I visited and was really tempted by a couple of the more grown up flavors. The ginger/lavender had a great flavor and absolutely sublime. However, I was totally blown away the by Coconut/Japlapeno, the rich creamy coconut with the hotness of the jalapeno kicking in at the end.
Yeah, it was incredible. I've done it a couple of years now and it's amazing how it's catching on, but the size is bringing about a lot of other considerations. Yeah, the current starting/staging area is just too small, Maybe like someone suggested the new 4th Ward Park or even Piedmont Park. Yes too, the band is great at the beginning, but most of the route was silent, maybe more bands, or have bands playing along the route.
Hmmm, just noticing there seems to be rather a lack of diversity in the issue. So there there seems to be NO african-american writers in Atlanta?? No one over 30 - it seems once again CL is going only with what they know, the intown hipster crowd.
Yeah I actually stopped by with a friend on Sat to see what it was about, this obnoxious guy at the park deck entrance asked us if we were here for the VIP event? When we said we were there for "Party on Ponce" he didn't know what we were talking about, then insulted us further by asking "are you staff?"
We self parked, and then walked up to find out the tickets were $90. We asked just what that covered and were told well "appetizers and 'some" bands" but not the cash bar. We talked to some other people in line to find out what the deal was, and they said they'd gotten free tickets and were told it was mainly a VIP event for real estate and banking people and they'd been given free tickets.
Horace Burgess is famous for buildlng the world's tallest tree house in TN so he could be "closer to god", they also talk about the Biltmore House, which is actually the addition/condos next to the Biltmore Hotel in Midtown. The code translates to "Stories" so have to wonder if there's something way up on the roof there at the Biltmore House that looks like a UFO, with some sort of book/story attached to it?
The RSNQHDR I thought might just be a letter replacement code. I think it is, the (Not lower) is a clue, so if you go one higher on each letter it spells the word.
