I will be heading to Atlanta, GA tomorrow for a week....Training seminar for work. :huh:

Anyway, I was wondering if there were any Atlanta, GA people on the board. If so what are some fun or "can't miss" places I should visit weather it be restaurant, tourist attraction, or even just a short drive. What'cha suggest?

Those Georgia Stones (or whatever they're called) are kind of neat, in a way, Mr. damaticous. It's sort of a New World Order Stonehenge type of thing constructed by peeps unknown and for reasons equally mysterious.

When you pee on the stones, you immediately receive powerful cosmic energies from other dimensions which modify your DNA giving you the ability to remote view and enlarge your private parts at will.

Where are you staying? I've been downtown for about 7 weeks, and there's a ton to do. The aquarium is really cool, if the Hawks win tomorrow Lebron will be in town... there are several suggestions and some good info in this thread...

unfortunately I will be north Atlanta in Sandy Springs. :huh: From what I can tell it's just pretty much a business district.

Couldn't tell you what's up there... looks like it's about 20 miles from downtown/Centennial Park. SBK, Simply Red, and dtebbe live here though, so please hold....

Johnny's Hideaway is an excellent cougar bar, and the Clairmont Lounge is a spectacle to behold as well.

Stone mountain is great, especially the hike down. The coke museum is also good. The aquarium has whale sharks and is a must see

I live in Dunwoody, which is right next to Sandy Springs. What types of things are you looking to do? And will you have a car, or are you relying on foot or MARTA?

I will have a car. Pretty much anything. Just looking to get out 1-2 nights during the week and not have to drive that far....if possible.

I was thinking that the coke museum would be pretty neat. Especially since my kitchen is decorated in coke. it'd be neat to get some unique stuff.

I love BBQ and would really like to eat at a neat, and good, bbq joint. Any recommendations?

Yeah, but I am pretty sure that Midnight Vulture is only into herpes-infested wombs and the occasional shemale.

If you like Greek food Avra Greek Taverna is a must. Not far from the Fox Theater, which is a great place to see anything.

About the only "real" BBQ joint I know of (and it's a little upscale) is KC Pit:
http://kcpitbbq.com/home.html

I know the guy who owns it, and believe me, the meat is the real deal. They've also got a pretty nice southern soul food selection too. For the most part most people is GA consider BBQ to be boiled pork chopped up with BBQ sauce on a bun... You go to most "BBQ" places and they smell nice and smokey outside and inside, but the meat tastes like something that was cooked in a crockpot.

YES, Stone Mountain is great and so is the aquarium. Never been to the Coke factory though. Turner Field is a nice stadium.

For BBQ the best I've had in ATL is Fox Bros. Stay the hell away from KC Pit, it sucks.

If you want local food, get some soul food. Mary Macs Tea Room is in midtown, it's the bomb. OK Cafe is pretty good, and Gladis Knight has a fried chicken and waffles place that people seem to love.

The aquarium is awesome, I think it's the largest in the world. You can also tour the CNN center is communist propaganda is more your thing. :)

Braves games are a lot of fun too.

I'm not up on the whole club/nightlife scene, but Atlanta is full of singles so I'm sure it's hoppin.
