News

Unfortunately the Wrecking Bar Brewpub is closed today, so their usual vegetarian Tuesday menu won’t be served. Rumor has it there’s a movie being filmed there.

Correction: On Sunday I incorrectly stated that the Atlanta History Center was closing, what I had intended to type was that the Atlanta History Center’s latest exhibit was closing. Whoops.
