Too Many Peaches

I could never live in Atlanta, because I would explode. I gained 10 pounds in a week. The adorable harley took me to lunch at Mary Mac's Tea Room, where I ate "pot likker", brunswick stew, some amazing fried chicken, and homemade banana puddin' (served warm with lots of nilla wafers, of course)!

For dinner, we went to The Vortex, a really hip bar in the Little Five Points area. We ate soft pretzel spirals, though I passed on the "Grilled Fluffernutter X-treme" sandwich, as well as the "Super Stack Heart Attack Burger", where the buns are grilled cheese sandwiches and topped with two fried eggs. Check out the menu at It's worth reading just for the entertainment value. It spells out that it is an "idiot-free zone", so all the bikers that visit know what etiquette is expected.


The homemade cookies and peanut butter pie were from Watershed, a delightful earthy-crunchy restaurant located in an old gas station. It's co-owned by Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls. It featured healthy southern food - that while good - didn't quite satisfy the grease and fat cooking that I was craving.

I got my sugar quotient fulfilled later when Harley and I went to the World of Coke. The coca-cola museum is more fun that I thought it would be, with samples at the end from 60 different soda flavors from all over the world. Try the Beverly! It's not as bad as I had been led to believe. The Georgia Aquarium and the Atlanta Eagle were also a lot of fun, though I am disappointed I didn't get wrongfully arrested by any hot Georgia policemen.

On my last day in Atlanta, I also got to see my friend Kinky Tim, who likes to lie on the floor and have me spit chewing tobacco all over his t-shirt . Which is a lot of fun. He took me to the Flying Biscuit cafe, where I had the biscuits and gravy and the cheese grits, which were both delicious. The next time I go to Georgia, I am going to bring along a friend, who will do all the eating for me. I really couldn't live very long with that many calories! I can't wait to go back...
