Brian and I took a whirlwind trip at the end of July. In fact, it was so whirlwind that I almost forgot to blog about it. Our first stop on the trip was Atlanta. We landed at 9 am and left about 24 hours later to our next destination, but I wanted to share the neat places we were able to check out during our brief stay. We first checked into our hotel which was the Red Roof Inn located in the Northeast section of Atlanta. We chose the location because it was close (within walking distance) of the concert venue we were going to later that night. After setting in, we ate a delicious, sinful lunch at The Vortex Bar and Grill in the Little Five Points neighborhood. I had the Four Horsemen burger and Brian had the Michael Cristo. We shared a pitcher of Georgia brewed beer and left with our tummies full and our heads happy.The Little Five Points neighborhood is full of eclectic and fun shops. If you like records and vintage, this is the place to be. We spent a lot of time (and money) inside Criminal Records. Criminal Records had quite the selection of music and memorabilia. They also had a photo booth which is always fun. Some additional stores we checked out in the area:
Junkman’s Daughter (vintage clothing)
Psycho Sisters (vintage clothing)
Wax & Facts (record store)
Rag O Rama (vintage clothing)
The Clothing Warehouse (vintage clothing)
We also stopped and had a couple beers at The Porter which is a great bar, They have over 800 beers to choose from!That evening we went to see Faith No More play outdoors at The Masquerade. It was a great show.After the show, we headed to a nearby bar, The Bookhouse Pub, which is a must see for any of you Twin Peaks fans out there. We had another round of drinks and a late dinner. I had shrimp and grits which turned out to be the best shrimp and grits I’ve ever had. Yum!
Atlanta is a huge city and we had fun in our little section over the 24 hours we spent there. Thanks Atlanta for having us!
Next stop on the trip-Asheville!
