DAY FOUR: Atlanta

Posted on Saturday, July 24th, 2010


When I arrived in Atlanta this morning after my redeye flight I was pretty dead. By the time I made it to my hotel I was mostly dead. The only part of me that wasn't dead was the part that was allergic to something in my room. Finally, after tossing in bed for a half-hour being all miserable with a sore throat and runny nose, I decided to take a bunch of antihistamines and see if I could catch up on some sleep.

I woke up five hours later at 2:00.

And by "wake up" I actually mean "sleepwalked," because it took at least an hour before I was able to function again.

After slapping myself into consciousness for a while, it was time for dinner with Muskrat, Whipstitch, and Val, where I drank too many of these...

Watermelon Wheat Beer

It's a delicious "Watermelon Wheat" beer that was a special at The 5 Seasons. A fantastic way to take the edge off a hot Atlanta day!

And now, since I have to be up early for work tomorrow morning, I must bid you adieu.

My travel map for this trip now looks like this...

    It was fun getting together, so exiting that I finally found a grit I liked and of course the watermelon wheat was pretty good too. Enjoy

    Watermelon beer. Mmmmm.
    Good seeing you again…enjoy your time in the very warm and humid Georgia today!

    Was that watermelon wheat beer called Hell or High Watermelon by 21st Amendment Brewery out of S.F.? That’s been Gia’s go-to beer all summer long. She’s in the beer business selling craft beer and this is the only beer from a brewery she doesn’t represent that she drinks. Had a few last night myself at a local BBQ joint. Yum! Very tasty and refreshing in this hot and sticky summer.

    Nevermind. I clicked the link and saw that it was from 5 Seasons brewery. Duh. I didn’t realize anyone else was making a watermelon wheat beer. Cool!

  5. Kerri Anne says:

    In all of my beer consumption, I haven’t ever seen a beer featuring a slice of watermelon. Well played, Atlanta. Well played.

    I was really hoping you were going to make a surprise appearance in Lexington this past weekend, so I’m pouting.
    But happy you had fun. 😛

  7. Hilly Sue says:

    I’m glad you’re getting some fun in on your whirlwind trip! I’ve officially started counting down the days until I’m your main destination, btw. 🙂

  8. Avitable says:

    If Davelanta had been another weekend, I totally would have been there, too. But only to see Deb. Not any of you.

    Don’t mind me as I slowly work my way through your last 15 posts since I haven’t read blogs the last two weeks.
