Hot tips to help you find the best places to go and things to do, save money or just help you get the information you need to maximize your stay here

CONCIERGE CORNER When visitors come to the city, it’s a good bet to find out information from our knowledgeable concierge friends. Eric Bradford, Lobby Concierge for Atlanta Marriott Marquis gives us his tips. When visitors come to Atlanta, I want them to experience something aside from the obvious tourist attractions. There is a fantastic Magic Show called Atlanta Magic Theater that is performed and presented by Peter Morrison. You will be amazed by his card tricks and disappearing tricks, but his mind reading will astonish you! He also encourages audience participation which makes things very interesting. This magic show is for all ages and located about 10 minutes from Downtown.

Dine at one of the best brunch places in town. Located in the Inman Park neighborhood about 10 minutes from Downtown, Hampton + Hudson is a wonderful place to get waffles, eggs and bacon, but the atmosphere is so relaxing. On a sunny day you can sit on the patio and listen to acoustic guitar performers. For dinner you may want to stop by arguably the best Italian restaurant close to Downtown. Sotto Sotto also located in Inman Park, will satisfy your taste buds with mouthwatering pastas, chicken options, and the best salmon I’ve ever tasted! The service is impeccable and the atmosphere is fantastic! Buy some of the South’s favorite candies and pralines at the Southern Candy Company. Opened in 1989 and now located in The Hub at Peachtree Center, you will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth with all the candies made right in the store. The caramelized pralines are my all time favorite!

S T N E V E R E M M U Whet your appetite for festivals, exhibitions and events dedicated to some of life’s simple and most rewarding pleasures: music, art and food. BY KAREN LOPEZ The rhythmic sounds of jazz drift through Piedmont Park for the 41st annual Atlanta Jazz Festival, Memorial Day Weekend, May 26 and 27. As one of the country’s longest running free jazz festivals, the Atlanta Jazz Festival boasts a variety of performers including jazz legends and up-and-coming artists on three stages – The Legends Stage, The Contemporary Stage and The Next Gen Stage, and for the first time in event history, an all-female lineup will be featured on Saturday. Weekend highlights include Dianne Reeves, Jon Batiste with The Dap-Kings, The Bad Plus and Jazzmeia Horn. Prior to festival weekend, 31 Days of Jazz events will be held

throughout the city beginning May 1. www.atlantafestivals.com Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic makes its U.S. debut at the High Museum of Art, June 3-Sept. 2. The exhibition, organized by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, celebrates one of the world’s most beloved literary characters and showcases the real people, relationships and inspirations behind author A. A. Milne’s and illustrator E. H. Shepard’s tales of friendship and simple joys. Key works in the exhibition include Shepard’s first Winnie-the-Pooh character portraits, more than 80 original drawings for the four Pooh

books, replicas of Milne’s son Christopher Robin’s stuffed animals that inspired story characters, memorabilia from more than 90 years of Pooh history and more. “Exploring a Classic” is the latest in a series of special exhibitions celebrating children’s book art and offers an opportunity for the museum to spark the imagination and engage young visitors in the arts. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Alliance Theatre will present “Winnie-thePooh,” a musical based on Milne’s stories June 7-July 8. www.high.org

