We Love You Atlanta!

Via Garden & Gun Blog
I've heard Garden & Gun referred to as the lifestyle magazine for the nonexistent South, but past the ads for $100,000 shotguns and equestrian wear is terrific content.

Reminded of this with today's shout out post about Atlanta.  Grab the October issue, packed with Inman Park places and personalities, and give the ATL a high five.
