Atlanta Restaurant Week

It’s finally here! Downtown Restaurant Week 2013 is ON!  As in the past, Downtown’s best restaurants will be offering fantastic prix-fixe brunches, lunches, and dinners at unbelievable prices all week, but this year they’ve stepped it up a notch and are partnering with some of the city’s fabulous iconic hotels offering great staycation rates.  Sample the signature cocktails without having to worry about how you’ll get home–and you’ll get to know downtown again.  It really is a special place. Click on the image above to find out more about all the faboo events they’ve come up with this year, or here for a complete list of the participating restaurants–you’ll be glad you did.

2013 Atlanta Ice Cream Festival
You knew that July is National Ice Cream Month, right?  No?  Well then you have some catching up to do!  Your best bet’s going to be to cruise by Piedmont Park Saturday for the the 3rd Annual Atlanta Ice Cream Festival.  And don’t let the name fool you–this festival’s not just about promoting our nation’s favorite dessert, but also working it into a healthy lifestyle.  Get ready for a full day of fun with lots of laughter, wellness demonstrations and activities, and even free health screenings…and of course, ICE CREAM!  There’s no charge to get in, but I guarantee you’re gonna want to patronize the vendors!  Click on the image above and check out their nifty website and learn all sorts of interesting trivia about ice cream, or hit up their facebook page here.

…and that’s not all the fun haps going on around town this weekend.

 Ormewood Park Bungalow!

1064 Delaware Ave • $499,900

Spectacular inside and out, this historic Craftsman bungalow on one of Ormewood Park’s best streets will be hitting the market soon, but it won’t last long. This thoughtful renovation retains the historic character while providing all the modern conveniences, as well as energy-wise upgrade throughout. Features include original unpainted woodwork, heart pine floors, three gas fireplaces, plantation shutters, a master suite on the main floor with an exquisite master bath, recently renovated kitchen, and a large upstairs bedroom/loft (easily converted to two rooms) with a full bath. Out front there’s an over sized rocking-chair front porch overlooking the beautifully landscaped garden, but the big payoff is right out back, with the extra-large fenced yard, a relaxing screened porch, 2-story workshop with lots of extra storage space, plus a saltwater swimming pool and hot tub.  This house is soon to be listed, but give us a call and we’ll see about a preview.
