I've always been fond of Ted's Montana Grill. There's a location near the CNN Center. Their bison burgers are great.

 

The aquarium is quite impressive.

My friends went the the aquarium yesterday. Said it was amazing.

Today we hit Fox Bros BBQ (delicious) and the college football HOF (awesome)

Atlanta is a cool city. I've noticed the homeless are a lot more pushy here than in Baltimore. Maybe southern hospitality has emboldened them? Not sure.

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

Could be. And could be that I use it daily and still am such a nub that I wouldn't even know where to start in a new city lol. All hypothetical and I'm sure Stoner loves this lol.

 

Well his name is Stoner...

Isn't it?   We always get a couple pounds of their pulled pork to freeze and take home...

I had the pulled pork and rib platter, my friends got the brisket and we shared.  Everything was really good.

 

As for Suntrust, I like it.  They are building up that area with a bunch of bars and restaurants.  The area itself is really really nice.

 

But it's too far from the city.  It's literally like driving from Baltimore to Columbia (or even Laurel) to see the Orioles.  I get why they did it, for money, but it just seemed weird.  The Angels play in a similar type area but they've always been in Anaheim, so it made sense.

 

Anyway, the park is nice, but I have to imagine that anyone trying to get there by first pitch from the city on a week night has to fight a ton of traffic.

 

Also, one of my drivers told me there are over 60 streets in Atlanta called "Peach Tree" -- must get confusing.  If I ever lived there, my goal would be to live at "Peach Tree and Peach Tree"

The new ballpark is right on their Beltway ("the Perimeter")... it's just that the diameter of it is bigger... they moved there because the burbs is most of where their fans come from... (not approving of it, just explaining)... the burbs are also where most people work too...

 

And Peachtree is ONE WORD, you noob!
