Re: “Reynoldstown Wheelbarrow Festival

EMPTY CLICHES DESTROY CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.
we're not congratulating each so much as we're defending it from baseless attacks. atlien1981 missed the website that would have told him what music was playing at what time and what food options would be present, so it sounded like he may have expected something else, which led to his disappointment. easy fix there without calling the festival a sorry excuse.

As far as "EGO DESTROYS ART" is concerned, I have no idea wtf that even means in the context of a festival this small. The last issue this festival has is too much ego. Is that what happened to our italian ice??? too much ego up in it? Ego to have a festival the same day as a World Cup match? ego in the high life tall boys they were selling?

It's one thing if you didn't like the festival or maybe have some feedback on how to make it better next year. You just seem...well...angry. Its funny that you mention shitty festivals and ego and then hock "your festival" on the next line. Irony is fun.

Re: “UPDATE: BZA denies neighborhood association appeal over Fuqua's Glenwood Park project

it's a dumbass argument, but I can't help but wonder what he's referring to by "majority black district." Grant Park? nope. Ormewood Park? Nope. Cabbagetown? Nope. Reynoldstown? Nope.

Not that it should matter, but seems like he's making stuff up.

Re: “The future of Big Chicken

Wow. The thing that strikes me is the length and legwork that went into this. We're lucky as readers to be getting this for free (sidenote: I'd pay for more of this). Thanks Wyatt and CL - well done.

Re: “What's next, Beltline?

So wait, is the next portion of the trail to be paved the Southwest segment? What about the Woodruff Grant & extending the trail through Krog Tunnel to Glenwood?

Re: “CL Atlanta Eliminates Four Positions, Pay Reduced Companywide 5%

So surprised by this. These folks are core to what CL Atlanta is to me. I honestly felt that ever since you guys redesigned this site and started posting/blogging on a super regular basis, things were looking up. CL is all over this town, and depended on in the neighborhoods with your support of local festivals, music, restaurants, and events - not to mention coverage of city hall, etc. It's a part of my life literally everyday, and I guess I naively assumed that same was true for enough people that things were looking up from a bottom-line standpoint. That (core) people are being laid off is really a jolt. Wow.

Re: “The mark of a great city: neighborhood cafes

If you go to a neighborhood cafe on Valentine's Day, are you an amateur diner? Wife and I went to ParkGrounds in Reynoldstown on v-day, so I need to sort this out.
