NFT Atlanta Lenox

Lenox

Lenox. It is what it is. Posh hotels line the streets. Fancy malls dot the main intersection. High-rise condos pull in giant SUVs and imports fast enough to fill any parking deck in mere seconds. If you don’t feel like you have to vomit after hearing all of that, then you have made a lot of money.




         



On Our Radar:

Green's Beverage Store
Green's on Buford Highway is everything that Green's on Ponce is not. At Buford, you don't have to put up with a hundred hipsters knocking your elbows while trying to access the IPAs and, more importantly, there's always an available parking spot--even on Saturday evening when the entire population of our god-fearing city curses its backward ways and makes a mad dash to get beer before the clock strikes Sunday. What's more, Buford's stock (give or take a few labels) is virtually the same as the Poncey-Highland hotspot, even without the nifty Belgian-brew walk-in. A word of warning about shopping Green's on Buford. The entrance/exit is freakishly dangerous, especially when leaving the joint or if you are approaching from the north. Blink and you've missed it, dilly-dally on your way out and you're likely to get pounded by oncoming traffic.

New York Prime
How would you like a fabulous steakhouse with a dining room that always delivers great food and impeccable service, plus a lively bar scene where you can quickly become an in-crowd regular? If you answered yes to all these questions, then New York Prime is the place for you. Friday nights are a hit with those who like the sumptuous wood-paneled bar (full menu service is available), the dining room offers the perfect venue for both business dinners and cozy dates, and GM Bobby Donlan makes sure that every guest is satisfied. Try the lump crab meat appetizer if you’re up for a tasty seafood treat, and make sure to order your steak just the way you like it—NYP aims to please. Bartenders extraordinaire Steve, Juliette, and Paulie will take great care of you; the valet service is in a class by itself, and after you’ve been once or twice . . . you might just find yourself in a New York state of mind!

Situated directly off 285 (Exit 32), this bowling alley is worth the drive. They’ve got great deals ($8 “all-you-can-bowl” 11 pm-2 am Mon and Wed; $10 cover w/ free pool/beer on Tue 6 pm to 10 pm) and I was surprised by how much stuff you can actually do there. International has a pool hall, an arcade with Dance Dance Revolution, bowling alleys, and karaoke. The karaoke is by far my favorite part of any trip out there. The karaoke systems are set up in rooms where a group of people can hang out and sing with their friends, without broadcasting a serenade to the entire complex. Considering I can’t carry a tune, this type of karaoke makes an ideal evening. The International is pretty much made to cater to short attention spans, with plenty of people-watching opportunities on the weekends, when the area becomes crowded with the masses too smart to waste their money at Dave ‘N Busters. There is snack food available; hot wings and fries, for instance, as well as ramen and fried rice. There is free parking and, since the beer is cheap and plentiful, designating a sober driver beforehand is an excellent idea.
