Atlanta Workforce Development Agency to Re-Brand

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

In the wake of a federal and internal investigation of Atlanta Workforce Development Agency's improper spending practices, there is a new director tasked with picking up the pieces. A city auditor called the organization beyond repair, but Michael Sterling has a plan to re-brand the agency and return its good name. Part of this re-branding will include a logo design contest open to college students and recent college graduates. The winner will receive $1,000 and recognition from Mayor Kasim Reed.

New Mexican Restaurant at Krog Street Market

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

The owner of the popular Alpharetta restaurant The El Felix is at it again, this time at Krog Street. Ford Fry has opened Superica in the Inman Park/Old Fourth Ward and looks to expand the menu and entertainment. Saturday and Sunday will offer a Mexican brunch, and live bands will play Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Chef Sheldon Wolfe will run the kitchen.

Fry is looking to emulate his favorite spots in Austin, Texas that combine a flavorful menu, a laid-back and lighthearted atmosphere, and local musicians. "There's a little humor in there, there's a little funkiness," Fry described the decor. "There's also some refinement."

Delta Gives $1 Million to Zoo Atlanta

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

The Delta Air Lines foundation announced a $1 million gift to Zoo Atlanta. The money will be used for the zoo's planned expansion and to renoate the Cyclorama. The Zoo plans to take over the Cyclorama building and the land it sits on, and the famous 'Battle of Atlanta' painting will be moved to the Atlanta History Center in Buckhead.

The Zoo estimates the full cost of it's projects to be $40 million. Thanks to a generous matching gift offer from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, only $20 million needs to be raised. Delta's gift is a great start towards that goal.

City of Atlanta Launches Warrant Amnesty Program

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

Do you have an outstanding warrant or a delinquent traffic violation? Well, you're in luck! The City of Atlanta has launched a new warrant amnesty program which will offer those who face arrest and other penalties due to overdue traffic violations, city ordinances, or other misdemeanors the chance to clear up those violations without additional court penalties. The contempt fees for past failure to appear will be waived and the warrant will be canceled.

Chief Judge Herman Sloan said "We are pleased to extend an opportunity for individuals who previously failed to appear at a scheduled court appearance to come forward and resolve their case while saving money and avoiding arrest inthe process."

The program is temporary and will last through Friday, March 27th. So don't delay! For more information about eligibility go to court.atlanta.gov.

Hi-Five Diner is now open in the former location of Villains in Midtown. The diner will serve eggs, pancakes, burgers, sandwiches, fried green tomatoes, and an all-you-can-eat cereal bar. There is also an espresso counter and a full bar.

Alex Brounstein, owner of Grindhouse Killer Burgers, opened Villains in 2013, but closed the sandwich shop and bar in December to make way for the Hi-Five concept.

Is Atlanta's Airport the World's Busiest?

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

In 2014, Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport recorded 96.2 million passengers, making them the world's busiest airport...according to them. Atlanta's claim to the "world's busiest airport" title comes just two weeks after Chicago's O'Hare International boasted the same, saying it had knocked Atlanta out of the No.1 spot. This is because O'Hare has more flights, but Hartsfield-Jackson sees more people come through. So who do you think should take the crown?
