|Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Festival|
Here's what you do on Sunday:
First: New. York. Times. You can read it on your iPad. You can get the paper version. Paper version is better, but either will do. Pick up a copy at Alon's Bakery in Virginia Highland and get some coffee and almond croissants and raspberry cheese danishes to go. Head on back to your deck, spread out, and enjoy. If it doesn't take you at least two hours, you're not doing it right. This week, I got a new bouquet from my favorite florist, Candler Park Flower Mart. It's gonna keep me company while I read. It's part of my year long bouquet delivery. Read about it. ($ - $20)
|Order flowers for a year. Best money you ever spent, and great backdrop for reading the sunday paper.|
Second: Go check out some living walls. The living walls effort is trying to change the way we Atlantans see our public spaces. This big guy below certainly reaches that goal. You can find him on Mitchell Street downtown. The full map of murals is shown below. Go check 'em out. ($ - $Free).

Third: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! Get there around 1 and enjoy! ($ - $70 per person).
Fourth: Nap. 'Nuff said. Don't forget the perfect bed rules. ($ - $Free).
Finally: You ate tomatoes all afternoon. Let's try the opposite. What's the opposite of tomatoes? That's right! Ice cream. Head on over to Morelli's in Inman Park will hit the spot. Voted best ice cream in Atlanta by Creative Loafing, and 4th best in the country by Bon Appetit, Atlantans swear by, and so should you. ($ - $10 per person).
