haha, no I meant for your work... just seems like an odd move unless they had some great deal on the new building. Its like moving from Suwanee to Duluth haha. Which is actually what my company did now that I think about it

My dad just drove 17 hours to get home from all that crazy Atlanta traffic last night. He lives 45 minutes away typically. Those roads are CRAZY!!!!

so what's good in atlanta these days? any area within a mile of MARTA that I could get a house with a garage (preferably 2-3 car) for <400K? I'd rather not drop big cash in atlanta right now

^ hmmm, i think you'd be lookin' at the southside or somewhere transitional on the eastside for that. may be a renovation opportunity somewhere near Candler Park or East Lake.

yeah, a house with a three car garage ITP is going to cost you a shit ton. Why do you need such a bigass garage? It's your decision of course but that will SEVERELY limit your options.

Awesome weather lately, just had to take some pics from my condo/building

I work to fund my hobbies, which are car and motorcycle racing. I currently have an RV where I store my 3 motorcycles, my car, and my gf's car. When I move, I won't have a commute so I'll probably switch to truck and trailer, and a race car. I also am not a huge fan of condo living. I do it now and I miss having my own space and not wasting $7200/yr in HoA

That's the most giant RV I have ever heard of haha, jesus christ. It can fit two cars inside it??

And my HOA is about $3600 a year and definitely not a waste by any means. Includes insurance, internet, water, sewer, garbage, gym, pool, grill, home theater, maintenance, concierge, landscaping etc.

But to each his own, I loathe shit like yard work and working on shit around the house, and definitely dont mind paying for convenience, but if you are into that stuff I guess you could view it as a "waste". I had the whole big ass house (3 floors, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, big ass yard etc.) in Raleigh and I was fucking miserable. I finally saw the light of day when I caught myself buying furniture not because I needed it but because I "had a room to fill". When I sold it and moved down here in threw in 90% of it in with with my sale price to the new owners. Most liberating day of my life haha.

oh, i can see my poor punctuation. the RV holds 3 motorcycles, it's 32 feet long. my condo in dc i still pay for insurance and don't use any of the facilities besides parking. the fact that i don't get any equity or tax write off for the HoA is what pisses me off

insane turn out at the Dogwood Festival this year. I think everyone was so tired of the long winter that they just went apeshit. The doggie olympics were awesome.

Was in Atlanta the other weekend visiting a hometown friend of my wife's and here are some thoughts:

- Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream is fucking delicious
- Monday Night Brewery is a cool spot and makes some yummy IPAs
- Star Provisions is great (and that whole little area)
- West Egg is overrated...worst meal we had the whole weekend
- The AMC movie theater at Phipps Plaza is fucking phenomenal...that's all

^ oh word, didnt know that

^^ actual Atlanta, as in the actual city of Atlanta, is freaking awesome. Amazing restaurant scene, great art scene, very walkable, great bars, and Piedmont Park is the shit, but so many people come to "Atlanta" and are really out in the burbs which could pretty much be anywhere else in the country, nothing special.

This weekend in Atlanta...
-Went to the Renaissance Faire at Fairburn, really neat.
-Went to a comedy show at "Uptown". Typical black comedy, but some laughs were had.
-Ate dinner at Izumi in Woodstock. Portion sizes.... Food was awesome though!
-Also, had "The Burger" at Holeman and Finch....WORTH IT!

The peeps I was with made it sound like the opposite. They made it sound like "central" downtown Atlanta was shit-tastic. They kept going back to, "if something doesn't work out downtown, they just abandon and it move it somewhere else and leave decrepit holes in downtown"...which was brought up by the Braves stadium moving...but then they gave other examples.

It seemed like (and this could be wrong due to my rudimentary knowledge of the city itself)...they liked the areas that surrounded the central downtown area and avoided the actual downtown at all costs (would West Egg, Provisions, and Monday Night Brewery be "downtown"?? or on the outskirts?).

Anyways...just relaying my experience.

when I said the actual city of Atlanta I meant the actual city. Which includes downtown, which is pretty meh (a lot of this due to awful architecture which destroyed any street life, led to crime issues, etc) and is basically just used for conventions now. But it is on the upswing. Other areas that are in the city but are technically not "downtown" are awesome, such as Midtown, the Highlands, Inman Park, West End, etc. All the places you mentioned are in the city but are not "downtown".
