Travel Thread: What should I do in Atlanta?

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around

I just bought a house in East Atlanta a couple months ago and love it. I lived in West Midtown before that and really enjoyed that area but it’s far too expensive to buy there even though renting wasn’t too crazy.

Definitely recommend looking at stuff on the East side depending on your budget. Grant Park, East Atlanta Village, Kirkwood, and Ormewood are all good areas that have a lot going on and there are good places going on the market every day around there.

Watch out for flipper houses with cheap/shoddy work because there are a TON of those for sale right but it’s pretty easy to spot those the second you walk inside.

That being said, highly recommend King + Duke for a nicer restaurant that's not too over the top price-wise and has a really great menu. Best deviled eggs I've ever had. Not sure about how kid-friendly it is though depending on the age of your kid.

There is a Legoland Discovery Center at Phipps Plaza around there, however.

thanks!

i live in the pittsburgh neighborhood (south of mechanicsville). looking at places in west end, but anywhere within walking distance of a train station (and within my shitty budget) would be a dream. right now i'm just scouring craiglist for a room somewhere.

where are you, mystery meat?

i'm in druid hills right now. not too familiar with the west end or the east-west Marta lines, but i'm confident you can find something for under $650 with the right roommate arrangement. do you know a lot of people here?

not really :oops: i thought i had a good network of friends but it's sort of dissolved/i realized they werent my friends. dating here has sucked too. i was hanging out with and talking to this dude every day and then it just sort of fizzled out and now he won't even respond to messages/DMs. seems like all the gay guys here are quick to ghost you in favor of the next best thing (i'm guilty of this too so :shrug:)

it's been a rough beginning since i moved here last august. i hope things start working out soon.

I think out of those three the beltline will be the first to actually make any progress. The plans for the gulch pretty over the top lol.

I’ve been working downtown for the past couple months and the Super Bowl setup is starting to gear up. There’s like a new massive Bud Light ad put up every day.
