Christmas Memories

The response to last month’s 20th anniversary edition of INtown was overwhelming. We received tweets, emails, phone calls, Facebook comments and even handwritten letters thanking us for the trip down memory lane. As I suspected, our most popular stories were about the creation of the BeltLine, the recollections of the 1996 Summer Olympics and the ode to long-gone Oxford Books. A number of former customers and employees got in touch about Oxford, including one who mentioned the years of having to work on Christmas Day. That stirred up quite a few more memories for me. Oxford Books and the also much-missed Tower Records were both open on Christmas Day. After you had unwrapped the ugly sweater you didn’t want and stuffed yourself with turkey and dressing, you could head to the city and buy a book or the latest record. I have fond memories of finishing up with family and then

meeting up with friends to go shopping at both stores on Christmas afternoon. That would usually be followed by a movie and then a midnight stop at Waffle House. In the last couple of years, retail stores have started opening on Thanksgiving Day, so folks can get a jump on those Black Friday sales. But since Oxford and Tower closed, there’s nowhere to shop and hang out on Christmas Day. That bums me out. Big time. Buying music and books on Amazon just doesn’t have the same appeal. I was pleasantly surprised to see that many Intown restaurants will be open on Christmas Day (turn to page 41) for those who have no interest in cooking. Not every family is into gathering around the tree and the usual holiday trappings, so some alternatives are welcome. This year, in lieu of Oxford and Tower, I’ll be in North Carolina with my mother gambling away my inheritance on Christmas Day. We’ve never done anything like that before, but this year we decided to break out of the Christmas mold. If you happen to be in Cherokee, I’ll be feeding the nickel slots. However you decide to spend the holiday, I wish you happiness and peace. I’m looking forward to 2015 and kicking of INtown’s next 20 years.

IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD FEATURES, NEWS & EVENTS

INTO THE WEST Ground broken for Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside Trail By Collin Kelley INtown Editor The Westside Trail, the next major milestone for the Atlanta BeltLine’s network of trails, transit, parks and green space, broke ground last month hoping to be a revitalization catalyst just like its Eastside forerunner. The three-mile Westside Trail will run from University Avenue in Adair Park to Lena Street at Washington Park. “This is a historic moment for southwest Atlanta and the entire City,” said Mayor Kasim Reed. “The Westside Trail represents an unprecedented $43 million investment in the future of southwest Atlanta, and its construction will move us closer to our goal of fully building out the Atlanta BeltLine to connect every corner of our city. It is a game-changer, and it will bring new vitality and investment to the Westside’s historic neighborhoods.” The design of the Westside Trail project was led by Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. in partnership with the Georgia Department of Transportation and support from a design team led by Kimley-Horn and Associates. The initial phase of a project this complex

normally takes two years to complete. Yet the process took only nine months with the help of a unique partnership between the City of Atlanta, the Georgia Department of Transportation, the USDOT Federal Highway Administration, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and its design team. Construction of this project is expected to take approximately 24 months. When completed, the Westside Trail will have a 14-foot wide concrete multi-use trail along the former railroad corridor. The project will also include the construction of 14 access points, 11 of which are ADA-accessible, along with lighting, security cameras, signage, way-finding, mile-markers, and underground infrastructure. An expansion of the Atlanta BeltLine arboretum will blend with hundreds of large, native trees and integrate more than 30 acres of inviting and usable new green space. The project will be constructed in preparation for future transit that is currently is the planning stages. The Westside Trail connects four schools and four parks, as well as the residents of 10 southwest Atlanta neighborhoods to public transit, existing community businesses and future economic development sites. In 2013, the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded the City of Atlanta

A groundbreaking ceremony was held for the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail on Nov. 12 near Adair Park. Handling the shovels were (l-r) Jamie Kennedy, a Board Member at Cox, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Paul Morris, President of BeltLine, and Atlanta Police Chief George Turner. Photo by Phil Mosier

an $18 million TIGER V grant to help fund construction of this $43 million phase of the Atlanta BeltLine. The grant significantly expedited the construction of the Westside Trail. The Georgia Department of Transportation enabled the purchase of the land via a $9.5 million local match. The remaining costs are funded by both public and private sources, including a lead gift of $5 million from Jim Kennedy, honorary co-chair of Atlanta BeltLine Capital Campaign Committee, through the James M. Cox Foundation and PATH Foundation. “This groundbreaking represents the fulfillment of a long-held promise to the neighbors of west Atlanta, made possible through a remarkable public and private partnership at the local, state, and national levels,” said Paul Morris, President and CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. West End resident Danielle Carney said she hopes the new trail will spur more economic development and housing, just as the Eastside Trail has done for the Old Fourth Ward. “The BeltLine is only two blocks from my home, so I’m excited about it and so are my neighbors,” Carney said. “The Westside Trail is going to expose people to neighborhoods they didn’t know anything about.” Carney said she’s also looking forward to the transit aspect of the BeltLine. “I don’t take MARTA very often, because it doesn’t stop exactly where I want to go, but if I could hop on a streetcar and take it to the Target

