First, a few notes about The Highland Tap. I was there Tuesday and I have to tell you, if there was an award for "Best Ambiance" they would win. They have suggested we do a Best Burger contest, which I think will happen this year. Just don't tell my doctor. Their Steak Burger is without question one of the best (if not the best) in the city.
But you cannot duplicate the dungeon like feel of their timeless bar. It's the kind of feel that would accommodate any patron. And of course Donna is one of the best bartenders in town and they provide not just impeccable service, but add a great personal touch as well. It's the kind of place Jay-Z, Newt Gingrich and Justin Timberlake could all fit into. Personally, I think I could see the Magnum PI cast a tree in the forest here.
Josh is the real life TC (except smaller and white) and a great helicopter pilot in Hawaii. If you want an adventure while in Hawaii check out his company:
But back to the Champions. Queue up the music! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdCrZfTkG1c
I love that Freddy Mercury has a Heineken and multiple drinks on the piano and can still belt out one hell of a song. He is unquestionably one of the greatest lead singers of all time. Excluding the short shorts.
Not only were they a great duo, Art Garfunkel may have had the greatest "Jew Fro" of all time. If not, he is the godfather of Jew Fro's.
The other great benefit of Fox Bros are their great sides. I suggest going all in and getting the Frito Pie. Trust me on this one. If you like Frito's and you like Cheese and Chili (if you don't I don't know who you are), you will fall in love with this original number.
As Ric Flair, the16 Time World Heavyeight Champion and the Greatest Champion of All Time would say:
"Whether you like it or not, learn to love it, because its the best thing going. Wooooo!"
A few Flair videos for your enjoyment.
I wanted to recognize my friend Dan who put together a lot of the technical aspects of the tournament. Dan really was squarely in the corner of the French Dip and Original Cuban, the weeks they went out as well. Thanks for your help Dan.
AND it's Final Four Weekend in Atlanta! Which means 30-40 year old white guys walking around in basketball jerseys. Come'on fellas, it's time to take a hard look in the mirror.