THE ULTIMATE LEGO NINJAGO EXPERIENCE There’s nothing secret about all the fun you will have being a secret ninja. LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta’s The Ultimate NINJAGO Experience takes visitors through the moves of ninja training with a new and improved ninja camp. Hurtle through the laser maze and see how quickly you can make it past the barriers. The Ninja Skills Challenge tests speed and accuracy training by seeing how fast you can pound colors on a flashing wall, and the Buzz Mountain Challenge tests speed and precision (try not to trigger a volcano eruption). The Atlanta Miniland has been taken over by NINJAGO World characters including dragons and the Shark Army, and a themed scavenger hunt is available to try as well. Themed LEGO build activities will have you testing more precision and, if you’re lucky, the Master Builder will teach you some NINJAGO building tips. Don’t forget the 4D Theater, which is showing a new NINJAGO short film. By the time you’re finished, we bet Master Wu will even be impressed. Other can’t-miss spots at this attraction located in Phipps Plaza are the Kingdom Quest Ride, where guests shoot lasers to ward off evil to save the kingdom, and Merlin’s Apprentice, with kids and adults peddling as fast as possible. Make and race cars at the Build & Test Zone, and feast your eyes on Pirate Adventure Island. Here, kids can create a treasure map, get wet in the aquatic obstacle course after building a pirate ship, and climb through a maze of steps, ladders and rope bridges. Adults are welcome, but only with kids. Don’t worry, there’s an Adult Night every third Thursday of the month. The gift shop is strategically located at the exit, making it a nice pit stop while waiting for a shake at Johnny Rocket’s, directly across from the shop. www.atlanta.legolanddiscoverycenter.com -LM

Sasha Grossman, celebrity make-up artist and huge fan of Atlanta

WHERE DO YOU ATL? Atlanta’s growing movie scene has brought many people in to experience the city while a show, series or movie is being filmed. Sasha Grossman, celebrity make-up artist and make-up artist to the stars for the new NBC comedy-infused drama “Good Girls” recently stayed in Atlanta while on site for filming, and she shares her experience below. “This was my first time in Atlanta and I absolutely loved it! I had only heard things from friends who had shot movies and shows themselves in Atlanta, so I was excited to explore things like the BeltLine, and particularly all the incredible restaurants myself. Pretty soon after I arrived, I got to experience Porchfest in Decatur, and it was such an amazing introduction into the city! I wandered around listening to all the different local musicians perform outside. I sat in the

grass on people’s lawns, watched kids and adults alike dancing to a 20 person band right in the middle of town. I’ve never been to anything like that! Immersive and friendly, open and creative. It was a way for the crew to hang out on our day off and explore our new home! I was also in love with The Mercury at Ponce City Market. I’m a sucker for a 60’s theme and a dirty martini, so I would go over my scripts there on the weekends. It’s also how I began talking to the loveliest couple at the bar, who invited me over to their apartment a few weeks

later for a proper bison burger. Atlanta won me over because you could go out by yourself, and end up with a room of friends. I live in Ditmas Park in Brooklyn, and love the fact that I’m really close to some amazing music venues, There’s one of my favorite spots “Jalopy” in Redhook, where every Wednesday night they throw what they call “Roots and Ruckus” and bring musicians from all over to perform. This type of venue was something I was so happy to see embodied in Atlanta. There were even some musicians who performed at Porchfest who play at Jalopy too, so I felt strangely at home. I had the very exciting and unexpected event of getting engaged in Atlanta. Afterwards I was so excited that I made an appointment to look at dresses for fun to get a better sense of what I wanted at Kelly’s Closet without

expecting to make an immediate purchase. Well, I found my dress on my third dress in and didn’t look back. I celebrated afterwards at Barcelona at the make your own mimosa bar and brought my mom back that very next week. I also think I may have single handedly funded The Optimist. I had a different friend wanting to visit me in Atlanta every weekend, so it was my go-to Saturday night spot. I’m a little embarrassed to admit, that one night I had two meals in a row when I ran into a friend on my way out, and turned right back around. I’d be very curious to know if anyone else had ever spent seven hours there!

Another spot I have to say I loved, was LIPS for drag brunch! We went out with a group of our crew and actors, and had an absolute blast. We ended up there two weekends in a row, and I’ve still never seen a better Shania Twain impression. C M Overall, I fell completely in love with Atlanta. It was such an absolute delight working and Y playing there, and I made some incredible friends who I can’t wait to see again. As I stillCM have a list of about 12 restaurants in my phone MY I didn’t get to experience yet, I plan on making CY good on my promise to return. Atlanta has CMY such a unique energy about it, and is made up of so many fascinating people. Not only was K is a great place to work for five months, but I felt genuinely at home there, and taken in by its residents. I miss the High Museum and its beautiful exhibits, the dark, good music vibes of a late night at The Earl, my favorite seat at the bar at Mercury, and walking along the BeltLine looking out at the city. I miss weekend dates with my new friends, finding new things to show to my old friends coming to visit, and being a stranger in a welcoming place. See you soon Atlanta!”