on Moreland Avenue, that would be amazing,” she said. Another Westview resident, Ayana Gabriel, said she bought her home in the neighborhood specifically for access to the BeltLine. Her property borders the future Enota Park and she can see the trail from her back deck. “I’d never heard of the BeltLine until I came over here and started looking for homes,” Gabriel said. “When I found out about it, it spurred me to buy my house. I started attending Enota Park planning meetings before my house was even under contract.” Gabriel was so taken by the idea of the project, that she eventually joined the board of the BeltLine Task Force Allocation District. She wants to see more homeowners in the neighborhood and better housing options for people of all ages. “We all love our neighborhood and we want people to come, buy homes, raise families and open businesses,” she said. “We’re excited.” For more about the Westside Trail project, visit beltline.org/ westsidetrail.

Atlanta Memorial Park gets repairs, rejuvenation By Collin Kelley INtown Editor The Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy (AMPC) has reached 49 percent of its fundraising goal for its operations budget, the organization’s executive director says. The Conservancy plans major renovations and upgrades to Bobby Jones Golf Course and Bitsy Grant Tennis Center, part of a long-range Master Plan. While the final draft Master Plan is under review with the city, AMPC is moving forward at the request of the Department of Parks and Recreation to make a difference on the greenspace west of Northside Drive. While big changes are still to come, smaller, significant ones are happing on a regular basis, including the ongoing repair of the sewage pipe that crosses over Peachtree Creek in Memorial Park.

The pump station along Woodward Way has been removed and the second pump station along Wesley Drive was removed last week, according to a report in the AMPC monthly update. The temporary pipes and rocks in the creek bed allow for the crews to work in the creek to make the repairs, thereby reducing the impact to the trees along the upper bank. No new footings will go in the creek bed. Instead, the new sewage pipe will be supported by concrete piers along the slope. More than 150 employees from accounting firm Bennett Thrasher volunteered at the park on Oct. 30 and removed invasive plants, installed a planting bed that extends down into the park from the nature trail at Howell Mill, and built four park benches along Peachtree Creek. For information or to make a donation, visit atlmemorialpark.org.

JUST ADD IMAGINATION.

A group of students studying urban design at Georgia Tech are putting finishing touches on a final report for the City of Atlanta about the redevelopment of the Memorial Drive corridor from Downtown to Stone Mountain. Residents and stakeholders got their first look at the bold plans, dubbed Imagine Memorial, at a public information session at the end of October. The plan calls for major street improvements for motorists and pedestrians, transit routes, parks and identifies vacant and abandoned property that could be redeveloped. Atlanta City Councilmember Natalyn Archibong is supporting the effort to finally see the corridor revitalized. The students in professor Mike Dobbins’ class have harnessed the power of social media to continue and update the Imagine Memorial plan since the public meeting, giving residents the opportunity to sound off on Facebook at facebook. com/groups/memorialdrivestudio. The students also created a Flipbook of plans

and renderings you can see at the Facebook page. Like the rest of Fulton and DeKalb counties, some parts of Memorial have faired better than others. In the city, the Capitol Homes slum was bulldozed and replaced with modern, affordable housing. New condos, restaurants and office buildings were constructed, especially along the Grant Park portion of the street at historic Oakland Cemetery. Further east, the Atlanta BeltLine has been acting as a catalyst for regrowth, including tentative plans by Jamestown (the company behind Ponce City Market) to redevelop the old Atlanta Dairies complex into apartments, retail and offices. Developer John Wieland is planning townhomes near the BeltLine, while nonprofit WonderRoot will soon be moving into the old Tech High/Hubert Elementary and bringing classes and support for local artists. A linear park called Capitol Gateway was supposed to stretch up Memorial from historic Oakland City to the Gold Dome, but the plan is on hold, since much of the property is currently operating businesses, including Daddy D’z barbecue.

SUNSHINE ON A RANNEY DAY Making a Difference: Couple gives dream room makeovers to kids with long-term illnesses By Clare S. Richie This holiday season let a little sunshine into your heart. That’s what Holly and Peter Ranney did in 2012 when they co-founded Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD), a nonprofit that creates dream room makeovers in the greater Atlanta area for children with long-term illness and injury. As Holly worked for Rooms to Go Kids in design and product development, she knew she could use her skills and industry connections to reach children in need. Her husband Peter, an accountant by day, grew up learning about construction from his father and developed an aptitude for custom design projects. He agreed to manage the projects and volunteer alongside licensed professionals. “We decided to focus on children with long-term illnesses or injuries because these children face challenges each day and deserve a special place where they can heal, both physically and emotionally,” Holly said. “We try very hard to ease the burden on these children and their families.” SOARD thoughtfully selects each child to serve based on need, location and project size. The child’s wishes and needs drive the design process and then the family lets SOARD takeover until the big reveal. The Brain Tumor Foundation for Children referred Mathew for the first makeover. Since Mathew aspired to join the military, Holly designed his bedroom to look like a bunker. SOARD connected with nearby Robins Air Force Base, which donated military paraphernalia, arranged for Mathew to fly in a small plane, and gave Mathew a full military salute at his reveal. “I cry at every reveal,” Holly said. After weeks working tirelessly nights and weekends (in addition to her day job), these were likely tears of relief, joy, and hope. By the time Holly and Peter embarked on their fourth makeover, they wanted to do more. Gavin battled the

