    I'll be there from the 7th to the 20th. I'll need shit to do on the weekend, but during the week I'll be in class.

    Well IF I'm ever free I'll hit you up, but I highly doubt it. It'll be like being a newb all over again, and I highly doubt I'll have much time to chill out.

    Let me know. I discovered that Augusta doesn't have a whole lot of anything at night.

    Take the drive to savana it's well worth it the river walk is beautiful. Also Atlanta is worth the trip if you've never been.

    Atlanta & Marietta are both great.

    Took a drive out to Atlanta last night. It was well worth it. Nice area in the suburbs. Only a week left here.

    If you have time for another run to Atlanta before you leave the area have a look at the square in Marietta. And, do grab a meal of some outstanding southern food old school style at the OK Cafe - that place is awesome. I make sure to stop by there for at least one meal whenever business travel takes me to Atlanta.

    Another great place is the Varsity. The Varsity is and has been since 1928, the worlds largest Drive In Burger joint. The Varsity is virtually next door to Georgia Tech.

    The Varsity :: What'll ya have!

    I've been all over the world as a part of my job in Aerospace that past 22 years. London and Atlanta are at the very top of the list of my favorite places to go - above Brussels, Las Vegas, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, etc.

    The old school southern food is the best.
