Well, hello there!

This little gem is the first issue of Midtown Lifestyle magazine.

Our lifestyle gurus have carefully chosen you to receive the magazine every month knowing you like to shop locally, dine nearby, support businesses in the neighborhood and will be interested in reading about people in our community who live and work here too.  Our editor (that’s me) and publisher live intown Atlanta and are embarking on this print journalism journey together because we honestly believe we live in the most amazing area in Atlanta. Right?

Just look through these pages and you’ll see news about developments going vertical (the 4.5- acre Opus Place), updates on our favorite spots and tasty stories from loyal people like the wildly successful Hugh Acheson who chose Midtown as his Atlanta outpost and Tom Murphy, our mayor of Virginia-Highland. In every issue (which will arrive in your mailbox by the first of the month and available as a digital subscription) we’ll bring you events in our calendar, news in Around Town and features that reaffirm you’re living in the right community.

This magazine is about YOU and I hope we can dialogue through our social media and email.  If you know of a budding business, engaging educator, compelling collector, fab family or little-known local attraction, please DO TELL.

Thanks for being an important part of our journey!

Sue G. Collins
