To any Saints fans in Atlanta

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I knew it was going to happen one day. I hate to leave the beautiful Gulf Coast, but today is my last day in Destin and I'm officially moving to Atlanta (it's a good thing). But, if any of you ...

Dude, welcome to my world. Personally I got frustrated with trying to find a consistent place to watch games without having to outlay a bunch of cheddar to do so. So I signed up for NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV. Even though I have to plunk down $270 for a season I know exactly when and where the game is going to be.

The worst part of being in Atlanta of course is having to listen to the Falcons fans whine and complain all the time. Tune your radio to 680 TheFan to see what I'm talking about.

SFIAH

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

Dude, I don't know how leaving Destin (Beatiful, warm delightful beaches with suntanning ladies) for ATL (Falcons, gangs, crime, Braves) is a good thing. New paycheck must be kicka$$!

Re: To any Saints fans in Atlanta

Bobby Hebert used to own a spot just outside the Perimeter somewhere, a little north up 400. But I can't think of the name of it. Was it the Bayou Room? Yeah, I think that was it. It had a regular following of about 15 people that watched the games - the place served gumbo and crawfish, Abita beer, etc.

But since that place closed, I don't know of any spots that cater to Saints fans. I've been gone about 2 years though, so maybe some new place has opened up that I don't know about. I'll email an old buddy and see if he knows of any places.

can anyone help me id this tune? it goes thwap thwap boom tch boom tch boom tch.

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!

Oh, I'm a Braves fan. I would say that's the only thing good.

Re: To any Saints fans in Atlanta

Okay everyone in Atlanta....just a quick update. The Copeland's restaurant by the AMC theater on Cumberland Parkway is THE PLACE to watch Saints games. Huge lounge area, $2.50 Abita, $5 apps and there were about 30 Saints fans there (just in jerseys).

If anyone can make it, let me know!!
