SANDY SPRINGS, GA — For many on the go in Sandy Springs, drinking coffee is celebrated seven mornings a week.
But there's a specific date that is specifically set to highlight one of the world's most consumed beverages. National Coffee Day is Sept. 29 across the United States and falls on a Wednesday in 2021.
National Coffee Day gives java lovers in Sandy Springs another reason to visit one of their local coffee shops.
In and near Sandy Springs, local coffee shops include:
The exact origin of how Sept. 29 (or Oct. 1 in other countries) became National Coffee Day is cloudy, according to a NationalToday.com summary of the country's long connection with the drink. It points to the 1773 Boston Tea Party as a key moment in U.S. history for when the country, quite literally, dumped tea for coffee.
When the people of the 13 colonies revolted against King George III's hefty tea tax, "tea was out, and coffee was in," the summary states.
The United States' connection with coffee only became stronger in the years to follow. Brothers John and Charles Arbuckle started selling coffee to cowboys in the American West during the mid-1800s, and James Folger introduced the drink to gold miners in California before creating the J.A. Folger & Co. in 1872, according to NationalToday.com.
Other brands still around today, such as Maxwell House and Hills Brothers, eventually entered the coffee market. And Starbucks "changed everything" when it formed in Seattle in 1971, according to the summary.
The U.S. coffee shop market has now grown into a $45.4 billion industry, according to an account that cites the Allegra World Coffee Portal's 2019 Project Café USA report.
A number of chain coffee shops are expected to offer deals for National Coffee Day, TheSpruceEats.com says.
Among them, Krispy Kreme will offer a free coffee and doughnut on the day, and Dunkin' Donuts a free medium hot or iced coffee with any purchase.
Starbucks also typically offers free samples or cups of coffee on Sept. 29, Coffeeaffection.com reported this year.
You picked the best pumpkin from Sandy Springs patches and fields this fall.

SANDY SPRINGS, GA — After picking out the best pumpkin at a store or during pumpkin patch and field visits in Sandy Springs, now comes the fun part: transforming it into the best jack-o'-lantern ever to usher in the fall season and, of course, Halloween.
No front porch in Sandy Springs is complete without having the best jack-o'-lantern to greet neighbors or strangers from afar during the month of October. But be warned: A sagging, rotting jack-o'-lantern on public display is just blasphemous — not to mention unfestive, in our humble opinion.
Unfortunately, carved pumpkins are susceptible to the outside elements. After about a week, they can soften and gradually shrivel up before turning black and moldy. Yuck!
But don't worry. There are a variety of ways to prolong the life of your jack-o'-lantern to keep it strong and healthy. Check out these handy tips below:
1. Pick A Pumpkin That Is Rock Solid
Avoid selecting a pumpkin in or near a pumpkin patch in Sandy Springs that looks to be in the early stages of decomposition. Blemishes or bruises are big red flags. Water-soaked spots on the pumpkin's upper surface may also be an indication of frost damage.
2. Use A Bleach Solution To Ward Off Bacteria, Fungus
After you carve your pumpkin, spray a bleach solution on the pumpkin's surface to help prevent mold from forming. Wipe down any excess.
3. Use Baking Soda To Absorb Moisture, Odors
Excess moisture can expedite the rotting process. To help absorb it, place a cup of baking soda inside the clean cavity of the pumpkin. To further prevent excess moisture from early morning dew and frost, also consider bringing your jack-o'-lantern indoors before you go to bed.
4. Smear Petroleum Jelly Over Your Jack-O'-Lantern
According to home improvement guru Bob Villa, applying a thin layer of petroleum jelly on the pumpkin's interior, the cut-out spots and the lid can provide a barrier to keep bacteria from reaching the flesh.
5. Spray Hairspray On Your Pumpkin's Cut Surfaces
Another way to slow down the decaying process is to apply hairspray on your jack-o'-lantern. The Farmers' Almanac says products designed for anti-humidity tend to work best. Of course, you should avoid hairspray if you plan to use combustible materials in or near your pumpkin.
