Restaurant: Antico – Atlanta

IMG_1371

April and I love pizza.  A lot.  I grew up going to Felini’s and have always thought it was the best in Atlanta.  I spent many nights there hanging with friends, and for me it was the gold standard.  Until I had Antico.

Antico is a funny place.  There’s only first come first serve picnic style seating, and you’re typically sitting on top of someone else at all times.  They blast classic Italian music over the speakers so loud that you can barely hold a conversation, they won’t substitute anything on a pizza, and the three ovens ensure that it’s 900 degrees at all times… in the restaurant.

Despite all of that, the place is always PACKED.  That’s how good this pizza is.

April and I always get the pepperoni pizza.  The pepperoni has just the right kick to it, and the mozzarella is outstanding.  You can probably find us there two – three times a month!

Charleston Wedding

Congrats to Todd and Nicole!  Your setting was awesome, and we’re so happy to be a part of your big day.  Enjoyed seeing some of the other AKLs there too.

Weekend in New York

April surprised me with a super quick trip to NYC to see Ryan Adams at Carnegie Hall!  I was floored that she did that, and was so excited because he wasn’t coming to Atlanta on this tour.  The added bonus was that we got to see him solo at Carnegie Hall.  Such an amazing an iconic venue, and an awesome chance to see something there.

Park Central

We stayed at the Park Central Hotel, which was right across the street from Carnegie Hall and a couple blocks south of Central Park.  The hotel was very well kept, close to the subway, and very reasonably priced for midtown.  I’d definitely stay there again, and recommend it to others.

After we checked into the hotel, we walked around Midtown for a while, and went to the Top of the Rock.  While I’ve been to NYC many times for work and fun over the years, that’s one of the main tourist things that I’ve actually never done!

A better shot of Central Park!

IMG_1284The sun was right in our faces looking towards the Empire State Building, so I couldn’t get a great shot of it in color…  but it looks pretty cool in black and white instead!

This was the only shot I took towards to stage.  The ticket Nazi’s were in full force, so I didn’t try to get anything else!

The next morning, we toured the Tenement Museum, and took in the 9/11 Memorial.  It was very well done, and absolutely massive.  It was hard not to think back about that day and remember where we were, and how we heard the news.

It’s hard to go all the way to New York, and not have some pizza!  At the recommendation of my brother, we enjoyed this pie at John’s of Bleecker Street.

As we made our way back to the hotel to collect our bags and head home, we hung out in Times Square for a little bit to enjoy the people watching!

Next time we’ll have to get to a show on Broadway!

After six years, it’s time to move on from Fairway circle. There’s been a ton of change in my life over the last six years – most notably the addition of my beautiful bride! I’ve loved living here, but I’m excited for what the future holds. We’re moving into an apartment for now, and hoping to find another house to buy soon!
