Six local businesses have deals featured on the popular website.
Scoutmob is all about good deals, and there are currently six Tucker businesses on their website. First up is the Paramount on Idlewood Road, the only independently owned coffee shop in town. "It isn't your typical busy, loud hub besieged by over-caffeinated people. In fact, it's pretty much the exact opposite: comfortable, quiet, almost like your own personal library," according to Scoutmob. Patch staffers use it quite frequently too. Then there is Coco Cabana, a lively Cuban restaurant that opened last year in Northlake. Scoutmob seems to approve: "If you're somehow not convinced by the crisp, sweet plantains, just check Chef Joel's credentials: we hear he's cooked for both the pope and Castro himself.

Promo film features Tucker, Smoke Rise, and Stone Mountain.

It includes quite a bit of Tucker, Smoke Rise, and Stone Mountain. See anyone you know? Footage of Tucker Patch's editor on his laptop computer at Sweet Dee's Bakeshop seems to have ended up on the cutting room floor. Oh well... Thanks to Tiffany Nelms of Virtual Studio Innovations for sending in the video.

This week, it's all about cupcakes.
Judging from the steady stream of customers coming into Sweet Dee's every day, it's safe to say this new bakeshop on Main Street in Tucker is already a hit. It's a simple, clever concept. Cupcakes, freshly made, and lots of them. Just looking at the things in the display cabinet is a joy in itself. Employee Sheila Adams kindly wrote down the list of flavors for me - Red Velvet, Lemon, Lemon Strawberry, Chocolate Butter Cream, Vanilla Salted Caramel, Midnight Chocolate - you get the idea. There's a cupcake of the day too. Today's is Blueberry Ricotta and a coffee one thrown in for good measure. Besides all these tempting desserts, Sweet Dee's has coconut or carrot cake, cookies, brownies, and ice cream, as well as espresso and regular …