physically and mentally debilitating Mitochondrial disease. By day, he attended numerous therapy sessions. At night, he slept with his parents to keep him safe when his muscles shook with spasms. “After meeting the family, we decided to convert their unfinished basement into a therapy space in addition to redoing Gavin’s and his sister’s bedrooms,” Holly said. “We had $2,000 in our account but decided to go big or go home!” Thanks to the generosity of donors and volunteers, SOARD completed a $40,000 makeover and Gavin could sleep easy in his own custom-made bed in his baseballthemed room. “The makeover for Tripp Halstead was another turning point for us,” Holly reflected. “We connected with people around the world, who were touched by his story and our mission.” Young Tripp suffered multiple skull fractures when a huge tree limb fell on his head as he played outdoors.

After many surgeries, his parents were preparing to bring Tripp home to a ranch-style house they planned to remodel. SOARD stepped in to transform their home into a comfortable, functional and fully-accessible home. “This time we had $5,000 to start with, and completed a $200,000 makeover thanks to the support of businesses, sponsors, donors, and hundreds of volunteers,” Holly shared. More than a million people watched Tripp’s reveal on WSB’s live stream. A $50,000 donation followed from Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies, giving Holly the confidence to leave her corporate job in 2014 and work full-time for SOARD. With her full focus, SOARD doubled its makeovers this year reaching more than two-dozen families since its inception. Countless partners join and stay with SOARD. Rooms to Go has donated furniture since the beginning. Muralists, interior designers, and graphic designers return to share their time and talent.

Competing cityhood initiatives merge to form LaVista Hills The Lakeside and Briarcliff cityhoood initiatives in North DeKalb have fully merged under the new name of LaVista Hills. If created, the city will be the largest in DeKalb County with approximately 72,000 residents. “Cityhood is about giving communities and citizens a choice,” said Mary Kay Woodworth, formerly of Lakeside. “We have spoken at well over a hundred community meetings in the last two years, and we continue to listen and respond to what residents and businesses tell us and to community’s desires. We are thankful to our volunteers and appreciate the continued community support and input shaping the new city’s vision.” “I’m happy to see that Briarcliff and Lakeside could meet the House Governmental Affairs committee imposed deadline and look forward to helping them with their bill when they get to the Senate,” said State Sen. Fran Millar. A three-party agreement with the Tucker 2015 cityhood movement was unsuccessful by the Nov. 15 deadline. “We have made multiple offers to the Tucker cityhood movement and we’re still hopeful we can reach agreement on the boundaries,” said Allen Venet, formerly of the City of Briarcliff Initiative. “After merging the vision of Lakeside and Briarcliff, and presenting neighborhood survey and petition preference input to Tucker, we are disappointed that the groups were unable to reach an agreement by the November 15th deadline.” In the coming weeks the combined group will continue work towards readying LaVista Hills for the 2015 legislative session.

Committee will explore Bellwood Quarry redevelopment The Atlanta City Council has approved the creation of a 16-member advisory committee to make recommendations on the redevelopment of Bellwood Quarry, a site in northwest Atlanta bought by the city in 2006. The site, located between Johnson Road and Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, lies between Bankhead and west Midtown. It will be used as both a park and recreational space and as a raw drinking water storage facility. “The property has enormous potential to be redeveloped in a number of ways consistent with the purposes for which it was purchased,” said Atlanta City Councilmember Michael Julian Bond, the sponsor of the resolution. Plans are to eventually create a 300-plus acre park with a 45-acre lake, which would also serve as a drinking water reservoir. The plan is a portion of the extensive Belt Line project to construct a ring of parks, trails, and transit surrounding the core of Atlanta. The proposed park will be nearly twice the size of Atlanta’s current largest city park, Piedmont Park. “The sooner we get this project underway, the better,” said Bond. “This park will provide city residents and visitors an alternative to Piedmont Park and will serve as a venue for large events. I envision it being a world-class public green space and it will be the largest public park in the southeast.”

The Decatur Police Department has released its first data since it began tracking the demographics of persons stopped by the police on Aug. 1. The first quarterly report shows that the racial make-up of those involved in police-initiated stops mirrors the racial make-up of Decatur, DeKalb County and the City of Atlanta, which shares a border with Decatur. Quarterly reports will be released and posted to decaturpolice.com.“It is still very early, but the police department’s tracking of demographic data of persons stopped by the police, whether on foot, bicycle or in a motor vehicle, seems to be working well,” said Decatur Mayor Jim Baskett. “The City Commission believes this and all the data collected by the Decatur Police Department are key to ensuring our city’s police department remains the responsible team of dedicated professionals that Decatur expects and deserves.” In addition to recording the race of individuals stopped by the police, the Decatur Police Department tracks citizen complaints, use of force by officers and police pursuits of suspects. This week, all Decatur Police officers and the city’s management team completed a diversity program led by trainers from the Anti-Defamation League’s A World of Difference Institute (ADL.org).