Ponce City Market

ALL HAIL THE HALLS Visiting food halls is a popular pastime in our busy city, perfect for communal conversation over good food. Many award-winning chefs helm restaurants in Atlanta, and many have outposts at these halls. BY LIESL MERKEL

PONCE CITY MARKET Ever since Atlanta locals heard the first mention of Ponce City Market taking over the historic Sears, Roebuck & Co. building on Ponce de Leon Avenue, the excitement has grown. Now that it’s open, visitors can hop off the adjacent Atlanta BeltLine to sample the wares of the Central Food Hall. Be sure to hit Biltong Bar, where Justin Anthony of restaurants 10 Degrees South and Yebo sells hand-held savory pies, organic beef jerky, South African wines and air-dried biltong. The team behind the wildly popular Chai Pani in Decatur runs Botiwalla, handing out Indian street food like marsala tri-tip rolls grilled on charcoal and wrapped in naan, savory puris (puffed flour crisps) and pineapple turmeric soda. El Super Pan marks the return of loved

chef Hector Santiago, who serves Latin inspired sandwiches and housemade auguas tropicales. Biscuits, old fashioned coleslaw and collards accompany fried chicken by the piece or in the sandwich at Hop’s Chicken, the creation of another local chef and James Beard Award winner Linton Hopkins. Check out his space next door, H&F Burger, for one of the best burgers in town. W.H. Styles Fish Camp reels in another James Beard Award winner, Chef Anne Quatrano, at her casual fish shack swimming with Po’ Boys, oysters and chowder. The King of Pops Bar, selling the famous locally made ice pops in Poptail form, is not to be missed. Guinness and a chocolate sea salt pop? Well, sure. They make a mean grilled cheese, too. www.poncecitymarket.com

SWEET AUBURN CURB MARKET Celebrating 100 years, the Sweet Auburn Curb Market started in 1918 in a large tent, selling produce from local farmers to the city citizens. Today, the market occupies the original Municipal Market building downtown, and you can still support farmers with many stalls dedicated to produce, seafood and meats. Stop in at one of the eateries such as Grindhouse Killer Burgers, showing grindhouse movies projected on the wall above the bar and serving handspun milkshakes, crinkle fries and, of course, burgers. Other places to eat include Sweet Auburn BBQ (slow cooked meat, Jamaican jerk collard greens and SweetWater honey beans, baked with local SweetWater 420 beer); Metro Deli & Soul Food (made to order sandwiches, cooked vegetables and Ethiopian-influenced dishes); and Afrodish Restaurant (curry chicken, plantains, beans and rice, and jerk chicken). Top off your experience at Panbury’s Double Crust Pies or pick something tasty from the Sweet Auburn Bakery - maybe a red velvet whoopie pie, or sweet potato cheesecake. www.thecurbmarket.com

HARRY’S CARAVACA MARKET Puerto Rican chef, author and television and radio personality Harry Pagancoss has gathered the world right at your fingertips at Harry’s Caravaca Market in Midtown. Four stalls and the Provisions Market circle around communal tables for guests to experience good food and company. After Harry came to Atlanta, he landed a contract with Turner Broadcasting to film a travelogue show for Latin American countries. He decided to stay, and has turned his travels into a moveable feast for us. The Taste Bar offers specials such as Arroz Con Pollo and Sausage Cassoulet, as well as Peru-inspired ceviche and Venezuelan corn arepas. Pair any of these with a Caipirinha or Mojito for a well-rounded international meal. Settle on a sangria and a ham croqueta if you prefer. Order a savory and sweet Breakfast Mallorca at the stall called Harry Bakes, with ham, provolone, egg, butter, and powdered sugar dusting a Puerto Rican sweet roll. Medialunas – sweet Argentinian crescent rolls – are also filled with savory breakfast items. Don’t miss the decadent Guava Ecstasy Cake, paired perfectly with either an espresso, Americano or Cubano.

