Roaring Into 2020
Welcome to a new decade and cheers to roaring into 2020 in good health and prosperity. We've been pouring through the year-end wraps and new year forecasts. And with 2019 in the rear view, we're looking ahead to this new year with 20/20 vision! Food 52 shared its best and worst food trends from the last decade. Can you guess where Avocado Toast falls? Forecasting into the next decade, US Foods, among others, sets Afro Caribbean cuisine atop its list of food trends. So, it should come as no surprise that our fave West Midtown Afro Caribbean eatery, Rock Steady is among The Atlantan's new and noteworthy. The Atlanta Business Chronicle listed ASH Ventures' purchase of long-time resto Horseradish Grill on the list of its most popular retail and restaurant stories. Stay tuned for more news about plans to modernize this Atlanta classic in 2020. Eater shares a great list of ones to look forward to in 2020. And if you need to detox from it all, goop has its annual guide to get your year started on a healthy note. And while we're talking wellness, StyleBlueprint shared its 2020 trends for health and beauty. Check out our gal pal Annette Joseph's style workshops in Italy! Morning Brew penned this list of business trends from the last decade. And the New York Times shared its cultural trends of the past 10 years as well. Yes - there was a world before the selfie duck face! Speaking of pictures, the New York Times' decade of them is breathtaking. Of course you can't say photography with out mentioning National Geographic, whose photo essay of the past decade is - of course - amazing. We enjoyed Curbed's year of news in Atlanta, if for no other reason than to be reminded of the Garda armored truck door flinging open and sending $175k flying over Ashford-Dunwoody Road last summer. The AJC explored the best concerts of the year. And Atlanta Magazine shared highlights of the past decade of our multi-billion dollar film industry. We were sad to read in the AJC that 2019 brought the closing of The Star Bar in Little 5. Crushed that WonderRoot shuttered. And devastated to hear that Rep. John Lewis is fighting Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. He remains our inspiration in this and all fights that he's taken on with strength, grace and dignity. And we close with a big thank you to Atlanta Magazine for listing us among so many greats in the Atlanta 500. We are humbled!
