Atlanta, Durham, Philly, and Little Compton

I’m a bit behind, but I wanted to get a quick post up on these places I visited two weeks ago while I was making my way up to Maine. It’s been a whirlwind. Here we go!

Atlanta, GA

I stayed with a good friend of mine in Atlanta and holy smokes was it a nice house. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos of anything except for one meal. Sorry! Let’s just say I was preoccupied by the great food, atotes adorbs fish dog, a super goofy Seinfeld dog, tons of beautiful design objects, sweet swag, chicken and waffles with homemade bourbon pecan syrup, and coworking.

Matt took me to some great dining spots including a little restaurant called Bantam & Biddy. It had some pretty phenomenal chicken and waffles.

Durham, NC

I met up with a friend of mine from Colorado, Dr. Montaño. He showed me all around Durham in the few days I was there. We had several great drinks, went for a hike to an old quarry that is now a great little lake. We met a very friendly guy from Serbia who swam over to us in his american flag speedo to chat a bit. It’s worth noting that everyone in town was going crazy with Pokemon Go. I finally tried it out a bit, but haven’t messed with it much since.

Bonus: we met Burt’s Bees.

Philly

I stopped in Philly for a night on the way up the coast. I stayed with Alx and his family. Alx is a friend and coworker of mine. Lula cooked us up an experimental tamale that was pretty dang good with green chile. We then hung out in their cool yard for a few hours before meeting up with another friend of ours, Tracy, at Tattooed Moms.

Oh, and both Alx and Tracy trounced me at Pokemon Go when we were at Tattooed Moms.

 

Little Compton, RI

I was only here for one evening and morning, but that didn’t stop me from making some new friends and seeing some really amazing places during the visit. I went biking to the dock, had a wine tasting on the beach during the sunset, took maybe the best shower I’ve ever experienced (outdoors in perfect weather under the stars), had a lobster broil where I learned how to prepare a lobster, and witnessed a master amplifier maker in action using the remarkable amp he made. If you’re looking for a hand-made amp that is definitely one-of-a-kind with a super sweet sound, let me know. 😀

Upcoming: NYC and New Bedford

Let me know if you have any suggestions for places in either NYC or New Bedford that I absolutely need to go to. Thanks!
