*** This is less than a mile from the Decatur square, with parking at

points.. Less than a mile down on the right (look for Thinking Man
Tavern, at a light, on your right).. Located in a parking lot behind
DECATUR FOOD REVIEW:
The last year or so I have sampled several restaurants around the
decatur square.. Here is my opinion.. Please share with the group if
you like a place around the square (email me)..
I have heard the Iberian pig and the thai place are both good (both
near CORE) (but havent been to either).. Sweet Melissas is good too
(hamburgers, etc, normal food at normal prices)..
*** Good and affordable.. I had the chicken teriyaki several times,
and it was great every time, and so was the soup and salad ($10.50)..
I had a iced green tea that was good too.. Location, next to CORE
studio on the square..
Everyone else loves it, I didnt.. Lots of beer.. Location, next to
PARK at the door.. This place has the best teriyaki IMHO.. More
expensive than sushi avenue: chicken and shrimp teriyaki was about
$15, plus $2 for the miso soup.. I usually go here because its damn
good.. However, I did have bad chicken one time (tasted funny)..
Located in the big parking lot behind the CVS (as you drive around the
FROYOLO is on the square near the gazebo..
And I was told yogurt-tap makes their own. Near java monkey coffee
(church and ponce).. Easier parking than the square..
Atlanta�s only mixed music milonga (tango dance)..
Beginner Friendly early evening (tango class at 8PM)..
PICTURES from DEC, 2011:
The majority of the music is tango (traditional and modern).. We
sneak in some blues, salsa, and swing.. Tango dance and music are
always evolving. Since modern, tango builds on the old as it evolves,
the music we play, and the dance we teach are likewise both
traditional, and Modern., Modern also means any gender can lead or
follow by choice, rather than by gender dictation. Changing lead and
follow roles is always OK as a modern idea, just for fun, or to
improve your dancing.
Everyone is welcome at Oasis tango..,
$10, 8 PM CLASS
FREE PARKING ,
EXAMPLE of modern tango dance: ,
There is a class before the monthly dance 8PM, and every Sunday 3PM
class (more info at www.tangooasis.com)..
All classes are beginner friendly, and you do not need a partner.. For
intermediate dancers, we usually break off into two tracks.. Practice
on your own, or join our class. The secret to taking your dance to the
next level is refining the tango fundamentals. Kwang and Brian�s
ADVANCED class is going very well. Their style strongly resembles the
style I have seen in Chicago and New Jersey with world famous teachers
like Frenanda/Giullermo, and Nancy/Damian who teach all over the
world. This is an exciting opportunity to learn modern tango. Also,
musicality is an integral part of our classes.. And we endeavor not to
burden you with having to come to a series of classes.. Rather we make
the 2 hours of class progressive instead. Shoes should be able to
pivot on the floor (not be too sticky).. It is suggested followers
wear closed toes shoes.. ,
Rotating with the class is always optional, but recommended. ,
I suggest you show up early and try one of the restaurants on the
square.. I saw pubs, Sweet Melissa's, 3 pizza places, thai and raging
burrito for starters.. If you drive around the square, there are about
20 more restaurants in walking distance., ,
DECATUR: , See map to get to Decatur.. ,
Once there the main square is easy to find. The dance studio is on the
square.. I suggest you drive around the square to see all the
restaurants, and to find the parking decks..,
PARK FREE ,
USE THE DECK ON SWANSON WAY (where the busses are).. ,
When you find the square, this is one place where you can go around
the block (keep making right, or left turns).. There is only a parking
deck on trinity, and another on Swanson Way.. Both appear to be FREE
on SATURDAY EVENINGS..,
AFTER YOU PARK: , Go out on foot to Swanson Way, then walk toward
MARTA (go straight, no turns).
Several Dancers Core dance studio will be down about a block on your
right.. , ,
