Where to Eat in Atlanta, Georgia? Fat Matt’s Rib Shack

Fat Matt's Rib Shack - 1811 Piedmont Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30324 - (404) 607-1622

Fat Matt's Rib Shack - 1811 Piedmont Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30324 - (404) 607-1622

After having my friend Kelly yelling at me for months upon months I finally decided to visit Fat Matt’s and I didn’t even go with her, haha. The one thing was the line was very long (it was worth the wait) but they seemed to have no system for a long line and I would assume it’s like that quite often. I was wedged in line between the front door/porch door/people trying to leave and kept getting body checked in every direction, haha. As for the food, it was amazing and I cannot wait to go back and try more. It has this very authentic southern BBQ feel, the place is quaint and homely and I loved the outdoor dining area as well.

Parking is not the best right where the area is it but you can make it work it seems, just a little bit of patience. The menu is very simple and straight to the point which I love and is very much how every dining establishment should look to serve you, a blatant quick easy to read menu with a few specialty items. If you don’t like meat then don’t bother coming in here.

2010 Camaro SS at San Onofre State Beach in California

So yesterday you saw our route we rolled the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS around Southern California. In case you missed it “2010 Camaro SS – Sunday Drive [PREVIEW]” highlights our route we took in the new modern muscle car. Chevrolet answered everyone’s prayers by bringing back the muscle car so many people grew up to love with the Chevy emblem.

The San Onofre State Beach is a great remote place wedged north of Oceanside and south of San Clemente. It’s full of people in old VW vans and surfers with a romantic date vibe. Sadly for you “free” people of California the nude beach part of the park has been closed down as of mid 2008. So the place has become a little more family safe. If your driving on Highway 5 with your loved on or on vacation this is a great place to stop and really appreciate the California sunset if you have a chance.

Weaving around San Diego and cruising on Highway 5 the 2010 Camaro SS really comes into it’s own. While I don’t picture this thing as a beach cruiser off the bat it really fit into it’s own. While no 50’s style drag race broke out with any greasers and flagger girls in San Diego I really felt the car fit the atmosphere. When we stopped to take these photos I couldn’t tell you how many people stopped to inquire about the car.

A car comfortable enough your grandfather could take it on a road trip without complaining about his back but aggressive enough when you lay in the throttle to make a sub five second o-60mph. Our 6.2-liter LS3 V8 was matted to a 6 speed transmission which makes 422hp. If your looking for a refined muscle car that can handle some traffic but with a blip of the throttle throw your head back into the seat then this is your vehicle. Stay tuned as we keep you updated on our journey with the 2010 Camaro SS!

Where to stay in Louisville, Kentucky? Galt House Hotel & Suites

Louisville, Kentucky Skyline - Galt House Hotel

Louisville, Kentucky Skyline - Galt House Hotel

This place has a great location in the downtown area and some amazingly large suites but the place has some serious problems. First off, the deli has no real candy (I wanted a Snickers at 4am) and the lady looked at me like I was nuts so I ate some homemade cookie. At least let’s carry some normal stuff.

The hotel room is huge in size but mostly for no reason and our room was kind of falling apart. The shower door fell apart and the room has tons of random closets that were super strange. The plumbing was pretty sketch and the whole hotel has a strange old vibe.

The front desk people just seem to be confused by requests or why you would want to talk to them. The night manager told me I had to talk to his boss on what should of been a super simple task. All in all I would come back but I would price shop around the waterfront area first.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro – Sunday Drive [PREVIEW]

Here is a map of how we took out our 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS which was a perfect Sunday drive. We made a few stops that we will review and overall just loved the Chevrolet Camaro SS on this drive. While it didn’t feature the distance our average drive does it didn’t take away from the experience of our adventure. The American Sunday drive is something grandiose and often under appreciated but coming up is a guide on how to take one in an American muscle car.

Enjoy the snapshot of the day from the coast of Nice, France. A light blue Mediterranean Sea greets anyone who visits the gorgeous French Riviera when you arrive. If your a motorsport fan you can visit here in May for the Formula 1 race in Monte Carlo. Nice, France is just short train ride away and offers much cheaper lodging for the Formula 1 week. May is also the Cannes Film Festival month which takes place a few miles west of Nice.The winter it can get a little chilly so plan accordingly.

Where to Stay in Las Vegas? – The Venetian Hotel

The Venetian Hotel and Casino - Las Vegas, Nevada

The Venetian Hotel and Casino - Las Vegas, Nevada

After staying here for a week I feel like I got a great lay for the land. When it comes to the higher end hotels on the Las Vegas Strip this one is at the top of my list. The suites come with a bedroom section that has it’s own television and a feeling of privacy from the sunken living room.

The living room has a flat screen television along with a nice table to get that “work you promised your boss” you would do while on the road. The couch is a huge sectional and pretty comfortable for your “club randoms” to crash on at night. Great huge bathroom and an overall quality in your suite will leave you sleeping fantastically every night.

My female friend was very disappointed that in November the pool was pretty much cast in shadows all day which really seems like a design error. Clearly the pool area was designed by men if they didn’t think woman would want to bask in the sun all day.

Another bonus is your attached to the Palazzo Hotel which has some great dining/shopping options. It also doubles your indoor gambling space without having to endure the evil Vegas sun. If you are brave enough to walk outside you have a pretty central location on the Strip making it a quick stumble to anywhere you really want to get or a cheap cab.

Bring some cash if your going to gamble at the Venetian since you will run into some of the higher staked tables on the Strip as well. Parking structure is always crowded but the amount of security leaves me feeling better about leaving the car inside the deck than most places.

The best kept secret at  the Venetian is the Grand Lux Cafe. It is the best valued place to eat on the Strip if you want good food at less than $15 a plate, here is my review:
