The Battle of the Sexes seems to be a never-ending quest to determine which gender reigns supreme. However, wouldn’t it be better just to squash the argument all together and agree that men and women can both do things within and outside their sex well? Here’s hoping that the latest news to come out of Krog Street Market can widen the gap, on a local front at least. Of all the new tenants recently taking up shop at Krog, this batch is heavily dominated by women, which is a welcomed change from the more male-heavy businesses that find themselves regularly taking up retail space along Atlanta streets. If this trend continues, 2014 may very well be considered the “Year of the Woman,” in Atlanta at least. Read on to find out who these amazing women are and what they are bringing to Krog Street Market!

With the busy lives that pretty much everyone leads these days, it’s become increasingly common and easy not to make time for the things that really count. Cell phones make never-ending phone calls and text messages a regular occurrence at all times, as do tablets and other handheld devices. One of the places and times where full attention should be given to not only the surroundings and the company, but also the food, is during a meal and one local Atlanta initiative is set to do something about it. Slow Food Atlanta has launched a local campaign to encourage people to slow down and enjoy their meal and their company without any distractions or interruptions. Find out more about the organization and how you can participate by “slowing down” for a meal!
