TOES

A hodgepodge of crumbling bricks, graffiti, and saw-tooth roofing make up Pratt-Pullman Yard, one of Atlanta’s most historic and horror movie-inspiring settings. Gentrification will soon give it a facelift. But on Sunday, November 4, composer and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra bass player Michael Kurth will help breath life into the historic structure one last time with a soundtrack for Over//Under an exhibition dedicated to fallen street artist TOES (Harrison Keys). Inspired by Keys’ street tag and art, Kurth wrote “TOES,” the first of a three-movement musical composition titled “Everything Lasts Forever.” TOES, who died in 2016, left a lasting impression on Atlanta’s art scene by infusing dark humor and emotional complexity into countless paintings, drawings, and works of graffiti art. The evening will feature an array of the late artist’s paintings and works on paper, curated by his sister Sarah Keys. A limited edition of prints will be available, with all proceeds benefiting St. Jude’s Recovery Center, Inc.

Free (donations at the door). 6 p.m. Sun., Nov. 4. Pratt-Pullman Yard, 225 Rogers St. N.E. www.facebook.com/events/649809412080971.

Featured items include a sweet potato hash with sausage, togarashi aioli and duck egg, and an egg-in-a-hole croissant with sausage gravy, honey, and tomatoes. Each table will also receive a complimentary basket of housemade pastries. 

Second Self Beer Co.  teased the release of Junipa, a new seasonal IPA infused with the flavors of gin, juniper berries and rosemary, for a smooth and aromatic beer at a sneaky 6.4 percent ABV. Junipa will be available in cans and on draft November through February. 

Pop-up alert! On Nov. 1  El Super Pan  is whipping out the El Burro Pollo pop-up for Dia de los Muertos. Dishes on the menu include Pozole Rojo, Mexican Tuna Escabeche, Barbacoa Tacos, and more. To keep the excitement going, Mexican beers and craft cocktails will be flowin’ all night long, including: Paloma made with tequila blanco and grapefruit soda; a Michelada with lager, spicy tomato, and chipotle soy; and Santa Muerte, made with mezcal and Campari. 

The alcoholic triforce of UrbanTree Cidery, ASW Distillery, and 18.21 Bitters is officially landing, y’all. On Thurs., Nov. 8, guests are invited to  Tire Fire Wants You , a celebration of the right to vote featuring election-themed cocktails and more. I mean, what’s more American than voting and booze? 

Butcher & Brew Fest  returns for a second year on Nov. 10. The festival celebrates the good things in life: craft beer, quality food, music, and games. Also available are pretzel necklaces, which alone are pretty cool. Tickets are $45, and a portion of the proceeds are donated to the Atlanta Humane Society. 

New  HOBNOB  coming soon! The beloved neighborhood tavern owned by husband and wife duo Sean and Becky Yeremyan currently resides in Midtown and Brookhaven and is happily expanding to Dunwoody Perimeter Place (1221 Ashford Crossing), set to open doors in December — just in time for the holidays. "

The Golden Age of science fiction may have passed about half-a-century ago, but the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing left a lingering impression on pop culture. The sci-fi alter-ego of Jacob Chisenhall, aka Delorean Gray, crafts new-wave space pop that blasts listeners outter dimensions of the universe. “Aristonauts” is the latest single taken from the group's forthcoming sophomore album Otaku Punk, which hits digital platforms in January 2019.

The video, directed by Evan Brewer, features a female protagonist whos's ready, willing, and able to participate in the space mission only to be told it is too dangerous — a common damsel in distress theme found all too often throughout classic sci-fi narratives. Chisenhall addresses this gender-based lack of faith when he sings, “I thought by now you would trust me.”

In the end, the lady in red displays Spock-like strength and agility to save the day. “It’s about rising above the idea of ‘I am part of this group and I have an identity with this unit, but even my people don’t trust me,’" Chisenhall says.

In 2017, Delorean Gray's sophomore release, Star Tropics, beamed in from deep space, as Chisenhall, the lone crewman aboard the SS Dreamboat rocketed toward a cosmic tropical paradise in the CD's lead single, "Chrome Bikini. Otaku Punk finds Chisenhall embracing change, as Delorean Gray expands from solo project into a full band featuring Freeman Leverett (bass) and Jason Bronson (keyboard) to flesh out a full-bodied sound.

