Yep, did both along with the zoo, Fernbank, the High, and the capitol (those are the ones I remember).

Speaking of Rosebud, does anyone else remember the customized trailer they used to haul her around in? It had a big glass windows on the side so she was visible as they were towing her around!

I don't remember that but we did have Mathis dairy milk delivered daily. And occasionally bought a can or 2 of chips/cookies from the Charles Chips' delivery person.

LOL all of the neighborhood kids thought that the delivery guy's name was actually Charles Chips...we'd ride our bikes behind his truck yelling, "Hey! Charlie Chips!"
Visiting Mathis Dairy and Rosebud was a rite of passage for DeKalb County kids. I remember when my brother went there in kindergaten and got to see Rosebud get milked. That night we went to Davis Bros. Cafeteria and Mother ordered milk for him..."He'll have milk," she said.
"I will NOT!"
"Why not, honey? You love milk."
"That's before I knew where it came from!"
We still laugh about that 45 years later.

Oh Lord...I loved the Atlanta of the 80's...I came from south Ga and went to UGA where most of the students were from Atlanta...and you'd go to Atlanta on the weekend and go into Buckhead...and would see UGA students everywhere. Good ole days was a favorite. I remember the Limelight...but next to it was Confetti's. There was another club we used to go to closer to the downtown area...it had 3 or 4 dancefloors and music and bands playing...it was alternative and new wave...It was the club Rob Lowe got caught with the 16 yr old...oh well.

I have been away from Atlanta for a few yrs...the Storehouse clearance store is was in buckhead. I fondly remember Rich's...worked there part time at the Perimeter store. I have a Richie bear too.

I was beyond belief when they closed the big 3 dollar in buckhead. I remembered when they were building spagetti junction. I used to work for Johnstown Property Mgmt and they were bought out.

I remember Lionel's playland at Buford Hwy. We used to visit my cousins who lived in Dunwoody when it was just a quiet suburb. My cousins and I would ride our bikes all over those wooded burbs with those HUGE (to a 10 yr old at the time) 2 story houses.

La Paz was a favorite mexican restaurant...dont know if it is still there...the original location was on Roswell Rd north of perimeter next to an adult store. Drug Emporium was THE place for every toiletry under the sun...those were the days before super walmart and Target.

I remember the flowerpot sandwiches too. And Oxford bookstore too.

And Cub's too...hey, is Speigel's still there in Norcross? I worked there part time too.

I think you're talking about the 688 Club...the 'springboard' venue for R.E.M. and the B-52's.
