MODA a.k.a. the Museum of Design Atlanta is an up-and-coming placeholder in Atlanta’s cultural scene. This place is an institution in a city founded upon the principles of good design.
Shooting at a Gun Club There’s something about being a lady in the South that inspires me to carry a gun. Maybe it has something to do with “it’s the law in Kennesaw” but maybe every American civilian should be properly trained in how to use a gun. It’s part of our inherent rights as citizens of the United States.

The Four Seasons is one of the swankiest spots in the city. Nestled in the heart of Midtown it bathes itself in refinement offering five-star accommodations, fine dining, a terrific spa plus a bar that’s supposedly great for star sighting. Speaking of stars…. Drive-In movies maybe a thing of the past but here in Atlanta we still have one of the most famous spots. The Starlight Six Drive-In Theatre is such a cool spot it was even featured in the upcoming remake of “Footloose”. One day, we’ll host a Pretty Southern party at the drive-in that’s followed by a trip to the Clairmont Lounge to get up-close-and-personal with some of the most…interesting…exotic dancers in Atlanta. Even Lady Gaga has seen Blondie crush a beer can with her huge assets. And while we’re on the subject, anyone ever been to Southern Comfort? The bar is a true honky tonk just south of Atlanta in Conley. They’ve got karaoke on Sundays and Mondays, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, and they know how to throw down with their own house band. Y’all we have go to go!

Now, Atlanta’s bucket list has to include a little political and socioeconomic consideration. The Carter Center, an institution formed by Georgia’s native son President Jimmy Carter, is a mecca for fostering civil discourse, human rights, and engendering democracy across the world…right from here in Atlanta. We look forward to walking down the fine halls, plus reading in the incredible library, that have hosted a bevy of brilliant minds

Plus, living in the South, we must remember to be philanthropic. At some point we’d like to write about the process for adopting a dog from the Atlanta Humane Society. One of y’all must have been thinking about adopting a puppy recently. If you are heading down to the x, please call us and we’ll come write about the adoption process

That’s Part 2 of Pretty Southern’s Atlanta Bucket List. Check back next week for Part 3!