The Beer & Pizza Bar is where you’ll go to have a slice and a pint with a rotating array of craft beers, and a delicious selection of various pizza styles. The Wine Bar offers wines from around the world in a European style fashion, inviting conversation on a perfect evening or afternoon. Pick up ready-made sandwiches, and sauces, wines, chips, coffee, chocolate and even empanadas to go at the Provisions Market. Pagancoss says “To me it is important to do something that gives, providing jobs and celebrating the city and the State of Georgia. Caravaca is a product of those principles I hold dear and I hope people will support us. I want Caravaca to be a beacon of uniqueness, goodness and celebration of not only our city but the diversity of the world.” www.caravacamarket.com

KROG STREET MARKET Gather at a communal table in Krog Street Market, a 1920s rehabilitated warehouse in Inman Park. Then, dig in to the carefully selected array of market stalls alongside a few southern-grown restaurants and retailers. Gu’s Dumplings, run by celebrated Chef Gu and his wife, formerly of the beloved Gu’s

Bistro on Buford Highway, provides a bountiful Szechuan experience with heaps of noodles and steaming dumplings. Craving a good fried chicken sandwich? You’ll want to go to Richards’ Southern Fried Hot Chicken for their mouthwatering version, perfectly seasoned and topped with pimiento cheese and pickles, served Classic, Hot or Richards’ Hot. The acclaimed Ticonderoga Club is open nightly (never Wednesday) and acts as a gathering place for schemes and revelry, and also sipping innovative cups. Order a Velvet Fog - Belle Meade Bourbon, Bitter Bianco and French Vermouth – to enjoy with throwback menu items of Deviled Ham Snack, Steak Tartare, Cobb Salad and Sweet and Sour Charred Pork. Top off your trip to Krog Street Market at Little Tart Bakeshop, serving pastries and tarts, galettes and sables with local and organic ingredients, and also a full coffee bar with local Octane beans. G.C. BBQ, Superica and Varuni Napoli and more all add to the difficulty you will have deciding what to eat. www.krogstreetmarket.com Continued on page 26

DINNER AND A SHOW?

Continued from page 25

Perhaps you’re going to see one of the hottest tickets in town: Hamilton at The Fox Theatre, May 22-June 10. If you haven’t heard, Hamilton follows the story of America’s founding father Alexander Hamilton, but it’s also called a story of America then, as told by America now. Hamilton was an immigrant from the West Indies, and was also the nation’s first Treasury Secretary. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, rap, R&B, blues and Broadway into a worthy score fit for not only a statesman (or woman). The book, music and lyrics are coined and penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda with help from Thomas Kail as director and Andy Blankenbuehler as choreographer. Make a night of it and have a bite before or after the show at these dining destinations around The Fox Theatre:

The Canteen is a micro food hall in Midtown’s Technology Square comprised of three stalls -- TGM Bagel, Fred’s Meat & Bread and Yalla -- and also Square Bar, overlooking the plaza. The people behind the popular The General Muir opened this destination designed as a gathering place to serve the people who need it most: Georgia Tech college kids and office workers. Line up for Chef Todd Ginsberg’s famous burgers at Fred’s Meat & Bread, as well as Po’ Boys, cheesesteaks and more. Pick up breakfast from TGM Bagel - an egg salad or smoked salmon bagel sandwich sounds good - or perhaps a lunch of Matzoh Ball Soup and sandwiches on soft rolls. Yalla’s Mediterranean focused stall tantalizes with plates of Israeli Salad, falafel and a chicken shawarma bowl. Square Bar greets the sunrise with pressed juices and energy shots (college kids, take note!) and then moves to frozen drinks, cocktails and other goodies later in the day. www.thecanteenatl.com

Livingston Restaurant + Bar Located right across the street from the Fox, Livingston has a pre-theater menu of a cocktail and small plates, and a pre-theater brunch buffet, all elegantly southern-inspired.

