Technically the tradition is see a show at the Fox and eat at the Varsity, but sometimes you need a little creative interpretation, right?

I needed to check in on a client downtown yesterday morning, but expected it to be a very quick visit, so Mellie and Cal came along with me in order to have some family time. Since both Cal and myself have had a several year long craving for the greasy, elementary school field trip memory inducing comfort food served up by the Varsity, we made that our destination. Thus came Mellie’s first visit to the Varsity, and my bad parent strike for the week.

Sitting near enough to the counter to be serenaded with the chorus of “Whaddayahave? Whaddayahave? Whaddayahave?” through out our meal, Mellie sampled a fries, an onion ring, and out so happily sucked down some frosted orange (a sort of orange creamsicle milkshake, for those not of this area), not to mention chewed on the cold straw.

Even more than her snacks (I admit, even though I was okay with her taste testing some junk food, a whole meal of it was still a bit much), she had a blast watching the other people, especially the gobs of children that I assume were there for the reason myself and Cal had both been in years past, school field trips to the Fox Theater. After a bit, however, she started to get fussy and we decided it was time to head out. Next stop? The Atlanta Botanical Gardens!
