BEST SPOTS: Halloween Pop-Up Shops

BEST SPOTS: Halloween Pop-Up Shops

ATLANTA – Halloween pop-up shops, the first sign of excessive candy consumption, tons of food and some of our favorite clichés. And as it stands, ‘tis the season that niche' business owners hawk goblins, gouls and costumes that look similar to some of our favorite celebrities at stores in and around Atlanta.

Pop-up shops, with their intense decorations and marquees, aren’t a nuisance as much as they’re a wonder; they provide us with an outlet, yearly and almost on cue, to outfit ourselves fabulously for parties and the likes.

Another Broken Egg Cafe Hatches in Buckhead

Another Broken Egg Cafe Hatches in Buckhead

The first Georgia franchise for Another Broken Egg Cafe recently opened in the Peachtree Battle Shopping Center, which is located in the 2300 block of Peachtree Road. With over 140 different menu items, the restaurant has quickly become Atlanta's newest hotspot for breakfast, lunch or brunch. It is open daily from 7 a.m.-2 p.m.

Many Atlantans who vacation in Destin, Fla., are familiar with the restaurant concept. That's one of the reasons owners Dana and Mignon Percival, along with their children, Drew and Sara, decided to set up shop in Atlanta.

Despite the economy, many people still eat out. According to the National Restaurant Association, Americans spend about 49 percent of their food dollar on food away from home.

A "Living Social" survey found that the average American eats 4.8 meals per week in restaurants. The most popular meal is lunch.

Atlantans also are famous for eating out.

Atlanta to vote on Sunday sales in November

Atlanta to vote on Sunday sales in November

ATLANTA -- Atlanta voters will decide on Nov. 8 whether retailers in the city should be allowed to sell beer, wine and distilled spirits on Sundays.

The Georgia Legislature voted this year to give communities the option of allowing Sunday sales. Many cities and counties around the state have scheduled votes on the issue.

The Atlanta City Council voted Monday to authorize Mayor Kasim Reed to enter into a contract with Fulton County to conduct the tally.

Atlanta voters also will vote that day on a school tax extension and to fill a vacancy on the school board.

The city agreed to pay the county up to $17,050 to run the election.

Mayor Reed named among most influential African Americans in 2011

ATLANTA -- An online magazine has named Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed the tenth most influential African-American of 2011.

"The Root" placed Reed ahead of big names like Beyonce, Kanye West and LeBron James.

Among reasons cited for Reed's ranking, the magazine said "the Howard University graduate and ex-campaign manager for former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin hired 200 additional police officers and convinced Porsche to stay in the Atlanta metro area. In addition, Reed has proved to be a key advocate for the Obama administration and is looked to as a means of swinging votes in 2012."

Other notable Atlantans on the list include Tyler Perry, Rev. Raphael Warnock of Ebenezer Baptist Church, and CNN anchor Don Lemon.
