I'm at The Phillips Arena in Atlanta for Winter Jam, and I'm totally impressed with how quickly and efficiently this arena filled up with families and youth groups. As a newbie to this area I'm learning the truth behind Atlanta's horrible traffic and the draw of Christian concerts. Granted, this show is a steal at $10 a ticket with speakers and musicians like Skillet and Peter Furler. The security at this venue is top notch, and the employees are polite as all get out. The food is not outrageously priced and the rest rooms are clean. No, you did not read typos. My greatest sticker shock came with the price of parking, there were options with $20 being the most expensive. I parked in a secure lot for seven dollars. I just heard a loud gasp from my East Coast friends...a few in Los Angeles too. Sweet, now there's a little left over for a burger at The Varsity. What'll you have?

The economy could be putting a dent in her wed- ding gifts. The cost of the reception is not expected to change, but what a guest can give could. Summer Krecke from the website www.WeddingChannel.com gives a few guide- lines when giving a wedding gift. These guidelines are based on the guest's relationship with the bride and groom, not what the cost of their plate at the wedding could be. If it's a co-worker-$75-$100; a relative or friend-$100-$125; and a very close friend or relative-$100-$150. This is debatable, of course, but a good place to start.
