Weeklong Citywide Programming Featuring Over 25 Events Accessible via Peach Pass,
Tickets + RenderATL Conference Badge

RenderATL, the trailblazing annual tech conference and networking mecca in Atlanta, begins next week and is pleased to announce the first-ever Atlanta Tech Week taking place from May 30 – June 4, 2023. Atlanta Tech Week, also produced by tech mogul and one of Inc.’s 30 Under 30 recipients, Justin Samuels, marks a significant milestone for the Atlanta technology scene by cultivating an entire ecosystem of innovators, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts through unique programming and cultural community.

Atlanta Tech Week’s goal is to encourage knowledge sharing, networking, and idea exchange, creating an environment where individuals and organizations can thrive and contribute to the local tech landscape while cultivating a deep sense of Atlanta culture. While being one of the country’s fastest-growing technology hubs, Atlanta fosters a sense of diversity and inclusion that will create space for Atlanta Tech Week to truly take over through alluring events at some of the city’s most beloved venues, such as Ponce City Market, Hotel Indigo, and The Gathering Spot.

Through engaging citywide events, phenomenal Southern cuisine, captivating games, notable speakers, live music performances, and an overall sense of connectivity, Atlanta Tech Week paves the way for attendees to flourish in technological innovation and opportunity. As part of Atlanta Tech Week, RenderATL is a three-day conference breaking traditional barriers between culture and conference. Samuels has a vision that goes beyond conventional conference parameters; it’s one that encompasses Atlanta’s culture, atmosphere, and dedication to growing through technology and engineering.

Featured speakers from RenderATL will also be in Atlanta and participating in Atlanta Tech Week such as David Beitel, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Zillow; David Barrett, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Expensify; Felecia Hatcher, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Black Ambition Project; and Daylon A. Goff, President of JET.

With several participating organizations helping to make the week possible, Atlanta Tech Week will highlight 20-25 noteworthy events such as an Electric Vehicle (EV) Car Show in partnership with Ponce City Market and Juicy Power on June 1 at 6 p.m., complete with an expert EV panel and some of the latest EV’s. Other noteworthy events include:

  • Atlanta Tech Week Kickoff Party on the Atlanta Tech Village rooftop
  • Off the Chain Thursday: Web3 Party and Pitchfest at Atlanta Blockchain Center
  • Atlanta Tech Week Brunch at Public Art Futures Lab
  • RenderATL + Epic Games: Music in Unreal at The Gathering Spot ATL
  • “Female Founders in Innovation” Dinner at The Clubhouse at Tech Square Atlanta Social Club
  • RenderATL – Crescent Avenue Bar Crawl
  • RenderATL x R&B House Party at Ponce City Market Rooftop
  • Small Business & Startup Social Hour Powered by TikTok

“It’s always been a dream of mine to launch a Tech Week in Atlanta and after the success of our flagship event, RenderATL, it’s only natural to debut it this year,” said Samuels, Founder and CEO of RenderATL. “Together, these events further emphasize our core beliefs around diversity and inclusion. By truly nurturing this ecosystem, Atlanta Tech Week paves the way for sustainable growth, thus empowering the city to become a technological hub that promotes excellence and opportunity.”

Various ticket options are available, including the Peach Pass option that allows access to one day of the RenderATL conference complemented by unlimited access to all activations, and the Kaytranada concert.

Wahoo! Grill

Posted by Liz and John Attaway, 5/21/23

Nestled in a secret garden off College Ave, Wahoo! Grill has been serving Decatur for 18 years and we know why they love it. The moment you walk in the door you’re greeted with an indoor-outdoor vibe, in the main dining space, while outside a large patio that feels secluded. On the menu, a wide variety of options abound from Wahoo fish to lamb to southern staples, as well as a great cocktail menu and desserts. Let’s explore. 

Starting with their signature Grilled Wahoo Sofrito that’s tender yet meaty and topped with a tomato forward Spanish sofrito sauce, earthy, crunchy asparagus, and an earthy, seasoned savory risotto underneath. OR go for their new menu item, the grilled half rack of lamb, our favorite bite of the day! Succulent and tender, well-seasoned lamb, the rhubarb sauce underneath is sweet and juxtaposed the savory meat. Then, paired with a sharp and herbaceous potatoes au gratin and earthy asparagus!  

Plus, Wahoo! Grill’s cocktail program is “perfection” with this Pina en la pina is a fresh and tangy pina colada style drink with a great tang, cream, and dash of nutmeg. And for the finale, make sure to sample the bread pudding; it’s grandmother’s recipe! It is warm and rich, stuffed with raisins topped with a creamy bourbon glaze. OMG! 

Other menu highlights include the Pimento cheese Fritters! They are sinful crispy bites stuffed with pimento cheese inside then a sharp and a sweet spicy tomato sauce underneath! Also, their solid fried green tomatoes that are crispy, perfectly breaded outside, slightly crisp yet tender tomato inside, then a balsamic drizzle for brightness and cool goat cheese to round out the bite. They typically come with shrimp, but we got without.  

Fried chicken, a staple of Wahoo! Grill’s menu, is plump and tender, and has a great crunch outside. Paired with collard greens that are rich, spicy and savory, as well as crunchy warm fries. Finish it off with, A crime of passion, an herbaceous and floral gin cocktail mixed with juicy passion fruit and lime, then a rose petal rim to dress it up!
