And yeah, the flowerpot sandwiches rocked as did the "Potatos Wonderful"! Good times... Indigo Girls used to play at the Buckhead location pretty regularly! Is Aunt Charleys still there?
Wasn't there also one in Little 5 Points? I thought it was where the brewpub is now, across the the Zestos.

It was in a big shopping center (Skyland?). It was a couple blocks North of North Druid Hills Rd on the right.

Does anybody remember those radio commercials featuring a couple named Hamilton and Virginia? I can't even remember what they were advertising but the voices were terrific.

There was one that ended with Virginia saying, "Hamilton, if it's a party you want there's always the Driving Club."

Default Knotty Pines

I can't believe anyone but me has ever been to the Knotty Pines. The last time I was there was in 1961 or 62.

If you remember WAOK and Piano Red then you should also remember Daddy Sears and Alley Pat Patterson too. Right?
