A New Trail to The Four Seasons Food Truck

This was a concrete trail, in midtown Atlanta.IMG_3724I parked in a parking deck, where the CB 2 (Crate and Barrel 2) resides. IMG_3740Then out to the street, Crescent Avenue. This is a road of really good restaurants. IMG_3739     IMG_3735     IMG_3732     IMG_3728     IMG_3727

Then on to the Four Seasons Hotel. IMG_3713This is a beautiful hotel in Midtown Atlanta. The Food Truck was in the parking lot. IMG_3699They started their trip on September 15th and they will be in Atlanta all week. I had the Savannah Crab Cake Sandwich with Cheesy tater tots with green onions. My first bite of the sandwich I was kinda like it’s okay, but two more bites into it, it was delicious. I ate the whole thing.  IMG_3707You have to go and try this and let me know what you think! IMG_3722Just a lovely hike!

Kittredge Park, a really nice trail!

Coop on TrailKittredge Park is behind Kittredge School, now the International School. It has a really nice walking trail.Kittridge 11It is through a park behind the ball parks and swimming pool.Kittridge 10Now that the weather is crisp and cool it was truly a lovely walk and a tiny bit challenging. Kittridge 12It really is amazing how many trails are right here in the middle of our crazy city.Kittridge Trail3This is at the top of the trail. A cool place to sit. Then there is Olivia’s trail.Olivia's TrailWho is Olivia and where is the bridge at the end of her trail? Coop and I had to jump the creek. It was an awesome hike. Let me know if you know who Olivia is and why?

Peachtree DeKalb Airport and Some Cool Clouds

My first Staycation blog was on Peachtree DeKalb Airport, so, I thought I would revisit it. The sky was really cool also, not beautiful cool but dark and eerie. IMG_3653   IMG_3661     IMG_3659

It is still a fun place to bring the kids. IMG_3665

It is also great place to bring your parents, there are usually a group of older men there watching the planes take off. It is really cute. IMG_3664  It really is a fun place to hang out.IMG_3650Even if you just like clouds….

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.

Headed for Pallookaville, ended up at The Bishop

I decided to go some place new and Pallookaville Fine Foods was on my mind. It’s the corn dogs that are calling me. They have a polish sausage corn dog. So I drove to Avondale Estates. IMG_3678This is Pallookaville Fine Foods. I parked my car and I was walking past The Bishop, I just had to stop in. Bishop 6It was cool and dark and there was only one other patron in there. The wait staff was excellent. I ordered the hamburger and was excited they let me pick the temperature. I chose medium rare, I ended up getting medium, but, it was still very good! Bishop 5I got the homemade potato chips, excellent. I really like the space. photo 1-2They have wine on tap, fun huh. All in all a very good choice, I can’t wait to go back and try something else. (I also have to go back to Pallookaville)

North Fork Creekside Trail

Creek TrailThis is a fairly new trail and kinda just down the street from us. The name pretty much explains it all.

Quest for the BEST – Fajitas – Nuevo Laredo Cantina

IMG_3645Nuevo Laredo Cantina has long been an Atlanta Favorite Mexican Restaurant. There usually is a long wait line out of the door. Today, there was plenty of parking and I walked in and was seated immediately. They have one of my favorite salsas.Chips and salsaOnto the fajitas, they didn’t sizzle but they were great. Fajitas 1They are seasoned well and cooked perfectly. The rice is definitely the best I have ever had. They are also the most expensive so far. – $18.95. It was a lot of food, but not any more than I have gotten for a lot less. So far, I would say these are the BEST I have had. I will continue my quest and report back to you!
