I get it. A whiskey-ginger is a REALLY hard sell in the South. But, alas, I love them too. I will order them on any menu.
"Atlanta is becoming more and more white and stupid white liberals that live within the city think they are open minded "
yeah bruh okay bruh you sound open minded and smart af bruh
Who is that on the cover picture?
"they can just go to Atlantic Station for the same wares sans ghetto."
you live in Poncey Highlands and consider the area ghetto
you're a Buckhead Betty
How about the Scarlett O'Hara?
Hey damnwhitepeoplearestupid.........you sorta sound like the pot calling the kettle black or, would that be white?
Anyway....point is, you should shut up because your stupid is showing and it's not very becoming.
holy shit, half you dumbfuckers just described Gwinnett County demographic, the most diverse in the GA and in the top5 nationally, the city of Atlanta isn't as diverse as most of the idiots that live there think. Atlanta is becoming more and more white and stupid white liberals that live within the city think they are open minded when actually they tend to be pretty down right racist.
it's simple, half these fuckers use MSG to make their shit good
holy shit, it sounds like a place for yuppies who think they are foodies when half these chefs that are opening up their bullshit stalls use MSG to make their shitty food good....
"damn you scared brvh?"
Not at all, I live in the area and they don't bother me. I actually find them highly entertaining. I was making reference to the Buckhead Betties that PCM is designed to attract. What will THEY think of them? Why would they come to PCM and walk along the sidewalk that looks like a bomb hit it and deal with all of the shenanigans when they can just go to Atlantic Station for the same wares sans ghetto.
"i guess that whole foods across the street is doomed"
How do you not understand the difference? Whole Foods is a grocery store. Locals shop there. It's not designed to be a tourist attraction.
"Do nothing about the herds of cracked out bums that live on the sidewalk below, harassing everyone that walks by."
damn you scared brvh?
i guess that whole foods across the street is doomed
We do need to HELP the "cracked out bums," though, and invest more in homelessness and mental health.
I am looking forward to the food at PCM, but little else, as I agree - it sounds very mall-ish, with the chain stores, etc. The food vendors sound awesome - food brings cultural value. Chain stores bring nothing of value, except herds of suburbanites.
And dammit if I am not going to miss the Masquerade. I don't see why ATL can't improve upon itself WITHOUT overrunning the city with all of these ugly-ass yuppie-shit condos. Keep the history and cultural flavor!
And HELP the homeless; stop denigrating them. AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR EVERYONE.
@internetcontrarian it did in Williamsburg and Downtown LA.
Implying that any of this will last.
> Spend millions renovating huge derelict building in the ghetto.
> Invite high end stores like West Elm that only vapid yuppies are interested in.
> Do nothing about the herds of cracked out bums that live on the sidewalk below, harassing everyone that walks by.
What could go wrong?
"Oh fun, a bunch of hipster restaurants and chain boutiques."

@Macgyver51 Atlanta is growing and diversity is coming. It's been largely African American for a minute and if we don't accept change then we have learned nothing from our Civil Rights past. I'm black and I know where you are coming from, but we all have to live together, and we ALL like and deserve nice things. The bigger issue is making sure that there is more developement on the west side, in addition to neighborhoods like Old Fourth Ward, East Atlanta, etc.,but that's kind of off topic. I'm glad to see the end of abandonment of this building!!! My hope is that they will get a handle on the crime and drugs and that people will be able to shop and eat in peace, without worrying about your car being broken into. This is wonderful news for ALL Atlantans!
MacGyyer51 you need to pull out of the last century. Lots of successful black, Jewish, hispanic, asian, Indian folks in Atlanta.
Oh fun, a bunch of hipster restaurants and chain boutiques. It's like the mall except for rich white people.
