On Monday, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms called for Atlantans to stay at home unless absolutely necessary to leave, while Governor Brian Kemp called for only called for high-risk persons to shelter in place. Here’s your Tuesday morning update:
Parking in Atlanta can be a nightmare, especially when all you want is a bite to eat. So we've rounded up where you can park for free. No, not complementary valet and no, not in the occasional open space found on a side street after rounding the block three times. These are free lots next to the restaurant itself.
On the surface, each of Atlanta's fast-casual burrito joints is virtually indistinguishable. Sure, some give you free chips, others offer barbecue sauce, queso, or green chiles, but at the end of the day, you start with a tortilla, you get rice, beans, meat, a choice of salsas, cheese, sour cream, and/or guacamole. Which begs the question: Which of these fast-casual chains is the best?
Ranked among the best in the city, Bell Street Burritos sells 300 burritos a day. But back in 2010, owner Matt Hinton was just an adjunct professor of theology and religion trying to mimic a recipe from the much-loved Tortillas.
The absolute worst part about my otherwise enviable job? Parking. Depending on where I go, I’m left to navigate wonky meters, spiral-of-death garages (Empire State South), ridiculously steep terrain (Bell Street Burritos in south Buckhead), and dark, suspicious lots (basically everywhere in Little Five Points and East Atlanta).
I have a secret fantasy: I want to spank waiters. Why? Because wine service in Atlanta, on average, is abominable. Two reasons: First, when you order a bottle, waiters are far too eager to pour through the entire thing when you aren’t looking. Hands off, garçon. I’ll pour my own wine and drink at my own speed.
