COFFEE ON THE GO: SCOOTERS#LOCAL ROSWELL OWNERS!!
BY LISA LOSSIE
LOOKING FOR DELICIOUS COFFEE on the run? Try scooting in and scooting out of Scooter’s Coffee in Roswell. The Roswell location on Crossville Road is the latest addition to a chain of drive thru coffee houses that started in Bellevue, Nebraska in 1998. Founders Don and Linda Eckles named the coffee chain after their daughter’s nickname, Scooter, and thought it fit their slogan well, “Amazing People, Serving Amazing Drinks, Amazingly Fast.” In 2001 they started franchising their stores and have now expanded into 15 states with nearly 135 stores including Roswell. Jon Erwin and his wife Deanna own the Roswell location that opened in November of 2015. It’s the very first Scooter’s east of the Mississippi. “When people talk about Atlanta, traffic is always in the conversation, so we wanted to be around a lot of traffic. We focus on speed, you don’t want to sit and wait. We are gonna be fast and our products are great,” says Erwin who relocated from Omaha a year ago. Scooter’s keys to success? Find a great location and stay committed to high quality drinks, fast service, a clean store a big smile! “A lot of people call us their coffee shop, locals have supported us tremendously,” says Erwin. The drive thru coffee house is committed to quality and only roasts
from the top 10% of speciality coffee beans in the world. On each drink sold, customers get happy face sticker, Scooter’s way of saying “Have an amazing day!” Partnered with The Arbor Day Foundation, Scooters uses mostly shade grown coffee plants. These beans grow under the canopy of the rainforest and trees are not destroyed. On the menu, customers can find dozens of drinks to choose from including a Candy Bar Latte, an Iced Carmelicious, or a Turtle blender. There are also ten kinds of smoothies on the menu ranging from a Strawberry Smoothie to a PB Power Smoothie and even a Green Tea Smoothie. If you’re looking for something on the healthier side, try a Skinny Sugar-Free Turtle Latte or a Skinny Green Tea Latte. Scooters also serves up an assortment of breakfast items to go with your favorite coffee drink. There are four kinds of breakfast burritos to choose from including a southwest burrito. If you have a sweet tooth, Scooters serves cinnamon rolls, muffins, breakfast breads and the hard to resist, Scooter Doodle Cookie. You can even scoot home with a bit of Scooter’s. The coffee house sells coffee you can brew at home, whole bean or pods that fit in a Keurig. And what does the owner recommend? “I’m pretty simple, I like brewed coffee with a shot of espresso.”

City Green ONE ROSWELL:
BY TAI ANDERSON
perspective: the city green can unify our city
IN THE JANUARY ISSUE, Roswell Magazine
featured my open letter to my Roswell Football Family following the incredible excitement of the 2015 football seasons for both Roswell High School and Blessed Trinity. Seeing both our teams in green represent our city in the state championship games is a memory that this city will always cherish. Despite the unfortunate outcomes of both games, you can only call the seasons “wins” for our great community. For the week leading up to the Georgia Dome appearances, we were truly “One Roswell.” At the end of the piece, I asked a heartfelt question, “How can we keep that spirit of unity alive in our city?” The answer might be as obvious as the green jerseys on our children’s backs.
spirit of unity I feel on a Friday night at Ray Manus stadium just doesn’t seem to be there in our government chambers. I hear talk of an east/west divide, two Roswells, and heartfelt differences in perspective. It has me missing Roswell Hornet football in a big way! Granted, the council’s job is hard. Its members are trying to make difficult, complicated decisions where there are valid arguments on either side of any singular issue. I will always give credit to anyone willing to step forward and serve in this really challenging capacity. It’s a pretty thankless job. However, our council just can’t seem to reach the kind of unity needed to really spark progress for our city. When I share this observation with my friends in the community, they are shocked to learn that the “One Roswell” spirit doesn’t extend to City Hall.
Over the last few months, I’ve heard some amazing ideas. My friends and neighbors have shared their suggestions for watertower art projects, park renovations, connected bicycle trails, a tailgate before every Roswell home football game, and the possibilities of what an expanded MARTA train line to Roswell might afford. Every idea has its inherent complexities. However, as I’ve interacted with my neighbors and friends at parks, church services, restaurants, coffee shops, sporting events and civic functions, I’ve truly felt that unified spirit of a community that has a lot of pride and optimism for the future. Unfortunately, one place I haven’t felt that unity is at our bi-weekly city council meetings.
