    We will probably just stay downtown. The conference is at the Georgia World Congress Center and will go on all week, so we will probably just hang out around there.

    For those who work near the Battery, I recommend leaving the office as soon as possible. There’s some show with Def Leppard, Poison, Warrant and a handful of other trash band (or as I’m calling it, “Lost Custody/Multiple DUI Fest), that’s making things more congested than a Friday night Braves game.

    Had a mano tonight. On one hand, pasta is way cheaper than at The Americano. On the other hand, nowhere near as good. :twocents:

    Rugby World Cup coming to US in 31 and 33. Atlanta will probably be chosen, so don’t waste your excitement on the soccer thing.

    No. My last few trips to town have been fox brothers, ph'east, eight sushi, Americano, and A mano.

    Do you ever go to Ph'east? Had a few things that were really good.

    We really liked walking up on Friday and getting free wine before dinner. My only complaint is that they took the meatball parm off the menu

    Which pasta did you get? I do feel like their carbonara isn't as good as it used to be. The fusili is always awesome, but it's also super rich.

    yea it was fairly big story at the time. Sure all the news stories would come up on google.

    His Gf struggled with what happened for a while, but now seems to have her bread business taking off.

    So not only are airlines slammed but apparently the parking is too.

    Wife is going on a quick trip and apparently my dumbass decided to suggest she drive vs taking an uber. Literally every lot is full. North or south, hourly, economy, daily.

    How the fuck is it that bad?

    That's where she ended up, but there was a line to get into it. Took time for the shuttle. She's 45 min from departure and just got to the terminal. So probably a bit stressed and I'm nervous as fuck right now b/c I told her to drive. :ohdear::ohdear::ohdear:
    Yeah, it's something I guess to start checking if you're going to drive.

    Yeah I have to drive. Also have a PreCheck screening at 8am. So showing up with no parking at the airport would have really screwed things up.

    there has been airport parking construction for a while now, with accompanying signs warning of said construction.

    can't be getting there at peak hours unless you MARTA.

    International is absurdly easy to get in and out of. There is never traffic.
    Ride share seems to have gotten really flaky. Taking 10-15 minutes to find a driver, 60-75 round trip vs 30 in a lot and it is easier to just drive if there was parking available.

    I mean, you probably only see those when you actually get there. it's not like they have signs up around Edgewood.

    My last few flights have all been international or emergency flights and I had to park hourly for 3 days. Don't remember any parking signs when I flew domestic twice in March

    Park n ticket is a solid choice if you board your dog when you travel. Wag, which is right around the corner, has an agreement with them for $5/day parking when you board your dog. Was working near the convention center for a while and took my dog a couple times a week for daycare. He loved going and their hours for daycare were great (6am-10pm) which was really good when I was working 12+ hour days.

    Mall of Georgia warning!

    If you have kids, keep them with you AT ALL TIMES! I took Charleigh to see Jurassic Park at the imax for an early afternoon show last week. There were fewer than a dozen people in the theater and I had purchased our seats online prior to the showing so we could pick our spot. We arrived at our seats and settled in and after a few minutes a lady came to our seats and told me that I was sitting in her seat (I wasn’t.) I showed her where I purchased the seats on my phone and she tried to convince me I was at the wrong theater and told me to go to the box office downstairs and straighten it out (odd.) I refused and just decided to move and let her have the seat since the theater was practically empty. She was staring at my daughter the entire time acting really weird ans had her phone out the whole time texting someone. After 30 min she got up and left and never came back. After the movie was over we went into the restroom and the woman was in there at the sinks. I looked at her funny I guess and she said, “Oh, my back was hurting so I came into
    to the restroom.” (Again, weird.... who spends and hour and a half in a public restroom because your back is hurting?) She whispered something to Charleigh, which I didn’t hear and kept hanging around and staring at her. Charleigh went into the first stall and I went into the stall next to her and told her NOT to come out until I come out and tell her to. Lady was still in there. I finished and came out... we didn’t even wash our hands, I just grabbed my child and we got out of there. She followed me down the escalator and then went the other way when we went towards the door. It was weird and scary and I have no doubt she was looking to snatch her. Be aware of your surroundings! What was super weird was that she whispered to my kid “Didn’t you see Top Gun in here a few days ago?” We did. Same theater and same seats. Let’s me know these people are canvassing for kids. PAY ATTENTION TO THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU!
