Il Bacio is located on Sidney Marcus across from the Home Depot. It is a really good pizza place. I had always ordered a slice of pizza. It was always very good. Then, I ordered a fish dish one time and it was great. So today I ordered a pasta soup and spaghetti and meatballs. Such a disappointment. The soup was flavorless. Simply boring. The spaghetti and meatballs were okay, well, the pasta was good and the marinara was good but the meatballs were too dense and just not good.
It was really super cold in Atlanta last week, not as cold as up North but cold for us southerners. So, Coop wanted to go off the trail…He is very persuasive.So we walked down to the dam.I am going to go on the other side to see if I can get a better picture. They knocked a hole in the dam so, the creek could flow through. Then I saw the ice on the rock.
We came across this cute bench off the trail. Well the weather people are reporting we might get snow again tonight. Things go crazy if there might be snow or if there is snow. People hoard bread and milk, go figure….I just make sure I get to the liquor store.
It is the Year of the Sheep (or Goat) and we celebrated at the Culture Center of Taipei & Cultural Office in Atlanta.We sampled dumplings and noodles, buns and wraps. They have food stalls all around the perimeter of the Center. Then we went outside for the Lion Dance. But the best part is this….
Then we went to get some Pho…We went to Pho Bac and it is located in a shopping center where they were setting off firecrackers at each place of business. It sounded like it was pouring down rain outside.Then the Dragons were back. They are setting off tons of firecrackers and yet exhaustion set in on this little one. Happy New Year!
I headed out to Cheshire Bridge Road, the most eclectic road in Atlanta. It has strip joints, great restaurants, Cheshire Motor Inn, tobacco stores, gay bars, DUI Schools and one of my favorite comfort food spots, Roxx Tavern. We are freezing in Atlanta, I realize it is colder up North, but, we are spoiled and not used to this. To warm up quickly I ordered one of these. It was delicious. I ordered a cup of the soup special Cheesy Cheddar Broccoli soup It wash’t as smooth and creamy as I would have liked. It was good, but not great (should have ordered the fries, they are great). So I ordered the Turkey Burger, this is the BEST Turkey burger in town. They have so many great things on their menu. Their special today was blackened chicken fettucini alfredo? Yummy. I should try it next Thursday.
