Decatur High Band Fundraiser Event and the Return of Decatur Idol!

Lew writes in…

1. The DHS Band is kicking off our “Hope for Harmony” fundraising campaign called “Drum Dreams and Uniform Seams”, with a free party this Friday, April 20, 7 PM, at 1976 Azalea Circle, Decatur, GA 30033. The event is catered by Zest Atlanta, and is following up on last year’s successful “Tuba Quest”. We’re raising funds for new instruments (including baritones, bass clarinets, and percussion equipment), uniforms, instruction, and scholarships which will support the musical education of all our youth. Everyone is welcome, and we hope you will come with a willingness to donate or make a pledge to support the band.

2. Decatur Idol will be held Friday April 27th at 7 PM in the DHS Auditorium. Kids will be competing for the coveted title, as well as prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Admission is $5 for students and $10 for adults. There will also be a special performance by two local favorites: SWAMP and Dr. Electric.

More Details on Mexican Restaurant Replacing Decatur Diner

Of course, Tomorrow’s News Today has the scoop…

Mike Brosius, who many in Atlanta will know as the man behind multiple successful linen businesses, is getting back into the restaurant business. Brosius, who in 1992 started Omni Linen, later sold it and started Blockbuster Linen which he in turn sold and started Go! Hospitality which he in turn sold, which he sold this past fall. As the name Go! Hospitality suggests, the business caters to the hospitality industry. Clearly Brosius has a knack for the linen business, but he and his wife Lauri also opened a total of four Cinco Mexican Cantina eateries before selling them. All four of the Cinco eateries were rather far out in locales such as Alpharetta, Cumming, Suwanee and in Smyrna at Akers Mill.
