I really got to enjoy driving the machine all over Atlanta with one of my good friends from San Diego, Greg. I finished a trip on Wednesday and I picked him at the airport once I landed from finishing up a four day. At first, we were planning to head out to either Cancun, Belize, or somewhere random, but after deciding that it would be much more economical to just hang out in Atlanta, we did just that.
The following morning, we woke up rather late, but planned to just roam around Atlanta. Had some breakfast, hung out till lunch and just discussed our alternative Atlanta vacation. Nothing really too much besides go out and hit the local bars, eat at different Atlanta restaurants, hit up the sights and that's about it. We ate at Five Guys which proved to have some great tasting hamburgers and fries seasoned with Cajun spices. Definitely a little more on the expensive side of things but if you consider that their patties are almost a 1/4 pound each and that the regular hamburger has two of these, its not that bad. We roamed around a little more until it was time to watch the Atlanta Thrashers play against the New York Islanders (NHL). The game was pretty exciting as both teams scored a lot of points (8 total + one in overtime) and then hit up Buckhead. To make that long story even shorter, we went to one bar where I was going to meet up with a friend but he wasn't there, so after a while we went to Moondogs where we met some random Filipinos who ended up having ties to some of our friends from high school! Small world, but it was cool to see some friends with connections as it always proves that it really is a small world. That was Thursday.
Friday included us waking up late again, hitting up Shane's Ribshack and then hiking up Stone Mountain. That was the highlight there really as we just burnt the time at Barnes and Nobles and driving around even more. Saturday was a chill day trying to eat at the The Flying Biscuit Cafe. We had to go to 2 of them finally reaching the second and still having to wait about 20 minutes in line. Still good times though.
We played a little bit of some Pixel Junk Monsters on PS3 and called it night. Oh yeah, I also forgot to mention that I leveled up a female Blood Elf Paladin to level 3 almost reaching to 4 on World of Warcraft and that's when I threw in the towel.
Now I'm on a 4 day trip just wondering what the heck I'm going to do with my car and everything else in the next few days. Oh the joys.
