Georgia Shakespeare

4484 Peachtree Rd, Atlanta, GA, 30319


Even in the toughest economic times, Georgia Shakespeare has never sacrificed artistic credibility. But this year, the company tried a summer without Shakespeare—and it didn’t play very well. People complained. The theater listened.

Krog Bar

112 Krog Street, Atlanta, GA, 30307


Kevin Rathbun’s wine-and-tapas bar promotes communal interaction rather than date-night tête-à-tête. The space is minuscule, and strangers start conversations over finger food such as duck prosciutto tramezzini and cured meats.
