Quest for the BEST – Chicken Wings

Sobban 3I read on Thrillist the best chicken wings in Atlanta were at Sobban. So I went and tried them and they are excellent. They are big wonderful tasty bites of joy! But I decided to try a few other places, so, I went to the Rusty Nail next. Wings RNThese were very good, just different, the kind you expect when you order wings. (side note, I had the Gumbo to start, that was out of this world GREAT).

The Quest continues, on to Downwind Restaurant at Peachtree DeKalb Airport. I usually get the cheeseburger here, it is just that good, one of the best in the city IMHO. Wings DW 1These were so crispy and then juicy and I would order them again. It didn’t hurt that it was a beautiful day.Wings DW 2My neighbors told me of a place I need to try and I love Hooters, wings that is! Let me know if you have a favorite. I would love some new ideas!

Sobban – Korean Southern Diner – Yum!

IMG_3940I was going to do a Quest for the Best – Chicken Wings, but I realized today, that would be too difficult. There are too many styles that are equally good, but so different. Thrillist came out with a list of the best wings across the United States. So, they listed Sobban in Atlanta as some of the BEST, I had to go try.

Sobban 1They put these cards on the tables to explain different Korean dishes. I have been here a few times and I adore their “Hot” chicken sandwich. I had to try the  wings!Sobban 3That piece of okra, awesome! The pickles so very good! The wings okay they were huge massive meaty bites of joy. I ate two and was getting full, I had ordered the Sloppy Joe sandwich too, so, I stopped at two (I took the other two home for dinner).

Sobban 5Sweet Potato Chips so yummy, the sandwich is very very very good but the wings were a tad better. Oh my waiter, Jonathan was outstanding, as have been all the people in the restaurant.

This place is so very great and I hope you can try it!

Fall Festival on Ponce!

The Fall Festival on Ponce is an excellent Staycation idea for the whole family.IMG_3689They had so many rides and bouncy things and very happy children. There were a lot of super nice vendors with all kinds of artwork.IMG_3684It helped that the weather was super nice.

We saw two other King Charles Spaniels today also.IMG_3686They were tricolor King Charles. Oh and this cool artist I met told me the King Charles Spaniel is the most painted dog in history, because Kings owned them and all had portraits of themselves painted.

They had a few food trucks too.IMG_3697This festival is held in the fall and in the spring. There are a tone of fall festivals for you to enjoy during your Staycation.
