Atlanta Eats’ own Kimberly Shapiro visited Flywheel Alpharetta recently, here’s what she had to say about the studio + Avalon!
I had the greatest Sunday afternoon this past weekend that I had to share with all of you. It was the perfect combination of workout + lunch + girlfriend time + shopping! I can’t believe I can get all of this in one place!!
And because we at Atlanta Eats love you so much, we are willing to share this recipe for a perfect day:
Sign up for a Flywheel class at the new Avalon location and get a quick and intense sweat with an awesome instructor like Marisa who has the best playlist ever! Peel your girlfriend off of her bike, do a quicky freshen up/change and walk through the awesome Avalon Shopping Center for lunch at Marlow’s Tavern! (I actually stopped into Goldberg’s for the best hazelnut coffee on the planet on my way to Marlow’s, which has a fantastic tuna tartare and happens to be right next door). Have wonderful chat with girlfriend as you break down the shopping plan of attack, and then walk through Avalon (which is an awesome outdoor shopping center on steroids) and hit a few fantastic stores and maybe even a quick makeup application at the super cool little makeup store there.
Find a perfect new pair of jeans that look great on you (thanks Flywheel!) and enjoy your completely perfect day!
