We interupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this special announcement: We’ll return to a more “normal” blogging schedule in the not too distant future…
Joe Truex is the Executive Chef at Watershed On Peachtree, a reincarnation of the original Decatur classic. If you’ve eaten his food- whether at Watershed or at his previous Atlanta restaurant, Repast, you know that the dude knows his food. A quick look under the chef’s toque reveal his thoughts on where Daniel Boulud should [...]
Everyone loves a classic. What they don’t love, however, is that the classics often need to be renovated. Not fun, unless you’ve got a pile of cash, vision, and a stomach for adventure. I just listed one of those rare, fully renovated classics that bridges the gap between 1930 and 2012 quite nicely. Just two [...]
By day, Greg Zinman is a Visiting Assistant Professor at Georgia Tech’s School of Literature, Communication and Culture. By night, he is one of Atlanta’s leading curators of visual arts. This Saturday, he’ll be presenting Inner/Outer Space, a live visual spectacle at 489 Edgewood. If you like psychedelia, old NASA videos, Andy Warhol and electro-acoustic [...]
Homes, like everything else that’s offered for sale (save for Twinkies), eventually go stale. It’s a matter of subjectivity as to when a home for sale crosses the rubicon from attractive and desirable to moldy and undesirable. In the current market, some buyers question homes that have been on on market for over 30 days. [...]
I’ve got some new exterior snapshots of my listing at Litchfield Hundred in Roswell. It’s a beautiful home, and its on a pretty stunning piece of property. I’ll make this short and sweet: 5,800 square feet. Over an acre of land. Gorgeous interior. Lovely swim/tennis community. $585,000. Pretty phenomenal opportunity. Call me to schedule an [...]

David Payne is the co-founder of Scoutmob, an Atlanta-based startup that combines 3 things that I love: Atlanta, local businesses and a good deal. While Mr. Payne should be out finding local deals (Scoutmob officially launches today), I've managed to sequester him at A Is For Atlanta HQ, to answer a question or two...Q. Show More Summary
Ok, so I've been a little behind in posting recently. Ok, a lot behind. But it's all for a good reason: I'm in the process of relaunching AisForAtlanta, version 2.0. That's right folks, the little blog that could is not only getting a facelift, but a whole new lease on life. So stick tight. Sporadic blogging, just for a few more days.
Single men, it turns out, are single for a reason. Dudes just can’t commit!Pretty interesting article in the New York Times this week about the phenomenon of single men that prefer renting to buying. According to the National Association...Show More Summary
According to the National Association of Realtors, the average home buyer visits 10-12 homes before making a decision. While this number vacillates depending on circumstances, it's a pretty realistic yardstick for home searches. Ultimately, the primary "circumstance" at play is the home buyer him/herself.

I'm not sure who to attribute the quote "new year, new you" to, but there's undoubtedly truth to the age old maxim. If you're looking to do a little self-renewal, check out Bliss Spa in the W Hotel Downtown for tension busting, new-you-loving spa treatments. Show More Summary
Peter Tiller (for RealtyTrac, for the AJC) takes my last post a step further with his prognosis for real estate in 2010. Since we're not even one week in into 2010, it's probably a little too early to start passing judgement on his picks, but he definitely provides food for thought. Show More Summary
A huge happy New Year shout-out to my old friend and colleague Amir Korangy. He's the founder and publisher of The Real Deal, a must-read New York real estate broadsheet/website, and an all around good dude. We cut our teeth together back in the go-go 90's, and now he's on CNBC giving real estate tips to the masses. Watch, listen, and learn...
Kudos to Kristina Torres at the Atlanta Journal Constitution for her fascinating piece today on the abandoned Whittaker School campus. Built in 1959, the 1.62 acre Huff Road campus is home to a string of unique hexagonal "pod-like" buildings. Show More Summary
Proving once again that there is no top-10 list outside our grasp (and that there is no limit to the number of top-10 lists that exist), Atlanta was recently ranked as the 5th most literate city in the country. The Most Literate City...Show More Summary
I just googled the phrase "hardwood vs. tile in the kitchen" (life in the fast lane!), and I was somewhat surprised to see that I wasn't the only one interested in the topic. The little search engine that could returned 739,000 results!...Show More Summary
Like America's Oldest Teenager and amateur hour in Times Square, black-eyed peas are an essential part of the New Year's experience. Atlanta entrepreneur Christy Annis is bringing black-eyed peas to the masses, and in doing so, she's presenting the prettiest lil' packages of peas you've ever seen. Show More Summary
