Secret Crushes

so u know your girl is always on the grind for you :-) i love visiting new spots in the city and i had the great fortune to get an invitation from one of my favorite guy friends (hey Keith! :-)to check out one of the Hottest new spots in this magic city, The Museum Bar off Ralph Abernathy.

The Museum Bar has been getting much pub lately...they hosted Fantasia's listening party...the recent meet and greet with Tyler Perry's cast of his new show "For Better or Worse" premiering this month..and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the local r&b sensation Fillipia's show on Thanksgiving nite!

Ahhhhh....The Museum Bar.i am crushing on you! :-) all u have to do is login to their website and u too will be instantly transported to the smooth, sexxy ambiance that this awe-inspiring space delivers...and the sheer versatility delighted my event planning mind....from the moment u step up the stairs to the canopy and walk thru the heavy plate glass door..i was truly impressed with the gorgeous bars on every level..the main open air kitchen and brunch space...the 3rd floor huge patio with skyline views..and the main attraction downstairs is a full venue space for concerts, parties..and a nightclub style dance floor and of's own dedicated bar...

I had the great pleasure of speaking with one of the owners, Darrell Smith..he was such an interesting gentleman..and spoke of his inspiration for this bar to showcase his jaw dropping private collection of art work..and the desire to give the gorgeous people of atlanta a place to meet, greet, relax and kick back in a space inspired by the design aesthetic of the W hotel properties. And this starkly modern vibe in a 100 year old gothic church? genius!

Well Mr. Smith here's to u and the Museum Bar..ATLBROWNGIRL's new crush..and I hope soon to be yours too. Bon appetit!

U see I'm a southern girl and if your hushpuppies are not on point..well it will wreck your whole dining experience..but trust ur girl..pretty much everything on the menu is a solid choice..when u stop by tell the Manager Linda that atlbrowngirl sent u in! And make sure when the weather breaks u check out their gorgeous wrap around porch. there are plans to even offer crab boils in the can you resist a crab boil? :-0

As ur girl is always on the scene checking out the newest and hottest openings, they have just opened this week and are still fine-tuning the menu.

Feel the Burn Baby!

ok we have all noticed summertime is upon us...time to shed those jackets and drop it like its hot..erra i mean drop the heavy clothes because its

are u body ready? i never feel like i can exercise enough...the guilt of falling off the horse during the cold winter months always spurs me into action in the spring..

so that brings me to why i am up every morning at 5:30 and on the workout field with 10 other bootcampers doing the most insane workout in Atlanta...

on a given day we run 1/4 a mile..stop and do jumping jacks..lunges...pushups..situps..the plank and get up and run 1/4 a mile again..we may jump interval training..or run suicide drills up and across the workout field..for 45 mins to an hour...all before 7 am!

Believe me if it sounds is the most amazing fun..and the folks at Operation Boot Camp give u ur money's worth as they show up with 5-6 trainers everyday..the class is small with only usually no more than 10 participants so its like having ur own personal trainer..i feel eating habits are no longer as trashy as they once were (im still a foodie..i just make better choices now :-)and im begginning to fit into things i havent been able to ooze into since like..forever!

and by the way..DO NOT COME TO THE PROGRAM IF U DONT WANT TO the end of this workout u will be dripping wet..possibly covered in grass (its totally outdoors) and feeling so freakin' amazing that u will want to run instead of drive home :-)

trust ur girl..this is not getting a dime for this testimonial..i just thought I'd shout out the great folks at Operation Boot camp and give u the opportunity to check out one of the best workouts in atlanta..and they are conveniently located all over the city...sign up for a month and i promise u will be hooked...leave me a comment if u decide to check it out..i may be out there too!
