After being entirely destroyed in the American Civil War, Atlanta literally rose from the ashes to become the unofficial capital of the “New South.” Now the 9th largest metropolitan area in the US, the city is a thriving economic and cultural hub.

Tassilis Raw Reality

“Tassili’s Raw Reality in the West End is one those places where if you know, you KNOW. It’s a vegan and mostly raw food restaurant that got famous from their HUGE and delicious kale wraps stuffed to brim with veggies and couscous. The Punany wrap is legendary, beloved by meat and plant based eaters alike, and the lines going out the door are a pretty good indicator of how much of a staple this restaurant is to local foodies.”

Tabernacle

“My favorite venue is the Definitely the Tabernacle. It’s an old church in downtown Atlanta that was converted into a music venue. It has stained glass windows, murals on the ceiling, and artistic detailing in every inch of the space. I’ve seen some incredible shows there, but the most memorable was probably Dave Chappelle when he filmed his Netflix special, Sticks and Stones, and D’angelo’s Black Messiah tour.”

Cascade Family Skating

“Whenever I have friends or family in town, we go to Cascade Family Skating. Roller skating culture is still alive and well in Atlanta and their adult skate nights are soooo fun. You can catch skating crews doing dope routines, see couples gliding on the floor in their matching outfits, and even take a break to learn some choreography in the middle of the rink. The music is always really good, especially on Wednesday nights when they play 90s Hiphop and R&B.”

I have to admit, I’m very new to record buying. The first record store I went to start my collection was Fantasyland Records in Buckhead. They have a huge collection of every genre you can think of, and the owners were really helpful for a newbie to record collecting! It’s also been in Atlanta since 1976 which is really cool.
