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 http://www.thevortexbarandgrill.com/menus/WebMenu.pdf. 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...
