You Know You Live in Atlanta When…Coca-Cola Is Art

Just up the street from my house there’s a music venue called “Grocery on Home” – and they have the coolest vintage ad for Coca-Cola on their building. It’s art.

It’s kind of crazy to think how a soft drink built so much of Atlanta, but it did. For all its faults, the Coca-Cola brand is *it* around Atlanta. Our art museum even celebrated 100 Years of the Coke Bottle in an art exhibition. Oh – we also have an entire museum dedicated to Coca-Cola.

Sometimes I’m not sure whether to be proud or weirded out. I guess sometimes you have to sell out.
