The day after the day after Mike's Day
I wasn't able to post yesterday but Mike's day was GREAT!! We went into Atlanta and started our day off with some chili cheese dogs at the Varsity. Now, I am NOT a chili cheese dog person...i like my hotdogs plain and dry...so I got the burger. BIG MISTAKE! The burgers are NOT their specialty and it was obvious...but, after one bite of Mike's chili cheese dog, I was convinced...they were THE BEST CHILI CHEESE DOGS EVER!!! and the onion rings! oh my! But, the coolest thing was the atmosphere. You walked up to the counter that had about 20ish cashiers ready to take your order. After they got one person their food, they'd start yelling "What'll ya have??" in an auctioneer voice over and over until someone stepped up to order. With 6-7 yelling at one time, it was CRAZY!! Definately a place to go when visiting! Next up was the Underground. We were disappointed with this...it is a mall that is underground but it really wasn't very interesting...in the same area, however, is the World of Coke museum (Coca-Cola). Now, that was interesting! Another good attraction when visiting. After the Coke musuem, we got back in the car and went "exploring" some more...Mike LOVES just getting in the car and driving until we find something and there are always interesting things along the way. We found an ESPNZone...if you have never been to one, it was REALLY neat! The bottom floor was a restaraunt w/TVs everywhere. Every sports game on television was shown. The top floor was all sport oriented arcade type games. There was a game for any sport you could think of: golf, soccer, basketball, horse races, boxing, ice hockey, bowling, etc. By the time we finished at the ESPNZone, it was time for dinner, so we changed into nicer clothes and ate dinner...man was it good! The evening was topped off with a movie...all in all, it was a GREAT DAY! Yesterday was an experience. To make it short, First Baptist Church of Sunny Side is your good ole' back woods, country church!!