Thunder tasted the sweet life at PAWS Atlanta’s summer camp. He was groomed, walked, shampooed, petted, tickled and the kids couldn’t get enough of him. Thunder wants that again: to be special, and wanted. He is an eager, intelligent, affectionate and playful dog. Thunder likes kids and dogs, though he can be a little “chatty” on walks. All he needs is a chance. To adopt Thunder or any of the other available dogs and cats searching for a home, visit pawsatlanta.org or stop by the shelter at 5287 Covington Highway in Decatur.

Atlanta Police Chief George Turner was recently elected as one of the Eastern Region Representatives of the Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA). Turner’s two year term, which begins in January, will see hime work alongside Chief Jane Castor from Tampa, as they co-serve as Eastern Region Representatives. The Atlanta Police Department’s Mounted Patrol Unit have graduated Officer Vrndavana Holden and Officer Christopher Pellegrino after 12 weeks of rigorous training, which took place at the APD Mounted Patrol Barn in Grant Park. The officers learned the basic fundamentals of horsemanship, how to care for the horses and barn facilities, as well as understanding and working with the temperament of the horses. They have also learned to navigate all types of terrains and environments throughout the city.

Pet Briefs David York has opened the sixth Barking Hound Village (barkinghoundvillage.com) location in Inman Park at 745 Edgewood Ave. featuring grooming and daycare. Future plans include a boarding facility. Along with grooming services, the location also offers specialty dog foods, treats and toys for every canine on your holiday gift list. The seventh annual Reindog Parade will be held on Dec. 6 – the only day of the year that four-legged pals are allowed to set paw in the Atlanta Botanical Garden. During the event, which begins at 11 a.m., pups clad in their finest holiday attire will parade across a stage before a panel of judges to compete for prizes – or just to show off for fun. Categories include Best Puppy, Best Adult, Best Botanical, Best Dog-Owner Dress-alike, Best Dog Pack, and ultimately, Best in Show. Emceeing the competition will be Atlanta resident Victoria Stilwell, host of the Animal Planet cable TV show “It’s Me or the Dog,” and Atlanta TV and radio personality Holly Firfer. A Doggie Expo will offer canine-related products, services and information, warm refreshments will be available under the Pup Tent, and participants may have photos of their dogs made with botanical Saint Nick. Pre-registration is encouraged by Dec. 2. The cost, in addition to regular Garden admission, is $15 per dog, or $18 at the door (maximum two dogs per owner).

This Month in History

Ann Taylor Boutwell Dec 1. 1977: Dr. Alonzo Crim, Atlanta’s first African American superintendent of schools, informed the Atlanta Public School Board that Georgia Tech had made a firm offer to purchase the O’Keefe Middle School. It was located at the corner of 6th Street and Techwood Drive. The original building, built as a junior high school, opened in October 1923. It sold at the end of 1977-78 school session, and Georgia Tech incorporated it as part of the college campus where it remains today. Dec. 4, 1912: After a month’s delay, Dan Carey, Atlanta’s general manager of parks, received authorization for the $350 he requested to relocate the Erskine Memorial Fountain. A few days later, as Carey promised, it was placed in Grant Park, where it remains today. Honoring her late father, Mrs. Ruby Erskine Ward of New York commissioned New York sculptor John Massey Rhind to design the piece as a gift to Atlanta. It was originally located in Hardy Ivy Park at the junction of of Peachtree, Baker, and West Peachtree. Dec. 9, 1971: The Cyclorama of the Battle of Atlanta was listed on National Register of Historic Places. The giant painting is currently located in Grant Park, but will move in 2017 to the Atlanta History Center campus in Buckhead.

Dec. 14, 1988: Mayor Andrew Young received a telegram from Paris, France. It read: Very deeply hope that the report is not true regarding your having granted permission to destroy the structure in which Margaret Mitchell wrote the great American classic Gone With the Wind. It would be a great credit to your administration if you were to assure the preservation of this landmark, which means so much to millions of people all over the world. The telegram was signed by Olivia de Havilland, who played Melanie in the film. The Margaret Mitchell House & Museum still stands today at the corner of 10th and Crescent in Midtown. Dec. 15, 1939: Gone With the Wind had its world premiere at the Loew’s Grand Theatre in Downtown Atlanta.

