After having some fun in Louisiana, we left for Atlanta to get our passports because, after all, this was what this trip was all about. We drove along the coast and decided to stop at one of the beautiful beaches. The girls could play in the water and Philippe and I could have an aperitif.
25+ years ago Philippe attended a fair in Atlanta to promote his BBS software ProBoard. He then had dinner at Pittypat’s Porch. He told me about the rocking chairs on the porch and how he thought I would love them as much as he did. So it was a no-brainer to make a stop there. The name of the restaurant refers to Scarlett O’Hara’s aunt Pittypat in the movie “Gone with the Wind“. She was a gracious hostess to visitors, especially on her grand porch. Pictures of Clarkle Gable and Vivien Leigh and newspaper articles about the movie were on display throughout the restaurant. It was a neat place and the rocking chairs were very inviting.
We had dinner at Hard Rock Café Atlanta. I always like to stroll around and look for pictures of my favorite artists. Bruce Springsteen was watching every move and we even came across a picture of Willie! So, what’s not to like about HRC? We sure love it!
