The Atlanta Braves had a bad season this year. That’s not news to anyone. The Braves have limped along for the past couple of years, and this season wasn’t much different aside from the opening of SunTrust Park, their new home in Cobb County. On the other hand, I hadn’t realized the situation was so bad until I dropped in to Todd English Tavern, expecting to catch the ...

DISH OF THE WEEK: Cinnamon Toast doughnut at Doughnut Dollies

By Ben Brasch

I always get excited when I see cinnamon-anything on a menu.

But cinnamon can be disappointing, as I found out in kindergarten upon chomping into a curled piece of cinnamon instead of putting it in potpourri like I was supposed to.
