It must feel so good to apply hip political correctness to what is, essentially, a fun place to pee. South of the Border is just a bit of Americana. If it's outlived its cultural relevance, that's only because no-one has figured out a more profitable replacement. If you don't care for it, by all means do avoid Niagara Falls and the remains of Rt 66.
Many years ago, as a result of every other room being full, I spent the night in one of the Honeymoon suites. We had a sort of Tiki-themed suite, and it was like waking up in the Tonga Room, in San Francisco. The irony of spending the night with my college roommate, Pete, it didn't take one little bit from the romance of that bizarre interlude.
Dahlonega and Lumpkin County are ready for the Atlanta hipsters of west midtown and Decatur to open up even more eateries, shops and entertainment. The Napa Valley of North Georgia y'all.
had a mixed experience a few years ago. when i first visited they weren't accepting guests, so i stayed at Jekyll. returned a few days later and loved it -- the small lake, the group dinners and the glass house are pretty special. i was happy to do a 'daily chore' like at other hostels (traditionally) but i felt pressured to do more around the place with clean-up work rather than enjoy it as a vacation/retreat. perhaps that was because of the couple managing it at the time.
Lawd, please stop advertising the hostel. It's a sacred space.
one addendum: take the golden isles highway to brunswick rather than I-16. it's like going back in time (in a good way). it's a heck of a beautiful drive.
How is the stupid rap "music" version of The Great Gatsy supposed to be classy?
Absolutely fabulous. My summer is planned.
Dahlonega is a great little town!
this doesn't even show all the great things to do in that town. not to mention it's suggesting everyone an hour north of atlanta is a simple-minded redneck. maybe next time spend more than a day and a half and actually have an open mind.
Yo, did you guys hit up Buckhead after all those cold Miller Lites Bro?
Miller Lite? Good call BRO! Great brew.
I'm excited to see the Sierra Nevada beers starting to show up in Atlanta in cans, so Torpedo would be a great hoppy and canned choice.
I'm also fond of Brooklyn Summer Ale as an easy-drinking beer for the heat. Not a boring lager, not so heavy that you bonk after a couple.
No David you are dumb and wrong.
Be sure to sear the meat to seal in the juices!
okay time to cut it back. one or two GLASSES of wine at dinner. not bottles.
That headline picture of the people in the pool is cool.
Replace the Hell or Highwater with Bitter American.
Maybe they want to workout outdoors in the summer to bleach their lungs with the abundant supply of Ozone in our summer air.
Actually winter and fall are not bad times to work out, cooler, not as much pollen or ozone.
Btw what's a burpee?
interval training FTW, but why would anyone ever exercise outside during an atlanta summer? are you crazy?
ye who disliked, reveal thyself and justify thy opposition! how can you possible LIKE atl summers?
