  1. I’m curious about an odd thing on the sidewalk at the Dairy Queen building (Arlo? Alexan?). Near the turnoff from Trinity onto East Howard, there is a set of stairs leading up to…nowhere. It has a railing at the top, preventing one from actually using the stairs to go up. What gives?

    1. They built the staircases before they raised the street based only on the engineering specs. When the street was done, the alignment was off so they’ve had to rebuild all the top steps to fix. I believe the two smaller stairs are now complete and reopened but the big one still needs more work. Then they’ll remove the bar.

      1. It’s great for practicing the little known but handy-in-a-pinch steeplechase, “death leap”.

  2. It is hoped that huge amount of feedback at the East Lake development proposal is taken into consideration and that people will be listened to instead of railroaded and run over. That the feedback will be incorporated into other design ideas around the area, like at Commerce & Clairemont!

  3. Peach State Opera will be having a fundraiser on Sunday, March 18 at Lawrenceville Road United Methodist Church located at 3142 Lawrenceville Hwy, Tucker, GA 30084 as part of the church’s “Music for Missions” programming. Peach State Opera is a touring company that shares the thrill of live opera with small communities in Georgia and its surrounding states by presenting exciting, portable, and abridged English-language productions. They have just completed their eighth season, which featured a production of Rossini’s Cinderella. PSO toured to six different venues this season including four repeat venues in Clarkston, Jonesboro, Brunswick, and Corbin in Kentucky. The Company is looking forward to their 2018–19 season of Puccini’s La Boheme, which kicks off in September.
    The program starts and ends with party choruses celebrating life, love, and champagne. Also featured are arias from Peach State Opera past productions and a hint of their next season’s La Boheme with Musetta’s aria, the well-loved “Quando m’en vo.”

    The five performers are also gifted recitalists that are actively involved in the Atlanta area. The Gershwin Songbook and Friends of the South portions include some of their favorite song literature. The program will also include brief narration of foreign language selections.
