a couple friendly places in atlanta
i'm in atlanta for the midyear criminology meetings, doing a bit of the society's business and scouting the location for november. i've got two recommendations already:
for good southern cooking, i can endorse agnes and muriel's -- the chicken, ribs, meatloaf, fried tomatoes, greens, and banana pudding are all highly recommended.
after dinner, gary lafree and i wandered over to blind willie's on highland avenue. the vibe was warm and the house band was tight -- blues n' reverb, but little else to clutter up the sound. plus, some fine dancing and friendly staff. both spots definitely merit return visits this winter.
