A new Atlanta-based restaurant app, CurEat, allows travelers and residents to curate their dining experience from their phone! Users can recommend their favorite eateries in their cities by making lists and sharing them with their followers. The app leverages your personal preferences based on themed lists, simplifying the search for the best meal in town.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream! America’s first liquid nitrogen franchise, Sub Zero Ice Cream, recently announced an expansion into the South, including shops in Georgia and Kansas.
Later this summer, Sub Zero will open two locations in metro Atlanta, downtown near the Georgia Aquarium, and in the northern Fulton County suburb of Sandy Springs.
Their desserts are flash frozen at -321 degrees, ensuring that the ice crystals remain minuscule to create extra creamy, smooth confections.
Gulfstream’s super mid-size aircraft, the G280, recently aced performance tests at some of Europe’s most challenging airports in the mountainous regions of Switzerland. Approved by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Safety Agency to fly steep approaches, G280 owes its speed and flexibility to top-notch design. According to Scott Neal, SVP Global Sales at Gulfstream, “The G280 provides easy access to Europe’s main financial center as well as many of its top ski destinations, making this super mid-size aircraft the ideal choice for entrepreneurs, adventure-seekers and discerning customers with a penchant for speed and efficiency.”
