    Maybe it's time for someone to start a new foodie thread to compare & brag up local and regional fare.

    But that might rile up the unthin haters... Ha! bring it on.

    Traditional traditional southern food when in Atlanta: Mary Mac's Tea Room.

    Oh wait, that was for another thread, right? ;)

    Hey, Burt, got it out and am running a tank of gas through it under load to make sure it works because I hear winter is on its way.

    Dang, youse guys would start talking about food. I'm hungry. :)

    Back in Colorado my wife and I would frequently dine out at a hole-in-the-wall place that served Vietnamese cuisine. Being a former French colony, there is a noticeable French influence to it. Pretty good stuff. I particularly liked the stuffed grape leaves.

    But, having grown up in the South, I gotta say, ain't nuthin' better than some old fashioned simple Southern fare. Say, chicken fried steak and a pot 'o collards, with biscuits 'n honey. Dang, now I gotta go and raid the kitchen. :p

    Yocco's in Allentown. Best hotdogs around.
    For dinner I just prefer to grill it myself. Steak, chicken, or seafood. Topped of with a cobbler in the Dutch Oven. Cherry, peach, apple, etc. Along with a Yuengling or Cabernet Sauvignon, depending on my mood.

    And I can cook this even during emergencies like the snow and ice storms we get frequently.

    Don't overlook local restaurants in your travels. Eat where the locals eat for interesting food. I remember a little dive in Cortez, Colorado called the something or other "rose" like "dusty rose" or whatever that had the best Amaretto chicken I have found then and since. Cajun food is best at local places. I had favorite Italian restaurants owned by first gen old country, same for Greek and Thai.

    There was a little place called "Pete's" in my town in Louisiana with northern Italian food. I was a regular and when I needed a "clincher" for a young lady I liked, I took her to Pete's where she got the royal treatment. The food was marvelous...and the desert.

    P.S. Fav grilled steaks? Mine! Fav grilled burgers? Mine!

    I have NOT read the current 33 pages of this thread,

    BUT

    Just wait until the INTERNET with all the platforms
    (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and ALL the others)
    go BELLY UP and are not available, the reaction is going to
    be unbelieveable.

    Same thing goes for the CELLULAR TELEPHONE NETWORK.
    It is vulnerable to the same failures.
    YES, you might be able to use the cell system locally, but going out of your
    LOCAL service area will most likely be affected.
    The internet is in use everywhere for interconnection of electronic
    communications traffic.


    You know, and I know that it WILL FAIL, it is just
    a matter of time.

    The experimental ACSB system in Pittsburgh was on 220 mHz.
    It used 25-35 watt mobiles
    I was involved in the field testing of the system.

    Coverage was what you might expect.
    Being between VHF-HB and UHF, it had it's plusses and minus.

    Too bad it never took off.
