It’s no wonder I loved working on this issue, traveling to Telluride to push myself and breathe in the landscape and reflect on my blessings. We’re thrilled to introduce five men who live or work in our community and are making an important contribution through their work in and out of the office. Say hello when you see them and let us know if there are men in your world who are making a difference. Chime in on our Facebook page or drop me a line so we can continue to tell stories about the engaging people who live right here. Happy Father’s Day, Spud!

ARTICLE CORINNE CUMMINGS TOO MANY DATE NIGHT OPTIONS IN AND AROUND ATLANTA MIGHT BE THE REASON YOUR COUPLES’ NIGHT OUT IS FEELING STALE. With too many options, some guys wind up trying to split the difference and end up at the same old bar or restaurant. For guys looking to up their date night cred, Chukkar Farm provides ambiance, music, and originality nearly every weekend from May through October. James Casto, drummer and host of Home By Dark since starting the event at Scottdale Farms in Milton 12 years ago, says the combination of the farm-setting and format—Nashville “in the round” where the singers and musicians interact with each other and the audience— lends itself to a perfect date night option in Alpharetta.

01. Tables of two and four are most common, but Home By Dark can accommodate groups of up to 10 people. Though food is not available for purchase, think of it more like a tailgate. Gates open at 6:30 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m., and tables are on the outskirts of the polo field. Casto says the set-ups vary from buckets of chicken to tablecloths and fine china, but that the social aspect and spirit of bringing friends makes for an exciting night.

02. Casto and his band stick to the “in the round” format popularized in Nashville, and as a former touring performer regularly enlists friends and acquaintances from all over the country to come and perform original music. The songs and format are meant to connect the artist and audience and Casto says, “It’s a unique show with romantic elements and unique setting.” You never know who might stop by: Performers like Christopher Cross and Patty Loveless have shown up in the past.

Alpharetta Lifestyle | June 2018


HOW HARD COULD IT BE? I was joining Telluride Outside for a scenic snowmobile ride along groomed trails between the Wilson and Dolores mountain ranges to historic Dunton Hot Springs for a soak in ancient waters followed by a gourmet lunch. Well, two hours driving the snow machine, the roar of the engine masking my heavy breathing, left me exhilarated and exhausted. By the time we pulled into the remote Dunton Hot Springs property, an abandoned mining town turned Relais & Chateaux destination, my heart was pounding under the billowy snowsuit. I traded it for a giant fluffy robe and stomped through the snow to “the source,” the hottest of the three hot springs open for day visitors and overnight guests. I climbed gingerly down the slippery 4-foot wood ladder into the subterraneous tub of water naturally heated to 112 degrees by tectonic forces associated with the Triassic Dolores Formation.

PARTING THOUGHTS

genesis brings you home ARTICLE DENNIS MALCOLM BYRON | PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED

IN 2018, THERE HAVE BEEN SOME MIND-BLOWING IMPRESSIONS IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY ESPECIALLY REGARDING THE SECTORS OF POWER AND ELEGANCE. Here is our pick for dad that is sure to make Father’s Day unforgettable! THE GENESIS 2018 G90 RWD 5.0 ULTIMATE While Hyundai is behind the conception of this automobile, they strategically gave the Genesis its own lane in terms of branding identity because of its competing in the luxury market and plethora of amenities. The 5.0L V8 GDI Engine packs a punch at 420 horsepower to blaze through the streets while still pampering passengers. Leather and genuine wood trims; multi-powered seats in the front and back; a 17-speaker Lexicon sound system; and rear seat entertainment systems complete with dual 10.3-inch HD monitors only begin the lengthy list of amenities. Its stress-relieving new vehicle warranty spans for half a decade, and the three-year Genesis Experience including service valet, complimentary maintenance, enhanced roadside assistance and other perks makes this automobile that much sexier. The Casablanca White is highly suggested.
