Want to paint the town red some night?  Now you can.  Start your night at Mellow Mushroom by eating a cheese pizza (dough made with spring water), and a pitcher of Hoegaarden.  Go on Thursday night for free face painting, then pose for a photo with Mellow's new Transformer statue.  (NOTE: The stuffed animal claw machine is not as kid-friendly as during the Sugarman era.  The stuffed animals are them selves tightly stuffed).  Next, head to the back of Mellow Mushroom to the new Sherwin Williams paint store, then head across the street to Marlow's Tavern.The new paint store is beside Ace Hardware, a paint-seller itself.  I find the location odd, and probably

Peter's in Dunwoody is closed.  The hanging sign out on Chamblee Dunwoody Road is gone and the place is locked tight.  Apparently the rent rate was higher than budgeted for a dinner restaurant.Certain locations are tough for restaurants, and this seems to be one.  Once the home to High Cotton and even a Pizza Hut, the space appears to be vacant.  On the upside, more parking for Moe's, Subway, and of course Nina's Nails.  The parking in this shopping center is not great, especially in the corner by Moe's and the ice cream place.Carbonara in da Ville opened recently and may have had an impact on business at Peter's.  The osso buco here is pretty good, almost as g

The Georgia Supreme Court will soon announce their opinion on the law that was used to bounce Dr. Gene Walker and other DeKalb School Board members out of office.  DunwoodyTalk sources tell us the decision could come as soon as Monday. Imagine the chaos and strings attached should the Georgia Supreme Court side with voters and against legislators.  The chain of events to follow would be far-reaching and again put DeKalb School District in the spotlight.Before we get to that, a brief comment on the verdict against Pat and Tony and Crawford Lewis.  A case that was three years or so in the making was suddenly fast-tracked once Lewis decided to talk.  Some say Lewis, a

The Blaze Speaking at a local school board meeting earlier this month, a Tennessee high school senior issued a brief and incredibly insightful address on the problems with Common Core standards.Ethan Young, a student at Farragut High School in Knox County, Tenn., made his case as to why he believes the school district should drop the new national education standards, a set of guidelines that were never voted on by Congress, the Department of Education nor by local or state governments.“The president essentially bribed states into implementation via ‘Race to the Top,’ offering $4.35 billion taxpayer dollars to participating states, $500 million of which went to Tennessee,” Young sa

Originally posted Sept 18, 2013 Sprouts, a Farmers Market grocery store may be opening soon in Dunwoody.  The location is across from Kroger at Dunwoody Club Drive near Mt. Vernon (former home to an Ace Hardware).The Dunwoody location would be the first Sprouts in Georgia, and perhaps the first east of the Mississippi for the Arizona-based chain.Here's a story from the Atlanta Business Chronicle:http://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/print-edition/2012/10/19/sprouts-may-take-root-in-atlanta.html?page=allA call to their corporate HQ could not confirm, but one of DunwoodyTalk's cub reports questioned a worker recently at the site. Sprouts is like a Whole Foods and would draw shoppers from th
