this issue was a great read from cover to cover and i loved a lot of the interesting picks the staff made. but i have a caveat— when is CL going to stop referring to "west midtown" as the "westside"? we had a whole discussion on this at city-data a couple of months ago (at http://www.city-data.com/forum/atlanta/191… and the next page or so).
the consensus some of us came to is that people who refer to west midtown as the entire 'westside' are ignoring a big part of atlanta's history and the importance of neighbourhoods such as vine city, west end, and the newly revived westside village.
i know CL doesn't ignore those neighbourhoods, but calling the 'westside' the best arts district is vague and ignorant. are you talking about westside village? that's the only sub-district with the name 'westside' in it (it's at the corner of MLK and lowery for those unaware).
how about west end? oakland city? of course not— you're talking about a specific district, west midtown. to label that the "westside" implies that it's the only place worth mentioning on the westside of town, like nothing else counts.
before the last 10 years or so, the "westside" was the historically black area of town— everything from bolton road down to campbellton road. now that one part of atlanta has become gentrified, suddenly that very small part of the "westside" is all that counts.
can CL stop promoting this ignorance and please stop referring to 'west midtown' as 'the westside' like the rest doesn't even exist?

I would also like to mention that Mrs. Asha Gomez has one of her brothers and his family living in Atlanta --- check it out with them .
If you need their information __ I can help.
Best of atlanta has been here for 40 years?????? Then it is truly truly sad that you all do not collect the right information --- that you do not investigate a place before writing about them ---
Yes, I am talking about Cardomom Hill restaurant --- to start with--- they do not own it---- the owner lives in Chicago ---- Mrs. Asha Gomez is from a fishing village in Trivandrum, Kerala --- she lived in Gujarat and bombay before coming to the states and has NEVER been even close to any malabar hill---- the people from the coastal area - where Asha Gomez comes from mainly eat rice and gosh curry and tapioca --- in general, the South Indians do not cook fusion foods--- their foods consists of coconut or coconut milk.
The food cooked in the Cardomom hill kitchen is by a Jamaican cook .
Asha Gomez is an Aestitician --- learnt cooking from cook books.
Asha Gomez has never cooked with her mother. They got all this attention cause they know how to wrAp people around their little fingers .
Asha and her husband Robert Palauam--- know the right people in the right places , hence they get free write ups. There are other small indian restaurants that serve authentic indian food.
Please be fair in writing about places. Find out the truth before giving wrong information
Thanks to Creative Loafing, to Valerie King, who got out the vote, and to all those readers who voted for my book, "The Delivery Guy." I post here what others have said about it, and the ways that you can buy it. You can buy it as a paperback, or E Book on Lulu. You can buy it on Amazon Kindle, and at Barnes and Noble.--Mikel K
The Delivery Guy by Mikel K Reviews
It is not lightly that I compare my friend, Mikel K Poet to a Bukowski, John Fante or Hunter S. Thompson. He is twisted. He is misunderstood. He is Arturio Bandini running amok through this crazy life! Mostly, he is genius in its purest, most insane form (and I say that in a good way). Not all will "get" him, but that's ok because he doesn't "get" most of us mere mortals either. His observations, stories and poetry are intriguing, thought-provoking and sometimes downright disturbing...gotta love it!--Valerie King
I read and enjoyed The Delivery Guy very much.
I was surprised that I could finish a book, because I just haven't been able to do that lately.
I now believe that there just isn't much good art out there to begin with - lots of hype - lots of marketing - curb appeal - glitz - not much you can sink into...
Congratulations on cutting through spiritual materialism,
This is a must read for everyone who ever thought about saying 'screw the system' and wanted to face reality in the raw, but haven't, or couldn't, find the guts to do it.
The Delivery Guy is a poet's journal of events and decisions facing a man trying to dig below the surface of corporate security and acceptable mythological and social hiding places, to see what's what and feel the energy of what 'is' in our era.
There are no safety nets to catch Mikel in his walk through the primate insanity of the human experience in a crowded city of frightened Homo Sapiens.
Mikel K is the new Charles Bukowski!
The Delivery Guy is a fast read, full of anecdotes of the author's life: thoughts and musings of an observer, as well as a man who creates his own action (not always for the better).
I found myself laughing aloud in spots, and for me it was worth those moments. It is a prose piece that has a specific cadence; the punctuation fits even if it forces the reader to stop. Spelling and grammar fit within the context of what is being read and can be off-putting until the flow of the text is found by the reader. His prose deals with personal desire, and the real concreteness of his life, his focus is inner and not outward so the imagery is implied and not expressed. Some of the story telling is resolved in surprising ways.
I recommend this to the person who is trying to make sense of their lives. The Delivery Guy definitely delivers some harsh insight.
"I found the book, "The Delivery Guy," by Mikel K to be a refreshing and sometimes uncomfortably honest look into the life of a modern writer struggling to come to terms with a pre-fabricated and often superficial, turn of the century, American society. The battle is dynamic and comes to an uplifting spiritually evolved conclusion. I found it a fascinating read!!!"
Barnes and Noble
so I don't get it - readers voted on categories and those are reflected in the results. However, the critics picks have no bearing or relevance to the same categories - making it impossible to compare between the two
Who designed the way these "Best Of" pages work, some kind of cyber sadist?
Gonna dig it in the print. Screw this.

I agree with Johnny Coolbreeze...what a bunch of negative whiners! If you represent what is so great about being ITP then you can keep it! Talk about closed minded!

"This is the best of Atlanta. It's not the best of Marietta, the best of Ackworth, or whatever other banal, boring, mediocre, pop-up town lays on the fringe. Treat it that way. When you write articles and food reviews, don't write them about places that aren't in Atlanta."
"Va-Hi won for best neighborhood? Hmm...maybe if you're a bougie housewife or a frat douche. Lame!"
"Who the F cares about the spelling of Acworth besides the lame breeders living there? Enjoy your minivans and Applebee's. ;-)"
Am I the only one around here that gets the impression that so many Atlantans are still stuck with "high school" mentalities?
Can you add a section for best graphic & website designer? :) That would be great!

To all you fans out there in Atlanta, Georgia:
Thank you for making me your official superheroine and for supporting my movie, Disabled But Able To Rock!
I hope that I will be able to get my awards soon.
I find it a bit ironic that the people who slander or criticize CL readers, denizens of Atlanta, and the city of Atlanta, of not being cultured or getting outside of their comfort zone, but yet cannot spell the city of Acworth correctly. A-C-W-O-R-T-H
