The sun reappeared in Atlanta today. Local favorite, Octane, has been purchased by Revelator. It remains to be seen how this will transpire but the couple that owned Octane built a powerful Southeastern brand. The purchaser has ties to the holding company that owns portions of Peet's Coffee, Intelligentsia, stumptown, Caribou and more. Hopefully they will invest and capitalize on the traits that make Octane strong. Octane creates customer loyalty by seemlessly moving between caffeine and adult libations. Their locations seem to focus on the community connection. Octane is not broken, so please don't fix it! We will have to decide whether the infusion of cash from out west impacts the local vibe, but for right now, those of us in the South still claim Octane as one of our own!
What a Monday! From the weather to getting over being sick and working from home, it was quite a day. I can't complain though because we are so thankful to be safe and with power. My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by all of the storms that have happened over the last few weeks. I can't begin to imagine what some are going through right now. I hope everyone has a great week and stays safe! : @minelasejdinphotography
