On Friday night, Jason and I decided to go to Farm Burger for dinner. For some reason, in the past year or so, Atlanta has had an influx of burger places pop up. They usually have a veggie burger on the menu, so I am always game to try them. Plus, Jason loves burgers.
The restaurant was still crowded at 8:30pm. We managed to snag two spots at the bar. I had the veggie burger with a side salad and Jason had a regular burger with fries. While they were both good, we just weren’t that impressed. I really wished that they offered avocado for a topping. THey had all kinds of interesting topping choices, but no avocado. We were impressed, however, when our total bill came to $17.
After dinner, we decided to go to a bar since we were already in Decatur. First we tried Mac McGee’s – too crowded. Then we tried The Square Pub, which I guess is pretty new – also too crowded. So finally, we drove over to Twain’s and managed to find a table. But then no one came to serve us. We waited there for like 10 minutes before deciding to scrap the bar idea and get a Red Box movie instead.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to see more movies. I know it’s a silly thing to resolve to do, but it’s fun and enjoyable. Resolutions are usually about stopping doing bad things; I thought it would be fun to have a purely fun one in there.
Aside, from seeing more movies in general, I have a goal to see all the Oscar contender movies before the actual Oscar’s. I decided to do this when the nominations came out and I realized that I’d already seen half of them. Oddly enough, one that we hadn’t seen yet was The Socal Network, so we picked that up from the Red Box. And then, when I went to return it, I got Winter’s Bone.
Here’s what I’ve seen so far and the order that I liked them. I liked all of them, really, but if I had to list them, here they are:
1. 127 Hours
2. Black Swan
3. The Social Network
4. Winter’s Bone
6 Toy Story 3
7. The Fighter
Have you seen any of the Oscar contenders? What was your favorite?