“Aristonauts” is the first in a series of videos taken from the upcoming album. Prepare to dust off the VHS player that's been hiding in the storage closet for the last fe decades, the final project will be released as a VHS tape.

Sci-fi classics may have set the tone for extraterrestrial adventures, but modern day themes of equality eclipse the gender stereotype and carry music into the future. "

The Golden Age of science fiction may have passed about half-a-century ago, but the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing left a lingering impression on pop culture. The sci-fi alter-ego of Jacob Chisenhall, aka Delorean Gray, crafts new-wave space pop that blasts listeners outter dimensions of the universe. “Aristonauts” is the latest single taken from the group's forthcoming sophomore album Otaku Punk, which hits digital platforms in January 2019.

The video, directed by Evan Brewer, features a female protagonist whos's ready, willing, and able to participate in the space mission only to be told it is too dangerous — a common damsel in distress theme found all too often throughout classic sci-fi narratives. Chisenhall addresses this gender-based lack of faith when he sings, “I thought by now you would trust me.”

In the end, the lady in red displays Spock-like strength and agility to save the day. “It’s about rising above the idea of ‘I am part of this group and I have an identity with this unit, but even my people don’t trust me,’" Chisenhall says.

In 2017, Delorean Gray's sophomore release, Star Tropics, beamed in from deep space, as Chisenhall, the lone crewman aboard the SS Dreamboat rocketed toward a cosmic tropical paradise in the CD's lead single, "Chrome Bikini. Otaku Punk finds Chisenhall embracing change, as Delorean Gray expands from solo project into a full band featuring Freeman Leverett (bass) and Jason Bronson (keyboard) to flesh out a full-bodied sound.

“Aristonauts” is the first in a series of videos taken from the upcoming album. Prepare to dust off the VHS player that's been hiding in the storage closet for the last fe decades, the final project will be released as a VHS tape.

Sci-fi classics may have set the tone for extraterrestrial adventures, but modern day themes of equality eclipse the gender stereotype and carry music into the future.     Jhourdynne Winston and Bryce Shoemaker BLAST OFF: Delorean Gray prepares for liftoff with latest single ‘Aristonauts’.                                    FIRST LISTEN: Delorean Gray’s ‘Aristonauts’ "

  string(3612) "I grew up in a small town, where cheese varieties aren’t exactly at the top of the priority list. To be completely honest, the most in-depth experience I’d had until recently was choosing between provolone or pepper jack at Subway. It wasn’t until my boyfriend, who’s from Denmark — where Danish Blue Cheese reigns supreme — began laying out plates of cheese with names I couldn’t pronounce that I started to become fascinated with this stuff. Come to find out, there’s an entire festival dedicated to this dairy-derived wonder — Atlanta’s sixth annual Cheese Fest.

And while it’s no surprise that ATL loves a good festival, when it comes to cheese, we’re talking a whole different kind of excitement. From the most basic grilled cheese sandwich to the finest of aged gouda, the Cheese Fest Atlanta on September 28, sponsored by Gourmet Foods International (GFI), La Bonne Vie, and Wisconsin Cheese, promises a community-centered evening packed with educational opportunities. To add to the goodness, all proceeds from the event will benefit the Giving Kitchen, a nonprofit that provides emergency assistance to restaurant workers through financial support and a network of community resources.



“Our mission is to bring the community together and educate people about all these wonderful artisan cheeses from small producers and sample the different specialty foods we have available,” says GFI’s Susan Robertson, “both domestic and imported items.”

The festival began as the brainchild of GFI president Brian Scott, as a chance to have vendors of GFI such as Emmi Roth, Sartori, Plymouth Cheese, Savannah Bee Company, and more interact directly with consumers. GFI is a strong supporter of Flavor of Georgia, a contest held each year for Georgia-owned businesses to enter food made in the state. This year, after the Flavor of Georgia competition was over in March, Robertson returned with an idea in mind. 

“I went back to UGA and mentioned I’d like to have a Georgia tent at the festival,” she says. ”That kind of opened the door to having other vendors be present. We’ve started taking vendors that aren’t already working with GFI. We’re really pushing the local component this year.”

Now, the festival has grown to welcome more than just current vendors, by diving headfirst into Georgia’s local scene and including Goodson Pecans, Lane’s BBQ, Suga’s Pimento Cheese, and more.

