we recently tried an alvarinho wine, which is the portuguese equivalent of an albariño. we had a bottle of 2006 alvarinho dorado superior by quinta do feital. the color was a little more golden than the other albariño wines we’ve had, but it was quite tasty! we enjoyed it with some chilled steamed shrimp!

it’s that time of year again! today is the first day of autumn and by now most breweries have released their fall lineup of seasonal beers, including pumpkin ales. i recently tried punkin ale from dogfish head craft brewery ales out of milton, delaware. it’s a great full-bodied brown ale with a mild pumpkin flavor. sometimes the spices in pumpkin ales can be overwhelming, but this one is well balanced and perfect for fall weather. if you are looking for a new seasonal beer to drink during cooler times then definitely consider punkin ale.

here’s a video i did awhile ago that is still a favorite of mine. it was shot looking out of a car on a rainy day. you can find other videos and higher resolution versions on our youtube page as well.
i’ve been doing some work this week at the georgia convention center, which i had never been to before. there are these crazy space-age, giant pillars along the entrance to the grounds. it was much more grand than i expected.
i took these photos with my new phone. i’ve been super impressed with the picture quality, although i haven’t printed any photos yet.
i recently worked in the w hotel in downtown atlanta and got to see an amazing sunset from the 27th floor. i had never seen one from such great heights, especially over a downtown setting. i took some photos with my new phone and they look awesome! it shoots super wide photos, so be sure to check out the larger versions.
what started out as a goal to write a blog post every day for a month quickly turned into an entire month without any posts. well, we hope to get back into the swing of things with regular updates and postings.
i enjoy all the graffiti and murals found along dekalb avenue and that part of town and recently saw some new (at least new to me) artwork on the building next to eyedrum. there are obviously different artists and styles working together there. i was told the building is split into various artist spaces, some of whom probably worked on the wall art… way better than the beige blotches the neighborhood associations make when covering up graffiti & art.
i am diametrically opposed to the beige blotches.