Baraonda Ristorante Italiano This is a fantastic place for grabbing Pizze della Casa - artisanal pizzas - such as Margherita or Fra Diavolo, made with Calabrese peppers, spicy salami and mozzarella.

Livingston Restaurant + Bar

Mary Mac’s Tea Room Have your meat and three, and a glass of sweet tea at this loved institution before heading down Ponce de Leon Avenue to the Fox.

Hudson Grille Midtown Have a draft beer and a burger, or a menu of familiar American fare.

The Melting Pot Stop in for fondue before the show. With choices such as Wisconsin Cheddar or Fiesta, Teriyaki sirloin, Atlantic salmon and milk chocolate melted with caramel, you can’t go wrong.

ATLANTA BARBEQUE SMACKDOWN Father’s Day is coming up and we can’t forget the fierce loyalty people (and maybe your favorite dad) have for barbecue. In honor of the finger-licking art form that is barbecue, we’ve rounded up some of the best spots.

hickory-smoked wings will take a game day to the next level with brisket making for the perfect sandwich. Be sure to try The Tomminator, a bed of crispy tater tots drowned in savory Brunswick Stew and topped with cheese. Where: Eastside, Candler Park

never just one rib – more like one slab or two. What You Should Order: Fat Matt’s ribs are the true star of the show with a fall-off-thebone pedigree and complemented by sides like “rum” baked beans and coleslaw. Where: Midtown, Morningside

FAT MATT’S RIB SHACK

SMOKE RING

The neon lights are bright and the ribs are oh so right at Fat Matt’s Rib Shack in Morningside. An ATL icon, Fat Matt’s has been kicking out the succulent and savory goodness for more than 20 years. With live blues playing nightly and funky vibes aplenty, the choice is

Since opening in 2013, Smoke Ring has been Castleberry Hill’s go-to destination for prime meat mastery – and not just for the usual barbecue mainstays of pork and chicken. No, Smoke Ring keeps things seasonal and diverse, smoking everything from alligator and duck to lamb and salmon, all incorporating Smoke Ring’s signature touch for unique Georgia-style barbecue. What You Should Order: Smoke Ring’s smoked jumbo wings deserve their own ZIP code. These things are massive and are paired with white BBQ sauce. Where: Downtown, Castleberry Hill

FOX BROS. BAR-B-Q Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q serves as the standard in ATL’s ‘cue scene. This crowd favorite brings a little bit of Texas in its barbecue style with a focus on cooking slow and allowing the rich hickory smoke to permeate the meats, imbuing unadulterated flavor. What You Should Order: Fox Bros.

GIVE VEGETABLES ONE MORE CHANCE. MAKE BIG PLANS, BUT LIVE SPONTANEOUSLY. SAVOR ATLANTA ONE BITE AT A TIME.

SWEET AUBURN BBQ While you can still find classic slow-smoked meat marvels on the menu, Sweet Auburn’s penchant for Asian-style influence -- using ingredients like sesame, pineapple and ginger -- makes the selections true flavor standouts. What You Should Order: Sweet Auburn’s Southern Seoul sandwich is downright soulful with Korean-style short ribs, cucumbers, pickled carrots, red onion and sriracha aioli. Where: Eastside, Poncey-Highland

TWIN SMOKERS BBQ While most spots on our list tend to focus on one particular style, Twin Smokers decided to bring them all under one roof utilizing its namesake smokers to dole out barbecue doused in both mesquite and hickory. Slabs of meat that smoke for 12 hours are savory, moist and packed with flavor. What You Should Order: It’s all about the brisket. Whether sliced up or between two pieces of bread, the beef cut has been highly lauded as one of the best in Atlanta. Where: Downtown -Chris Watkins

LYRIC LEWIN

Sampling fare from food stalls is a great way to experience the city, but after you’ve tasted that magnificent burger or perfect fried chicken sandwich with perhaps a scoop of gelato, it’s good to have some healthy options. Recess bills themselves as a “healthy-ish” food stall at Krog Street Market and their food is so good that you won’t regret trying out something healthy. Born from the Castellucci Hospitality Group, which also created Cooks & Soldiers, Double Zero, The Iberian Pig, Bar Mercado and Sugo, Recess is open for dinner and lunch with a vegetable-focused menu at an affordable price.

