PARTY ON PEACHTREE?
|Midtown boosters like Jamestown are working hard to get permission to shut down Peachtree from 5th to 10th for two days in September. Why? For the inaugural Midtown Festival of the Arts.|
|Yesterday we snapped lots of cars on Peachtree between 9th and 10th, which won't be invited to the party if Jamestown, owner of 999 Peachtree, and other sponsors like Audi, Loews Hotel, Margaret Mitchell House, Fifth Group Restaurants, Emory Healthcare, and Georgia Power have anything to say about it. Organizers are hopeful a letter-writing campaign (remember what Macy?s did with its ?Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus?) will help persuade city officials to sign off on a permit allowing the party. Jackson Spalding tells us 100% of Peachtree businesses between 5th and 10th signed letters of support. More info.|
