You should try a glazed donut from the original Sarah donuts (Sara donuts) on Satallite in Suwanee. If you think a glazed donut is good at Norcross, you will be blown away with the original glaze there.
The "meal" in the photo is a steal at $64.50.
Things are really sizzling down at the Cock 'n' Balls!
The "Cokentrice" just rolls off the tongue.
It's not just about the welfare of the animal prior to it's demise - but about the healthfulness of the environment it's been raised in. Feedlots and chicken houses are often woefully overcrowded, which can lead to a multitude of health issues. Due to these health conditions, antibiotics are often heavily administered (in fact most feeds automatically include them, how handy) - but that's a whole other issue. I worked in the food industry and soundly believe that commercially raised animals are not nearly as healthy as animals raised in less crowded environments and I will no longer purchase meat that was commercially raised. I've known people that raised chicken for a living, and would not eat their commercial chickens. It does take more commitment and money, but the options are there if someone is inclined to find them.
So sad to see them go :(
The Ricks pioneered Candler Park and Grant Park? Now THAT'S funny!
Yet another unique neighborhood being raped and pillaged by big business. The saddest thing, Paces doesn't give a rat's ass.
Isn't her name Shanna?
Oh they are absolutely running Mi Barrio off.
People are acting as if they thought Paces was going to act with some level of neighborhood integrity. Why? They are not your friends. All of the T-town/GP/Reynoldstown area has been bought up to exploit the area, run up rents, and generally homogenize the Memorial corridor. The infrastructure can't handle thousands more people in there area, but hey, there will be Sprouts! Why the Paces monopoly was ever allowed to happen is beyond me (not really). But you can ask your district reps...
It's folks like Sarah and John Rick who helped pioneer Candler Park and then Grant Park. They have always done business with small business. I can remember when Sarah would not shop outside of the neighborhood just to support small business owners in our community. As someone posted, "there goes the neighborhood." The Buckhead neighborhood in which I grew up is no more and it breaks my heart that our wonderful intown neighborhoods, some of which you could not GIVE a house away 30 years ago, are now being bought up and sold and re-sold to greedy land rapists. So sad.
If they run off Mi Barrio, I sm really going to be crushed. Are they in danger of being squeezed out too?
Atlanta is trying to become NY in becoming a wealthy playground for the 1% while the middle class gets priced out. Who can still afford to rent or buy within I-285? It has become outrageous in the past few years and is stressing lots of people who can't keep up with the price increases. Truly sad and pathetic and outrageous.
No loss. The service has been so bad and the manager so hateful that Stone Soup was already in a downward spiral.
Why do people live in Grant Park, Cabbagetown, Tacotown etc? To be close enough to walk/bike to Ria's, HomeGrown, Little's, Stone Soup, Carroll Street Cafe and all the wonderful neighborhood restaurants/shops. When you remove them all and price them out, what is left of the neighborhood? It is just sad that development and improvements, along with keeping long term residents/businesses in the area can't happen together. I wish that greed and money would stop shaping and changing Atlanta into one big homogeneous suburban play land.
I really don't understand the concern for a creature's lifestyle prior to killing it and eating it.
I've had free-range chickens.
They don't taste any better than regular chickens, but my friend sells them to hipsters for $25 each.
I'll stick with my Buford Highway Farmer's Market dark meat for 20-60 cents/lb.
Way to price out the truly neighborhood businesses. Sopo bicycle co-op was priced out quickly.. And now Stone Soup? So sad.
Have improvements to the building actually been done since Paces took ownership? I certainly don't buy that as reason for much rent increase. And taxes have gone up - but only very marginally, so far.
Revitalization and development can be done like a tide - raising the businesses along with the neighborhood, tempering the pace and increases enough to allow time for the locals to see profit from fresh traffic and keep up with increasing expenses.
Or it can be done like a tidal wave - drowning out the things that gave the neighborhood its character, and killing off the businesses that brought profit to the community members that ran them.
Two businesses will remain in what had been built up as a bit of critical mass in neighborhood commerce: Wright Style Hair Salon, and Cabbagetown Clay and Glassworks Co-op.. Both longtime members of the community. They will need to see a good deal of traffic in order to hang in there with the impending spike in rent; with the much loved Stone Soup getting the boot, the tide doesn't appear to be working in their favor.
This likely means that Joy Wright of Wright Style Hair Salon next door will be out on her ass soon, too. Joy is seriously Grant Park - Cabbagetown OG. She *IS* the fabric of this community and has been for decades.
It's a crying shame that Paces lacks the humanity to find a way for Joy to remain, truly serving the community as she has for decades. Heartless fucks.
Paces is rather disingenuous (sp) regarding Stone Soup's plans, as word on the street is a buyer was lined up for the business. Given that, Paces shouldn't be so down in the mouth. But the rent plus common fees hike was staggering - I think Paces thought they had Stone Soup over a barrel; or, had no intention of ever keeping them and just saw lots of prime space for the picking.
Further, Paces has done tons of work at Industry Studios without ever pulling (paying for) a single permit. As that property has land encumbrance issues, to try to skirt them and dump the tenants with the fallout is shadier all the more.
There goes the neighborhood
