Man vs Food

Lately I have been watching the travel channel ALOT! One of my favorite shows airing on this channel is Man vs Food. It's pretty similar to Dinners, Drive Ins and Dives on the Food Network, another great show. In M v F Adam goes to a different city each episode and visits three popular restaurants. One of the restaurants has a food challenge on the menu. In one of the episodes they visited Atlanta. The first two spots were two Atlanta Favorites.....The Vortex (Little 5) and Gladys Knights Chicken and Waffles. The 3rd spot, challenge location, was Big Pie In The Sky in Kennesaw which is home to the Carnivore Pizza. Adam had to team up with a partner to eat this massive 11 Pound Pizza. Yes...11 pounds. I couldn't believe how big it was. the results...they couldn't tame the beast. Some other challenges on the show were a 72 oz Steak and a 4 lb Cheeseburger. Below was the best pic I could find of the Pizza Challenge. Since the pic is more centered on Adam and the M v F Cheerleaders you cant really see the full size of it, but you get the idea.

Lunch Time!!!!

So today Terri and I tried out a little place I've been wanting to try for a while. The name of the place is George's which is located in the Virginia Highlands. Its been around since 1961 and looks pretty similair to how it probably looked when it opened. Since I'm actually taking the time to blog about it your probably wondering if it was really good or if it really sucked......It was GREAT! The place is voted the Best Burger and Best Lunch Spot in Atlanta, by Atlanta City Seach, and it lived up to it. Its simple food done well. I had a Bacon and Swiss Burger with Fries and Terri had Chicken Tenders with Fries. It was really good. If your around the Highlands and want some good food at a great price check it out.

Hockey Time

Before the NHL Season started I took a look at the Thrasers schedule to see if they were playing my team, the Vancouver Canucks, as I looked down the schedule sure enough I see the Ole Canucks are on it! Even better, the game is in Atlanta and to top it off its on the Friday after New Years! Terri being the kickass girlfriend she is scoops up some tickets, 5 rows up center ice I add. We had a great time and saw a really good game. The game went into overtime, then shootouts and then sudden death shootouts. In the end the Canucks lost. But I still had a great time. Thanks Terri!!!!

You didnt know that I play for the Canucks did you

Happy Late New Year

Hapy New Year People! Well its another year down and another one started. Every New Year many people take a look at what they did, didnt do and what they want to do in the New Year.

At the start of 2008 I made 3 goals for myself or resolutions if you will...1) Be Happy 2) Save Some Money and 3) Eat Healthy and Workout. I feel confident to say that I was able to meet all of these goals. I certainly had times throughout the year that I was not demonstrating or acheiving these goals. I even questioned if I would make some of them at times. But, its a full year......what can you expect. Luckily I have some back up that have made me meet these goals and will help me not to forget them them in 09....Loving Family, Great Friends, A Job, Drive, Determination and a Rockstar Girlfriend.

So what are my goals or resolutions for 09? Well the 3 from last year are pretty important. So Im going to continue to keep those in my life. But I need to add to that to try and continue to better myself.....

1) Do some traveling. I just have not done it. Im the guy with no input when people talk about different travel or vacation spots. Then hear all the should go there, why dont you go or you have never been there?! I think its time for me to to experience some different surroundings and experience more of the world.

2) Think about others more. Just dosent seem right that when goals are thought of, put into action and made thats it is mostly about ones self. I mean we are all in this world together right? Im going to try to do more volunteer work and put myself in other peoples shoes more. The past 2 years I have done some form of volunteer / charity work 3 times a year about. Hopefully I can improve on that number and in the process pull others into it at the same time.

I feel pretty good using those as my goals or resolutions in 2009. The 3 carry overs are now part of my mind set and adding 2 more to it can only make things better!

Happy New Years Everyone!!!!!

Long Time

Whats up People!? Sorry for the absence of blogging. Decemeber has just kind of flown by and blogging was the last thing on my mind...It was a good month though with the holidays and time off.

Terri and I got to have our first Christmas together. We were going to separate destinations for Christmas day itself. So we had our Christmas the Monday before. We had some great wine and a kickass meal of Bacon Wrapped Scallops with a Spicey Mayo Dipping Sacue, Grilled Lamb Chops with a Horseradish, Mustard and Mint Glaze and some Risotto with some aged Balsamic. Yea....We are rockstars in the kitchen! Then shared some gifts and got crunk!

I then got to see my family for Christmas. It had been quite sometime since the Browns had all been together under one roof. It was great seeing everyone and just hanging out. Mom as usual made some great grub for us. And we had no problem devourin it! I wish that we had more time together though. Luv u guys!!!!

December also brought the end of the regular season of the NFL, tear. Which meant that Fantasy Football ended for another year. So my stress and yelling levels on Sundays will lower considerable. I know have to wait another year to say "ESTABLISH THE RUN!!!!" The results.....The Men of Brown (My team) ended up pulling a big choke job. After putting up some crazy numbers my team went from the 1st seed in the playoffs to finishing 4th. The Grundle Punchers (Mac's Team) won Chapionship this year, congrats Mac! And more importantly......Kelly finished in last which meant that he had to dress up like a cowboy for one night. Kelly sucked it up and was a great sport, well done buddy!

Thats about it for now. Look for some more updates soon. Happy Holidays to all!
