As the world countinues to struggle with the realities of the coronavirus pandemic, and we in the United States grapple with discerning the difference between the fact and fiction of COVID-19 in the post-election transition of governmental power, Creative Loafing is here to give you the reality of facts on the ground in Atlanta. Life is no longer “business as usual” — the wearing of masks is not only a health precaution, but a matter of life and death. As directives and guidelines change, we are confident that Atlantans will continue to meet the challenge with great entreprenurial spirit and present food, music, arts, and culture in safe and creative ways.
We will continuously add updates and changes to our guides and listings as new information on local businesses and events come to us.
