Hello, summer

Every summer for the last few years, I’ve made a summer playlist that I listen to at the beach, while work on this magazine, during runs in the wood or over tall cold pink drinks on the porch with friends.

July 2015 Around Town

Don’t let local children go hungry this summer. With CAC you can provide summer lunches for children who may otherwise go without. Summers can be stressful for families on tight budgets due to increased costs for childcare and food for children who get free lunches at school. A CAC Summer Lunch Bag helps families by providing children with free lunches…

July 2015 Parting Thoughts

This month is our street’s annual block party. What shall we bring? Something meatless, of course. Fortunately there are other vegetarians on our street, so we don’t feel like complete odd balls. But the only way we found that out was by attending a previous block party. That’s where we found out that we have Presbyterians and Libertarians and a…

Volunteers Work Together for a Better Sandy Springs

Nothing keeps a strong community down, not even weather! Despite threats of severe spring thunderstorms on the morning of April 25, hundreds of committed volunteers turned out to volunteer their time and skills to make improvements for the Sandy Springs community at the 13th annual Volunteer for a Better Sandy Springs (VBSS) Day. Presented by Leadership Sandy Springs, a non-profit…

Think Big and Go Small!

The growing legion of Mini Cooper fans and those intrigued by the hatchback’s extraordinarily muscular physique were further won over when Mini Cooper S Hardtop 4 Door was finally introduced. The Minis have always—and justly—boasted about their “go-kart” feel resulting from it nimble drive, impressive sport suspension, and a haymaker of a punch that left virtually nothing to be desired…

Get Automated

With summer here and my mind as well as body lagging far behind, I was overjoyed to learn there was a newly opened Planet Beach Automated Spa located in Dunwoody Village.  Always one intrigued by something new, I thought  an automated spa sounded like just what my pale, end-of-school year, worn-out-self needed.

Sufii: Elegant Spa Beckons

Living here in Perimeter North, we spend our days battling traffic, steeling ourselves against more stressors than we realize. No wonder so many new spas have opened in our community. Lucky for us! With many spas offering seemingly identical services, why chose one over another? When we look for a spa to treat ourselves, we are also looking for an…

Home Sweet Ronald McDonald House

Marcia and Howard Rohan have been residents of Brookhaven for more than 35 years. They have three children and live in a blossoming neighborhood. But when their 18-year-old son Jason was in a head-on car accident in 1990, their lives changed forever.

Summer’s Sweetest Salads

We did it again. Following in the fork prints of past throw-downs (remember the mac ‘n cheese challenge? the summer cocktail sip-off? the holiday sweets shoot out?), we asked a few choice restaurant chefs, home delivery chefs and event catering chefs to head to the nearest garden and toss up a fabulous fresh summer salad for this issue. We readied…
