I get tons of mail to junk up my inbox, but one of the millions is the HOT list by the Atlantan magazine.. I get this newsletter every Thursday and I will try to be better about posting some of the ideas it gives, that sound cool to me.. (this is my blog, by the way) So for this week..
The '80s are back minus the leg warmers and bad hair (whew!) with Yoforia, Atlanta's newest contender in the fro-yo wars. Get your fix of their frozen, low-calorie, non-fat goodness (green tea, tart, pomegranate) at any of three newly opened stores in Perimeter Mall, Virginia Highland and Alpharetta. Leave the shoulder pads at home. 888.YOFORIA.
s that a cold we feel coming on or is it just boutique bargain fever? Join the rest of Atlanta's stylish gals at the humongous two-day blowout, Boutique Bargains Clearance Sale, featuring fall and winter merch from all the fashionable stores (Pink Lemonade, Bilthouse, Sandpiper) at 50 to 70 percent off. This year's new location means bigger dressing rooms, more parking and more room for Prada, Jimmy Choo, Trina Turk and Theory. We feel better already. Jan. 18-19, 10AM-6PM; cash or check only.

Happy hour gets downright giddy at Thrive's Sushi Rock Tuesday. You'll be on a roll as you grab some sushi (no sticky wings here) and $4 drink specials (a vodka Red Bull perhaps?) as you chill on one of the mod white couches or zebrawood bar stools. Jan. 22, 8PM-10PM; no cover. 101 Marietta St., Downtown; 404.389.1000.
GET SMART NOW!
We predict there'll be no snoozing going on when the Tony Award-winning spoof of old musicals, The Drowsy Chaperone, comes to town. There are '20s-era gangsters on the lam, a glamorous bride-to-be, a Latin lothario and plenty of singing in this zany marriage of music and comedy. Jan. 22-27, various times; $21-$51. 600 Peachtree St. NE, Midtown; 404.881.2100.
