Around Town

I realized that throughout the course of writing this blog I mention a lot of different places in and around Atlanta--cool stores, gym spots, restaurants, etc--so I thought I would create a page dedicated to talking about some of my favorite spots in the city. I'm not an expert on Atlanta by any means but after living in the city for almost 4 years I hope for this page to be a sort of reference for anyone who is interested in neat places to visit in Atlanta.
