Taylor, I always enjoy your articles but I have to disagree with the No. 1 rule concerning wine. You kinda touched it but to me, as a wine geek and fine dining manager, the ultimate rule is "does this wine taste good to me?" Wine is life and being so it is personal. Who are we to tell someone that there favorite wine sucks? I know you feel the same but it should have been the number 1 rule.
most of us old atlantans remember a weekly schedule of places to go. stein on mondays, starbar tuesdays, mjq wednesdays, highlander thursdays, then the hours get cut back. most of us see it as a way for the city to make money for underground. only problem is that the clubs suck and they are downtown. where is the incentive to go to a crappy theme club with overpriced drinks and bad musical acts? is there a future(again and again) for underground? probably not. pablo is right, it could work if there were independant clubs that created an honest identity. what we have now is chuckee cheese for meatheads from the burbs. i'm torn because as someone who was actually born in atlanta and has seven generations of family here, i don't give a ratt's ass about the success of underground. but i also want to be proud of my city and have a multi facet option for all people, residents and tourist alike, to have a good time in the anta
