“But back to the fun stuff: restaurant-wise I love [fellow Indigo Girl Emily Saliers’] Watershed, of course. That’s like my default, pretty much. But there is this Bangladeshi restaurant on Buford Highway that is unbelievable. So, so, so good! Panahar. And the guys that run that place, they’re just great. Really clever. They won’t let you order what you want, how you want to. They tell you what you can eat that day, and it’s good so you just go with it.

“I like the Earl for partying. I don’t drink, but I love the bands they have there. I love going to see shows there. It’s my favorite venue in Atlanta.

“And I really like Little Five Points, generally, for shopping.. . . I’ve always been more of a thrift store person, but I’m starting to find a lot of stuff at, like, the gay men’s clothing store. So Bill Hallman’s right down my alley.”
