How to Make New Friends at Any Age

January 29, 2015 2:04 pm

In elementary school, meeting a new friend was as simple as sharing a box of crayons during story time. Now that you’re older you have far fewer opportunities to talk to like-minded people who could become new friends, but that doesn’t mean that you should give up entirely. Use these smart tips to begin making new friends at any age:

  1. Ask friends and family. Just like you might ask friends and family if they know anyone you might be interested in romantically, you can do the same for platonic relationships. It’s much easier to meet a friend when you already have someone to introduce you.
  2. Be more social at parties. Instead of clinging to the group of people you already know at parties, make yourself more of an extrovert. Introduce yourself to anyone who looks like a potential friendship candidate, and be sure to exchange contact information.
  3. Try something new. One of the very best ways to make new friends as an adult is through a shared interest. Join a book club, begin taking a workout class or even volunteer at your kids’ school to be around people with interests similar to yours. Just be sure to put yourself out there and strike up a conversation with anyone you meet.

Flying Biscuit Cafe: Get Breakfast in a Hurry Anytime

January 21, 2015 1:05 pm

For over 20 years, the Flying Biscuit Cafe has served fast, tasty food to happy Atlantans. The only downside of this popular restaurant is how crowded it can become, regulars say – but if you think you’d feel cramped in the small, bustling space, you can always take your food to go. Order breakfast all day long, or enjoy something from the lunch and dinner menu. Regulars recommend the Southern style biscuit Benedict, the not your Mama’s pimiento cheese, the award winning shrimp and grits, the turkey hash, the biscuit chicken pot pie, the oven fried green tomatoes and the fresco fish tacos.

Locals like that the Flying Biscuit Cafe offers plenty of vegan and vegetarian options, even for breakfast, and they like the reasonable prices here too. They do warn that the Flying Biscuit can be a little hard to find, as the patio is sunken below street level and the restaurant itself is a bit tucked away.
