NASCAR and Glam

It feels so much better to have fun when it’s for a good cause! Last night the place to be to watch the Academy Awards was at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center. While black tie was optional it was a marvelous looking crowd that enjoyed the Oscars in style and helped raise money for a very important organization. And what a night it was for Atlanta. We had many Atlanta natives attending the Academy Awards of course but Tyler Perry stood out from the crowd! Asked to be a presenter, Perry was funny and elegant all at the same time. We are honored to call him one of our own and look forward to a win or two in the future. The C.E.P.A.C hosted about 600 guests for a night of great food, drinks, and dancing, and of course the glitz and glamour of Oscar. It was the 9th annual Atlanta Red Carpet event and they raised money for The Center of Family Resources.

CFR has been helping low-income Atlanta families since 1960 with things such as employment, education, housing services, leadership development programs, mentoring opportunities, temporary financial, and food assistance. It is truly inspiring to see such selfless people still exist in our society and make such a difference. We here at the Inn at the Peachtrees salute you and all the work you do to better our city!

On the other end of the spectrum good old family fun was had at Atlanta Motor Speedway with NASCAR in town. What a perfect weekend for NASCAR. With the temperature reaching the 60’s things were heating up. Most notably with Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards we look forward to seeing how this little feud plays out and look forward to NASCAR and our friend the HardCore RaceFans returning to Atlanta and the Inn at the Peachtrees in September.



Only in Atlanta can you go from 27 degree high to 57 degrees in 48 hours. That seems to be a theme that we are extending into the weekend. We seem to be going from one extreme to another. Our highs are reaching the 60’s, spring is definitely in the air, but the winter is lingering with the 26 degree lows. Atlantans are ready to come out of hibernation! So what will you be doing this weekend?
For those of you that are sad to see the cold go this weekend is the final weekend for Snow Mountain. Take the kids sledding and enjoy some hot chocolate and get ready for warms skies to come. Six flags over Georgia are opening this weekend, just as Snow Mountain comes to a close. Perfect for those of you ready to celebrate the sun!
This weekend we are hosting NASCAR at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Inn at the Peachtrees would like to welcome Hardcore Racefans that have already started making their way to the city. We are in for an exceptional weekend. So whatever you decide to do this weekend make the most of it. Take in some sun. Enjoy it while you can, because Mother Nature is full of surprises!