Furthermore, guests who purchase VIP tickets can attend one of the many educational sessions, such as Olives Galore, and A Pig and a Pint, that revolve around pairing cheeses with beer, wine, and champagne. This year, the popular Cheesemakers Unplugged sessions, where cheesemakers come to speak candidly about the steps involved in producing their cheeses, will feature the Cellars at Jasper Hill Farm.

“We’re trying to teach people the different qualities and characteristics of cheeses so they can get a better feel for what’s out there,” Robertson says.

Whether it’s cheese from around the world or my old friend pepper jack, gluttons can unite for a weekend to taste and celebrate in the name of cheese. Bonus: There’s a cheese meltdown, where chefs battle it out to be crowned as the creator of the greatest melty cheese dish. So far City Winery, Southbound, Half-Shepherd Market, Cobb Energy, High Road Craft Ice Cream, Osteria Mattone, and Country Club of Roswell have signed up for the competition. 

$35-$65. 5-10 p.m. Fri., Sept. 28. Historic Fourth Ward Park, 665 North Ave. N.E. http://thecheesefest.com/."

This year, after the Flavor of Georgia competition was over in March, Robertson returned with an idea in mind. 

“I went back to UGA and mentioned I’d like to have a Georgia tent at the festival,” she says. ”That kind of opened the door to having other vendors be present. We’ve started taking vendors that aren’t already working with GFI. We’re really pushing the local component this year.”

Now, the festival has grown to welcome more than just current vendors, by diving headfirst into Georgia’s local scene and including Goodson Pecans, Lane’s BBQ, Suga’s Pimento Cheese, and more.

Furthermore, guests who purchase VIP tickets can attend one of the many educational sessions, such as Olives Galore, and A Pig and a Pint, that revolve around pairing cheeses with beer, wine, and champagne. This year, the popular Cheesemakers Unplugged sessions, where cheesemakers come to speak candidly about the steps involved in producing their cheeses, will feature the Cellars at Jasper Hill Farm.

“We’re trying to teach people the different qualities and characteristics of cheeses so they can get a better feel for what’s out there,” Robertson says.

Whether it’s cheese from around the world or my old friend pepper jack, gluttons can unite for a weekend to taste and celebrate in the name of cheese. Bonus: There’s a cheese meltdown, where chefs battle it out to be crowned as the creator of the greatest melty cheese dish. So far City Winery, Southbound, Half-Shepherd Market, Cobb Energy, High Road Craft Ice Cream, Osteria Mattone, and Country Club of Roswell have signed up for the competition.

  string(5861) "This past Sunday I began my usual routine of sitting in bed and browsing the Internet. As I proceeded deeper into the black hole of random Internet searches including dog spaghetti-eating competitions and “Kitchen Nightmares” reruns, I came across a page dedicated to tiny but livable houses. Once the long drawn-out “aww” subsided that came with clicking through the photographs of diminutive kitchens and living rooms, I dug a little deeper to find that these tiny houses represent something much bigger — a tiny house movement.

Tiny House Atlanta, a program for the nonprofit organization MicroLife Institute, raises public awareness about the tiny house movement. The organization says that bigger isn’t always better for the people of Atlanta, and is gaining momentum by creating walkable, sustainable, micro-hood communities. On Sept. 29-30, the third annual Tiny House Festival will take place in downtown Decatur to educate Georgians on downsizing and sustainability.

“People are realizing we’re in a housing crisis in the city and a housing shortage,” says Will Johnston, CEO of Tiny House Atlanta. “We need to diversify options. Not everyone is going to want to live in a tiny space, and that’s okay. Not everyone is meant to live in what someone else’s idea of home is.”

Four years ago, Johnston made a spontaneous decision — the kind we all secretly desire at least a little bit. He quit his job, sold off the majority of his personal possessions, and made the drastic move to New Zealand to backpack and work in vineyards for three months. That’s where Johnson discovered the minimalist lifestyle.

“I saw smaller structures and a better community and attitude toward life,” Johnston says. “It wasn’t until I came back to the United States that I came across the tiny house movement. It was that mindset of not owning anything and being free — I carried that mindset into my next adventure of the tiny house world.”

By definition, a tiny house is (adorably) less than 400 square feet. The tiny house movement began in the ’90s. According to Johnston, 70 percent of America is going to be within a city in the next 20-30 years. Could tiny homes solve the problem of how to house the increasing amount of people flooding toward the urban lifestyle?

