Revolution 11 is so much more than a place to buy vintage. Revolution 11 Vintage Market & Studio is a clutch for your style and a playground for your spirit. Nothing is off limits, including private parties, trunk shows, staging and costuming.

Street Food Man about town George Krauth dishes on the fashions, flavors, designs and décor he discovers as he travels the globe tracking trends in his capacity as Creative Manager for Jamestown Properties. This quarter, George explores Street Food.


Jamestown Properties is investing in street food related events in places like Mixson in Charleston, SC (mixson. com) and Warehouse Row in Chattanooga, TN (warehouserow. net). In fact, our friends at Midtown Alliance are going strong with a highly successful "Street Food Thursdays" event in Midtown Atlanta.

hy is it that when Americans think of street food, we picture corndogs and funnel cakes? Street food, especially as it’s being done today, is nothing like those stomachaches-on-a-stick found at carnivals of yesteryear. From farm-to-truck fare from Grace’s Goodness in Georgia to sizzling Mama’s Empanadas in San Francisco, today’s street food is all about the freshest locally sourced ingredients cooked right in front of you.

Look for food trucks and pop-up chef events at future Jamestown developments like Atlanta's up-and-coming Ponce City Market. (poncecitymarket. com)

A: 1. Picasso to Warhol at the High -- it's going to knock your artsy socks off. 2. Wogging (my term for half-walk, half-jog) in Piedmont Park. Enter the park at Charles Allen drive right after sunrise, walk across the lawn to the pond and you'll be treated to the most spectacular views of the park and the skyline.