My C aching Debut Coaching youth sports is a little like joining the conga line at a wedding. You’re pretty sure it’s something you don’t want to be a part of, but if you go to enough weddings, you will eventually be dragged in. We signed Elliott up for the City of Decatur 6-7 year old fall soccer league, and Jaume, the dad of Elliott’s buddy, Albert, said he’d coach if I did it with him. Hailing from Barcelona and a lifelong player, Jaume’s familiarity with the game extends beyond mine (which essentially boils down to having watched some of the World Cup) so I deferred to his expertise. At the first practice Jaume laid out cones for a footwork drill while I pleaded with the children to stop tackling each other. The exercise was to be done without any ball so, as the dutiful assistant, I collected the balls and was subsequently attacked like the only house on the block with any Halloween candy. Okay then, no more drills without a ball! There was a lot of giggling and an extraordinary amount of instances where a child attempted to kick the ball but instead stepped on top of it and wiped out, which incited more giggling and tackling. We lost our first two games to the tune of about 10-0 but our third game was magical. We were trailing 4-1 at halftime and, until that point, we had stressed the importance of knowing one’s position. The kids listened a little too well. What I observed, because I am a coaching genius, was that the other team had five kids around the ball at all times and we had two at best. Positions were scrapped and the Falcons attacked the ball en masse up and down the field. We stormed back to take the game 5-4 and celebrated wildly while soccer purists everywhere cringed. We went on to win a second game and battled another good team to a tie so we like to count that as a win, too. It was such a great group of kids and the parents A t l a n t a I N t o w n P a p e r. c o m

were the perfect combo of laid back and encouraging. Everyone improved and had oodles of fun. In one of the last games, Elliott took a corner kick and passed it to Oliver. Oliver deftly controlled it and passed it back to a charging Elliott who bent the ball into the far corner of the goal. It was beautiful and just enough to sucker me into volunteering to coach basketball as well. A week later I’m sitting in a conference room at the Decatur Recreation Center with 20 or so other coaches and we’re conducting a sophisticated draft to create teams for the 7-8 year old basketball league. It’s a little tense. Imagine a fantasy football draft with your buddies minus the smack talk and the beer and computer generated minutiae to guide you. The guy next to me, who I learn has coached in the league for a decade, ranked all 150 of the players in order of ability. I scan my own notes from the skills assessment the week before and find some razor sharp insights like “nice kid,” “great smile” and “coachable,” but the soccer season taught me that this is all that matters. That being said, everyone wants to be competitive right? I was proud to hear that one coach gave Elliott very high marks at the assessment, but quickly muffled that pride to sandbag my own kid’s abilities. I needed the league administrator to slot him in as a fourth round pick instead of first or second. The kid has a sweet shot, but he’s one of the smaller kids on the board so I don’t feel terrible. Plus it freed me up to spend my first pick on an 8-year-old girl named Lily who was listed at 65 inches tall! It might have been a typo, but I just couldn’t risk it.

Toco Hills’ Nearly New Shop offers bargains, great location By Martha Nodar Enjoying a prime location as a new tenant in the Toco Hills Shopping Center, the Nearly New Shop – an upscale thrift store owned and operated by the Junior League of Atlanta – is a hit among bargain shoppers in the area. “We thought that Toco Hills with its vibes and energy would make a great central location for everyone,” said Ursula Reynolds, the league’s current vice president of marketing. “This is a very stable area with long-time residents of different ages.” Reynolds said all the proceeds from the shop benefit the league, whose mission is to train its members to serve in the community with sensitivity.

The store is located in Toco Hills.

Special

Atlanta natives and local residents mother and daughter Donna and Leslie Mitchell are bargain shoppers and frequent customers of the shopping center. “We came to this store as soon as the sign was up,” Donna Mitchell said. “We shop here to support the league’s mission. This is an upscale thrift store with a great location. It has ample parking, good selection, nice clothes, and name brands.” League member Vanessa Cheatham of Buckhead said the store has received “fantastic donations” from her fellow members. “Our merchandise includes designers such as Lily Palmer and Michael Kors,” she said. Donations are also accepted from the general public. Marilyn Benjamin, the store manager, said the shop is maintained by the league’s volunteer members. Although she has noticed repeat customers since the store opened, she said she has also seen many people who are now just learning about the shop’s location. That was the case with Cheryl Myers of Duluth who learned about the store by word-of-mouth, through a coworker. She decided to check it out and brought along her sister. “Today is my first time in this shop,”

Myers said. “This is a great location in a thriving area.” Cheryl Griffin, a Druid Hills resident and repeat customer agreed with Myers. “The first time I visited this shop I bought a dress for $10 and received multiple compliments,” Griffin said. “I just had to come back.” This new kid on the block has clothing for the entire family, shoes, jewelry, books, furniture, artwork, toys and more at affordable prices. Some bargains include a black leather/patent Kate Spade bag for $15

and women’s slacks for less than $12 all in excellent condition. Shoppers can expect to find a 50 percent off sale of everything in the store in December and around every major holiday the rest of the time, Benjamin said. Featuring a neighborly ambiance (check out the comfy couch at the entrance) and open every day, this shop offers an option to crowded malls and Internet surfing.