A few tiny homes have settled into ATL and are rented out nightly for curious visitors. Dubbed the “hipster” tiny house, one East Atlanta Village tiny home goes for $50 a night on Airbnb and is walking distance from all the offerings of the EAV community — 529 Bar, Emerald City Bagels, etc. Another miniature home is located in the Edgewood community, one mile from Little 5 Points.

While there are rental options available for tiny houses, Johnston hopes the homes will soon become an option for those looking to live an urban lifestyle without breaking the bank. To him, bigger doesn’t mean better.

“We have a negative connotation in America that if you’re living in a smaller space you’re not successful, or you’re poor, or not doing well in life,” Johnston says. “But to me, people living in smaller spaces realize that there’s more to life than collecting stuff. I believe that small spaces propel people forward. You’re not supposed to live in your home, you’re supposed to live out in the community and in the world.”



Johnston and the rest of the crew at Tiny House Atlanta are hard at work advocating for Atlanta ordinance changes. Last year, the Atlanta City Council voted on and approved an amendment to city zoning laws that allows accessory dwelling units, or a secondary house or apartment that shares the building lot of a primary house. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the amendment affects R-5 — two-family residential — zoning, which includes Grant Park, Old Fourth Ward, Edgewood, Candler Park, and Inman Park. Now, the Council is looking at expanding ordinances that deal with zoning, which would allow for diversification of more housing options.

“We have a variety of spaces that I feel would fit the needs of different people, but we also have overlay expectations of taxes, zoning codes, and other things that keep us from allowing a more diverse housing option that still is a part of the community — that still pays taxes and creates great space,” Johnston says. “What we need is to be able to be creative with our space and use our space well.”

Johnston sees tiny homes being built in older neighborhoods, specifically in southwest Atlanta and areas that look for progressive housing options, in the future.

“There’s currently an uproar about the affordability of homes around the Beltline, but there’s ways to create programs that would inspire people to build and look at other housing options,” he says.

Of course, the biggest concern for the people of Atlanta is the price to live this tiny life. Johnston says it’s actually much less costly than living in the typical home. In fact, internet lifestyle blog The Tiny Life reports the average cost to build a standardized home is approximately $272,000, while the average cost to build a tiny home can be as low as $23,000.

“I see this as an option, and I’m not saying everyone has to live tiny,” Johnston says. “I just want it to be seen as a legitimate option for people who want to live like this.”

While privacy and living big is the preferred method of life for some, Johnston believes there’s more to life than seclusion and material possessions. He believes Americans would be much happier if they interacted with each other more. If we saw what was out there, maybe, just maybe, we’d be more connected.

Last year, the Atlanta City Council voted on and approved an amendment to city zoning laws that allows accessory dwelling units, or a secondary house or apartment that shares the building lot of a primary house. According to the ~~[https://www.ajc.com/lifestyles/home/tiny-houses-approved-for-the-city-atlanta/YV3R566xDh1zDj1CRJy5OK/|~~#000000:Atlanta Journal Constitution~~]~~#000000:, the amendment affects R-5 — two-family residential — zoning, which includes Grant Park, Old Fourth Ward, Edgewood, Candler Park, and Inman Park. Now, the Council is looking at expanding ordinances that deal with zoning, which would allow for diversification of more housing options.~~

~~#000000:“We have a variety of spaces that I feel would fit the needs of different people, but we also have overlay expectations of taxes, zoning codes, and other things that keep us from allowing a more diverse housing option that still is a part of the community — that still pays taxes and creates great space,” Johnston says. “What we need is to be able to be creative with our space and use our space well.”~~

~~#000000:Johnston sees tiny homes being built in older neighborhoods, specifically in southwest Atlanta and areas that look for progressive housing options, in the future.~~

I feel motivated by reading this blog. It's famous for [http://https://www.therentalboat.com/st_tour/al-maya-island/|al Maya island offers] and look for some causes for casting. But what if you don't have a boat? That's not a big difficulty. Solely you must make is rent a boat and yourself remain competent to perform. If you need help with renting a yacht, reflect.

Initial of all, you should search for a good business online. Make sure you consider the ratings of the rental, reviews left by the consumers, and the costs of the rentals. Aside from this, you must read the consents and organizations  Tiny House Atlanta educates on downsizing and sustainability 8605  2018-09-03T09:00:00+00:00 Tiny but mighty laureneleathers@gmail.com Lauren Leathers Lauren Leathers Lauren Leathers 2018-09-03T09:00:00+00:00  This past Sunday I began my usual routine of sitting in bed and browsing the Internet. As I proceeded deeper into the black hole of random Internet searches including dog spaghetti-eating competitions and “Kitchen Nightmares” reruns, I came across a page dedicated to tiny but livable houses. Once the long drawn-out “aww” subsided that came with clicking through the photographs of diminutive kitchens and living rooms, I dug a little deeper to find that these tiny houses represent something much bigger — a tiny house movement.

