Why-We-Love-Working-And-Playing-In-Atlanta

Atlanta is the cultural and economic center of the southeast. Edgeware employees love living and working in Atlanta because we know the amazing opportunities that abound in this charming southern city.

We won’t be cliche and talk about The Varsity being a must eat dining experience or tell you that traffic isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be (because it’s just as soul crushing as anyone has ever described).

Instead, we’re going to note some of our favorite events and places in the The-A that we think make Atlanta such an incredible place to live and work.

Shaky Knees Festival
Atlanta plays host to some of the coolest music festivals in the south and it’s just one of the many things that makes this city so special. You haven’t really experienced life in Atlanta until you’ve gone to an annual festival like Shaky Knees which just happens to be taking place this weekend (May 13-15).  The festival is a music-lover’s dream, featuring 5 stages with more than 75 bands each year.

Hands On Atlanta
If you’re looking for a way to get more involved, Hands On Atlanta is a volunteer organization that helps individuals, families, and corporate groups give back to the community. Through Hands On Atlanta, you can find ways to use your time and skills to keep Atlanta a fun, vibrant, beautiful place to live, work, and play. We’re not called the “city in a forest” for nothing, we do our best to take care of the world around us one tree (and one person) at a time.

The Porter Beer Bar
After a long, hard day at work, or an eventful day of volunteer work, stop in at The Porter Beer Bar in Little Five Points and take your pick from over 800 beers. The Porter Beer Bar also offers special events like beer tastings, classes, festivals, and themed dinners. The bar has earned such awards as “Best Beer Haunt” and “Best Bar Food” since opening in 2008.

High Museum of Art
The High Museum of Art is the leading art museum in the southeast and it’s located right here in Atlanta’s Midtown.  There’s always something happening at The High from contemporary exhibitions to family art programs to permanent art collections that you can browse year-round. The High Museum of Art Block Party is coming up on May 22nd and is a great opportunity to check out Eric Carle’s exhibition and grab some tasty grub from a local food truck.

Atlanta Tech Village
It’s easy to see that tech is booming in Atlanta. In fact, there’s an entire space dedicated to blossoming startups and consultants, Atlanta Tech Village. If the music festivals, dining & drinks, or art culture haven’t convinced you that Atlanta is the place to work and play yet, this just might do it. If you’re in need of a space to get your business going, Atlanta’s got you covered.

Wrap Up

We could go on for hours about why we love living and working here. The people are friendly, the food (and beer!) is great, and there’s never a shortage of anything to do. Atlanta has something for everyone whether you’re a college student on summer break or a young entrepreneur looking to launch your big business idea.

Edgeware is proud to call Atlanta home and we plan to call it home for a long time.
