As it turns out, this time she made a brief appearance on his new show (as if I needed to be more jealous). As I grudge watched it last night -reveling in my envy and wanting so bad to hate it- I instead gritted my teeth through what is the best weekend guide to ATL I have ever seen.
In the a most bizarre ending he manages to get Alton Brown to go with him to the Clermont Lounge. For those uninitiated and/or unfamiliar with the Clermont, it's exactly like strip club would be if David Lynch ran one. A place where you are just as likely to get stabbed in the parking lot as you are to run into Bill Murray and Morgan Freeman.
My single complaint is that he opted for BBQ at Fatt Matt's instead of Thompson Bro's (which does get a shot-out fromm a local expert), he actually directly goes and justifies this in his casual eff' you kinda way.
ive been to the clermont lounge once. a couple years back. ive chilled at dugans next door and the social across the street plenty of times. those are normal places. the clermont is trippy as hell. there was a old ass dj (he was cool as hell though). there were only 3 strippers when i went. a heavily tattooed chick with a hot body dancing on top of the bar, a big fat black lady (250 lbs easy), and a seriously like 60 year old stripper dressed a dorothy from wizard of oz. lol! and if that wasn't crazy enough the american pie guys walk in. jason biggs, eddie kay thomas & thomas ian nicholas. crazy
ing place. ive hungout on that part of ponce plenty of times & never had any drama or violence. its not a bad place.
for bbq he should have tried fox bros. damn good bbq & its always packed.
