This Week in Atlanta

This week is a busy one here in Atlanta.  To start the week off, the local conviviums of Slow Food USA are holding Eat-Ins for the National Day of Action to get Real Food in Our Schools. There are a number of these going on around the area tomorrow.  There are several Beltline 101 sessions going on.  So, if you are living in or plan to live in an area where the Beltline will go through, you have an opportunity to give your input.  There are several networking events this week and we have the Atlanta Arts Festival this weekend.  Try to get out and take part in something this week.  I am planning on attending the Sierra Club Metro Atlanta Chapter meeting on Tuesday.