Having been involved in the creative process of group songwriting for over 20 years, I would like to present an idea to help bring unity to our city government. When my band would get stuck on the detailed nuances of a new song, I found it to be helpful to just take a break from the tedium and “jam” on a song we already knew. When we captured the unity that came when we are all in sync, we would return to the song creation process with renewed vigor. It always propelled my band forward to progress and results with renewed alignment.
I’ve attended every meeting of the calendar year, and I’ve had my utopian bubble burst a little bit for our great town. You see, the
I have an idea for our city council and city as a whole. An amazing project already exists; the City Green project. It’s been years in development, but it’s a ready to go “shovel ready” project, and
Here is your friend, your neighbor, your bank. 770.576.4471 | bankofnorthgeorgia.com Banking products are provided by Synovus Bank, Member FDIC. Divisions of Synovus Bank operate under multiple trade names across the Southeast. it is beautiful. When you look around at Woodstock, Alpharetta, and Sandy Springs, it’s readily apparent how strategic downtown development can revitalize a city. The City Green project would do just that in the best way possible. It would bring a beautiful park to connect our downtown shops and restaurants to much-needed parking. It would extend the vibrancy and charm of Canton St. to the surrounding area. Additionally, it could become a showcase for the veterans’ memorial that is otherwise unseen and hidden in the woods. Did you even know we have one? I didn’t! It’s time to have a visible memorial that honors Roswell’s own that have given their life in support of our nation. In short, the City Green would become the defined city center Roswell currently lacks. We have the money for it. It will be a net-gainer financially, and it will help make Roswell’s downtown the envy of every other city in the Southeast. Roswell, let’s jam on that! The City Green is a project that has something for everyone, and it should be a slam dunk. Everyone I share the City Green vision with is excited not only about enjoying the park itself, but the bridge it would be to intelligently expand our downtown district as it increases access and much needed parking. It’s time to capitalize on the “One Roswell” idea before division and stagnation becomes the new norm. The City Green project can bring us all together just like our boys in Green did this last December.

Historic Roswell Business Association
BRINGING POSITIVE CHANGES TO OUR COMMUNITY
LOCAL INFLUENCERS AND
businesses combine their efforts to support the revitalization of Roswell’s Historic District The Historic Roswell Business Association (HRBA) is an organization dedicated to revitalizing the longstanding contributions of the now dissolved Historic Roswell Merchant’s Association. The members of the newly developed organization plan to enable the businesses of Roswell’s Historic District to work together in a spirit of collaboration with Roswell’s government and non-government agencies to promote the growth, development, and economic prosperity of the downtown Roswell community. The Historic Roswell Business Association will work together to uphold its mission statement of “promoting the goals of the Historic District’s business owners to the city of Roswell, North Fulton County, and our customers present and future.” The HRBA represents the Historic District by overseeing five separate geographic “zones,” each with an elected representative to the Executive Council. Canton Street will be managed by Ann Marie Giglio of Core Matters, Webb Street by Shannon Schneider of Synergy Fine Art, Oak Street by Donna McDonald of MUSE
& Co. Fine Art, Roswell Square by Kelley Davis of Harry Norman Realtors, and The River by Alissa Reynolds of RAW Juice Boutique. The group’s membership elected Ryan Pernice, owner of Table & Main and Osteria Mattone, as the HRBA’s first Executive Director. “Roswell already has a vibrant community of businesses here in the Historic District. Our hope is that the HRBA adds an element of cohesive teamwork so that our businesses act as partners, all pulling in the same direction, for the betterment of Roswell’s development,” says Pernice. “We will continually ask ourselves how we can work together to make downtown Roswell more exciting for more people. That’s our chief concern.” One of the first tasks for the HRBA will be to develop a unified website that promotes the Historic District, highlights parking options for visitors, and addresses needed infrastructural items like beautification projects and way-finding. In the coming months, the members will be working hard to structure a lasting organization that will bring real positive change to the community of Roswell. Further inquiries regarding the HRBA can be sent to Ryan Pernice at: firstname.lastname@example.org

FOR YOUR HEALTH
BONE BROTH BUZZ
BY SHANNON GOWLAND Roswell Food Therapy Chef / Herbalist
SO WHATâ€™S ALL THE HYPE ABOUT bone broth if it has been around for over 10,000 years? Recently, bone broth has been the buzz for optimum gut health and a restorative or tonic for whole body health. Bone broth should not be confused with stock. Bone broth is boiled at least 20 hours or more and bones should crumble when cooled, this is the key to mineral extraction. Making the decision to include bone broth as a staple in your diet or committing to a gut restore diet can be a time consuming process and difficult to find quality bones. Bones should be from livestock raised by these standards: organic, pastured, grass fed / grass finished. Chicken Broth: The parts used is the back, necks, and feet. The feet are a great source of gelatin and a great choice for overall health, cellular repair, and collagen production. Beef Broth: Marrow bones are used and ideal for blood building & building iron. The key to a good Marrow bone broth is that the marrow is consumed. The marrow is a fatty substance in the cavities of bones. This is where blood cells are produced. Once the bone broth is complete use tongs or wait till broth is cooled and make sure all marrow is removed from bones and in the broth. The marrow and broth can then be pureed to emulsify. Of course, you can always consume the marrow straight as a treat with some Himalayan sea salt. Pork Broth: Part used is the back bone. The small amount of meat on the back bone can be removed and used in a breakfast dish or casserole. The back bones is supportive of the central nervous system and my favorite!
