The King will reply, I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for…
I was surprised to see a Restaurant in Town Sembler, not far from me win Creative Loafing's best under the radar award. True there are some good restaurants in Brookhaven on Dresden and in this Sembler development.
The location of There is also different since it sits across the street from the Costco. And its almost a 2 worlds collide situation since the otherwise decent pedestrian amenities are seemingly walled off from the Costco - the sidewalks don't even turn into the LARGE Costco/Marshalls parking lot.
But no matter, There is in the ground floor of a residential mid rise and connected by nice sidewalks to the rest of the pedestrian oriented Town Brookhaven development. The dining area is good, its not a big place and it is casual and comfortable.
But more importantly as stated above, the menu is great. I've eaten there twice and the cook has come out both times. The Oysters as an appetizer were great, as were the string beans as a side. I also really liked the Ahi Sandwich. I have not tried the Bison Burger yet. The grass fed burger is great especially if you get it with Blue Cheese as their Blue Cheese is Maytag Blue Cheese and the taste of the grass fed burger with the tastier Maytag Blue Cheese is great. The guacamole dip is also very tasty. I've tried the Skirt Stake and liked it but not as much as the Burger or the Mahi Sandwich.
Funny and interesting. Thanks.
I'm assuming they are taking I-24 East from where they are made to Atlanta?
The Graphics seem very sparse, perhaps they are leaving space for Ads?
@Peter in Decatur thanks for the Atlanta Magazine link. So Cobb Chairman Lee's does marketing for a turf company that is a finalist for supplying the new Braves stadium. Nice.
"Regardless, Lee said last week, his duties for TenCate are in marketing, not sales. "My job is to bring awareness" of TenCate's products, he said." - See more at: http://www.atlantamagazine.com/agenda/2013…
Well Chairman Lee certainly has done his job of giving his client TenCate awarness and position for that contract. Even more disturbing is that it may very well be that the Braves build the publicly funded stadium without going through any sort of formal bidding process.
Just another reason why tax breaks for individual businesses should not be done.
Re Weather Channel jobs 75,000 average, what exactly does that mean? Are they folding in some extremely high on air talent and executive contracts with a majority of low paying local T.V. news rates? I knew someone who worked at the weather channel and it seems like most people working there are making well under 50k.
And are they really adding 200 to 300 jobs at that site?
And doesn't Cobb already have some of the lowest tax rates around?
But in the end, asking for a tax break to build more parking turns my stomach.
As to the comment about paying security for MARTA like we pay for the airlines's security, don't forget our property taxes also pay for police protection of the roads. Yep, it's certainly a competitive disadvantage for MARTA that they have to pay for their own security.
Seems like with the parking lots there would be enough room for a park and more development.
I like the idea of some type of not overly dense development going in with City promotion/support so that it brings more street activity. The best way to make a good park is to surround it with a community/housing.
If it is John Rocker writing the tweets they are pretty good.
" canned because there are plenty of college grads working for minimum wage who would love to make $15 an hour."
And then wages for college grads will have to go above $15 an hour as the pool of good college grads has an alternative career path.
Bottom line raising the minimum wage to $15 will have a ripple effect raising middle class wages.
But hey perhaps $15 is a bargaining point. If our minimum wage had been tied to inflation it would be between $10 and $15 now depending on how one calculates it.
