Whether you spent your holiday lounging by the pool, or exploring the city, a mid-week holiday can throw us all off a little. With that being said, the summer is far from over and there are still plenty of things to keep your mind off the post-holidays blues.
If you are recovering from the Peachtree Road Race, there is no better way to recoup than with a Dtox Juice found in three convenient locations; Piedmont park, Westside and Chastain Park . Not only is this Gwyneth Paltrow’s No.1 stop for juice when in Atlanta, it is ours, as well. Owners Karen and Jenny hold the highest standards for their ingredients. They have forged relationships with companies that hold the same values as theirs, and continue to work to create interesting and innovative flavors and products.
Now, if you’re needing something a little stiffer, don’t forget about our favorite pop up cocktail party. From now until September, Atlanta Botanical Gardens will be hosting Cocktails in the Garden. Adults will embrace their inner child as they explore the curious garden with an interactive play area, complete with splash fountain, cargo nets and rope bridges. Once you have had your fill of the play area, drop a king of pops into your hand-crafted cocktail and sit back and enjoy the music from Amp’d Entertainment.
Finally, if all you need is a little culture, don’t miss out on one of the most highly anticipated exhibits to make it to The High. Andy Warhol’s 250 print collection is a masterpiece, that encompasses 4 decades of work. This legacy from the founder of Pop Art still resonates with audiences today. His ability to harness popular culture and turn it into art, that has remained culturally relevant, shows his level of imagination and creativity.