Fish Bone Broth: Use whole fish bones, or whole fish. Key to make sure gills and organ meats are removed as this can create a very bitter taste. Make sure all fish bones used are wild caught in areas with low mercury and that NO DIP or Everfresh was applied. Fish Bone Broth is an excellent source of iodine, and helps to promote thyroid health. Packed with healthy fats, amino acids, and minerals. This stock is a must! Benefits of Broth: ONE: Beneficial in restoration of gut lining and assisting with digestion. Gelatin protects the mucosal lining of digestive tract. TWO: Helps with cold and flus: Study finds that consuming chicken broth during a respiratory infection reduces white blood cells and reducing inflammation. (Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Section, Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE.) THREE: Helps to reduce Joint Pain & Inflammation: Glucosamine in bone broth may stimulate the growth of new collagen. FOUR: High amounts of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus in bone broth helps bones. FIVE: Collagen and gelatin supports hair and nail growth SIX: High in anti-inflammatory amino acids: glycine, and proline. Glycine is also calming and can help with easing and calming nerves. Bone broth is available at Roswell Farmers Market twice a week. So ditch the coffee run and swing by for a cup of broth!

CHOOSING A SUMMER TECHNOLOGY CAMP Barkha Suri, CEO/ Co-founder STREM HQ
A SUMMER CAMP IS a great opportunity to introduce a
new skill or subject matter to your child. There are so many summer camp options, it’s difficult to decide which camp is best. We want our child to have fun, learn new things and experience different worlds. And we want the camp to be reputable and educational. Perhaps your child seems to have an interest in technology, or you simply want them to learn more about it. Technology camps are fun! How do you choose the right camp? 5 things to consider when looking for the right Tech camp: RATIO: The right balance of Student to teacher ratios determines how much attention the instructor is able to give to each child. Too many students to one teacher makes one-on-one instruction nearly impossible. Pro-tip: The adequate amount of student teacher ratio is 10:1 or 20:2, it is important that the ratio is just right. If there are too few students, there will be less social interaction, so children may get bored quickly. A class of 9/10 will be a good social atmosphere and will also challenge the child to perform. EQUIPMENT: All STEM fields need the students to work hands-on. It is essential that the student gets their individual parts or laptops/ desktops to work with. This will enable your child not only to learn at their own pace, but to actually come out with a sense of achievement. Pro- tip: Does the provider have individual machines for students. Are there any hidden costs associated?
QUALITY: Quality equipment is needed to ensure quality learning. For instance, if you are trying to run a graphic software on a chrome book, it simply won’t work! And the student will get frustrated. Whether they have PCs or Macs, the configuration of the device is important. Are the programs built around cutting edge technology and are they laying a solid foundation for advancement? Pro Tip: What kind of machines do they use? Example: an EV3 is a newer model robot than NXT’s; A laptop should have enough RAM (min 4GB) and Hard drive space (500GB+) etc. One of the latest buzz in tech is ‘3D’ and programming languages like JAVA never get old. VARIETY: You want your child to be engaged and try out various things in the summer. Variety will enable your child to explore different aspects of the very vast technology field and determine what they like best. Pro-Tip: If a camp has variety in their offerings, you will have more options for your child; and what more, you might even get multi-enrollment discounts! AGE DIVISION: For the class to run at an equal pace, it is important that the students are grouped properly. If not, the older students might end up moving faster than the younger ones. And in the end, the take away is very little. Pro-tip: Check if the elementary and middle school ages are grouped together or separately.

