Reasons to visit Macon

(from the Onion)


To be fair, Macon is actually a decently nice town. And the Cherry Blossom Festival in March is always pretty nice. The Onion is right, of course, in pointing out that Macon is the birthplace of th “mouth harp” or kazoo. It is also home to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame (which, unlike the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, has gotten it right and inducted Dale Murphy).

    Try moving from Connecticut to Macon for your last year of high school, Macon won’t seem like a nice little town. When I lived there a decade ago, Macon seemed to be a top spot for teenage pregnancy and biggots.

    Macon also has Nu-Way Weiners. The best hot-dogs anywhere in the world. Yes, even better than The Varsity.

    But not better than Clark Dog, the Weiner’s Circle or any Vienna Beef chardog in Chicago.

    Oh, Will, I have to agree with the Vienna Beef chardog… mmmm… chicago style dogs are so good.

    I was going to post what Dave said – & yes I’ve eaten hot dogs in Chicago & NYC. But if you’re southern, Nu-way is the way hot dogs are meant to be made. I’ve been drooling over the idea of chili slaw dogs since yesterday, those Nathan hot dogs didn’t do it for me.

    Lived there for two years, 2002-2004. What a joke of a town! It could be a great little city, as it very beautiful and has so much too offer, but with the division still between the blacks and whites, it will never amount to anything.

    Although, after living here in Tampa for a year, I’d gladly go back.
