It claims to be the world’s largest drive-in restaurant. Truly, unless you grew up going there or came to like it while attending Ga Tech (I did both), it’s just greasy burgers, hot dogs and fries/onion rings. It is an unique experience and if in Atlanta and can make it for a meal is worth trying.

I don’t find driving in Atlanta much different than other large cities.

I’ve been to both the Woodcraft and Rockler stores in Atlanta…not sure if this comparison would hold true for stores in other areas. I found they were very similar. Rockler seems to have more store brand supplies while Woodcraft has their Wood River line of tools. They both carry lumber that seems expensive compared to true wood retailers.

If you get to Atlanta, the atmosphere/environment of Highland Woodworking is wonderful. It is in an old 2 story building and wood floors, etc. I started going years ago when it was Highland Hardware and they sold general hardware items and a little woodworking stuff.

Hotbyte, The Varsity? Not familiar with that. Intriguing.
