Hello Alpharetta 1

Whether or not you’re a Falcons fan, you have to admit to being just the teensiest bit excited to see the new stadium taking shape downtown. The $1.5 billion, 2 million square foot behemoth boasts grandiose stats that make even a Saints fan swoon:

Total seating capacity (football) – 71,000

Number of suites: 190

Stadium height: 30 stories (305 feet)

Concessions: 673 (the Dome has 407)

Bars/restaurants: 24 (4 at the Dome)

Scoreboard size: 63,800 square feet – that’s the largest in the NFL!

See what I mean? Whitney Williams lives in Alpharetta and has been Assistant Project Manager at Darden & Company, LLC overseeing the construction and every aspect of the new build. He shares a tour on page 28.

We can’t wait!

I was so impressed with Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle’s dedication to an early morning running routine.  Check out his picks for the track on page 42.

Hydration is something every runner AND anyone who wants to stay on top of their good health to keep in check.  Dr. Jeff Greenwood explains how IV fluid therapy can help cure so many conditions and invites Alpharetta Lifestyle readers to come say hello at IV.OLOGY.  Read more on page 24.

It’s a month of doing and giving in the Lifestyle Publications world.  We had fun planning a contest for you to win a day of pampering with hair and make-up at Van Michael Salon, dinner at Davio’s Italian Steakhouse and massages and a luxury stay at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, with transportation for the winner plus one pal compliments of Posh Limousine. Head to our website to enter and splash out the contest on your social media for me!

Have a sporty month and enjoy our September issue.



P.S.  That’s me with my family biking the 8-mile loop waaaaaay up north at Mackinac Island in Lake Michigan last month.
