Road Trip - Tenn/Georgia

Short notice I know, but any MC'rs in or around Talking Rock, Jasper, Georgia or Cleveland, TN?? If your reading this in the afternoon on Thursday 4/9/2010 your too late.

My brother and I are heading to Talking Rock, GA Thursday to pick up his new craft on Friday morning and I am wondering if there is anything to do down there.

Any good places to stay?
Any good places to Eat?
Any good places to DRINK?

Thanks guys!

Hooters for food, Hooters for drink, and maybe a Hooter's waitress or two to spend the night with, if your a real heavy tipper.
I thought we had taught you better , but......................

I drive through Jasper and Talking Rock to get to our place on Blue Ridge.

I don't know downtown Jasper at all, Blue Ridge, which is about 30 minutes to the north, has several new excellent restaurants I could recommend, and a new microbrewery.

Ellijay, which is about 15 minutes north of Jasper, has a great BBQ place - Col. Poole's. (The proprietor, Col. Poole, is a very active Republican). There is another BBQ place, also very good a few minutes up the road, who's proprietor is a very active (southern, now alienated) Democrat.

These are small towns, in mostly dry counties, (especially until the last few years) not much of anywhere to get a drink.

I guess this MC was used on Carter's Lake?

The counties that Jasper and Ellijay are in aren't dry anymore as there is at least one liquor store in each, but I'm not aware of any restaurants that serve. Then again, the downtown areas that are a little off the highway probably have stuff that I don't know about.

Much of North Ga was dry just a few years ago, and some still is. The district that these counties are in didn't get named the 4th most conservative district in the country for nothing. (At least you know these folks aren't responsible for Obama)

Thanks guys for all the help. On the road right now, 571 miles to go. We are staying in Jasper and the seller told us of a place called Fatz that serves drinks and food. Here is the boat we are picking up. I kind of think it looks like that 196 bxroads is considering on his thread.
