Broderick Smylie, 36, has lived in Atlanta for 11 years, living throughtout the metro area from Norcross to Conyers to Decatur to Midtown. He's always enjoyed food and has a special fondness for Asian and Mexican restaurants on Buford Highway and in Duluth ― and, he says, don't knock OTP dining until you've tried it.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Smylie moved to Atlanta to escape the snow and cold winters.
“It gets colder here than I first envisioned,” he says.
Smylie said he began writing his own food blog, Savory Exposure, several years ago after following other food blogs he admired ― Tami Hardeman's “Running with Tweezers,” Hardy Wallace of “Dirty South Wine” and Matt from the former blog “Rowdy Food.”
Atlanta's gay bars and nightclubs threw down in a big way on New Year’s Eve. Our photographers were on-hand at several LGBT watering holes and snapped shots of party-goers into the early hours of the New Year.
