So, Missy and I are in Atlanta this weekend with a bunch of our co-workers, attending the twice-yearly madness that is AMERICASMART, Giving up a weekend for work always sucks, but it's especially hard on us this time because we are both sick - I'm on the tail end of a terrible cold, and Missy is just getting into the worst stage of the cold I just passed on to her, like a big germ and virus-covered olympic torch. We got to the hotel well before check-in time, so we ended up walking the Mart first. I clicked off a couple of photos of an anonymous snacker in one of the many bridges that connect the three buildings that make up AmericasMart:
The company put us up at this new hotel called HYATT PLACE. The hotel is nicely designed with a hip, micro hotel feel...like, you can get a Starbucks coffee and a biscotti from the same person that just checked you in...and from the same counter that you just checked in at...It's probably one of the coolest and nicest hotels we've ever stayed at downtown...
We really dug these chunky buttons in the elevator. They were like over-sized vintage typewriter buttons:
At first, we were concerned with the view out our window, which looked down on the back patio area of MAX LAGER, the restaurant-slash-bar next door to Hyatt Place. We were worried that there would be a lot of noise, but then realized that the cold winter weather would guarantee that no one would be sitting outside...
Missy, feeling quite miserable, wasted no time passing out:
