So for my birthday, at the end of August, I'll be in the Atlanta area, specifically in Alpharetta. I was hoping/wondering if any historians in the area would wanna do a meet up? My boyfriend will be working Banghead while I'm there, and I wanna get out and see the city. Which would really be great since I'm planning to permanently move there. Would that be cool with anyone? Do a meet up/show me around the city? I'll provide gas money and you provide the "tour"? *please say yes! please say yes!*

I want a stake-out on the supermarket where Alton Brown films and an autograph. That's what *I* want in Alpharetta. Biggrin

He's a tough one to catch! Although it is pretty neat to go into World Market or whatever, turn a corner just right, and realized you've seen the place on TV before. = P

I live kinda south-west to Atlanta, so I'd be all up for making a day of it. It's going to have a lot to do with money and school around that time though. And I love the Cheesecake Factory idea--it's one of those things that I've always wanted to do, but no one's ever around who wants to do it. = P

the Cheesecake Factory, even tho I've only been to the one in Providence, RI and won't be able to make this meet. Extremely large and varied menu and excellent food (and cheesecake, of course) Dance 4

there's one in Boston too! They have the biggest menu ever, so if you know any picky eaters, I'd dare them not to find something to eat.

I am thirty minutes away from Alpharetta.

Honestly, I don't know that area very well, but if you want some North Georgia mountains and whatnot, I could probably devote some time. Helen, GA is only about two hours (at worst) from Alpharetta.

It's this wonderfully picturesque village all done up in a "Bavarian/German" style. It's a HUGE tourist trap, but....

There is also a cheesecake factory in Alpharetta. I know a lot about it. SQUEE.
