Days of Future Passed

by Bret Love | Jezebel magazine | June 1, 2011

If you’d asked me 15 years ago what the hottest musical trend in Atlanta would be circa 2011, I’d have guessed block-rockin’ techno, forward-thinking hip-hop or some other futuristic musical form that hadn’t been invented yet. Never would I have guessed that the ATL’s current live music scene would be riddled with bands whose primary influences were in their prime before my parents were even born.

Hitting the Barre

Seventies fashions—think bellbottoms, floppy hats and platforms—are back en vogue once again, so is it any surprise that an exercise from the 1970s is regaining popularity, too? Back then, women from New York to Hollywood were toning and tightening their bodies with barre workouts, following the teachings of the Lotte Berk Method, named for the German ballerina who originally developed the technique to treat her injured back.

Something to Look Forward to (Expected opening—Early August):
5 Napkin Burger

990 Piedmont Ave., 5napkinburger.com
We know what you’re thinking. The last thing Atlanta needs is another burger joint. We’ve got
our Richard Blais, our Grindhouse and, at 10pm, a lucky few even have our beloved Holeman &

Westside Story

by Chelsea Greenwood | Jezebel magazine | June 1, 2011

Brimming with myriad home interiors stores as well as fashion boutiques, restaurants and
offices, Westside Urban Market stays true to its industrial roots via exposed duct and brick
work, plus plenty of concrete and modern touches that, altogether, convey a very of-the-moment
aesthetic. But the complex can be a bit labyrinthine at times—it wasn’t originally designed for

Best for “Last”

by Chris Kelly | Houston magazine | June 1, 2011
It’s a balmy afternoon in May and the birth mother of Houston’s eclectic and edgy live music scene, Dawn Fudge, is tending to the lush plants that flourish in the expansive courtyard of her legendary Last Concert Café (1403 Nance St., 713.226.8563), where Tex-Mex is served up Monday-Sunday, along with two live bands per night. A whopping 14 live performances each week.

Pushing the Envelope

by Tiffany Tse | Modern Luxury Orange County magazine | June 1, 2011
South Coast Repertory has built a solid reputation for developing original plays, but, now, the Costa Mesa theater company is giving Orange County a fresh outlook on the arts. As part of a pilot program called the Studio Series, SCR has invited local performance companies to take the stage at its intimate 94-seat Nicholas Studio. The lineup, which runs through June, showcases spoken word, burlesque and dance pieces designed to push artistic boundaries and expose O.C. audiences to the community’s diverse underground arts scene.

For Grant DePorter, a lifelong Cubs fan who grew up in the hospitality business, running Harry Caray’s Restaurant Group has been an incredibly rewarding gig. But the Winnetka resident—who has been Harry Caray’s CEO for more than 20 years—is now overseeing more than just his restaurant empire.