6. Pay attention To The Weather Outside
If rain is in the forecast, bring your jack-o'lantern indoors to keep moisture at bay. In addition, temperatures from the upper 50s to lower 60s generally work best for jack-o'-lanterns, Smithsonian Magazine reports. When outdoor temperatures stray too far from this — be it too hot or too cold — rescue your pumpkin from the elements.

SANDY SPRINGS, GA — Throughout the pandemic, people all over the country sank deeper and deeper into their screens, often because they had no other choice. Especially in bigger cities and suburbs, people can feel more disconnected from the natural world than ever before.
Luckily, a simple trip to pumpkin patches and fields around Sandy Springs in search of the best jack-o'-lantern- or pie-worthy pumpkin can be not only fun and wholesome but also stimulating and educational. For parents eager to teach their children about how food is grown, pumpkins can be great teachers.
Some studies have shown that a 4-year-old child will ask up to 300 questions a day. That number might quadruple at a nearby pumpkin patch, where children will see an eclectic array of fruits, vegetables, animals and plants, maybe for the first time.
"Why is that pumpkin so huge and the other one is so small?"
"Why are they such different shapes?"
"Why is that pumpkin white, and why is that pumpkin blue?"
"How do you grow a pumpkin?"
"Does the pumpkin cost more than our house?"
"And over there — what is THAT?"
Even if parents may not know all the answers, knowledgeable farm staff will be on hand to answer all the child's questions. And because kids are surrounded by beautiful nature and not a desk and a whiteboard, they'll likely be excited to learn, without any of the negative associations they might hold with the classroom. What's more, many farms offer small tours, classes and fun activities designed for children.
"Giving children the freedom to roam and pick their own pumpkins gives them a sense of independence and pride," Wing Farms, an organic pumpkin patch in Ann Arbor, Michigan, wrote on its website. "This also can provide a teaching opportunity about pumpkins, gourds and other fruits and vegetables that grow on vines. Children will also ask questions about the animals, farm equipment, plants and more."
A mother named Christy has turned a pumpkin patch visit into an entire educational unit for her young children. After getting some pumpkins for her nearby patch, Christy then reads a children's book about pumpkins to her kids. She asks them to observe the pumpkins they picked out, and then describe and draw them in a nature journal. The next day, she reads, "From Seed to Pumpkin," an illustrated book explaining how pumpkins grow. Afterward, the children guess how many seeds will be in the pumpkin, and then they carve the top off a pumpkin and count. When everything is counted, the family roasts the seeds and eats them.
From just a single trip, the kids worked on their skills in math, reading, writing and science, and got to try a new and healthy food. Here's a detailed description of Christy's pumpkin lesson.
To help your kids connect to the land and have fun doing it, check out one of your local pumpkin patches nearby, and ask if they offer any workshops or tours.

Mutation Brewing Company is the new brewery and taproom headed to Sandy Springs courtesy of Jack Poole and Chris and Michael Shapiro. The avid home-brewers have set up shop at 5825 Roswell Road NE, just down the street from Las Tortas Locas and Gyro Bros.
“We were homebrewers for many years and we wanted to bring our passion for craft beer to the larger Sandy Springs market,” Co-Founder Jack Poole shared in an email with What Now Atlanta. “We wanted to provide the market with fresh, exciting new flavors.”
The brewery won’t specialize in any one variety of beer; the brewers have gained experience brewing across a wide-range, so you can expect to enjoy all the big hitters when it comes to beer as well as seltzer. “Chris and Michael’s mother was born and raised in Peru so we will be integrating some local Peruvian drink varieties and ingredients into a few of our beers,” Poole added.
A recent update via social media shares that the brewing company is beyond the permitting phase and undergoing construction at its new home. 5825 Roswell Road is a 9,137 square-foot building, which includes 2,200 square-feet of covered patio, uncovered patio, and rooftop bar space. The brewery will feature a U-shaped bar able to accommodate 30 patrons. In addition to a private dining area for special events, the team at Mutation Brewing has built a speakeasy with its own bar, style, and seating area hidden from the rest of the brewery’s operations. All-in-all the brewery, which is dog and kid friendly (very important features for a good brewery, we must say), will seat 250 patrons at full capacity.
