Re: “How to drink at six breweries in four days

I suggest paying a bit more attention on the tours you attest to not going on. There are a ton of misconceptions in this post.

Re: “Summer Road Trip: Fireworks and loathing at South of the Border

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.

Re: “Summer Road Trip: Digging for gold records in Dahlonega

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.

Re: “Summer Road Trip: Spirituality on a budget in South Georgia

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.

Re: “Summer Road Trip: Spirituality on a budget in South Georgia

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.

Re: “Which summer movie is right for you?

How is the stupid rap "music" version of The Great Gatsy supposed to be classy?

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.

Re: “... Sip through summer

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.

Be sure to sear the meat to seal in the juices!
