We know it's been here forever and there are plenty of new shopping centers that deserve a nod, but this has been a banner year for LENOX SQUARE
. First, the venerable retail shrine got a much-needed infusion of hipness with the opening of the first Urban Outfitters store in the Southeast (not counting south Florida). Next, while some metro malls got a big vacancy sign where their Macy's used to be, Lenox snared its very own Bloomie's to go with its already upscale mix that includes Restoration Hardware, Anthropologie, Burberry and other shit you can't afford. Hell, instead of shopping, you can just sit back and watch the weekend freakshow of Japanese tourists, free-spending gangstas, spoiled trust-fund babies and Buckhead trophy wives.
