Retail Isn't Dying, But It Is An Exciting Time of Reinvention

If there's one constant in this world it's change. We feel for the buggy whip salesman who didn't get that memo. And as we watch the number of retailers tanking, it's clear that the brick-and-mortar industry of retail is in a major state of flux. Have we contributed to the demise of the likes of Sears, Charlotte Olympia, Roberto Cavalli, Michael Kors, Gymboree and Payless with the tap of an app? Absolutely, we own our part. And by the tap of an app, we mean Amazon, of course. In an interesting turn of events, the online retailer recently partnered with the brick-and-mortar chain, Kohl's in a deal that allows consumers to return unwanted Amazon goods to Kohl's stores.

Why Inman Park Is The Best Neighborhood In Atlanta

We love Inman Park, for its breathtaking architecture, rich history and - even throughout its incredible revitalization - ability to hang on to its freak factor. We've been based in Atlanta's first suburb and last-standing Victorian neighborhood for more than two decades. In that time, we've experienced the influx of fabulous restaurants, shops and residential development first hand. We've watched it build up while not being overbuilt, under the careful watch of its strong and sassy neighborhood association. Inman Park was developed in the late 1880s by Joel Hurt as the city's most prestigious neighborhood, with connectivity to downtown and his namesake Hurt Building via the city's first e

Nothing Can Be Certain Except Death & Taxes

Old Ben Franklin was quite prolific with his quotes, and if you survived Tax Day yesterday then you are all too familiar with this one: "...nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” I'm not an accountant, nor do I play one on TV. And I don't think I've ever stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. So I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on taxes. But sharing fun facts that can make you the star of your next cocktail party? This I can do. You're welcome. Did you know that France's salt tax was so offensive that it was a contributing factor to the French Revolution? Britain's salt tax gained worldwide attention when Gandhi staged nonviolent protests against it. Roman emperor

WOMEN IN THE NEWS You Won't Believe What She Said

Girl power was on this past Sunday when Reba McEntire hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards for the 16th time. When asked if she ever got tired of hosting, the fiery 53-year-old redhead replied: "I'm a woman in the music business and we don't have time for tired." She went on to point out that it snowed in Las Vegas in recent weeks before firing off: "It froze us women out of entertainer of the year." Maybe she was still fired up from "Equal Pay Day" last Tuesday, a date symbolizing how far into the new year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. She gave a shout out to Kacey Musgraves who had swept the Grammy's and was overlooked for entertainer of the year (Mu

FYRE FESTIVAL COMES TO ATLANTA

Happy Monday! We're excited to announce our newest client: Fyre Festival, a luxury music festival that will be sponsored by Pepsi and United Airlines. Sure, the first one got off to a bit of a rocky start. But we're reinventing this sophomore effort right here in the ATL. We're all about new beginnings, so we're setting to work to re-brand what was an Instagram-fueled fiasco, founded by Billy McFarland and Ja Rule. Atlanta is all about the phoenix rising from the ashes, right? To that end, we're going to turn a "bless-their-hearts" island disaster into a land-locked feel-good fete. In case you missed the 10 zillion articles that have been written about it, Fyre Festival started in 2017 as
