Day 24 - Lisa

This is historic downtown Stone Mountain.  It's about a 1/4 mile of very old buildings, most empty now, a few restaurants, niche retail outlets, cafe, hair salon, etc.  When I first came to Georgia back in the late 80's this little block of businesses was thriving.  It was wall to wall people on the weekends.  Now its a ghost town.  Its sad as its a very cool little area.  While relocating last year I used to eat dinner quite a bit at "Wells Cargo" a small restaurant run by a daughter/mother combination.  Good food and very eclectic decorum of antiques inside.  The tables and dishware are a funky mismatch with candlelit meals. We'd go in on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and watch American Idol while eating.  Best homemade fries ever!  She always has a wide variety of music playing.  I hope they can withstand this downturn because they are good people.
