In the guest chair(s):

And in the headlines:
- Chequers Restaurant in Dunwoody is shutting down after 31 years, but it’s not all bad news… they are re-opening in a new location!
- And we’ve talked a lot about innovation at GA Tech on this show, but this week, a GSU Professor has been awarded a 2.8 million dollar federal grant for drug research. Take that Georgia Tech.
- Amazon introduces Prime Pantry. I’m a Prime fan, so not sure how this will effect me. But Amazon is smart… get me hooked and then raise the prices. Yup, smart.
- And Apple doubters, back off, yesterday Apple stock prices went up by more than 8%. So all the tech reporters just waiting for them to fail may have to wait a little longer.
