After taking the van in for ANOTHER recall and waiting for AT&T to do their install, we went to lunch and then to the Atlanta History Center for a Folk-Art Festival. Lunch was OK, which was fitting, since we went to the OK Cafe. It appears that this place must be some historic landmark. There was a ton on people there. We sat at a table that was too large for the four of us. The waitress had an incredible southern drawl. I couldn’t understand her at times. But the menu…..I truly didn’t get it. Seemed very limited, unappealing, and expensive! The cheapest sandwich was about $8 for a place that resembled a diner. Soft drinks were $3! Ridiculous. And there was no kids’ menu. Lunch cost me $55 (including tip) for 4 of us. I am glad I tried it, but next time I will just hit the Steak N’ Shake across the street.
We spent most of our time at the Atlanta History Center outdoors, check out the petting zoo, a guy acting as an old-time blacksmith, ladies cooking in an old kitchen with nothing but a fire and a pot, etc. But it’s a very nice facility and I want to go back and check out the other exhibits. I was too tired to spend much time reading about the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and Bobby Jones. It was because I didn’t have a soda all day. I asked Julie for a $1 to buy one as we were leaving and she declined to do it. Bad move.
On our way to pick up the van, I stopped at a Shell station and got a soda for myself, and one for Julie as well. Both drinks tasted awful. Some flavoring was getting into the drinks and they tasted like medicine. I had to throw them away and then go to the BP near my house. All fountains are NOT created equal.
