Makes total sense -- though, I wish I shared your confidence in the game (fingers crossed you're dead-on with that one). We'll be yelling loud for a win, that I can tell ya. Thanks again!
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Excellent -- thanks again for||
Excellent -- thanks again for all the info, I was really worried I was overthinking things (I'm in NYC, usually we just default to public transportation, but they're not always so reliable as I'm used to).
But yea, I was thinking we'd get out of the Dome area and do some celebrating/cheering-up somewhere "real" and not just downtown.
Not to pepper you with too many questions, but a friend just reecommended we park/MARTA from the Lenox stop in Buckhead for our plan (and not Decatur). Would that one also work, google map makes it look like a bit of an easier drive -- your post makes me think Decatur is more awesome, though. Note that I'm 36 so we won't be staying out nearly as late as you young guys, anyway. haha. Great point on the MARTA closing time, but it sounds like that should still work.
And, good news for me, I looked at hotels again and we were able to move in closer than Suwanee, now staying in...Norcross. Hey, its progress.
Thanks again for helping with all the ATL knowledge -- go blue!

Cool, good to know. Thanks, and don't forget to root for the Shockers in the opener! (I'm sure you'll have one or two people around you to remind you guys.)

Thanks very much for the post -- a big help!
I am coming into ATL for the first time...do you have advice on strategy to come into town for the game? I'm a first-timer to ATL and, to use hotel points, we're currently planning on staying out in Suwanee for Saturday night. Not as fun as I'd hoped but hey, "free."
Is the MARTA a good idea to be able to park easily / outside of downtown to get out of game traffic? I'm thinking maybe of driving in to, say, Decatur to park there, take the MARTA to the game and back out to get out of the traffic...and, more importantly, maybe get a drink or two somewhere interesting before we get back out on the road late. Would that plan work or am I overthinking this and should just drive straight to the dome?
Thanks again for the thread, and Go Blue!

Alas I snoozed and lost -- I just called and the Shockers' ticket office voice greeting says their Final Four allotment is sold out. Great idea, though.
Just curious: What was face value on those tickets? Knowing face may dictate the "buy now or try to wait it out" decision for us.

Prof Thom's is a good bar -- one of the several owners went to U of M so it is a "Michigan bar" but it's primarily a Red Sox bar (some of the other owners are Sox fans). But they're one of the "offical" places, so don't worry about that.
I personally really like the place but it can get pretty ridiculously crowded for game-time itself, heads-up there.
