Opening scene of “Cougar Town,” TBS edition. The gang enter Jules’ kitchen. “It feels like we’ve been gone over a year!” says Laurie, played by Busy Phillips . (Actually, it’s only been eight months but who’s counting?) Jules ( Courteney Cox ): “I honestly thought we’d never be in this kitchen again just hanging out telling our stories to each other, to the world.” Travis, her son, played by former Marietta resident Dan Byrd : “Where were you guys?” Jules: “Over at Ellie’s. We ran out of wine. Really intense!” They go through their ritual of opening wine bottles. Travis… >>

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, “drink your juice, Shelby”? Sally Field fussing over Julia Roberts as M’Lynn and Shelby, respectively, in the 1989 Southern comedic tearjerker “Steel Magnolias,” of course. The new remake, premiering at 9 p.m. Oct. 7 on Lifetime, unobtrusively updates the story and features a stellar cast of African-American actresses assuming the leads. This version of “Steel Magnolias” is as much about sisterhood as it is about sistahood. >>, who has developed into a natural actress, gives the performance of her career.
[A combined sewer outflow project in Atlanta, photo courtesy of Williams International Group .] We’ve had so much fun talking about the desperate need to upgrade Atlanta’s transportation infrastructure that we almost forgot about the city’s ongoing issues with its water and sewer system. Some $480 million is needed to upgrade the city’s sewer system, and guess what? The city doesn’t have it. So the choice is the extension of a penny sales tax, or a 20% increase in water and sewer rates in the City of Atlanta (already the highest in the U.S.) And denizens of metro… >>
On the Market: 4 Beds, 3 Baths, Brown Shingles, Good Schools, Proximity to Purveyor of Polarizing Biscuits for $549,000
Click here to view the full photogallery. Today we travel over to the east side and drop in on Lake Claire , a lovely neighborhood one could be forgiven for mistaking for Candler Park, given the proximity and blurred boundaries of the neighboring ‘hoods. And while we’re not aware of an actual lake of noticeable size in the area, there are some lovely parks . This purty, brown-shingled renovation is just down the street from some cool local retail , Fellini’s/La Fonda, the original Flying Biscuit (please no comment wars on their biscuits…they’re different, alright?) as well as the Candler… >>
Click here to view the full photogallery. Normally when we see a house touting its 20,000 square feet of living space, we gird our loins for an exercise in OPEC Minister-grade gaudiness. You know, lots of gold and loud marble, ornate ‘theme’ rooms of disparate styles and a special money-burning fireplace. But when this listing was brought to our attention, we were struck by the relative tastefulness of the decor. Does one really need a full indoor golf facility and a gymnasium complete with still rings? We can’t say, we’ve never had John Daly or an Olympic gymnast in… >>
Over on Curbed National, they’re taking a look at a five-acre private island on Oregon’s Lake Oswego that’s home to a 1930s stone mansion (asking $15M ), lush gardens, and a swimming pool. While there aren’t any pics of the interiors, it’s worth taking a photo tour of the spectacular grounds. [Curbed National] >>
Annals of Transportation: At Least MARTA’s Lack of Cash Creates Opportunities for Architects and Designers
[The winning design from The Oasis Project, by SSA + D (Sarah Green and Daniel Echevarria), image courtesy of Open Architecture Network .] As anyone who has used MARTA this week is acutely aware, Atlanta’s lowly public transit system is perenially cash-strapped, resulting in the 40% fare hike that began on Monday. There are a variety of reasons for MARTA’s financial condition. We here at Curbed think a complete lack of operational funding from the State of Georgia for MARTA (in our capital city and primary economic engine, no less) is a pretty big culprit. But we digress.
