My main source of inspiration is my community garden, A Sip of Paradise Garden, which I started back in March as a creative outlet for my work and the rest of the Atlanta bartending community. I had thought about starting a community garden for a while, but was ultimately empowered to make it happen after pitching the idea as a finalist in Bombay Sapphire’s Most Imaginative Bartender competition in February 2020.

Although I did not win, the success I achieved in the competition and the overwhelmingly positive response I received from my pitch gave me the motivation to gather my community together and bring the garden to life. We could have never known how much the project would help us in the months to follow, giving us hope and purpose during these incredibly tumultuous times.

A Sip of Paradise is located 572 Stokeswood Ave SE. We have recently started hosting a variety of wellness events such as meditation and yoga classes, which also help me stay inspired and motivated. We’re a registered business and 501c3 in the state of Georgia, and partner with other organizations like Free99 Fridge by helping stock their fridges with fresh herbs and veggies that they put in areas in Atlanta that are considered food deserts.

For the best off-the-beaten path to see art, I love the work of S. Darius Parker, a local artist born and bred in Atlanta. He hosts pop up shows in Castleberry Hills and other pockets in the city. An actual museum that I enjoy that combines my love of art and music is the Trap Museum (located at 630 Travis St NW). It highlights the art of Atlanta’s hip hop scene and supports local Atlanta artist. Total surprise.

And for my best-kept secret, I love Just Add Honey Tea Company! It's a black-owned tea shop in Atlanta on the beltline (located at 684 John Wesley Dobb Ave, Unit E). They have a beautiful shop with a wall of hand-blended teas. It's a great place to read, meet friends, or just enjoy a beautiful cup of tea in peace. Heaven.
