EDITOR’S CORNER – NOVEMBER / DECEMBER 2018

As you drive around Buckhead, amid all of the construction equipment knocking old things down and putting new things up, it’s getting harder and harder to find hints of the area’s past. So it seemed like a worthwhile endeavor to devote this issue’s cover story to how things used to be.

I admit I didn’t know much about the area’s history before signing on as the editor […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – OCTOBER 2018

I vividly remember my first concert. I’m vague on the year and exactly how old I was at the time, but I recall the show itself.

It was back in the ’70s and involved the legendary Michael Jackson and his brothers performing at the old Texas Stadium in Dallas. From our cheapest-we-could get nosebleed seats, Michael was a mere speck dancing around the stage, but even from […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – SEPTEMBER 2018

When I initially started brainstorming ideas for this issue’s cover story, which was deemed “The Men’s Issue,” I couldn’t think of a better way to exemplify that theme than to share the stories of some of the notable and interesting gentlemen who make up our readership.

A few immediately came to mind, such as Alex Page, the luxury marketing manager for Harry Norman Realtors. I’ve run into […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – JULY / AUGUST 2018

As Dorothy famously said in The Wizard of Oz, there’s no place like home—which is why so many of us go to such lengths to make it comfortable, or chic, or cluttered with all of our favorite things, as the case may be.

Whenever I meet someone new and interesting these days, it’s inevitable that I’ll end up asking them, “Do you live or work in Buckhead, […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – JUNE 2018

As Dorothy famously said in The Wizard of Oz, there’s no place like home—which is why so many of us go to such lengths to make it comfortable, or chic, or cluttered with all of our favorite things, as the case may be.

Of course, the Buckhead area has more than its fair share of breathtaking homes. Just drive down any of its streets and you’ll see […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – MAY 2018

Food, glorious food. That’s the subject of our cover story this issue, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I mean, who wouldn’t be? Our intrepid writer Jennifer Bradley Franklin has bravely scoured the local dining (and drinking) scene to report on everything from Buckhead’s best brunches to the perfect places for patio dining. She’s uncovered secret off-menu dishes, such as the luscious Lobster Mac at one of […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – MARCH / APRIL 2018

I hate to date myself, but the most high-tech piece of equipment I used at my first official office job was a non-correcting typewriter. (Goodness knows how many bottles of Wite-Out I went through back in the day!)

Our copier didn’t have a collating feature, we filed endless copies of paper documents and a receptionist actually answered phones and transferred incoming calls. My desk was one of […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – JANUARY / FEBRUARY 2018

Atlanta is a great place to be. In fact, it was recently named the eighth hippest city in the country in a nationwide poll.

But sometimes you need to get away and explore what the rest of the world has to offer. And that means travel, which is the theme of this issue’s cover story.

This particular topic is near and dear to my heart. You might even […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – NOVEMBER / DECEMBER 2017

I only know how to cook two things: lasagna and cheesecake. When I do go to the trouble to make them, they’re darn good, but the rest of my efforts in the kitchen could best be described as haphazard.

After sharing a meal I’ve made, I’ve had people politely say things such as “Nice try” and “That was interesting.” It doesn’t hurt my feelings necessarily (we each […]

EDITOR’S CORNER – OCTOBER 2017

Groucho Marx once famously said, “I don’t want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member.”

Marx apparently never visited any of Buckhead’s private clubs, which are the subject of our cover story this issue. These venerable members-only institutions, the oldest of which dates back to 1883, have long been hallowed gathering places for Atlanta’s movers and shakers. Today, membership in […]
