Can you believe this is the 10th year for CL's annual Lust List? We've visited a lot of bars, coffee shops, and salons over the past decade to prove what we've always known: The people cutting our hair, mixing our drinks, and serving our food around Atlanta can be just as hot — and a hell of a lot more accessible, theoretically — as anyone you typically see on TV and in magazines.
This year, we decided to tweak our presentation. Instead of photographing Lust Listers in their workplaces, we went with a minimalist, Richard Avedon-style approach to our portraits. Hope you like it. Also, in addition to our extended online interviews, we've added videos so you can get to know these folks a little more intimately. Those with a tendency to drool, consider yourself warned.
If you happen to stalk — er, bump into — one of these people in the wild, follow this time-worn advice for best results: Be cool, not creepy. And no pickup lines, please. Actually, it might help to learn some unfamiliar tongue. After all, some of this year's crop of Lusters can speak Arabic, Vietnamese, Spanish, Japanese, and probably a few other languages as well. What'd you think we meant?
And, as always, tip generously. Even hot people have to eat.
