Boozestorming in The ATL!

Boozestorming ATL is a laid-back forum that connects great thinkers in Atlanta to brainstorm collectively about our city. Whether it’s how to better connect all of our unique neighborhoods, the impact of the Beltline, or the magic solution for Atlanta’s traffic, we’d love to hear about your ideas and questions. Boozestorming in The ATL takes place on a quarterly basis. Drinking and thinking as never so much fun!

You know that friend that you go-to when you want to try something new and want a partner in crime? That’s Sonia. She works at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and in her spare time loves all things community development, outdoors, cooking and books (and yes, cookbooks, since it knocks out half of those). She’s a recent transplant to Atlanta and is busy soaking up all of the great things that the city has going on.

Who: We gathered together 10 Atlantans, Almost all who lived within the city but from a range of neighborhoods around town. Our group had a nice range of professions, ranging from public health, software development, to marketing. In the future, we’d love to keep this diversity in the group. Where: We met at Foster ATL, a co-working space in Old 4th Ward. Old 4th Ward is a hub of change and development in Atlanta, and this was a great location to kick off discussions about the city. The topics:   We each came up with 1-2 topics and posted them on a wall to have an at a glance version of what was on everyone’s minds. Then, we chose 3 topics at random to discuss: What options are there for vegetarians in Atlanta? Places to dance in Atlanta that are fun and different ITP versus OTP: the age old question of bridging the city and the suburbs What we drank (and ate!): Hot Toddies Red wine Local craft beer Guacamole Snickerdoodles What we talked about: The group gravitated towards more serious... read more
