Metro Atlanta apartment residents have a couple opportunities to keep their New Year’s resolutions to get fit AND eat more bacon right around the corner from several JAMCO Properties, Inc apartment communities like The Woods at Southlake and Oak Run Apartments in Jonesboro, Georgia.

First, you can have your bacon and eat it too! The Bacon Chase 5K and 0.05K fun runs seek to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and include all you can eat bacon at stops along the course. The event takes place at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia just minutes from Hidden Pines at Tara Apartments. Registration fees offer runners these benefits:

  • Unlimited bacon
  • [1] One free Bloody Mary (must be 21+ years old)
  • Signature Bacon Chase T-shirt
  • Bacon Chase bacon-scented “bib”

May the odds be ever in your FLAVOR!

Then, on April 26th &27th Tough Mudder brings its fast paced event back to Atlanta where residents can experience heart-racing excitement. This year the event at Bouckaert Farm in Fairburn, GA is a nearby drive from Bradford Ridge Apartments in Riverdale.

Let no obstacle stand in your way!

Halloween Pet Safety in Atlanta Apartments

This Halloween cutesy pet costumes are not Rover’s biggest enemy in Atlanta apartments. According to the Pet Poison Helpline, the number of calls about dogs ingesting chocolate more than doubles the week of Halloween. Chemicals in chocolate are dangerous for dogs and the smaller the dog, the higher the risk for poisoning. Signs of a chocolate overdose include: vomiting, agitation, elevated heart rate, tremors and collapse. Be mindful of your furry four-legged friends and all the candy going around. The same holds true of grapes, raisins and candy or food containing them.

Organize Your Atlanta Apartment

Is there anything as influential as the space you surround yourself with? Your Atlanta apartment plays a major role in how you relax. Design your apartment home to prevent clutter from negatively affecting your mental wellbeing. Life isn’t always orderly when you have to work, feed the kids, walk the dog, clean the kitty litter, do the shopping, cook, clean… the list goes on and on no matter your lifestyle.

Placing a child’s bed in the corner creates a convenient place to store toys.

The phrase, “out of sight, out of mind,” leaps out. Small furniture positioned in the corner of your apartment will create a great hiding spot. Ottomans and coffee tables with hidden storage are a stylish fix to keep items in your living room hidden.

Baskets made from natural materials are another way to bring order and beauty into your Atlanta apartment. These are easy to slide under the bed in the bedroom or they fit on the bookshelf in the home office. Personalize and label the compartments to easily find all your accessories.

Open shelving gives the illusion of extra space, but this decorating trick can expose your items to excessive dust. Nice fabric is cheap and can make a great cover for storage in the bathroom. Also, portable laundry baskets like the ones from IKEA can keep your apartment’s bathroom neat and clean.

Be creative in your Atlanta apartment rental to keep your home and mind clutter free. Spacious apartments for rent in Atlanta are now leasing at all JAMCO properties.

Get Ready For Good Luck!

Hoppin' John

In Atlanta we know about great food, and we know yummy food is simple. Complicated dishes are recipes for disaster! Delicious New Year’s Day meals are easy to put together. Don’t forget to include all the fixin’s for good luck! Collards or cabbage, ham, and black eye peas. Because they look like pennies, black eye peas are believed to bring wealth when eaten on New Year’s Day. Some chefs not satisfied with pennies put a dime in the pot AND Atlanta home cooks have their favorite ways to make them!  One popular southern approach to black eye peas is Hoppin’ John.  Bradford Ridge Apartments is excited to share this tasty traditional preparation:

Hoppin’ John Recipe:

Serves 6


2 tablespoons butter

1 clove fresh garlic, minced

1 small onion, chopped

1 small red bell pepper, chopped

2 cups black-eye peas, cooked

2 cups cooked rice

Fresh green onion for garnish


Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and minced garlic and cook for 5 minutes. Add peas and rice and cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Be careful not to overcook; Hoppin’ John is best when the bell pepper and onion still have some crunch to them. Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with green onion.
