haha jk - it's pretty cool. this place puts raleigh to shame and all, but the commute must be ridiculous

The Elbow Room is littered with the remains of the waitstaff from the Fish everynight.

it's about 4 hours to Savannah, 5 hours to Charleston, and 6 hours to Destin, FL

the commute is all about where you live and where you work...some people insist living in the burbs so they can have a dirt-cheap big house and their commute sucks ass...those that reverse commute never have much of a problem at all

so, has anyone here had aftermarket car audio work done here? I'm looking for a shop (not Best Buy, Circuit City, etc) that can do a quality job on head unit/speakers for a Porsche 944.

I wouldnt go to all that many games, so I was thinking of 2 tickets for every home game split between 4 people. So everyone would get 2 tickets for 2 games... something like that

Eh, it's alright. I like Pricci (Right down the street closer to Piedmont) a lot better. But you really can't go wrong with the Buckhead Life Group.

if you're in the apts across the street that have the courtyard in the middle - that's where my pals used to have a studio.

Inman park festival is next weekend - always a good time

the Tour de Georgia finishes in Atlanta this weekend...they have a 7.4 mile course through the city they lap 9 times...start finish is in Centennial Olympic Park and travels thru Ga Tech, Va Highlands, Downtown, midtown...always fun to get out on a nice day and watch the riders fly by

I think the Elbow Room is quickly becoming my favorite regular bar... nice people, good cheap food, great specials (50 cent slices of pizza M-F from 5pm-7pm)

Pharr Rd. Right across from the Fish Market. Little green house-like building, really cool laid back place. Great food for a bar.

Just like any city, there are bad sections and good sections.

I'll check with J to see if he knows anything about the Buckhead "revitalization"
They need to do something with that strip - but I don't see why they would take down what's there and thriving behind it.

hmm, maybe the Va Highlands? We used to go all over the place on Thurs nights in grad school - nothing spectacular that I can remember, but we always had 20-30 people at a minimum, so we always made it a good time.

my apt here is the same size as my one in San Diego (god it hurts every time i write that and realize i'm in atlanta instead) - except it's a one bedroom instead of a 2BR.

^^^ i've tried, so hard, to find a good thursday night spot in atlanta. i mean, i like to get hammerd on thursdays, but i've never found anywhere consistent to do it. the bars in the highlands are typically ok though - hand-in-hand, if the weather is nice, will have a decent amount of people. as will atkins park and moes and joes. but they clear out pretty early, by midnight. in midtown, twisted taco sometimes has a lot of folks on thursdays, but it's rather hit or miss. i normally head there after drinking in the highlands if i'm really drunk and feeling frisky, but i alwys go home disappointed

I'm thinking Highlands might be best/closest to what he's used to - the ability to roam between bars. Everything else seems so spread out. he's interested in Buckhed too though....

also, anyone want to join?

Fat Matt's! The ribs are gangsta. I made the mistake of going to the chicken shack side once, though, and that was the most painful dining experience of my life. dude took about 20 minutes to scoop me up some mac and cheese, fries, and 3 pieces of white meat.

I always take my out of town friends to clermont and then majestic late night. it don't get any realer than that.
