Blue's Clues

Whippoorwill Hollow Farm Blueberry Picking

Holmes: Watson, I detect a curious indigo stain upon your shirt.

Watson: Yes, I’ve discovered an amazing spot called Whippoorwill Hollow Farm. Fresh air, blueberries ripe for the picking, farm animals to pet, and organic summer produce for sale.

H: I wish you’d leave the discoveries to me, Watson. But go on. What else did you find?

W: That light clothes and a little mosquito repellent would make my next berry-seeking excursion all the sweeter. After all, there were pheasant eggs to be purchased and wildflowers to be picked, and — ahem —I’ve had fresh blueberry pancakes every day this week.

H: By George, I believe I’ve solved the mystery.

W: Is it me, in the library, with a candlestick?

H: No, you fool! Both of us, at the farm, with a pail and cash or check. We can finally put the case of what to do when we weary of city life to rest.

Whippoorwill Hollow Farm, 3905 Highway 138, Covington (678-625-3272 or whippoorwillhollowfarm.com).

Float Your Boat

Float Spa

Thanks to the current financial slump, the only pampering you’re doing involves the tub and a bottle of Calgon.

But now Float is here to take you away. The new Inman Park oasis is committed to rubbing you down without draining your bank account.

Address your complexion with a two-hour corrective session, tailored to clearing up issues like acne and fine lines for just $78. Only got time for a quickie? Opt for the half-hour mini facial (just $21). Trained therapists work from a customized massage menu that includes prenatal, deep-tissue, and couple’s sessions, which run a mere $39 an hour (per person).

Super spendthrifts can save even more by joining the monthly membership program or opting for a spa party, which gets you a group rate.

Suffice to say, this joint is a hot deal.

Float, 240 North Highland Avenue, suite f, Inman Park (404-228-4423 or floatforvalue.com).
