Pic(k) of the Week: Ahhh!



An innocent time before coronavirus: no social-distancing, no masks. But cold beers on hot days.

And street festivals.

Photo taken during the East Atlanta Strut, in the East Atlanta Village neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia, USA, on 28 September 2019.

One doubts if the coronavirus will permit this year's festivities. One hopes, though.

  • As I write this post on 20 June 2020, more than 8.62 million cases of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 have been reported across 188 countries and territories, resulting in more than 458,000 deaths. In the United States: 2,191,048 cases and 118,432 deaths; in the state of Georgia: 62,009 cases, 2,636 deaths. The World Health Organization has warned that the pandemic is ‘accelerating’ with a record spike in new infections.
  • The East Atlanta Strut is East Atlanta's free annual one-day neighborhood festival, always held on the third Saturday in September, featuring a parade, food, live music, art, and events. The festival is held to highlight the businesses in East Atlanta Village as well as raise funds for schools, senior programs, and Neighbor In Need East Atlanta. The festival is run completely with volunteers.

  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of images posted on Saturdays, occasionally (as is the case today) with a good fermentable as the subject.