By Annie Kinnett Nichols One of my favorite Intown haunts is Paris on Ponce and Pop Marché, which is just steps from the Eastside Trail. You know the place: there’s a big Eiffel Tower with King Kong holding Fay Wray at the top. PoP will mark its 20th anniversary in 2015, and it’s built a reputation for offering an eclectic range of antiques and oddities. If you’re looking for a unique holiday gift, there are more than 30 unique boutiques located inside PoP. I also love Le Moulin Rouge, the rentable nightclub space where I’ve witnessed weddings and a performance by King Sized, and the annual Bastille Day party. It’s like walking onto an ever-changing movie set when you step through the door. And, yes, they do rent props to moviemakers. PoP’s Holiday Extravaganza is coming the weekend before Christmas, Dec. 20-21, featuring free libations, an aerialist, burlesque girls and more. Partners Skip Englebrecht and Nicolette Valdespino have made PoP a true destination, and a place I like

to take my friends when they come to visit. With a mix of galleries and vendors it’s a neat place to hang out for a couple of hours. One of my favorite vendors is Absinthe, which specializes in the oddball and quirky including an entire moose. Relics has typewriters, Hollywood lights, an antique bingo roller and neon signs. Altar-ed features vintage wedding pieces. There’s a guy who specializes in World War II items, while one of my favorite antique dealers, Claudia Thompson, former owner of Providence in Morningside, continues to find amazing collections and unusual individual pieces. I thought Kong and Fay were looking a little chilly so I knitted scarves for both of them and Skip kindly put them up to keep them warm this winter. Paris on Ponce & Pop Marché is located at 716 Ponce de Leon Place in Virginia-Highland. For more, visit parisonponce.com.

* Reserve a new home at Park Springs before Dec. 31, 2014 and up to $7500 of your moving costs will be reimbursed. Offer valid on independent living residences only. Restrictions apply.

CHaRM will offer educational

30 December 2014 | INtown

opportunities to community organizations about the importance of proper disposal/recycling of hard to recycle materials. Schools will also be targeted to explain the impact that these items may have on the environment if not properly handled. Councilmember Carla Smith, who jointly sponsored legislation with Councilmember Alex Wan, said “I have been a long time champion for the proper disposal of hard to recycle materials in District 1 and Atlanta. I am happy to partner with Live Thrive on this project. Live Thrive has worked with us for years during my annual Electronic Recycling events. I know that this partnership will do well for Atlanta residents.”

The CHaRM facility is expected to be operational in January and will a “Bring One for the Chipper” Christmas tree recycling event on Jan. 3. Residents

can also bring cardboard boxes, styrofoam and used electronics. For more about CHaRM visit livethrive.org/charm.

Community leaders and city officials break ground on the new recycling facility.

The park was closed before the Olympics as a security measure because of its proximity to the water treatment facility, but was never reopened. In addition to providing locals and visitors more outdoor space to enjoy in the rapidly growing Westside neighborhood, this effort encompasses a variety of other improvement projects. The plan includes initiatives to renovate the nearly centuryold Waterworks facility as well as implement a system to increase the city’s water supply to ensure quality drinking water for years to come. With this new system, water will be pumped from the Chattahoochee River to the new connection at the Bellwood Quarry, with an extension through the Waterworks property, increasing the city’s water supply from the current seven-day reserve to more than 30 days.

706-455-9968 Enjoy retirement by living your way at Saint Anne’s Terrace in the heart of Buckhead! “I’ve been involved with the community since 1960 and I was on the very first board here at Saint Anne’s Terrace. It’s a beautiful part of town and the best part about living here is the wonderful family atmosphere in which everyone gets along.”

Cheryl D’Amato of Midtown unveils her passion for painting outdoors by bringing her interpretation of a blue bird to the 10th annual Plein Air Exhibit at the Buckhead Library.” The exhibit, which consists of 70 pieces by D’Amato and fellow members of the Buckhead-based Atlanta Artists Center (AAC) and its subgroup, the plein air painting group, takes wing Dec. 2 through Jan. 12. Rooted in a French expression, plein air means in the open air. A piece is considered plein air when most of it is drawn or painted outdoors. Frequently found painting in her condominium’s balcony near Piedmont Park, D’Amato said that plein air painting suits her personality because of the sense of freedom associated with painting outside. “To paint plein-air is to free the soul in a beautiful location,” she said. That is exactly what happened when D’Amato painted the “Bird Feeder” at an Atlanta garden during a garden

tour sponsored by the High Museum for different groups of artists including plein air artists. The piece depicts a blue bird poking through the opening of a wooden bird feeder. “I was attracted to the simplicity of the scene,” she said. “I wanted to show the brushstrokes and multiple colors as a way to define the shadows.” A sense of playfulness comes across in D’Amato’s piece through her “use of whimsical colors and active brushstrokes,” said fellow AAC member Jane Springfield, who is also participating in the exhibit. “The painting reflects the lighthearted experience Cheryl must have had in the garden that afternoon,” she said. “Vines and flowers curl around the feeder and lead the viewer’s eyes around the painting in much the same way the bird might have circled it earlier.” Expressing her own experience, Springfield said that when painting outside the senses become more akin. “I become aware of the sound, the smell, the mood,” she said. “It is as though I am recording a place-in-time.” Springfield said a lot of planning is involved in plein air painting, such as knowing what to take to the scene, and choosing the time of day as the sun moves quickly. “We anticipate the direction of the sun,” she said. “It’s almost a science.” Mikki Dillon, Clyde Draughon, Erin Durham, Lee Jordan, Lorraine Kimsey, Tuyet McDonald, Kay Summers, and Ujjagar Singh Wassan are among AAC members and plein air artists also partaking in the show. A reception is open to the public on Dec. 6, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Located at 269 Buckhead Ave., the Buckhead Library is now open every day Monday through Saturday but at different times depending on the day.

