    Arby’s: Not only that, but they are moving into the building at Peachtree Center West, across from the Marta Station. How do I know? (because I work in that building right now… and all anyone is talking about is that big hat they are going to put on the outside of the building.)

    Oh dear…a huge cowboy hat on Peachtree St? Maybe that’ll be more incentive for the NASCAR museum.
