29. I've spent many happy hours sipping fine beer at the Globe
and listening to music at the 40 Watt Club(four different locations)among many other venues! I love this little town!

BTW, we're having a DU meetup in Atlanta at the Graveyard in East Atlanta on February 25 at 7pm. See the Georgia forum for more info and address/phone #'s etc! Our favorite AAR people, Mike and Kathy Malloy, are going to attend along with lots of other DUers! We hope to see you there!

105. You should have; people here have a strong sense of place.
Note how well my thread about "towns you've been to that you don't think other people have" has been doing. I am thunderstruck that it's over 600 replies.

Duers like "thinking posts" like this one. I'm NOT surprised it's doing well.

I'm glad you thought of the question, because I'm enjoying reading the answers.
