Georgia on my mind
sounds pretty tasty!
The Porter in Little 5 Points Atlanta is certainly known for its list of 500+ beers, but don’t ignore their cocktail menu or you’ll be missing out. This is one delicious quart of The Porter’s Ginger Lemonade, with housemade lemonade, ginger, and vodka.

This past Memorial Day inspired us to take a trip to the Oakland Cemetery to pay our respects and see a piece of Atlanta history. Turns out, we weren’t the only ones with that idea. Founded in 1850 as “Atlanta Cemetery,” it’s the oldest cemetery in Atlanta as well as one of the largest green spaces. Check out @OaklandCemetery for news and tour info.

Racy tombstones, the most popular graves in the cemetery, the many sections of Oakland Cemetery, and a little history.
"unknown Confederate dead"
"TWEET", A Mocking Bird. Died January 24, 1874 (note that the sculptor depicted Tweet as a sheep because he wasn’t able to do a bird).
And don’t forget, one of our guests, Sagan Lampe, has a blog of her own: http://pontoufmakeschocolate.blogspot.com/
The 4th of July is Elizabeth’s favorite holiday. Why? Fireworks, good food, summer, outdoor activities, and no requirements for dressing up or gifting obligations. Seriously, what else can compete? Nothing goes better with BBQ.
Therefore, as a special treat, we have a surprise short podcast, mostly poetry with some readings, music, and television quotes, all evoking the holiday and celebrating summer itself. Enjoy! Our regular post will be up on Wednesday.
For the 4th, listen or download here. Otherwise, look it up on itunes.
