"I think we're being used by both sides unfortunately," Marlow's Tavern's general manager in Northlake said this week.
A Northlake restaurant scheduled to hold a fundraiser for the Lakeside City Alliance on Tuesday did not back out of the event after some angry Tucker residents protested the restaurant's involvement on Facebook, the restaurant's general manager said this week. The alliance announced the cancellation of the April 2 event last week after it said residents on several anti-alliance Facebook pages and groups threatened to protest Marlow's Tavern at 4156 Lavista Road if it went forward with the event. The alliance called out two Facebook sites, Tucker Town Talk and Save Tucker From Lakeside City, specifically. "Marlow's Tavern is a great neighborhood business, and we understand their concern for protecting their business from negative media …

Tucker’s annual holiday festival got a ho-ho-whole lot bigger and better this year.
The evening started last Thursday with the anxious anticipation of parents, cameras in hand, waiting for the Northlake Children’s Chorus to ring in this year’s holiday season. Tucker resident Jeff Sears watched while daughter Annabelle sang "Jingle Bells" and "Christmas is Coming" with her fellow carolers. “The best yet,” he said. “They picked a good day of the week, in conjunction with the (Tucker) Farmer’s Market. More people are here this year.” Ester Davis agreed this year has been the best Christmas on Main Street yet. “We come to almost every event downtown. It makes you feel like you live in a small town.

The regional chain, which started in Toco Hill, will move into Northlake Festival early next year.
I've written a bit about the struggling commercial corridor up there in Northlake. (Northlake Festival Shopping Center and such.) I was just up there yesterday, however, eating a little Panda Express while reading and finishing up on some work, and, dare I say, it looked like the community might be rebounding a bit. And with that, here's some news that Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint will move into Northlake Festival sometimes early next year, according to Tomorrow's News Today. From the story: Atlanta-based Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint plans to open sometime early next year at Northlake Festival.
