For 35 years, the Atlanta Jazz Festival has entertained folks looking for a jazz fix. Starting out as a local event, then regional and finally boasting an international audience, this year’s festival features an array of talented performers, including much-hyped band The Robert Glasper Experiment and jazz veterans Tito Puente Jr., Kathleen Bertrand and Roy Ayers. Featuring “31 Days of Jazz,” this year’s festival is sure to be just as entertaining as in years past.

Check out the photos from the 35th Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival’s Preview Party, which took place April 2012 at the Loews Hotel.

A Delicious Day in the Life of the Famous Restaurant

Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network has cooked up a dish that is equally as melodramatic as it is mouthwatering. The piping hot reality show, Welcome to Sweetie Pie's, is back for its second season of family fetes, fiery fights and fried fare. Thanks to Miss Robbie, Tim, Lil' Charles, Jenae and the well-skilled hands that give us the goods, Sweetie Pie's gives a new meaning to "all in the family." We recently visited St. Louis and Sweetie Pie's for an all-access, behind-the-scenes serving of the show and the restaurant's system of survival.

12:00 p.m. Arrival at Sweetie Pie's at the Mangrove. The aroma of fried chicken, candied yams, fresh baked breads and fruit cobblers great greets us at the door. Inside, melodic tunes are being performed by a jazzy duo of singers, while glasses clink and forks scrape plates during the lunch rush.

12:30 p.m. Access is granted. With complete pride and confidence, our tour guide, co-owner Tim, leads us into the kitchen to witness cheese being grated, pies being layered and batter being poured. Everyone is in great spirits as Lil' Charles tells jokes.
