Jerome-very cool. Kelly - glad your hubby got a laugh. From the minutes those words left his lips, I knew we were screwed!

... My former dufus of a son-in-law and I attended the gold medal USA basketball olympic game in ATL and when to the Varsity after the game. The lines were humongous. When we got to the counter and heard the magic question, dufus said, "Well, it's about time." (Oh no he dint!!!)

The counter lady said to him..."Just hold on one minute sweety," put up a closed sign at her place, walked away and never came back. We had to start at the end of another line.

Don't ya love feisty southern women?  :smiley:

The Varsity is almost a thrill ride all by itself. Between marriages, my girlfriend flew into ATL - I picked her up and drove directly to the "V" for lunch...we snared a drive-in spot where servers come out on roller skates to take and deliver your order---and then return to pick up the tray they hung on your car window.

Well......after chomping down our dogs, we put the empty serving tray back on the window and proceeded to engage in one hot and steaming make-out session.

A few minutes into it, there was a fairly stern rapping on our window. I disengaged (the right word!), and rolled the window down a bit. There was a very serious looking guy there picking up the tray....he looked straight at me and said clearly, "You know...we takes tips!"

I got the message. I haven't been there nearly enough but I loved every single experience there. Did you know that single hot dog joint has a 400 car parking garage attached? Whew. That's big time. -- MM
