Resurfacing on Interstate 20 in Rockdale and Newton counties, and concrete replacement on the west side of I-285 have been canceled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

GDOT said it plans to move ahead with scheduled resurfacing on I-20 between Douglasville and Villa Rica, as it is very close to finishing the work -- well ahead of its projected November completion date. However, rain may briefly halt crews.

Zagat names Atlanta’s ’10 Hottest New Bars'

ATLANTA -- Zagat has released its list of the “10 Hottest New Bars” in Atlanta. The list includes new places and established ones, such as Holeman & Fitch, doing new things, the food guide says.

In introducing the list, Zagat said, “If you want a drink, you're in the right city. Whether you're looking for a quiet place to confer with knowledgeable mixologists about a still-under-the-radar Italian liqueur, a rowdy place to throw back some cold ones with friends or just a casual neighborhood joint where the cocktails are great, the drinking scene in Atlanta provides. Where are Atlantans drinking right now? What's hot and new? Read on to find out.”

Bars on the list include:

*Bar Amalfi (Zagat says, “This breezy Home Park bar in the Piazza San Gennaro mini-complex conjures sunny thoughts of coastal Italy, with striped blue-and-white umbrellas and open-air cabanas draped in flowing linens.”)
