After leaving here and a brief look in a shoe store, we made our way along the streets of Atlanta where we passed a 'peaceful' protest group (I think it was something religious they were protesting about) and a man taking a nap in the middle of the sidewalk. He was actually laying horizontally on the path! We walked up past a park with a section where people were playing chess and at the other end was a reading area that provided a trolley with books on that anyone could take and read. How novel I thought (boom tish)! There were some unformed guys patrolling the area, one on foot the other on a Segway (I'd be dangerous on one of these!). It turned out they were Atlanta Ambassadors and the one on foot gave us some very settling advice 'you better not stay in this area too late, that's when the shots start'. OK, no problem!
We headed over to a restaurant called Twin Peaks. For those who don't know it but know what Hooter's is like then it is a bit like that. For those who don't know Hooter's, it's a restaurant where the waitresses that serve you don't wear very much! Very popular with men and was our reasoning behind the trip (that my cousin Sam and I might find one haha!). After unsuccessfully snaring any we took a trip to Lenox Mall where we mainly waited for coffees at a very busy Starbucks and watched some kids play a dance game on a Kinect or something they have in the middle of the mall.
That night we went to a place called Shout (we'd originally tried a place called Twist but it was too busy and loud, I'm so old haha). I drank some cocktails while the barman showed us the wobble (look it up if you don't know it!).
