the mural is on private property, painted by an artist that donated their talent, time, and creativity to a wall in an under appreciated part of town. the organization that made it happen did so by donations, including time, product, space, etc... Churches, Synagogues, Mosques & Temples exist across the street from far more controversial exhibits all over the world, Georgia and specifically the areas the non-profit group targeted around town. Get mad about that
Should mention it was a verbal only kitchen and KM is a glorified Expeditor but to this day it was the hardest job I ever had and one I look back on with reverence and gratitude....
Mine is the sound of the Remanco POS tickets rolling out of the printer and hitting the floor in concession, all the while, shouting out firing orders and no one can hear me...the tickets keep printing and its chaos....Thanks to my first KM job back at the beloved Indigo Coastal Grill, Ahhh the days...Probably why I dislike POS systems.
Nothing tastes as good as cold fried chicken from a picnic basket, in the sunshine, with good friends. I'm not saying it's the same...It's just good stuff, like homemade pickles, salt on watermelon and lime in a iced cerveza!
This article is hopefully the first of many to get Atlantans talking about the selective enforcement of certain codes. It is a complete joke that so many restaurants have daily specials and the code is only selectively enforced when adversarial entities complain about one business and not the others. Codes/Ordinances were not designed as leverage against one another. When neighbors or competitors complain, code enforcement "must" respond. My business was one of 6 cited for "drink Special" but the ONE business that the charge was not dropped. When I saw the billboard on Monroe I went nuts... the same way I do when I go out and see 1/2 price wine, and $3.00 margaritas all over town. It is a travesty that city employees are manipulated by "noisy" neighbors, ie the "squeaky wheel". Please get out and talk about this...Support businesses regardless, they are why you moved in town to begin with...and PS Wasn't Loca Luna's location a massive gay video bar with the same issues, before that the "cove" was over there somewhere, there's always...always been load busy boom overthere & City of Atlanta Police Officers love a good $1beer after work.
I tried to go to the Vigil this morning but missed it because my car was broken into at home, overnight and I had to wait for the police to make the report. Not just my car but also my neighbors cars. The level of brazneness has definately increased because the criminals know the police won't respond in a timely way. Even last night as I was confirming the time of the vigil this morning and a car parked on the bridge at Freedom Pkwy was broken into, during early evening hours with tons of people walking around. call your council members, call the police, call the mayor's office, get to know your neighbors and use 911 whenever you see something you even think is out of the ordinary!
Should have named the article how to write a pleasing article about food you didn't enjoy, in a atmosphere you didn't like but who's owners you didn't want to make angry...what happened to the teeth grinding clear criticsm of cl past
