The company-owned store will be rebuilt with a reopening date planned for the end of May.
Our thanks to Sheri Snyder, owner of Objet d'Art Gallery and Studios who captured the action as bulldozers razed the burned out Dreamland Bar-B-Que restaurant on Friday, Feb. 22. The popular eatery, located on Peachtree Parkway across from The Forum, caught fire shortly after 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013. Fortunately there were no injuries but the fire destroyed the building. In an email Snyder told Patch that the manager from Dreamland had stopped by her art gallery and she asked him what was happening to the rebuilding of the restaurant. "He said 'they would be taking it down to the slab, but would keep the pit as it was salvageable,'" she said. The manager told Snyder that the company's goal was to have the new restaurant open by …

The company, which employs mostly college students, will haul away your junk, help you move, or assist with projects around your house.
College Hunks of Atlanta is showing up as one of the most popular listings in the Peachtree Corners Patch directory so Patch decided to investigate. It's a company that will come out to your home and haul away stuff you no longer want, including furniture, appliances, old mattresses (which are hard to get rid of because so many places won't take them), etc. The company also offers a number of other services, like electronics recycling, light demolition, if you are moving, they can help there too. Of course there is a charge but the company will give you a free estimate. It sounds like a neat concept but what makes it one of the top directory listings? Is it the catchy company name or is it because a lot of Peachtree Corners residents have …
