Fuego is definitely in the plans.

I'm alone so I'm not sure a carriage ride is in the plans.

Braves are playing the Red Sox.  Are there an great seats to be had cheap? I'm not a huge sports fan..  so I'm not sure about that.

Peachtree plaza and laser show sound like they'd be more enjoyable with someone.... so I'd probably skip those.

Anybody want to meet up at Fuego for dinner and mini DO?

Depending what time your meeting ends in the AM, let's be in touch. I will be around ATL as well.

Planning a summer vacation with the family on lake Lanier (about an hour north of Atlanta) from aug 10 to 21.  We will have a Sefer Torah but may be short a few for minyan.  If anyone is considering being at the lake during this time please contact me here.  By the way the schools in Georgia start sessions that week so the lake should be very quiet.  We are renting a large house in Gainesville

Challah from publix Toco hills was excellent and reasonable at 3.49 for a large loaf. (Costco is cheaper but not as fresh).  Anyone visiting world if coca cola this month Thanks to the Fan Days at the World of Coca-Cola offer, you can text WOCC to 66937 to get two tickets to the World of Coca-Cola for $25 . The offer expires on October 15, 2014.

All in all this has been a fantastic trip.

I've created a wiki with the info that I've found from previous posts. If anyone local(ish) can take a look and update more accurately that would be great!

I am planning a mini 3 day vacation with my wife to the ATL around New Years. Considering staying at the Grand Hyatt or Hyatt Regency. Anyone stayed there? Their normal rates seem pretty inexpensive, is it worthwhile stay-wise and location-wise? Also any other activities or scenic areas that haven't been mentioned in the wiki?

Thanks!

I am planning a 3 day, Sunday to Tuesday night, trip to Atlanta in January, I'YH, no Shabbos involved. Should I stay at the SPG Peachtree hotel or the Marriott Emory that seems closer to shuls and restaurants. I will have a car but I am not sure how far the peachtree is from food and shul.

Why not use Google maps to figure out the distance and just pick which hotel you'd rather stay at? Personally I'd rather use my SPG elsewhere.

If you're concerned about driving time, I'd stay at the marriott emory. Spg in midtown (peachtree) could be 30-45 minutes in Atlanta's notorious traffic. But it's only 10-15 minutes away without any traffic

I think there also is a Marriott at Executive Park, which is as close as you can get to the frum community.
