Yesterday I read this quote from Southern Culture on the Skids and I've been smiling about it ever since:
Their website goes even further:
BBQ + Wine? Moonshine Martinis? Food is a good illustration of the culture mashing that goes on in a city like Atlanta. You can find cuisine from around the world, plus gourmet collards and pecan-crusted catfish. I dream of starting a cafe where you can get both a real biscuit and a smoldering latte in one sitting.
So much of our definition of "the south" is rural– plantations, magnolias, small town hospitality– so what happens when our agricultural roots get paved over? When we finally admit that we live in cities– even though "this used to be way out in the country." Leave it to a geeky rawk band like SCOTS to provide the correct terminology.
