Local Escape

With the chaos of studio week about, I’ve been pining for outlets to get some fresh air and fresh perspective on things.  West Egg Cafe’s Red Eye coffee has given me a boost lately, though why oh why do they have to close at four pm?

One of my favorite stress release spots that doesn’t involve caffiene is the Peachtree Dekalb Airport.  Sit, swing, watch.  It’s supposdely the nation’s busiest private airport, but it’s small enough to feel intamite.  They have a lovely little playground where you can swing or play on airplane-themed structures, but when the kids overtake them I often just find a bench and watch planes come and go as the sun sets. I guess I find it soothing, watching arrivals and departure of little planes and private jets, wondering who they are and where they are going…

There’s a cafe there also, but the patio often fills up – and thus pointless.  Instead stop at La Suprema bakery on Clairmont and Buford Highway, the backside of Plaza Fiesta.  It’s on the way, clean, cheap, and gringo-friendly.  Fresh bread, pastries, cakes, and flan are available, but I recommend their little fruit cups.  The airport is right around the corner on Clairmont, just look up…you’ll see the planes.

Anyway, a nice local escape….
