Living here in the Wiregrass, there's not a lot of access to good chefs.  We have two, maybe three restaurants here where you can get a meal that you're still talking about days later.  I was in Atlanta this weekend helping my brother move.  I know that's everybody's favorite pastime, but he treated us to a couple of great places in return.  He's moving to Roswell, which is somewhere I've only been through, not to.  When we drove "downtown", I knew this was a place to Snaggs' liking.  Blocks of restaurants, shops pubs and breweries.  A ton of outside dining and it seemed like everybody had their pups with them.  I'm going to be visiting my brother a lot in the future.

Hit a place called Salt Factory Pub.  I believe they have 3 in the Atlanta area.  Started out with a cold, tasty IPA from a local brewery. (Forget the name) I went with the cajun flavors, starting out with Louisiana Egg Rolls, which have chicken, andouille sausage, charred corn and spinach, with a creole honey mustard sauce.

The entree was Pan Crisped Trout with andouille sausage, potato hash, green beans/sliced bell pepper, all covered in a crawfish monica sauce.  That was my first experience with Monica and she knows how to please.  A white wine, heavy cream (Mmmm...) sauce with creole seasoning. 

I'm just all about experiencing new flavas prepared by a great chef.  As I said, that's few and far between in these parts.  I shouldn't complain, we still have a Shoney's.

Well, in many ways, the Big Boy never left, sir. He's always offered the same high-quality meals at competitive prices.

Fuck Atlanta and all the Georgia fans it has.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shitty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Yep, I had to put up with quite a few FUGA jack asses this weekend too.

We have a Salt factory in Woodstock. Right next to it is a local place called REEL. The chef creates some very good dishes. The Swordfish is excellent. If you get a chance, visit downtown Woodstock. it is an open concept area (drinking while walking) and has many good places with a local brewery. (Reformation)

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Love that kind of stuff.  Don't think I've ever been to Woodstock, but I'll definitely give it a shot.  Plus, I've never had swordfish either.  Had my first Tripletail filet yesterday, which was pretty dang skippy.
