What is best about Atlanta?

Chavon: Diversity. We get a whole lot of different people from a lot of different places. It's a very central area, very convenient for people everywhere to come to. It's also very Southern hospitality. Everyone is nice and polite and that's good. Not when they're driving, but when they're walking, people are very approachable in this city. And our music. We're the crunkest.

Mane: Blondie [at the Clermont Lounge]. She still is working hard. That's the biggest attraction we have. She's a tradition. She takes care of herself and she's still there for our out-of-town guests. For money, she'll crush the PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) cans between her breasts. Go find that in other cities. I don't think you can. And not only is she talented in other areas, but she's an amazing bingo player.

Nicola: I've been here two weeks. I'm from New Orleans. I'm really amazed about the greenspace. I wasn't expecting so many trees. You can live in the middle of the city and feel like you're in the middle of the woods. We're living in Little Five Points and I like that because it feels like home. People have been really good to us here.
