surprising and angering many Atlanta residents. In this feature, we examine how this impacts various communities in relation to the city’s history and the ongoing issues faced throughout the country.
Lastly, February is American Heart Month, and we have some great tips for maintaining a healthy heart in this issue. Look into how the American Heart Association is helping Atlanta become a heart-healthy city.
