I am a rarity here in Gwinnett county these days, I have lived here my entire life. I consider myself a good southern boy and I like Coke. I do not worship Coke it's just that I do not like Pepsi. It is just too sweet and those people who claim they can't tell the difference well, I can. If I choose to go to the Gwinnett Arena for an event I will not purchase any soft drinks at all for me or my family.
I'm sorry if this hurts the fund raising efforts of the many local civic groups who work at the arena but I will not buy a product that I do not like or support. I also feel that the person who made this deal with Pepsi is probably not a native Atlantan or they would have known about the ruckus they were going to cause with this.
Bottom line, Atlanta is a Coke town. If you don't like it then, Delta is ready when you are.
The movie studios raise prices and they are surprised that people stop going to the theaters. The problem is that movies are a perishable item and even more so as internet pirates proliferate the movies online. To draw people back to the movies they need to lower the prices and offer more incentive to get people in the theater. Stop overcharging people for 3D movies that are sub par. Start offering deals for matinees and off peak days at the cinema. That will bring more families in during the week.
7.3 million and the football field got no improvements at all. The goal posts are still crooked, The kids still stand in raw sewage on the sidelines and there are hardly enough stands for parents to sit down on game day. But there are nice new shiny soccer fields that we spent a fortune on. Meanwhile Mill Creek has a nice artificial turf field. Hmmm.
