Halfway Crooks Brings Munich Traditions to Atlanta; Little Tart Now Offering New Iced Coffee Made with Atlanta-based Portrait Coffee’s Barry

Georgia Avenue in Summerhill is the place for shopping, dining, and fans to hang out before or after Georgia State University football games this fall. Summerhill has something for everyone. Food specials and fun events for September include:  

  • C10s in the City is coming back to Summerhill during Labor Day weekend. The classic car show, which features Chevy trucks, will benefit the Pink Fund. The nonprofit provides financial aid to breast cancer patients. The free event, featuring more than 300 classic trucks for car enthusiasts, takes place on Saturday, Sept. 3 from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • Georgia Vintage Goods is bringing back Summerhill Sundays, a popular vintage and handmade pop-up market featuring some of the best local creators and curators from Atlanta and beyond. The market pops up in Summerhill’s A Lot and is open from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Halfway Crooks invites guests to break out their lederhosen when it goes all out for Oktoberfest Sept. 8-Oct. 2. The brewery celebrates German beer and culture with German-style lager liters, Bavarian food specials, and live music from Auf Gehts performing in extra outdoor spaces.
  •  Junior’s Pizza boasts New York-style pizza made with quality ingredients at an affordable price. The September special is the Fig Lebowski, featuring goat cheese, arugula, prosciutto, and fig preserves. Diners can walk up, call in or place orders online.
  • Little Tart, a sun-soaked standalone bakery in Summerhill, is offering a new, flash-brewed iced coffee. The latest drink uses Atlanta-based Portrait Coffee’s Barry and features notes of crisp cherry, brown sugar, and green apple. This thirst-quencher is delicious with or without cream and sugar.

About Summerhill Carter, in partnership with K. King & Company and Healey Weatherholtz Properties, is redeveloping Summerhill, an 80-acre mixed-use project in downtown Atlanta with Georgia State University as the anchor. The private development team is developing 35 acres into a mixed-use neighborhood including corporate office uses, traditional multifamily apartments, specialty and neighborhood retail, and private student apartments. The developers’ vision is to activate the streets of Summerhill into a vibrant, walkable, commercial corridor while maintaining the neighborhood’s historic fabric. The combination of the new and existing commercial buildings will create an accessible, human-scale destination where people want to eat, shop, and spend time.
