Taking Applications for Downtown Pop-Up Party

We have room for a couple more vendors at the Downtown Pop-Up Party on March 29th at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, 1-5 pm. These few spots will go quickly so if you are a craft or vintage vendor and you’re interested, jump on it!

Some vendor spaces are inside and some are outside. All will be very visible for this super fun event! Once accepted, vendors will be given the option for inside or outside on a first come, first served basis (we will email you your choices). We will not be offering refunds if the weather is bad.

The application is here. Filling these last few spots will be done on a rolling basis. Meaning, go apply now before it’s too late! The event offers a sneak-peek at some of the pop-up shop tenant who will be located along the streetcar route plus all that the Curb Market has to offer!

Snow in Atlanta

It snowed here in Atlanta yesterday. And the city shut down in to a terrible gridlock turning commutes that normally take 30-45 minutes into 10-hour long treks. Yes, you read that correctly: 10 HOURS. A lot of people became stranded and are still not home this morning. I’m feeling very lucky and thankful and sad for my fellow ATLiens who have had a rough time of it.

This article by local writer Jessica Blankenship sums it up well (make sure you click on “One guy” for further summing up). Please be safe and help others when possible.

20140129-073125.jpgView from my commute home yesterday on MARTA, which only took about 10 minutes longer than normal due to cautious walking. I won’t soapbox it while people are suffering, but I will say I wish our city had more transit.

A Walk Downtown

Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day from Atlanta!
We took a walk downtown last week to see the route of the Atlanta Streetcar. The project will be complete this spring and will connect downtown to the MLKing Historic District. It’s going to be a really cool addition to Atlanta. Here are a few snapshots we took along the way, including a photo of the Hero mural of Congressman John Lewis painted by our friends at The Loss Prevention.