NEW EATS & TREATS

A roundup of recently-opened restaurants around Intown By Collin Kelley INtown Editor The holiday season is in full swing, which means hectic shopping sprees and guests from out of town. It’s the perfect time to eat out, and there are a number of newly-opened restaurants worth check out around Intown.

The Café at Linton’s

While you’re visiting the Atlanta Botanical Garden to see the gorgeous holiday lights, be sure to stop Chef Linton Hopkins’ placeholder while the new full-service Linton’s in the Garden is under construction (expected to open in late 2015). The café offers a menu based on natural meats and fresh, local produce, including fruits, vegetables and herbs grown at the Garden. For more information, visit atlantabontanicalgarden.org.

Celebrity chef Marvin Woods brings his “coastal soul” cuisine to this new spot in Downtown’s Luckie Marietta District at 250 Park Ave. Woods has developed a signature style that blends ingredients and techniques of South America, the Caribbean, the Low Country and Southern United States and Africa. For more information, visit asanteatl.com.

Illegal Foods Here’s something to watch out for in January: the second out post of awardwinning Condesa Coffee 145 Auburn Ave. in the Atlanta Daily World Building. Condesa, which offers fair trade coffee and cocktails, was named one of the 10 Best Coffee Shops in the country by The Daily Meal. Find out more about the opening at condesacoffee.com.

Local restaurants serving up Christmas Day dinner Back in the day, the only restaurant open on Christmas Day was the Waffle House (and it still is if you prefer your holiday meal scattered, smothered and covered), but Intown restaurants also know that many people would rather enjoy more time with friends and family and less time in the kitchen. Here are a few suggestions for your Christmas Day meal. Find more at OpenTable. com. Reservations are recommended.

I’m intrigued by restaurant names and what they say about a restaurant. Some are self-explanatory like The Atlanta Fish Market or Fox Brother’s Bar-B-Q. Some are iconic like Bone’s or Bacchanalia. Some allude to history or literature like Ink and Elm and King + Duke. Some are just whimsical like Sun In My Belly. Located in a former hardware store in Kirkwood, Sun In My Belly is a neighborhood café that serves brunch, lunch and dinner. If you don’t live in the area it’s a little hard to find the first time as there’s minimal signage and, in typical Atlanta neighborhood fashion, there’s minimal parking. There’s a patio for those warm weather Sunday brunches and just inside the door there’s a pastry/ coffee counter if you just happen to want a quick bite. As is this the case with many old buildings that are converted into restaurants, the seating is that European banquet style with rows of tables only separated by the slimmest of margins that turn everyone into involuntary eavesdroppers. The piercing “High C” screams of a nearby baby further reaffirm that this isn’t necessarily your date night destination. The menu is extensive. From soups to salads, to “Lite Bites” to “Big Bites,” to even a Kid’s menu in the evening, chances are there’s something for everyone. There’s a 4-course “Supper Club” menu that’s available from Thursday through Sunday for $35. There’s a decent wine selection and they offer craft beers as well. As an appetizer, we tried the fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese. The unripe tomatoes were lightly battered and fried to an al dente doneness with just the

Two Outstanding New Intown Listings from PalmerHouse!

Ray Schoenbaum, original owner of Rio Bravo and founder of Ray’s Restaurants, has announced he will open a Ray’s Rio Bravo (raysriobravo.com) in Sandy Springs in the former Peter Chang’s space by Cinco de Mayo 2015. Schoenbaum made the decision to open the restaurant after high demand from customers requesting the return of the restaurant’s iconic dishes.

Meals On Wheels Atlanta and the Peachtree Road Farmers Market at The Cathedral of St. Philip in Buckhead have partnered to bring locally grown vegetables to its clients. Meals On Wheels Atlanta purchases – at a discounted rate – vegetables left at the end of the Saturday market and delivers them to senior citizens. The farmers market is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon through Dec. 13. For more information, visit peachtreeroadfarmersmarket.com. Fox Brothers Restaurant Group closed Big Tex Decatur last month to focus on expansion of Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, which was recently named the official barbecue of the Atlanta Falcons. The barbecue joint is currently building a new catering/ commissary facility on Ottley Drive. “The new commissary will really be a game changer for us and help meet the needs of our restaurant in Candler Park and future Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q restaurants,” said Jonathan Fox, Partner and Pitmaster of Fox Bros Bar-B-Q. Esquire has named Gunshow (gunshowatl.com) in Glenwood Park as one of the country’s best new restaurants in its first annual American Food and Drink Awards. Here’s what the magazine had to say: “Gunshow may just be the manliest restaurant in America. If not for the giant painting of a boar that serves as the place’s only decoration, it would look like an abandoned factory. You don’t know what to expect, other than a kitchen so ballsy and hypercreative – pork-skin risotto, foie gras with figs and Coca-Cola reduction – that you can’t figure on ever getting the same thing twice.” Meals On Wheels Atlanta and the Peachtree Road Farmers Market at The Cathedral of St. Philip in Buckhead have partnered to bring locally grown vegetables to its clients.

