Where guns go to die
The Atlanta field office of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives seized more than 900 firearms last fiscal year. Some end up in museums, while others are repurposed for use by law enforcement. But most of them are destroyed.
Cookbook: Anne Quatrano’s “Summerland”
When I asked Anne Quatrano, the brilliant chef behind Atlanta’s most enduring fine-dining restaurant, why she’d decided to put out a cookbook now, she replied, “Most people ask why I’ve taken so long to write one in the first place!” Her gorgeous opus, [Summerland] (Rizzoli, $39.95), finally arrives October 1, but it’s not as if she’s been lollygagging.

Women of Style & Substance honored at CHOA benefit
The honorees being feted and fed at Monday’s sixth annual Women of Style & Substance luncheon benefit for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at the St. Regis hotel in Buckhead could rightfully be lauded for their philanthropic endeavors. But these same eight women also possess the ability to effortlessly glide down a fashion runway in fabulous frocks (and dangerously high heels) in front of a sold-out crowd consisting of hundreds of the city’s most high profile women. This was, of course, after they braved a hellacious valet line that snaked down West Paces Ferry and threatened to collide with oncoming traffic on Peachtree Road (Note to St. Regis management: When your ballroom guests use “Did you park across the street at Whole Foods and run across West Paces Ferry too?!” as a luncheon conversation ice breaker, it may be time to re-evaluate your current valet parking set up).

The most Atlanta-centric moments from Wednesday night's "Conan" on TBS, shooting episodes this week at the Tabernacle downtown:
BB’s bulbous, hand-rolled, kettle-boiled beauties have earned loyal fans both inside and outside the Perimeter. These lookers make ideal breakfast sandwiches: Try a garlicky everything bagel to enliven eggs, bacon, and cheese.
Once a small chain with several metro-area units, the sole Bagelicious now resides in Marietta’s Market Plaza shopping center. The satisfyingly plump but not oversized bagels are ideal toasted and with just a cream cheese schmear.
Stop by to pick up bagels for home or stay for breakfast. The shop offers some of the city’s finest cured fish; try sable or creamy whitefish salad in addition to the classic lox.
Doughnut superstar Kamal Grant puts some serious swagger in fried dough with variations like fresh strawberry, Orange Dream Star, and dulce de leche.