Four Hot Roswell Restaurants darleen prem photography
By Claire Murphy
ROSWELL HAS PERHAPS the most prolific dining
scene north of the perimeter. In the heart of it is Canton Street, dotted with laid-back little eateries, a sophisticated steakhouse, pizzeria and sushi on the sidewalk — no matter the temperature. Just off Canton Street you’ll find a plethora of dining options offering ample parking and amazing menus. Roswell truly has become the destination dining city of the South. Lucky us! Each issue, we give you a little more information about some of our favorite Roswell restaurants. Last issue we bragged about Osteria Mattone, Table and Main, Foundation Social Eatery and Peach & the Pork Chop. This time, we highlight Aqua Blue, Tutto Kitchen and Bar, Lucky’s Burger & Brew and PURE Taqueria. Enjoy! AQUA BLUE, aquablueatl.com 1564 Holcomb Bridge Rd•Roswell, 30076•770.643.8886 Relax in a setting of cascading curtain walls, rich bamboo floors and soaring ceilings. Enjoy award winning Global Cuisine and a distinguished list of wines, recognized by Jezebel, Wine Spectator, Zagat and DiRoNA. Experience world-class hospitality and a welcoming neighborhood environment. Their trademark is being generous in spirit and always attentive to the unexpressed wishes of their guests, who taste attention to detail and quality in every bite. Fresh seafood and sushi is prepared daily, along with their hand cut steaks cooked to perfection. Enjoy your meal with their classic cocktails and signature martinis or their extensive wine list
of over 50 wines by the glass. You will be captured by their warm, professional and personalized service. Whether it’s an intimate dinner for two or an event for 300, dining at Aqua Blue is always a special affair for business…. or pleasure. TUTTO KITCHEN AND BAR, tuttokitchenandbar.com 942 Alpharetta Street•Roswell, 30075•678.878.2525 One of historic downtown Roswell’s newest additions, Tutto Kitchen and Bar is located on the corner of Elizabeth Way and Alpharetta Street. Enter into a large bar area, crisp and clean pure white bar top surrounded by dark wood tones and cozy, quaint, hand crafted dining room tables. The design of the restaurant left plenty of room in the kitchen for their Executive Chef to perform his culinary passion. An array of appetizers and small plates, an extensive selection of pasta and risotto choices with our Chef signature Short Rib Ragu highlighted, plus experience great entrée variations of Veal, Lamb, Beef and Seafood. Their staff can guide you through an extensive wine menu with great pairings of all their wine selections, as well as traditional sweets and espresso to cap off your experience. Daily specials. Pet-friendly patio. Corporate and Social events. LUCKY’S BURGER AND BREW, luckysburgerandbrew. com 1144 Alpharetta Street•Roswell, 30075•770.518.5695 Owners Ernie and Diane’s golden retriever, Lucky, is the inspiration behind each of their dining establishments. Established in 2010 in Roswell as a local watering hole for patrons and canine
alike, they offer great burgers and ice-cold beverages (especially BREW) in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. Their burgers are made with fresh, never frozen, 80/20 ground Certified Angus Beef, and the freshest produce, which is delivered daily. All of their food is prepared to order to ensure quality and satisfaction. So,sit back, relax and enjoy some great food on the patio with family and friends. We can’t think of any other establishment that does more to support the Roswell community than Lucky’s. You’ll always find local police and firefighters enjoying lunch and Lucky’s many community events make this place a local favorite. PURE TAQUERIA, puretaqueria.com 1143 Alpharetta Street•Roswell 30075•770.817.7873 Chris Sedgwick and Michele Sedgwick, long time Alpharetta residents and successful Atlanta restaurateurs, were looking for a new way to express their style and their love of food. They found the inspiration they were seeking with their take on an authentic Mexican taqueria. Hip, loud, sophisticated and fun, PURE Taqueria has been serving up inspired cuisine and margaritas that pack a wallop. Either way, they have plenty of margaritas, cold beer, killer tacos, unreal ceviche and more! Our staff hung out at PURE last night and commented, “PURE--the rooftaop: The place to be last night! A pinch of college, a stash of Buckhead and a whole heap of local Roswell.” Do yourself a favor and try their Double Barrel Margarita – Herradura double barrel reposado, lime, agave nectar, Combier orange liqueur – you can thank them later!

