Wow, what a crazy place! We went to an Atlanta establishment tonight with some friends - arguably one of the best BBQ places in the south. It's Fat Matt's Rib Shack located in midtown and it was great! (It's even mentioned as THE place for BBQ in Hotlanta in the movie, "Up in the Air" with George Clooney.)

None of us had been there before and for our group of 8 people, the first come - first serve, tiny, tiny seating meant we split up among 3 tables for most of the meal. No matter though, we all sat together by the end.
They have live blues music every night and tonight was no exception - we heard a couple numbers before heading out.
The highlight though was the delicious chopped pork, BBQ chicken, ribs, and potato salad. And maybe the best pecan pie I've ever had.
Oh, and we even had some twin brothers from Memphis who were on American Idol stand up and give an impromptu a capella performance.
What a great night! Thanks to my friend Igor for inviting us and HELLO to our new friends we met!