Oh, and plan to enjoy some Spiced Right Barbecue while you’re sipping on a cold beer—Mutation Brewing Company has partnered with the Historic Roswell Neighborhood staple that’s been around since 2004.
Poole says the brewery hopes to open by mid-to-late December, although delays may push the opening to early January. Find Mutation Brewing Company on social media for updates.

Tre Vele, which opened Monday, is a new Italian restaurant in Sandy Springs from the partners behind Buckhead’s Mission + Market, including longtime Atlanta chef Ian Winslade and brothers Jonathan and Ryan Akly.
Located in the former Three Sheets space in the City Walk neighborhood center, Tre Vele features a rambling 3,500-square-foot dining room and a 1,500-square-foot open-air rooftop terrace.
In addition, there will be an Italian market and cafe with indoor and outdoor seating, coffee drinks and fresh baked goods from pastry chef Jae Eun Park, a house-made pasta station, plus sauces and pizza. To-go prepared meals are coming soon.
The market also features a retail wine shop, with a wall of curated Italian selections, and a community table for hosting wine tastings, wine dinners, and private events.
The Akly brothers’ father, Tony Akly of the Sandy Springs’ Restaurants Consulting Group Inc., took on the architectural and interior design, creating a refined contemporary ambience with lots of natural light and cozy seating areas. The upstairs lounge includes a separate bar, with heaters and multiple fire pits, under strings of twinkling lights.
Last week, Winslade, Jonathan Akly, and executive chef Giancarlo Ruiz, who previously worked at Storico Fresco in Buckhead, sat down at a table at Tre Vele to talk about the build-out, and their take on the concept and seasonal menu.
“We basically gutted the whole space,” Akly said. ”It was a lounge, and it was very dark and moody. We opened up all the windows, and did a lot with white and marble and green jewel tones.”
“Giancarlo I’ve known for a long time, and our paths have crossed several times in the restaurant industry, but we’d never really worked together,” Winslade said. “When it came time to repurpose this Three Sheets space, we kicked around a bunch of different ideas, but we landed on Italian. And then I said I know exactly the right guy to put in the kitchen, and that was Giancarlo. He lives and breathes Italian, and he’s so passionate about the food.”
“It’s a big opportunity for me, and I bring my talent and my knowledge from Italy,” Ruiz said. “I grew up in Florence, and all my cooking experience comes from there. But we tried to make the menu from the whole country, not just one region. I want to bring the whole of Italy into the restaurant.”
The current menu ranges from antipasti, salads and pizza to pasta, entrees and sides. Pesce Spada Affumicato is a starter from Sicily with orange cured and smoked swordfish and Calabrian chile. Another seafood dish from Southern Italy, grilled Branzino fillet, is a mild white fish served with layered potatoes, tomatoes and squash.
From Northern Italy, the surprising Vegano thin crust pizza is layered with wild mushrooms, hazelnuts, vegan cheese, black truffle and cashew cream. And there’s a rich pappardelle pasta with lamb ragu slowly braised with Sangiovese wine and finished with a dusting of Grana Padano cheese. Dessert options include tiramisu, blood orange panna cotta, and a warm plum crostada.
“The cafe and market is an important piece,” Winslade said. “We’re going to open that up in the morning, and the idea is that people can drive up and get coffee and hang out, and with that we’re developing a little breakfast pastry program.”
“We definitely see the cafe as being a community place throughout the day, but we’re also seeing the market side,” Akly said. “We’re going to be retailing all of our fresh pastas and lots of other things, too.”
Dining room: 4-10 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays; 4-11 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays. Lunch and brunch coming soon. Cafe and retail hours: 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Mondays-Fridays; 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturdays.
