Since 2019, the number of people who work remotely has tripled, according to the US Census Bureau. That means a whole bunch of us are working from places like our sofas, cafes, and maybe (HR don’t read this) at the store while we get the remainder of our errands taken care of. According to CoWorkingCafe, there are actually a selection of cities that are more ideal than others for remote workers.

The company studied all the options based on multiple criteria. “Our analysis rated US cities across 10 metrics relevant to remote workers’ needs-including local internet speed and coverage; availability of coworking places; and cost of living,” CoWorkingCafe’s study states.

Based on those factors, the best city in the US for remote workers was determined to be Atlanta, with a score of 70.77 out of 100. “Atlanta is the most attractive city for remote workers in 2022, ranking first across several metrics, including coworking and public Wi-Fi density,” the study determined.Overall, cities in southern states ranked most in the top ten, with cost of living being a large factor in that ranking. Above, you can check out the best cities for the remote work lifestyle. Is your city listed?

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
