Nearly New Fashions At The Wimbish House

The Junior League of Atlanta's Nearly New Shop’s mission is to continue as a viable cornerstone for raising funds for targeted community agencies; to provide the public with quality, used clothing and goods at reasonable prices; to increase the community awareness of the Junior League of Atlanta’s purpose; to instill in the Nearly New volunteers and membership a sense of shop ownership; and to provide flexible volunteer opportunities, camaraderie and leadership. They also gave quite a fashion show and party last Sunday at The Wimbish House. These are but a few favorites. More may be seen here.

In Fairlie-Poplar

Before visiting Europe, we played tourists in our own town. Every March The Atlanta Preservation Center sponsors architectural tours called The Phoenix Flies. Residents of landmarks like The Healey Building welcome visitors and share their enthusiasms for modern living in antique settings. Lucky are they who call this Neo-Gothic treasure home. Its Le French Quarter Café even affords us an authentic experience without leaving home.

Of Lunch And Dinner In Paris

Both 5e Cru and Au Grain de Folie are small restaurants, perhaps seven tables each. Their menus are limited and here they diverge. Lunch in the Quartier Latin wine shop was traditional fare: charcuterie and blood sausage, cauliflower soup and penne garnished with artichokes. Service is polished and professional, born of confidence in the quality of ingredients well presented. That evening in a Montmartre street that ends at a stair, romantic red candles set the mood for a quirky vegetarian spot more like home than a public dining room. Our hostess was a solo act. When dinner finally came, Leigh noticed a party of young East Londoners outside and remarked, "Those beefy guys want pizza." Without standing up, I opened the door (tiny place, indeed) to show off our dinners to the ladies. Sold! Their charming banter moved inside, doubling the crowd and the fun.
