Golf – Sept 2017

“I’m no slouch myself.” “Don’t sell yourself short, Judge. You’re a tremendous slouch!” Golf is a hugely popular sport steeped in history, tradition… and rules, all of which helps popularize movies like Caddyshack or Happy Gilmore. And to make the rest of us who attempt the game feel like morons. I am not an historian,… Read More Golf – Sept 2017

Home of the Braves – Apr 2017

Batter batter batter… We recently toured the brand new Atlanta Braves stadium (SunTrust Park), located OTP (outside the perimeter) in Cobb County, a very short drive from where we live. Very cool! Now this is not Wrigley Field or Fenway Park, but SunTrust Park and The Battery have been built for baseball and making the… Read More Home of the Braves – Apr 2017

Doll House Trail – Jan 2017

No jaw dropping mountain vista, fabulous sunsets or rolling surf views here – give me urban decay any day. If Tom Holland, David Byrne and Howard Finster collaborated to create a hiking trail, this is what it might look like. From Atlanta city proper follow Moreland Drive south through Reynoldstown, East Atlanta and a few… Read More Doll House Trail – Jan 2017

Decorated from stem to stern… Read More Krog Street Tunnel – Jan 2017

Chihuly in the Garden – July 2016

It has been a very long time since I visited any botanical gardens, but the Atlanta Botanical Garden was superb. When you marry natural beauty with art, the result can be spectacular,… Read More Chihuly in the Garden – July 2016

Night in L5P (GA) – June 2015

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… Read More Night in L5P (GA) – June 2015

Antsy McClain (GA) – June 2014

Antsy McClain opened for Tommy Emmanuel tonight at the Variety Playhouse in Little Five Points – two great performances.  Antsy was solo (without the Trailer Park Troubadours) and played about a 30 minute set. Antsy (second from left) is a great performer – and a really nice guy (picture of us with friends and Antsy… Read More Antsy McClain (GA) – June 2014
