Yes , it is a big ("the biggest in the World" by some measure), but I was not very impressed. The place is designed for kids, and has little information aimed at adults.. And it is very crowded with kids and full of little fast food stands.. I have been to many aquariums, I think the best I have seen is that of Lisbon, Portugal; which is quite large and aimed more at education of the public of all ages in interest of encouraging conservation than just amusement. The one in Lisbon also has a much nicer setup. The New Orleans aquarium I also feel is far superior to this one in terms of the experience, even if it is not as big. Much of the big-ness of this one is due to the fact that they have Beluga whales. yes, it is quite impressive to see a Beluga whale in an aquarium.. for reasons like that I would say it is worth going if you like aquariums, just be prepared for the noise of lots of screaming kids, and be prepared to be treated like a kid by the aquarium.. Of all the major Atlanta attractions which I visited, I found this to be the one that least lived up to my expectations..

At the rateclubs wine tasting, I was wondering where I should go for dinner in Old City, but then realized that I was among rateclubsers. George pointed me towards National Mechanics, and my stomach was very glad he did. Beer prices are more than fair, they're cheap! (well, as long as you stick to the local fare) I shared a quasi-light dinner consisting of your standard bar/restaurant food - burger, fries and calamari rings. Although standard, some places do mess a meal like this up; I'm glad to say National Mechanics came out with flying colors. Loved the decor! Plants stuck in jars? Crazy print hanging about the toilet? Random dog statues with colored lightbulbs sticking out of their butts? Yes, please! This place reeks of individuality, in a good way. Sound atmosphere was great too. The high ceilings prevent others' conversations from intruding, but give a nice background drone. I WAS going to take off 1 star, because the service was sort of shoddy. Only 2 servers for a Thursday night didn't cut it. But our server made an effort (she ran by, asking how our meal was and left before our answer; but hey, it's the thought that counts). National Mechanics - oozing with personality, a great place for drinks and groups, and even a date.
