Meet Jesse Altman, the self-made entrepreneur and founder and CEO of Whynatte who has quickly made a name for himself throughout Atlanta. Whynatte is essentially a latte in a can and can be found on shelves all over the state and is served up in virtually all of the hot restaurants and bars as a mixer. From his superstar investors and celebrity fans including Margaret Cho and Peter Farrelly, Whynatte is spreading like willdfiire. Now he plans to start opening new markets with the help of an investment from food and beverage accelerator AccelFoods. But when Jesse Atlman is not busy throwing parties( like his annual Xmas fiesta with a performance by B.O.B) and tweeting to his Whynatte followers, this man about-town loves to enjoy his native stomping ground. Here, he lets us in on his favorite places to nosh, drink and play in ATL.
