So, I’ve started to go out a little this past week and a half. I went to Wal-Mart last Friday and cleaned up (as usual). I’ll probably be back there before weeks end, because in true brran1 fashion, I forgot something and remembered that I didn’t have it hours after I arrived back at the apartment.
Prior to my getting off work and braving Atlanta traffic to go to Wal-Mart, my coworkers and I checked out a restaurant in Midtown called The Spotted Dog for lunch. The food was ok, but it definitely leaned towards the gourmet side. Also, the service was horrible. We ended up getting back to the office late because it took them almost 45 minutes to bring it out.
Saturday, my cousin picked me up and took me to Atlantic Station. She showed me around after a brief stop in “Too Trendy-Ville” aka H&M. I do believe that that was my first AND last time going into that store. Atlantic Station does have a great atmosphere. For all my Baltimoreans out there lemme give you a comparison. Atlantic Station is a nicer, newer and larger version of The Avenue at White Marsh with virtually no white people.
On Sunday, Cousin, her boyfriend and his roomie picked me up so that we could go bowling before the game. We ended up lost somewhere out in East Atlanta, so we 86’ed bowling and headed straight for a seafood/sports bar spot called Barnacles. We chilled outside before the game started and I ordered Buffalo Chicken Strips and the Fried Shrimp Platter. It was good, but the Buffalo Chicken wasn’t hot enough for me. After chilling out on the patio, we went inside to check out the game. The ordered a round of Long Island Iced Teas and I can definitely say that it took me every bit of 45 minutes to drink that. LOL I’ll say it now and I’ll say it again. I’m NOT a drinker.
Random Thought of the Moment: “What can I say? I like chicken.”
