It's Mothers day and we just finished lunch in Chatanooga, Tn. The crowds were too large at our first choice of feasting(Golden Corral) so we disbanded and went to different places of fine dining. Stefan and I headed to MOE'S SOUTHWESTERN GRILL. Thumbs up from both of us. The theme of the restaurant is as follows: they have paintings of dead musicians and only play music by musicians who are no longer with us. Because they never got to eat at Moe's, they pay homage to the deceased musician since this will be the closest they can get to tasting their deliciousness. Something like that.

Yesterday we were in Atlanta, Ga.. We played this huge old movie theater called The Variety Playhouse. Definitely the biggest place we played on the tour. The stage was as big as some of the clubs we played. What a great show. All the bands played well and the audience was quite receptive. It was probably one of my favorite shows so far. Though it was a Saturday, everyone(the bands) was pooped from the late nights in Orlando. After the show, the goal was to go to a strip bar, but everyone was so tired that we opted for rest.

The hotel we were staying at had free breakfast, but it ended at 10 AM, so I set my alarm for 9:50 AM to optimize my sleep and at the same time get free food. I woke up Hiro and we headed over to the buffett. It was a good one. Usually free breakfast consists of a danish, coffee, and juice. But this place had waffles, eggs, sausage, bacon, cereals, bagels, oatmeal, fruits, and more. The problem with all that I wasn't hungry. I was still half asleep and could only manage getting down a waffle and some odds and ends. Oh well.

We've got about 130 miles left on our drive til' we hit tonights destination of Nashville. I'm a bit sleepy, so I'm gonna try to get a little nap in. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ....

Peace, Mike Park