By Claire Murphy INTRODUCING ROSWELL’S FIRST SCULPTURE TOUR! An initiative of Roswell Arts Fund city of roswell parks which runs April through December 2016--and a partnership between the City of Roswell and the Roswell Arts Fund, ArtAround Roswell is hosting ten established works of art on loan to the city by their artists. The sculptures will be on display in selected Roswell parks from April through December 2016, and a variety of special events and celebrations are planned throughout the year. You’re invited to explore, experience and enjoy! The ten works of art can be found in key park locations throughout Roswell. Whimsical, witty, nostalgic, awe-inspiring — learn more about the sculptures and make plans to experience them for yourself. Come
for a quiet visit, pause during a run or bike ride, or bring your friends and family to enjoy a day in the parks. Pictured above is AVIAN, a sculpture by former Roswell resident Michael Dillon. Poised and ready to take flight, Avian is a large bronze and iron wing mounted on a forged staff. Graceful and kinetic, the wing rotates 360 degrees, creating an interactive experience that transcends any preconceived notion of traditional bronze and iron sculptures. Michael Dillon has lived in and around Roswell for the past 25 years, and his works exemplify the Roswell spirit— steeped in history, with a modern flair. As a blacksmith and artist, his sculptures are hand forged using large industrial hammers to create work that is both visually uncomplicated and intricate.
Avian is located at Roswell Area Park, at the lake. The materials used in this sculpture is bronze and iron
tions are planned throughout the year; a sampling of events follows. Stay tuned for more details on these events and more!

SPRING INTO ACTION By Tracy Coles The Hernandez Group, KW Roswell
Spring is here, and with it comes the beginning of peak season for real estate sales in Roswell and North Metro Atlanta. Currently, supplies are low and demand is increasingly high, so sellers are getting top dollar for their homes with favorable terms and (if priced right), multiple offers. Property values continue to increase so that sellers have more equity in their homes and there is a pent-up demand of ready, willing and able buyers for homes in every price range. In spite of the low inventory, not every home will sell. Price, condition, and marketing all play a role in getting a home sold. These 5 simple yet effective spring cleaning tips can prepare your home for sale and give you the edge over other sellers. 1.DeClutter – give the illusion of space & allow buyers to envision themselves there. 2.Clean your windows & let the sun shine in. 3.Make kitchen & baths white glove clean. 4.Sniff out smells and bad odors. 5.Trim lawn and trees. Make first impressions count! If you’re considering selling, now is the time to “spring into action” and take advantage of the current market conditions.

THE LUMINOUS ARTIST COTTAGE of Southern Style cultivates over 150 artists both local and Nationwide, with art, clothing, jewelry, shoes and so much more represented. Tamara, the owner, is a formally trained artist and is a retired model for clothing, shoe designers, as well as an art director for a large adagency in NYC. With many years of knowing artists she has flocked with, Tamara, her husband and 2 boys decided to open this truly unique store in Roswell over 2 years ago where they have lived for over 25 years. This is a family store, everyone pitches in to help design, create and keep the community tethered into the ideals that we are striving for, “keeping things local “and not mass produced. They work diligently with all their friends to create a unique and non-typical look for your wardrobe and fashion minded women of all ages. Many of the artists design for Neiman Marcus, Sundance catalog, Anthropology and many European clothing lines. This collection of artists they work with make creations of things, many one of a kind creating this unique store. If we can’t find what we are looking for in clothing or jewelry, or want to create a trend, we believe in going to the artists to achieve the next look before it hits the runways. Then we start to make
clothes, jewelry, décor, etc. and make it ours and yours until we move on to the next unusual pieces. We want to make things with our designers to create a dreamy, romantic, comfortable or sexy look for you that are timeless and you can wear now or 20 years from now. Tamara believes that all women are beautiful creations which come in all shapes and sizes that are unique to them only. All we need to do is show them how to bring that out in their everyday lives either with a pair of beautiful earrings to make that outfit perfect, or a whole collection for our customers. It excites us to hear customers come in and say “Every time I wear this outfit I have people stop me and want to know where I found it?”! So the secret is out about this little store in Roswell and what amazing pieces you will find but remember, it’s probably the only one of its kind, so get it while you can. We do have many celebrities and stylists come into our store to get special pieces before a showing or event. So you never know who is wandering around the store to stop by to say hello or find that next treasured purchase for their ensemble. We also do private showings and wardrobe consultations upon appointment. Southern Style – Beautiful Things for the Home, Body & Soul southernstyleinc.com
