Re: “2015 College Guide

The 2015 College Guide was informative, but a bit lacking. Using quotes from comedians may make the articles more engaging, but not very informative. Next time try some of the Atlanta Academics who also work as comedians (there are several of us). I bet over a decade of experience as a comedian and over two decades as a college professor that I can help you improve this next year.

Re: “How to survive the week on $50

Is this for real? Is he really giving financial survival advice that includes eating out 3X and dropping $7 on a bottle of juice?

Re: “How to survive the week on $50

As a former gsu student on the prowl for free food, you can also find that many multi cultural clubs at gsu such as kusa, vsa, and other ethnic student clubs offer free delicious healthy foods to spread their culture to other folks. They even offer leftovers for you to take home. Not only the ethnic groups but other random clubs if you look somewhat hard enough offer free pizza and other foods on a weekly basis if you just show up to their weekly meetings. If you are looking for free booze and to meet some ladies, you can goto all the fraternity rush events as the fall semester is almost upon us. As long as you can tolerate the try hard "frat" guys, they will shower you with free beer/liquor until they don't even notice you walking out of their party with a fresh 30 rack and a fifth of Jack. And from past experiences I noticed that sneaking into the dining halls are fairly easy, so if you got a friend that is willing to help you out, you can knock out 2 meals by staying in there all day while getting all your studies done with a full stomach. Plus, if you know how to cook just the basics such as chicken and eggs, $10 can carry you the whole week. At kroger, they often have a dozen eggs on sale for $.99 and dozen chicken cutlets for $8.99 and box of insta cook white rice for less than $4 if I remember correctly. Although these foods are not of the highest quality, they provide valuable proteins, carbs, and calories which will keep you surprisngly full and content. This way you won't have to be eating peanut butter and crackers every other night. You just gotta put yourself out there and talk to people that may not be your cup of tea, and you'd pleasantly surprised by what they have to offer.

Re: “How to survive the week on $50

I suspect that this is mostly comically intended but for those looking for real tips, consider these things:
- Cheap pnut butter may be a necessity at time but a few cents more may get you a more nutritious type (nuts & salt, without all the adjuncts of most brands which are laden w/ sugar, emulsifiers, etc.
- Bread is always a better nutritional choice than crackers, esp if one visits one of the many Kroger stores that daily mark down items closing on expiration, where a loaf may be as cheap as 29 cents.
- Buying bottled water ? That's for chumps !
Fill yer own bottle at a sink or water fountain or at least buy some vitamin water, which will offer a surprising number of nutrients for as little as 80 cents.

Re: “How to survive the week on $50

By my count, that adds up to $38.15, plus the cost of the farmers market and whatever you eat for dinner on Friday and Sunday (peanut butter, perhaps?)

I have yet to find a trivia competition anywhere in Metro Atlanta as fierce as the nights we had at Rocky Mountain Pizza Kitchen north of Georgia Tech in the late 90's/early 00's.

Miss one question and you were done at that spot.

Re: “Neighborhood cheat sheet for newbie college students

Thanks for the response Debbie. What I meant was, you went way outside the perimeter on the North side, while only mentioning 2 in-own schools that are barely south of I-20. It's not so much a complaint as a lament for a very common occurrence.

Debbie, are you a saint or a masochist for going out of your way to help enlighten people who clearly didn't read your article, but yet found it necessary to attempt to complain about it?

Re: “Neighborhood cheat sheet for newbie college students

@Henry M Carter Mba: Not at all. I'm saying the opposite. If you read the story, you'll see that we included capitol view in the list because there are two colleges located in that neighborhood. It is the fourth blurb in the list.

@doublephantom: you're absolutely right, which is why the blurb on Tucker says the following: "Tucker's a relatively short drive from Decatur, a neighborhood known for its dining options, including special-occasion treats like Cakes & Ale and No. 246," - The idea was to point out nearby destinations in addition to neighborhood highlights.

Re: “Neighborhood cheat sheet for newbie college students

Greetings Debbie. To get clarity are you saying that Atlanta Technical College and Atlanta Metropolitan College are not relevant enough to be of interest to new students in the area?

Re: “Neighborhood cheat sheet for newbie college students

No. 246 and Cakes and Ale couldn't be more in Decatur, not in Tucker.

Re: “7 late-night food spots

Delia's is so much more than hot dogs! Obviously I love the place.

They have chicken sausage slingers with hot dog fixin's that are very good.

The chicken sliders are so good you might get hooked. I did until I tried other things on the menu.

I am a HUGE fan of the chicken meatball grinder. It's the best Italian meatball ever and it's completely made of chicken! It comes on a big soft Italian bun with mozzarella and fresh basil. But since everything is made to order, you can have it the way you want it.

They even have gluten free chorizo tacos and gluten free specials.

The potato wedges are slop yo mama good!

Every person that I have taken to Delia's has loved it!
