Last weekend we had a fabulous night in Little Five Points (L5P), a little kitschy, Bohemian neighborhood just east of downtown Atlanta. L5P is home to some really eclectic shops (Junkman’s Daughter, Criminal Records) and restaurants such as the Vortex, Cameli’s Pizza and our destination – Fox Brothers BBQ. This was our first time at Fox Bros, but let me tell you – best brisket I have ever had. There is a definite Texas vibe to this place, and perhaps that helps to explain their depth with brisket. Wow. Expect a wait.
The L5P neighborhood is really great, with narrow, quiet streets and really cute craftsman style homes. You don’t feel like you are a mile or two from downtown ATL when you are roaming around this area. This is just a great neighborhood.
And the real reason we were there in L5P was because we had tickets to see Tommy Emmanuel at the Variety Playhouse! If you have never seen Tommy play, do yourself a favor and check out his schedule – see if he is playing anywhere near you. If not, check him out on YouTube or wherever. He is an insanely gifted guitarist from Australia and plays in concert as a soloist for 2-3 hours; you are totally entertained the entire time. He is simply amazing!
