This Saturday!

What’s the best cure for a Halloween Hangover? 
Without a doubt it’s got to be Cabbagetown’s annual Chomp And Stomp Festival! 
Test your palate against celebrity judges by rating the competitors in this now-famous chili cook off.
Wash it down with a delicious local brew, and just kick back and relax to the sounds of the
best live music in town!

The Chomp & Stomp’s got everything you expect from Atlanta’s excellent Festival Scene including a kids area and one of the very coolest Artists Markets around.

…and you wanna maybe earn your Saturday hangover?
Then plan on starting your Chomp & Stomp at the Romp & Stomp,

C-town’s 5K Race that kicks off the day’s festivities at 8am.

The Intown Agent is a big fan of Cabbagetown’s very own
Mary Todd Hairdressing Company.Barbering visionaries Steven Sloss and Sean Gardner have come together to create a
stunning bit of magic

on Carroll St. in Cabbagetown, Atlanta.
The shop is home to a locally based, friendly and talented staff of Hair Care professionals
whose services include:
mens & ladies cuts, hair color, beard trims and hot lather shaves.
The Intown Agent was super excited when Mary Todd Hairdressing Company recently began
widespread release of their own line of hairdressing products.
I love the #2 Pomade. If I wore a scent, this would be it.

In case you haven’t dropped by the shop yet,
here’s my great attempt at a verbal encapsulation of the visual delight that awaits you:
Imagine Alice in Wonderland meets Hieronymus Bosch meets Mayberry NC.
…do you really need any more of a prodding to make a trip to MTHC your next destination?

…and how bout a little family fun?

…over in The EAV, this is happening tonight!
Everybody’s welcome to take part in the costume contest, trick or treat, face painting…
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween for everybody!

What a find!  The classic features are still there, like the heart pine floors, high ceilings, claw foot tub, and two gorgeous fireplace mantles that have never been painted,  yet it’s been lovingly renovated for modern living.  Front porch (with swing!) and rear deck, large level yard, and off street parking round out this beauty.  Click here or on the image above for photos and more information on this Grant Park classic.

Regular readers may’ve noticed we’ve sent more of these Intown Haps emails this year than in the past.  Well, the reason is that we’ll often get a home all lined up to feature, and before the email goes out on Friday it’s already under contract!  Buyers are snatching up good homes as soon as they hit the market, so if you’ve been considering selling your home give me a call.  I’ll be glad to give you a realistic idea of what your home’s worth in today’s market–most people are pleasantly surprised!
