Tweet Up Showcased “Life on the Curve”

Last week I had an amazing time at the 1010 Midtown Cocktail Hour Tweet Up. The event was filled with social media savvy Atlanta professionals who were there to network, tour condos and sample tasty morsels from restaurants close to this Atlanta live, work, play community.

Peachtree epitomizes the sights and sounds of the city and the stretch through midtown is my favorite. I was reminded of this pulling up to the 1010 Midtown building. After checking in with the concierge, I walked to the elevator which transported me to the 21st floor and the luxury of the condos in this building.

The 21st floor of the Atlanta high-rise contains the decorated models, each showcasing a different Atlanta decor store. Several restaurants of the 12th & Midtown development were set up in the models and the aroma of different foods wafted into the hallway. Standing on the balcony of a beautifully decorated condo, noshing on eggplant crostini from Noon and gazing over Peachtree at dusk made me feel on top of the world. (more…)
