Quick question.

Smoking is still allowed in bars in Atlanta, yes?

I hope so.

Yes... you can smoke in the bars here. Just not most restaurants. Maybe I will see some of you!

Yes, clarity on Hotels is forthcoming, I'm still working on that. But... from the beginning, its been recommended folks stay at the Colony Square...where there is a post further back in this thread.  BUT, I will repost with some updated info. Just give me a couple more days.  ~jordon

Very interested in coming.  Was wondering  if I could just spend the nights at the EAGLE.  Probably wouldn't have any trouble taking a shower.  Oh how I love that bar!!!

To those interested in attending a Southern Gathering in Atlanta May 19th 2007 please note.
I drove down to look at two Hotels. All along I leaned towards the Sheraton at Colony Square as dd a few others. This hotel was featured in a thread you can re-read from Dan J  information was compiled by Dennis.
A good hotel with good location to night activities in Atlanta. The group room rate is $99.00 (plus tax) Pretty good deal.
I also drove around and looked at couple resturants, and found a decent gay owned resturant within walking distance of above mentioned hotel..."Eiensteins" (also suggested by someone) Brunch on Sunday. prices range from $8 to $19.  Sunday 10am till 4pm. We can set a time later.

As stated before, this is a social meet and greet. No one has to stay at the suggested hotel, but its a good deal and close to everything in the Atlanta gay district. Please reread the post dated Feb. 6 by DanJ

Twofires suggested we go to Stone Mtn. please reread his post of March 27 it contains a link. 

my suggestion is Friday Saturday Sunday weekend of May 19 as we all previously decided. There will be lots to do and alot of fun meeting and partying down.

BUT.......I NEED YOUR HELP IN BEING SURE YOU WILL COME. PLEASE INDICATE FOR SURE IF YOU ARE COMING!!!!!!!. Just post it in your reply.  Please reread the hotel post dated  FEB 6 from DANJ to get hotel phone number. Sheraton Colony Square.

Thanks, ~jordon   _____ you can decide for yourself the agenda... Stone Mtn. Saturday, party Friday Saturday night, Brunch Sunday.. something like that ..

I will NOT be able to attend.

I wish I could come.  I've never been to Atlanta and would love to meet some of you in person.  But unfortunately, I have job duties that weekend that I cannot get out of.  Hopefully there will be another opportunity soon.

I hate to sound vague but I will make my final decision about Atlanta a week or two prior. It will all hinge on moolah and work...if I can make it I'll jump in the car and go. I'm gonna try my best.

I really, really hate to have to do this... but since I've gotten a new job... and I'll only have been there a month (and out of training for a week) by the time this thing goes around, I won't be able to go.

I'm sorry... but I can't ask for days off when I've only been there for a few weeks.

Lots of rustic camping slots still available; even some w/ electric!

cheaper than a hotel in Atl and twice the fun!

I'm sorry if my actions prompted the cancellation of the gathering but it seemed moribund even before I contributed to the demise.

I have non-refundable airfare and non-refundable hotel reservations at the Indigo for 5/18 - 5/22 (5/23 checkout).  If anyone wants the hotel room I'll be glad to hop on the plane, secure the hotel room, then hop on the next plane back (I'm the only one who can check in since I got a special deal).  You'd have to pay for room service or a hotel escort or that stuff.

If anyone is interested let me know!
