Because I am still fending off this low-grade sickness I returned home last night instead of stopping at My Friend’s Growler Shop to fill up my empties. It was cold outside (or so I thought at the time) and traffic forced me to choose a path to East Atlanta that didn’t make driving to Grant Park / Cabbagetown convenient, which made my decision to go directly home a lot easier.
I spent the night relaxing, finally seeing who won Top Chef New Orleans (again, this was last season of Top Chef).
When I awoke this morning the app I use to check the weather said that it was 11° F outside; by anyone’s standard (at least anyone that I know) this is fucking cold. Therefore I did what any person who didn’t need to be at work at a specific time would do, I turned off the alarm and pulled the covers over my head and returned to sleep. It’s now 8:45am and I’ve eaten breakfast at home and am getting ready to get in the shower so I can prepare to go to work, even though it’s only 12° F outside currently.
If I decide to brave the cold tonight I have to options for entertainment — the monthy meet up of Atlanta CocoaHeads, or Fred Eaglesmith performing at Eddie’s Attic. Either option would be fun, but I may just decide to spend the night at home again. I saw Eaglesmith perform at Eddie’s last year and really had a great time, but the journey from Perimeter Mall to Decatur may prove to be a plan-killer.
A Clean Start I Forgot About Yesterday
I forgot to mention yesterday that I’ve heard about a new in town playhouse that I will be visiting for the first time later this month. Located on Arizona Avenue (near the newish Big Nerd Ranch office that will house tonight’s CocoaHeads Atlanta meet up), Pinch ‘n’ Ouch Theatre puts on live plays. I’ve purchased a ticket to the “Pizza Man” performance on Saturday, January 24th and am looking forward to experiencing new-to-me theater in town.
On that night I might even treat myself to an outing to a new-to-me restaurant as well, Ration and Dram.
If you’ve beaten me to either of these places and would like to give a review in the comments, please do.
