A few years ago, I accidentally turned on the TV on a Sunday afternoon and saw a building on Peachtree where I worked while in law school (a few blocks from the school itself).  I put the remote down.  Then I saw Freedom Parkway, and a dude on a horse trotting along side scores of abandoned cars.  It looked like the familiar scene I’d see every evening when driving home from work (other than the cop on a horse), but something was different…oh yes, there were zombies shuffling…

My birthday is on June 7, but rather than wait around for next Saturday, I decided to celebrate for a week, like my Jewish friends do in the winter! Friday night, I saw Journey and Steve Miller live at Lakewood, and it was awesome.  See this video of “Don’t Stop Believing” I shot on Instgram?  Powerful.  And here’s Steve and his band: Saturday, I spent all day prepping and smoking 6 of these: See the chunk out of the bottom right corner?  Yeah.  Sometimes you can’t wait for…