You don’t have to drive to Decatur anymore for chicken schnitzel now that Seven Hens (7hens.com) has opened a second location at Abernathy Square Shopping Center, 6615 Roswell Road, in Sandy Springs. “The fact that schnitzel is hugely popular in Europe and around the world but not so much in the United States is mind-boggling to me… Because it’s so good!

Real Estate Briefs Realtor Sandy Epstein with Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta was named Salesperson of the Year during the 34th annual event hosted by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council and the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association that recognizes excellence in sales and marketing in the greater Atlanta housing industry. Epstein was honored with a Gold OBIE for her success on Jim Chapman Fine Homes’ 55+ community, Brookhaven at Johns Creek. Curbed Atlanta is reporting that Old Fourth Ward music and concert venue The Masquerade might be transformed as part of a mixed-use development along the Eastside Trail and Historic Fourth Ward Park. The property fronts North Avenue and is just across the street from Ponce City Market. According to the report, the Atlanta Beltline is working with Southeast Capital Companies, which wants to create a five-story, multifamily building with 238 units and 6,148-square-feet of commercial space. The historic mill, which dates back to the 1890s, would not be demolished but would be incorporated into the project in some unidentified way.The mill made excelsior – wood shavings used as packing material – into the 1960s. Afterwards, the site became a pizzeria and a blues hall before becoming The Masquerade in 1989. With its three level entertainment space – Heaven, Purgatory and Hell – The Masquerade still packs in audiences for shows by up-and-coming alternative bands. The Masquerade’s future has been in question since 2004, when the former owner announced he was going to sell the site to a developer for a mixed-use project featuring restaurants and condos. Construction has begun on a new 20-story apartment tower at the 12th & Midtown development. Located at 60 11th St., the building is expected to be completed sometime in 2016. Harry Norman, REALTORS won a prestigious real estate award at the 19th Annual Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate’s Fall Conference recently held in Boston. The conference is one of the largest luxury specific real estate conferences in the world. Harry Norman was honored with the Best Mobile App award, which is given to the Luxury Real Estate member creating the most cutting-edge technology to help market their company. The Residences at W Atlanta in Downtown are offering a sky-high incentive to buyers interested in the four remaining penthouse suites – free helicopter service to Hartsfield-Jackson or DeKalb Peachtree airports for a year. The building has its own helipad. Ranging from 3,289 to 4,154 square-feet, the homes start at $1.5 million. December 2014 | INtown 45


Perspectives in Architecture Melody L. Harclerode

Assisting a New Generation By Melody Harclerode The acronym can mystify a person with its odd spelling, but its meaning can bring a smile. SORTAA stands for the Slate of Ready To Assist Architects. This committee with the Atlanta Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Atlanta) was started in 1989 by architects Rocky Rothschild and Cecil Alexander, along with Sally Price. Rothschild and Alexander led the firm called FABRAP, which designed the iconic AT&T Headquarters in

Stanley Daniels, left, and John Busby.

Special

Midtown, the demolished Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, and the Coca-Cola Headquarters off North Avenue. Price served as the Executive Director of AIA Atlanta. These professionals could have spent their retirement time solely focusing on traveling and relaxing after their years of hard work, but they were drawn to another endeavor. The trio organized SORTAA to create fellowship and networking opportunities for elder architects. Although Rothschild, Alexander and Price died years ago, SORTAA moves forward with current leaders such as John Busby and Stanley Daniels. Busby, Daniels and the late Henri Jova founded the Atlanta-based architectural firm Jova Daniels Busby in 1966. Their firm designed such landmarks as Colony Square and the round, futuristic bank building on Monroe Drive at Piedmont Road (it’s since been a number of restaurants). The founders of the firm personified leadership with their design accomplishments and positions as Past AIA Atlanta Presidents. Busby even served as AIA National President in 1986. Established in 1857, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) faces a wonderful opportunity as it seeks

to broaden its appeal to younger members. With the average age of an AIA member at age 52 in 2012, the national organization thirst for more young people to join its membership and become more involved in committees. Young professional members can provide new ideas and creativity to energize an organization. They also give the organization more assurance of its long-term stability. However, retired professionals like the ones in SORTAA can also help the professional associations through their expertise and experience. Knowing the tendency of people to segregate by age, professional organizations around the country should work to bring together its young and elder members for more initiatives that benefit both groups. Through initiatives such as panel discussions, mentoring programs and scholarships to foster collaboration between different age groups, the slate
