The only running my ankle affords these days is running late. And I am…

Have a great weekend all!

    Went to El Super Pan at The Battery last night – it was tasty. There are plenty of restaurants to go to over there – we need to do that more often. And – the whole place was much busier than I ever expected -so maybe Cobb County isn’t losing money on the whole venture.
    If you spend $50 or more anywhere in the Battery, they validate your parking – so that is a nice thing. We ran into a couple friends we hadn’t seen in a long time, told them about that parking deal so they paid for our beer and they still saved money (its $20 if you don’t get it validated)

    Billy Currington was good, but he only played for a little over an hour – that was very disappointing. Now I know the tickets weren’t expensive ($50 or so) but still……..
    The opening guy was good too- he played about 45 minutes.

      Good to know about how the validation works. I paid $20 in parking to see Deep Purple at the Roxy last month. They at least played 90 minutes, which was a little short, but they are aging, so I can respect that. The Roxy cheaped out on seating, it was all folding chairs. But it’s fast and easy to get a beer there, so it is a decent venue. Leaving wasn’t a problem either.

      Apart from The Roxy there’s no place there that is a draw enough to get me to the Battery outside of a show, but I’ll keep that parking option in mind. I’d way rather spend $20 on food and/or beer any day versus parking. 🙂

        the Roxy seating is interesting – when we went last year – upstairs was bleacher seating in the back (for free).
        Now its all reserved seats upstairs (and slightly nicer seats than the bleachers). Downstairs was all general admission – standing. My back is too old to stand for hours – so now I know I have to pay the extra for reserved seats (which we had last night)

        And – how hard is it to spend $50 anymore? I think you can combine 2 different places to make the $50 as well – just show your receipts to the second place.

          You can’t hardly do anything without spending $50 these days. Get a tank of gas, or pick up 5 items at the grocery store and you’re pretty much at $50. Hell, I got a bacon, egg, and cheese bagel at Emerald City and that was over $11 with tip. It was a tasty bagel, but damn, I don’t want to have to refi my house to have one.

          I want the 25 cent candy bars from my youth back again!

        Lurker, me too! I LOATHE paying for parking! I will do anything to get out of it. Shoot, in that case, even if I weren’t hungry? I’d order some To Go meals at a restaurant that I could have the next day. I’d still have to pay the $20, but at least I’ll have gotten something for it!

          Oh, sweet! That’s a *great* idea. Sure beats chugging an extra beer or two to get over the $50 threshold and then risking a drive home. I’ll keep the to-go food option in mind. Clever!
