Our Atlanta show starts today! We're looking forward to meeting many of you there. The show takes place in the Americasmart building in downtown Atlanta and lasts from January 6th-13th. For travel information (including booking a hotel, transportation, directions etc) you can visit the Americasmart website.
For all those who are wondering what to do, where to eat (my favorite part of traveling) and what to visit while you're in the great city of Atlanta, I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you real quick. Don't go telling everyone now, I'd rather not have to wait in line or anything!
*Parrish Food & Goods. New Orleans inspired, southern food. Fresh and delicious. We ate there on Christmas Eve, and my fried chicken, grits and beans were to-die-for good. Plus the decor is beautiful and cozy!
*Tin Lizzies - I'm totally obsessed with Mexican food, and this place has the best chips, guacamole, and cheese dip around. Plus lots of creative and delicious tacos and other "modern" Mexican fare.
*If you watched Top Chef, you know that 3 of this season's contestants were from Atlanta: Eli - Eno; Hector - Pure Vida; Kevin - Woodfire Grill.
*Like Thai food? Try Spoon. Trust me.
*I'm letting you in on a little secret here, so don't spread this one around too much (I enjoy ordering and eating in minutes) The perfect lunch spot, Eats has delectable Jerk Chicken, Turkey meatloaf, vegetables, pasta and more. And large portions at small prices. What more could you ask for?
Things to do in Atlanta:
*The Georgia aquarium is offering Americasmart guests 10% off admission. Visit here for more info.
*Want to walk around, enjoy the frigid weather? Me neither, but just in case: Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Atlantic Station.
*Check out a Thrashers game or a Hawks game.
*And if you're obsessed with Diet Coke, like I might be, you can always visit the World of Coke.
I could keep going with activity ideas, but I know how exhausting shows can be, and I'll be impressed if you do anything besides eat and sleep on your off time.
Happy shopping my friends. Oh and thanks for visiting, we're looking forward to seeing some of you in our showroom soon!
