Going back to one of my earliest lists (101 Favorite Restaurants, Atlanta Magazine, August, 2006) led us to today’s dining destination, Penang Malaysian Cuisine.  Heading north on Buford Highway from downtown, I originally thought we were going to be able to knock off two spots in one stop, as they both were listed as being […]


On this rainy Saturday evening, we headed down to Fairburn to meet up with some friends to see “110 in the Shade” at the theater downtown.  They had picked up the tickets for a group of ten of us and we said that we’d meet at Oz Pizza for dinner before the show.  We arrived […]
