Tuesdays Around The World

I know I shared this yesterday in a smaller image, but here it is again in all its glory!  My kids have lived in Atlanta for 5 years and have never eaten at The Varsity.   Apparently, Obama was in Atlanta recently for a day visit and he even ate at The Varsity before my kids.  We had to correct this.

The Varsity is an Atlanta icon in fast food.  It is greasy, but you have to eat there to say you did. And you have to wear the little paper hat; it’s a rule that must not be broken.

My first time eating there was at the wee age of 8.  The grease was a bit much, and I remember getting a little sick.

Fast forward 32 years, and I am eating it for the second time.  I didn’t feel great the next day…but my kids seemed to be ok.  Not sure if my tummy was experiencing a self-fulfilling prophecy, or what.

Still, there are some foods to not miss.  You need the onion rings.  You need a Frosted Orange.  You may need a Tums.  But do visit if you are in Atlanta!

  6. Sounds like fun, I do get what you mean about “having” to do it at least once – I do suspect that my tummy would feel a little upside down after that though! 🙂

    What a gorgeous picture! And we do love, love the Varsity- I have fond memories of it as a child (but never got sick!), in youth group, and we eat there at least once when we’re home. Iconic Atlanta!

  10. That sounds sort of like Dick’s in Spokane, Washington. You need to eat there so you can say you did…plus the burgers there are great. I don’t think they’ve ever cleaned the grills.

    Your image truly pops, you did a great job with it.

  11. Love it.

  12. That’s the way it is here on the West Coast too.
    Everyone has to go to In n Out Burger and then to Krispe Kreme for doughnuts.
    Talk about an overdose! Of course one has to wear the silly paper hat too.