Tiny House Atlanta, a program for the nonprofit organization MicroLife Institute, raises public awareness about the tiny house movement. The organization says that bigger isn’t always better for the people of Atlanta, and is gaining momentum by creating walkable, sustainable, micro-hood communities. On Sept. 29-30, the third annual Tiny House Festival will take place in downtown Decatur to educate Georgians on downsizing and sustainability.

“People are realizing we’re in a housing crisis in the city and a housing shortage,” says Will Johnston, CEO of Tiny House Atlanta. “We need to diversify options. Not everyone is going to want to live in a tiny space, and that’s okay. Not everyone is meant to live in what someone else’s idea of home is.”

Four years ago, Johnston made a spontaneous decision — the kind we all secretly desire at least a little bit. He quit his job, sold off the majority of his personal possessions, and made the drastic move to New Zealand to backpack and work in vineyards for three months. That’s where Johnson discovered the minimalist lifestyle.

“I saw smaller structures and a better community and attitude toward life,” Johnston says. “It wasn’t until I came back to the United States that I came across the tiny house movement. It was that mindset of not owning anything and being free — I carried that mindset into my next adventure of the tiny house world.”

By definition, a tiny house is (adorably) less than 400 square feet. The tiny house movement began in the ’90s. According to Johnston, 70 percent of America is going to be within a city in the next 20-30 years. Could tiny homes solve the problem of how to house the increasing amount of people flooding toward the urban lifestyle?

A few tiny homes have settled into ATL and are rented out nightly for curious visitors. Dubbed the “hipster” tiny house, one East Atlanta Village tiny home goes for $50 a night on Airbnb and is walking distance from all the offerings of the EAV community — 529 Bar, Emerald City Bagels, etc. Another miniature home is located in the Edgewood community, one mile from Little 5 Points.

While there are rental options available for tiny houses, Johnston hopes the homes will soon become an option for those looking to live an urban lifestyle without breaking the bank. To him, bigger doesn’t mean better.

“We have a negative connotation in America that if you’re living in a smaller space you’re not successful, or you’re poor, or not doing well in life,” Johnston says. “But to me, people living in smaller spaces realize that there’s more to life than collecting stuff. I believe that small spaces propel people forward. You’re not supposed to live in your home, you’re supposed to live out in the community and in the world.”



Johnston and the rest of the crew at Tiny House Atlanta are hard at work advocating for Atlanta ordinance changes. Last year, the Atlanta City Council voted on and approved an amendment to city zoning laws that allows accessory dwelling units, or a secondary house or apartment that shares the building lot of a primary house. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the amendment affects R-5 — two-family residential — zoning, which includes Grant Park, Old Fourth Ward, Edgewood, Candler Park, and Inman Park. Now, the Council is looking at expanding ordinances that deal with zoning, which would allow for diversification of more housing options.

“We have a variety of spaces that I feel would fit the needs of different people, but we also have overlay expectations of taxes, zoning codes, and other things that keep us from allowing a more diverse housing option that still is a part of the community — that still pays taxes and creates great space,” Johnston says. “What we need is to be able to be creative with our space and use our space well.”

Johnston sees tiny homes being built in older neighborhoods, specifically in southwest Atlanta and areas that look for progressive housing options, in the future.

“There’s currently an uproar about the affordability of homes around the Beltline, but there’s ways to create programs that would inspire people to build and look at other housing options,” he says.

Of course, the biggest concern for the people of Atlanta is the price to live this tiny life. Johnston says it’s actually much less costly than living in the typical home. In fact, internet lifestyle blog The Tiny Life reports the average cost to build a standardized home is approximately $272,000, while the average cost to build a tiny home can be as low as $23,000.

“I see this as an option, and I’m not saying everyone has to live tiny,” Johnston says. “I just want it to be seen as a legitimate option for people who want to live like this.”

While privacy and living big is the preferred method of life for some, Johnston believes there’s more to life than seclusion and material possessions. He believes Americans would be much happier if they interacted with each other more. If we saw what was out there, maybe, just maybe, we’d be more connected.
