Who will fill the old Arby's restaurant in Williamsburg?

At the DHA meeting last night, we learned that both Chik-fil-A and Starbucks are considering moving in to what used to be Arby's in Williamsburg.  (Bill - sorry I couldn't make it.  Work deadlines.  See ya next meeting, 'K?) You couldn't ask for a better scenario:  it's already built out for a restaurant, it has a drivethru, there are no zoning conflicts or variances needed.  So it's no surprise that there's more than one interested party.

Take the officially unofficial poll:
Which establishment would you prefer to replace the old Arby's in Williamsburg?

Diverging Diamond Interchange Video

Courtesy of the Dunwoody CVB.  Real-time view of navigating the much-touted DDI.  Even in the rain, it looks like drivers don't have much to fear.  Keep your eyes on the road, your cell phone in your pocket, and your bumpers between the lines and you're fine.

Greater Perimeter Business Expo on June 1

The Dunwoody Chamber has joined with the Sandy Springs Chamber for this year's Expo.  All of the exhibitor spaces are filled and the ballroom at Westin Atlanta Perimeter North is supposed to be packed.

Come out and see what your neighbors are doing.  Yes, the neighbors.  These are the people whose work keeps homeowners taxes down by paying the lion's share of Dunwoody's revenue.  Business people and homeowners are often one and the same in our little town.

If you are a small business owner and decided not to exhibit, there is an important place for you too:  The Expo is going to be the biggest networking event in town today.  Bring your cards, your promo items and be ready to shake some hands.  There's always time to make some new contacts.

The Expo is free and open to the public from 10 AM to 4 PM.  More info is at www.gpbe.org.  Even the parking is free.  ;-)

Take some pictures too - I expect that I'll be adding to the photo slideshow on that front page early next week!
