INSIDER INFO

INSIDER INFO Hot tips to help you find the best places to go and things to do, save your 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. Rory Rule, Lead Concierge at JW Marriott Atlanta Buckhead and Member Les Clefs d’Or, USA, gives us some tips. “There are so many experiences to have when visiting Atlanta over the holidays. I know the holidays have started as soon as Garden Nights, Holiday Lights opens at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I go every year. It is amazing for family, couples or even if you want to wander alone. You can pick up a

s’mores kit and head for the closest fire pit or a hot toddy and wander the gardens. Taking the little ones to ride the Pink Pig at Macy’s Lenox Square has been a tradition for years. While at Lenox Square or Phipps Plaza, stop in and take a picture with the ‘real’ Santa, as he is at both. How? It’s holiday magic. I cannot imagine a more appropriate theater to see The Atlanta Ballet’s “Nutcracker,” than the Fox Theatre. “The Santaland Diaries,” a more adult and risqué holiday show, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “A Christmas Carol” are all theatrical events heading this way. Stone Mountain Park’s Snow Mountain is the perfect place to enjoy the snowy hillside tubing experience many from the South miss. Spend the day at the park and see the parade, the

live shows, 4D theater with a holiday themed movie and Snow Angel for Stone Mountain Christmas. Reservations are required. I am big on food gifts. Logan Turnpike Mill’s freshly stone ground, old-fashioned speckled yellow grits from the Dekalb Farmer’s Market is the best holiday souvenir gift to take home. Doux South pickles . . . amazing. Either would be a hit as a hostess gift from the South. Pop up holiday shops like Miracle on Monroe, the pop up at The Shops Around Lenox or the German shops at Atlantic Station will offer amazing amounts of holiday ornaments and décor. The Crafted store at Lenox Square offers locally made artistic and functional gifts. Lucy’s Market is no longer just a hidden gem, but a go-to place for all things local and gourmet.

Fernbank Museum of Natural History: Find a pair of (real) oak leaf earrings that have been dipped in iridescent copper. Pick up a “Tricerataco” – a taco holder in the shape of a triceratops. Robert Downey Jr. purchased two of these gems when he visited Fernbank. Start the kids out early with “Quantum Physics for Babies,” “Rocket Science for Babies,” and “Newtonian Physics for Babies,” and planet wine stoppers in the shape of Earth, Saturn and other planets will add a cosmic sparkle to anyone’s festive occasion. For the person who has everything, consider a pair of Tacosaurus socks. Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum: In this gift shop, you can purchase dessert plates that depict flowers of the first ladies, a Barbara Bush pearl necklace (affordable), an Edith Wilson fan pin (fan as in a device for cooling off not screaming people in the bleachers) and Mary Todd Lincoln earrings. For the future president on your list, consider the Air Force One play set. World of Coca-Cola: The gift shop here practically fizzes with shelf upon shelf and rack upon rack of Coca-Cola themed tchotchkes. There are die-cast cars, retro tins, key chains, magnets, pet accessories, clocks, thermometers and hats. Georgia Aquarium: Choose a plush penguin or whale shark as reminders of some of the best-loved swimmers in the aquarium. Select an articulated seahorse ornament or, for the sea creature-loving child on your list, consider a big glow octopus t-shirt. Atlanta Botanical Garden: The Garden Gift Shop features plenty of botanical-themed merchandise. Find jewelry from artists from all over the United States including a necklace made from blown glass beads created by Melissa Schmidt as well as functional birdhouses made by an Atlanta design team, as well as plush woodland creatures, themed books and bug houses for the children. The really great news is that you may visit all of these gift shops without having to buy admission to the museums. At Georgia Aquarium, ask for assistance from security to visit the gift shop. To shop at the World of Coca-Cola store, enter through the doors in Pemberton Place located to the left of the main entrance. And remember, there are still other museums with gift shops throughout the city. -C.C.

ATLANTA’S 14 MOST ICONIC DISHES When you think of dining in Atlanta, some iconic dishes just jump to mind. How many of these Atlanta iconic entrees have you tried? Ann’s Snack Bar – Ghetto Burger. Though, sadly, Miss Ann has passed away, her legendary juicy burger lives on. Antico Pizza – The San Gennaro. Pretty much an overnight success, the pizza spot has grown to several Atlanta locations.

to add to your holiday dinner table. Of course, you don’t have to wait for special occasions to have this fantastic dish. Just visit Mary Mac’s in Midtown. Paschal’s Restaurant – Fried Chicken. A place steeped in history like Paschal’s must have an iconic dish that has stood the test of time. The restaurant played a big role in the civil rights movement, serving as a meeting place for many leaders.

Royal China – Dim Sum. This treat has become the “other” Atlanta brunch. Diners love it as carts float by with tempting offers, and patrons are free to pick what they like. Sublime Doughnuts – A-Town Doughnut. There’s so much more to this than the letter. A chocolate glaze gives way to a soft pastry filled with rich cream. The Varsity – Chili Dog and Frosted Orange. The chili dog at this famous restaurant, The Varsity, is an iconic Atlanta dish if ever there was one. The Vortex Bar & Grill – Burger. The coronary bypass burger, or really any burger, is worth a trek to the Vortex. - Malika Bowling

Life is short. Carpe Vinum. Antico

Better Half – Silk Handkerchief Pasta. Though the menu of this Midtown restaurant changes weekly, this one item never leaves it. One taste of the rich, light pasta bursting with flavor of sweet and savory, thanks to a jam and mushroom combo, and you’ll see why. Ecco – Fried Goat Cheese. There’s something about the fried goat cheese at Ecco that keeps customers coming back. The fried cheese balls are drizzled with honey that puts them over the top. Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q – Wings. Quickly becoming a favorite in the barbecue world, Fox Bros. has customers driving from great distances to experience their ‘cue. But, the wings are also a fantastic item that brings customers back. Kimball House – Oysters. Located in Decatur, this incredibly popular spot churns out excellent cocktails and is known for oysters as well. Hankook Taqueria – Calamari Tacos. Hankook is a fusion of Korean and Mexican, and – whoa – is this a good marriage. It gets quite crowded at lunch hours; visit off-peak for little or no wait. Holeman and Finch – Cheeseburger. Even though this item is available anytime now, it caused quite a stir and quickly became one of Atlanta’s favorites and most soughtafter burgers particularly because it was only available after 10 p.m. Mary Mac’s Tea Room – Tomato Pie. One of the many dishes you will find in the restaurant’s recipe book, it is one you’ll want
