Cheshire Bridge Road history

How long can we keep Cheshire Bridge weird?

Cheshire Bridge Road’s long history as one of Atlanta’s most notorious nightlife destinations began as an accident of geography. But the famous red light district has seen changes—and more change could be coming.

The Christiane Chronicles: I am a spoon freak. Don’t give me the wrong size.

I’ve always had a thing for spoons—their shape, their size, their depth, the roundness of their bowls. But far too often, I am given the wrong kind of spoon—if I get one at all. Plus, praise for Mary Ingersoll-Weeks and Alon’s Bakery's cheese counter.

The Christiane Chronicles: For the love of casseroles

Betsy McKay has kept the art of the casserole alive for almost eight years at a refined little spot in Morningside called...Casseroles. I can’t drive past the small easel she sets out on Lanier Boulevard without craving her tamale pie, chicken and biscuits, and eggplant Parmesan.

Home For Dinner: Lois Reitzes

Home for Dinner: Lois Reitzes of WABE’s City Lights

This may come as a surprise, but Lois Reitzes, 64, does not play music during dinner. The WABE’s City Lights host, who has been with the station for 38 years, gets too distracted. So tonight, it’s quiet in her cozy Morningside home, save for the voices of her husband, Don, a sociology professor at Georgia State University, and her son, Michael, a campaign strategist.
India

What I missed most when I moved from India to Atlanta? The steady stream of visitors to my home.

Cocooned in my Atlanta house, I felt safe, but not at home. It was just too quiet. I missed the mayhem. I missed, too, the unplanned, spontaneous comings and goings of neighbors. Everything in America seemed efficiently structured and excessively orchestrated, from children’s playdates to a cable technician’s visit.
