Hello?

The Varsity
dougknight
It's old. It's unique. It's really good food. Wine ages a certain way. Milk ages a certain way. The Varsity stays the same. The large ketchup bottles are the reason why.

Anyone know some info about the train hopping/hitch hiking community/culture it Atlanta?
It's an amazing culture I'm drawn to, so any relevant feedback will be awesome.

questions abt Phillips Arena floor seats

Sadly, the seat charts at the Phillips Arena site aren't helpful in showing seat numbers.

I'm looking at tickets in Sec 1 (to the right of the stage), around Row E, seats 3 & 4.

Are the seats numbered from the outside aisle in, or are they numbered from the right inside aisle out? In other words, are seats 3 & 4 nearer to Section 102/103 (upper level) or are they closer to Sec 2, which is the block of seats in front of the stage?

Also, having never sat in the floor seats at Phillips, does security keep people from moving their seats around, closing them up and leaving them on the floor, that sort of thing? If things can get crazy like a mosh pit, that's not for me. I don't mind standing up and dancing the whole concert, though. :)

Thanks for any help!

Don't let this happen without a fight.

GPB approached GaTech about something like this with WREK a few years back. And because the GT administration wasn't a bunch of shady assholes, the proposal was actually debated and eventually shot down.

Boycott GPB
Make your voice heard to the Georgia State administration that went behind the students' backs to do this.

moving/packing company recommendations

I'm looking for a moving company that will also pack the smaller items in my condo, like clothes, books, and kitchen stuff. Recommendations and reviews are welcome. I have some mobility issues, so need help packing and lifting. It's a short-distance move, from condo to near-by storage unit. Have not used a moving company in many years, and want good people who are helpful and won't over-charge me.

I already have an artist I love but I'm looking for someone who has a speciality in small tattoos. Looking for something a bit detailed on a tiny space with very clean lines. TIA!

Winter weather "event" - again
hawklady
This is one of the best almost-layman's explanations I've seen yet of the factors behind this week's winter storm, and why there's so much freak-out.

It also gives an idea of just how frickin' many "moving parts" are involved in this type of event and making the forecast "challenging". It's particularly challenging with winter wx, where a couple of degrees makes all the difference as far as what happens on the ground is concerned.
