Quick Weekend Atlanta Trip...Need Ideas/Review of My Ideas

wkbdgrl1223 | May 23, 2011 12:15 PM

Hello Everyone:

We will be in Atlanta this weekend (Memorial Day Weekend) and would love some input/further ideas!

We arrive on Saturday and are going to The Varsity for lunch...yes, I know how most people feel on this but it is a request of others in our party. What is the must-eat item here? Chili-Cheese Dogs, Onion Rings, Frosted Orange...anything else?

Saturday night we are going to the Braves game so will eat at Turner Field. Any stands at the Field that serve anything tasty?

Sunday we will be eating breakfast at the hotel (Hilton Garden Inn Downtown – where the Legal Seafood Is). We will then either go right to the CNN Center or stay near the hotel and do the Park/World of Coca Cola. So, I would like to have lunch ideas for both areas. I don’t really want to eat lunch at CNN Center but will if one of the restaurants/fast eats there is a must do. After lunch, will plan on going to the Bank of America Tower and whatever else we don’t do in the morning. Thinking of either Glady’s Knight Chicken & Waffles or Mary Mac’s Tea Room for dinner…how does everyone feel about these locations? Are either of them worth our time or are their better places to go to?

Also, any recommendations around these areas for ice cream or cupcakes would be appreciated!
