In just nine short months, Pinky Cole, a former television producer, took Westview's Slutty Vegan from a commercial kitchen to a food truck to a line-forming, celebrity-championed phenomenon. How Instagram played a major role.
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Buckhead was ground zero for gossip, celebrity sightings, and the city’s social scene. And when you were responsible for banging out 30 inches of Atlanta’s bold-faced names for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s popular "Peach Buzz" column, you scoured for scoop 24/7.

Life right now is kind of like a countdown to the premiere of the final season of "Breaking Bad" on August 11.
