Torched Hop Brewing
249 Ponce de Leon Ave. NE, Atlanta, GA
By late July, I hope everyone will be adequately adjusted to the heat and allergies, and finally recovered from the Esri UC, if you were lucky enough to attend. To kick off summer, MAGS will return to Midtown on 7/21, to enjoy the setting of the new Torched Hop brewpub on Ponce.
Torched Hop is in the former Old Spaghetti Factory space, a 5-block walk or ride east from the North Avenue MARTA station (and a block west of Krispy Kreme). If you drive, there’s a fair amount of street parking in the vicinity, as well as free parking in the Camden Apartments garage behind Torched Hop.

“Mapping Atlanta for Urban Advocacy”
— Darin Givens —
During this talk we will look at the way that mapping tools and published, mapped data can serve the needs of an advocate for good urbanism. Maps of demographic data, population density, transit access and even parcel ownership all help to tell a story about the relationship between Atlanta’s culture and its geography. Analyzing related maps and finding connections has provided rich source material.
Darin Givens is an Atlanta writer and web professional who spent five years taking a deep dive into the subject of urbanism in Atlanta, researching and writing about the built environment of the city on the blog ATL Urbanist. His work has been published in several outlets including Atlanta Magazine and Creative Loafing, and he has been featured on local radio and television talking about the way the shape of the city affects us all.
This event is FREE!
Because most people likely have plans to celebrate the patron saint of pest control on the 17th, we’re giving you time to recover by pushing our March social back one week to the 24th.
By popular demand, we’re doing another north-side social this month. Please join us at Southbound in Chamblee on March 24,at 6:00.
Southbound is conveniently located in the heart of old Chamblee, at the corner of Peachtree Road and American Industrial Way, and is just a few minutes’ walk north from the Chamblee MARTA station.
We’ll be in the “Engine Room”, at the front of the restaurant.
