    The next Southeast POA meet-up is in the works. The plan is to meet for lunch at The Flying Machine located on field at LZU (SE enough for ya @mscard88?) around lunchtime, chat and enjoy hanging out over some $300 hamburgers.

    The date is set for February 24. Hope to see some familiar faces and meet new ones too. Looking forward to another exciting day!

    I'm sort of tired of all of the hookers and blow party suggestions. I don't do drugs.

    I voted for the 17th, but whatever date that gets @mscard88 to the party is fine with me. :)

    LOL. You missed the joke in my reply. I just said I don't do drugs (the blow). I didn't say anything about the other thing.

    It's like when I tell folks that I used to be young and dumb but not anymore. I got old.

    Anything going on a DeKalb-Peachtree? Used to excellent big burgers at that café upstairs (Upwind?), and the Bomber Sq restaurant. If the other closes that is.

    I thought the plan was to wait for @mscard88 to commit to a date and then the rest of us vote for the other option. :dunno:

    See, I thought of that too. Figured you Atlantic guys would do something like that. So I figure I'll tell you one date, and actually up on the other date. Should work huh.

    Nah... we'd use double reverse psychology to reverse your reverse psychology.

    I'm not saying no, but the Downwind became a lot less fun after 9/11 when they implemented security measures, apparently designed to ruin ramp access to the Downwind. Beyond that, PDK has ramp fees, which chap my ass.

    And that's all I've got to say about that.

    I would say to plan on The Flying Machine and have the Downwind at PDK as a plan "B"

    Yeah, I tried looking at all of airports in the area with on field restaurants and LZU makes the most sense, convenience wise.

    I dropped off three passengers at Epps at PDK on Monday and had lunch at the Downwind. $40 ramp fee.

    Agree. That would make it a $200 burger run.

    You are right... I moved out of Gwinnett last year to the north side of Atlanta... The kids refer to it as GwiMexico.

    I picked up those same passengers at Signature at Fulton County KFTY on Tuesday. $100 facility fee. (But they had M&Ms)

    Still a lot less then their tickets for the national championship game they came here for, I’ll bet.
