Atlanta 101

Cheers to another great girls weekend! I have been traveling to Atlanta yearly for some time. Each time I go I have a different experience. The thing that never changes is that I always have a great time in Atlanta. 
Day 1
We had lunch at Mary Mac’s Tea Room. The food was amazing. However, the server was even more amazing. He knew the menu forwards and backwards. Everything he recommended was delicious. I opted for the shrimp and grits and they didn’t disappoint. Yes, I’m still following a pescatarian diet. 
After lunch we headed over to Tags. This is a trendy boutique owned by Kandi Burruss. The items were surprisingly affordable and the staff was friendly. I bought two cute shirts that I can’t wait to wear. 
We ended the day with a dinner in pink at Negril Village. This is my second time here and it was just as good as before. This is the perfect place to go for food and music. I had the curry shrimp with a side of macaroni. I would definitely recommend this dish. Give me a good meal and music and I can hang out all night. They played a great mix ranging from reggae to rap. 
Day 2 and 3 were spent at ONE Musicfest. This is a 2 day festival that was held in Centennial Olympic Park. It was the 10th anniversary and they showed out. There were performances by Monica, Rick Ross, Teyana Taylor, Usher, Lil Scappy, Case, Gucci Mane, Wu Tang Clan, DMX, Raphael Saddiq and many more. This festival is well worth the cost of admission. They stepped it up this year by having more space,  vendors, and food options. Of course I had to eat while I was there. I tried the well known Slutty Vegan food truck and loved it. The wait was incredibly long, but I am glad I got to experience the One Night Stand burger. 

While we are on the subject of food, I can’t forget the incredible breakfast we had at Atlanta Breakfast Bar before heading to the festival. I had the biscuits with shrimp gravy and was happy my friend shared some of her delicious peach cobbler French toast. Whew! I want more. We also went to the Trap Museum On Day 2. This was such a dope experience. I loved seeing the exhibit that featured some of my favorite artists.  

Day 4
We used our final day to explore the World of Coca-Cola. This is a great experience for all ages. You get to learn about the history of Coca Cola and what it means for the city of Atlanta. There are several exhibits to explore and at the end of the self guided tour you can try various coke flavors from all across the world. We finished our final day with lunch at Sweet Auburn Seafood home of one of Atlanta’s black chefs. I wanted to live the shrimp and lobster pot pie I had. It was good, but lacking the creaminess of a pot pie. The filling had a broth consistency. The seafood nachos are definitely a great dish worth trying. 
I’m already compiling my list of where to go during my next Atlanta trip.
