Image titleOne of the greatest things about living on the Atlanta Beltline is having access to amazing activities and events right outside of your doorstep.   My top selling points of owning a home in one of these Intown neighborhoods is the mere fact that there is so much to get into without having to put one mile on your odometer.   Quite a few streets throughout the Beltline will offer much as far as eating, live music and festivals go but one in particular is my favorite by far.  Edgewood Ave is a cool street that intersects at Boulevard and provides lots of dining and afternoon/nightlife entertainment.  Whether it is 1 pm and you need a quick bite to eat for lunch or 1 am and you want to stumble into a live jazz session, Edgewood Ave has it all.   There are 3 really really good pizza places, Ammazza, Vesuvius and Edgewood Pizza aka Big Slice, that all offer a very different environment and menu selection but are equally as good in my opinion.  The Sound Table opens up at 7pm and there you can catch live music, dinner and drinks.  Their interesting menu features new and out of the ordinary items like octopus and kimchi or ceviche taquitos.  If you are in need of something family friendly, try taking a ride on the Atlanta Streetcar or hang out at the Sweet Auburn Spring Festival which takes place the second weekend in May.   This festival covers both Edgewood and Auburn Ave .   Sunday morning breakfasts are always great at the Original Thumbs UP Diner but be prepared for a wait and bring cash.  I always enjoy the Yukon Omlette,  a tasty one with has salmon, spinach and cream cheese filling.  They also offer daily specials like stuffed french toast and your basic breakfast menu items.   And last but certainly not least, we have the Municipal Market.  Commonly known as the Sweet Auburn Curb Market or Curb Market for short, it acts as a grocery store inside a world of food stands.   Produce, meats, seafood, baked goods and a holistic medicine cabinet are all available inside but then you have a Juice stand, Jamaican food, Mexican, BBQ, america dishes, gourmet popcorn and of course soul food.   This place use to be and still is the go to market for the residents in surrounding neighborhoods as well as nearby workers of hospitals, GSU and other downtown businesses.  Whenever I am there, my first stop is to get a smoothie from Rawsome Juicery and from there I either indulge in jerk chicken in plantains from the Afrodish or shrimp tacos from Bell Street Burritos.  If you find yourself downtown, don't hesitate to stroll Edgewood Ave and develop a few favorites of your own.   For more information on properties availavble in this area, check out my website at http://www.paulinebowman.ga.exprealty.com/areas/Edgewood or contact me directly at 678-682-1221 or [email protected]
