Local blogger teaches others how to Video Blog

BEST SPOTS: Cheap Brews

ATLANTA – Whether it’s after a hard day of work or at the beginning of a long night of partying, everyone loves a cheap brew. Around Atlanta there are plenty of places to get a cold, cheap pilsner full-o-ale however, the Where U Live has compiled a list of the places we think you would like.

Put a quarter in the old jukebox and relax at the, refurbished, Ponce de Leon mainstay dive restaurant. The Local also offers cheap pitchers and amazing wings. The restaurant has fourteen beers on tap, including: Hoegaarden, Pabsts Blue Ribbon, Fat Tire and Loose Cannon. All beers are served in pint glasses, the cheapest being their PBR for $2.75; they, also, offer bottles of Miller Highlife for $2.50. The Local is located at 758 Ponce De Leon Avenue in Atlanta.

It has one of the better patios in the Atlanta area and it only holds about ten people. Popular Virginia Highland tavern, Moe’s and Joe’s offers the cheapest beer around.

ARROJO Expo to bring style to Atlanta

ATLANTA -- Last year, celebrity hair stylist Nick Arrojo launched his first-ever flagship salon in Marietta.

Now he's returning to Atlanta for a two-day hair expo that will bring together styling professionals from across the country.

ARROJO Expo will be held Sunday, Oct. 9 and Monday, Oct. 10 at the Variety Playhouse in Little Five Points and will create an opportunity for Atlanta stylists to share in a world of advanced education and fresh approaches to precision-based hairstyling.

The inaugural ARROJO Expo was held in New York City in January, and organizers are confident that Atlanta's event will be even better.

"Atlanta is going to be a game-changing show," Nick Arrojo said in a statement.
