On my way to pick Tom up at the Atlanta airport. Stopped at Chick-fil-a for some lunch.

No Varsity? Isn't that the place to eat in Atlanta?

I'll tell my son to look for you.  He's driving a red New Beetle.  I'm supposed to drive with him but may not make it... I may have bronchitis.  Sad trombone...

In reply to J.A. Ackley :

I usually default to either chick-fil-a for quick food or Cracker Barrel for sit down on road trips. By the highway and normally consistent.
