  13. Wow thanks....now I have to see it even more!...damn I have been waiting for months to see it and cant....arrgh! ← Chris - I've been working from 7:30a-6p, then from 9pm to 1am every day for over a week on 3 engineering projects, and didn't get a chance to watch this episode until tonight. You are my HERO my friend! Not only are you a real-life Hero as an officer, but your ability to present good eats to AB was just awesome. You are the most memorable personality AB visits on the entire series. AB lives up this way, and I wish I could have joined his tour on my own motorcycle. But I couldn't have taken that much time off from my work. I'm sorry you missed the episode - I live in north ATL and wish you would have publicized your presence here. I coulda bought you a Sweetwater beer, or a donut from one of the oldest Krispy Kreme's, on Ponce de Leon. However, since it's too late for that, I recorded the episode on my DVR/DVD recorder, and I would be happy to peel you off a copy if you want to PM me. GREAT SHOW! ← Thank you so much....I loved Atlanta and the great food a well as the great people...I did manage to stop byAltons studio and grab a copy...it was fun to watch and sure was a blast to film....

  16. Wow thanks....now I have to see it even more!...damn I have been waiting for months to see it and cant....arrgh!

  19. We got into Atlanta today to film an episode of my new food network show and we need to find something "different"...We did "chicken fried lobster" in Vegas and the foood net execs loved it and want us to find something along the same lines in Atlanta....any ideas? We will be here for 4 more nights... Chris