Draper James

PICK OUT A GIFT FOR MOM OR DAD Mother’s Day falls on May 13 and Father’s Day is June 17. While you may take Mom to brunch or join Dad for a round of golf, you’ll need gifts, too. Atlanta retailers are here to help. BY CAROL CARTER

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS Kendra Scott operates retail stores at Shops Around Lenox, Perimeter Mall and Avalon. She launched her now-famous jewelry brand with $500 from a spare bedroom in her home. That was in 2002. Today, her brand is something of a household name. Kendra Scott jewelry is pricey, but that’s because it’s made of 14K gold, diamonds and gemstones. Any mom would love a Kendra Scott necklace or pair of earrings. Another idea: Put Mom’s favorite photograph in a filigree fame. Or, surprise her with a Kendra Scott candle with its signature fragrance of lily and blonde wood. Choose the fancy version that comes in a tumbler or the more affordable votive. www.kendrascott.com

Actress Reese Witherspoon named her store Draper James after her grandparents, the folks she says taught her everything she knows about gracious southern living. Walk into her store at Shops Around Lenox and you’ll feel the Southern hospitality immediately when the sales associates greet you with a warm “Hello” and an offer of sweet tea. For your mom, consider one of Draper James’s wicker handbags. The Draper James Magnolia Love Circle dress is washable thanks to its cotton/lycra blend and features Draper James’s signature magnolia print. Reese’s southern heritage shows up in everything from the magnolia print to the doormat that welcomes guests with a big “howdy,” scrawled in script. www.draperjames.com

The creative mind behind Dixon Rye in Westside Ironworks at 1085 Howell Mill Road is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. Among the unique finds at Dixon Rye, Mom might love an Astier de Villatte X John Derian bird plate. The entire plate collection is beautiful and, in some cases, fun, too. www.dixonrye.com Nearby at Westside Provisions District, consider a pair of heart pajamas available at Roller Rabbit or a set of round seagrass placemats from Hudson Grace. www.westsideprovisions.com

FATHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS Miller Brothers, an upscale shop for men is appropriately located in Buckhead, Atlanta’s home to high-end fashion. Greg Miller picked out three items Dad might like. Running from a little pricey to expensive, suggestions include the store’s clever bottle openers, which Dad will want to leave out in the open rather than tossing into a drawer; driver head covers featuring an American flag and animal

are a foam tomahawk, a tomahawk cap and, of course, a T-shirt. Ticket purchasers receive $30 added value per ticket to use for concessions or retail at the ballpark. www.braves.com

Headquartered just a bit north of Atlanta in Buford, Okabashi manufactures madein-the-USA shoes built for comfort and health. Okabashi’s shoes feature arch and heel support. What kind of shoes are they? We’re talking flip-flops, sandals and clogs. Order online or perhaps find them at select Walgreen’s and Target stores in Atlanta. www.okabashi.com

The distinctive collection at Elk Head Clothing in Ponce City Market is designed by owner Garrett Hilgendorf, who says he blends strands of Scandinavian design with American rugged individualism. Dad might be very into one of Hilgendorf’s wallets or one of his distinctive duffel bags. www.elkheadclothing.com

The Atlanta Braves play San Diego at home on Father’s Day. The first 10,000 dads will receive a gate giveaway yet to be announced. Even better, after the game, dads and kids can play 20 minutes of catch right on the field. Need a gift to go with that? Some of the most popular items in the Braves Clubhouse Store (there’s one at CNN Center and one at the ballpark)

Onward Reserve, with stores in Buckhead and Ponce City Market, crafted its name and dedication to authenticity from a tale about Teddy Roosevelt. And what’s a more authentic Father’s Day gift than a necktie? www.onwardreserve.com Right: Braves jersey from the Braves Clubhouse Store
