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.

Amazing Websites - Atlas Obscura

Former Slate editor David Plotz is at the helm of my current favorite destination on the Web.  Atlas Obscura is packed with the cool, idiosyncratic places that make for the idea road trip.  Pop in your zip code for crazy discoveries in your back yard or load up on freakness for your next trip out of town!
