Saturday in the City
The Buckhead Diner was featured on Atlanta Eats, the show on Peachtree TV. They call it a legendary Atlanta restaurant. Like me you probably remember when it was new.
Friday night we ate at El Porton next to the stinky Kroger.
Was on the run all day Saturday: took M to the Avalon, then an hour at the post office packaging and mailing 5 packages. Wendy's, three thrift stores, RaceTrac, and a haircut.
Came home to open the package of 5 bobbleheads. Hank the Brewers Ballpark Pup looks a lot like Barney.
Then I drove Ceil down to the old Sears building on Ponce, which will be reopening soon as the Ponce City Market. Then over to Howell Mill to eat at Yeah Burger, which really hit the spot. Mine had onions, tomato, and a fried egg.
As always downtown traffic was gridlocked - on and off the interstates. Much worse than around the new Braves stadium, where cars were speeding along at 80 mph. Gassed up on the way home while Ceil ran into the Trader Joes at Pine Straw Plaza.
Sunday: Headed to Macon for my dad's Monday heart cath. Will drives up to Clemson to golf with cousin Ben. Ceil is driving over to Athens to deliver some needed art supplies
