The hot dog menu includes:
-Classic hot dog with sauerkraut & HD mustard
-Red haute dog with brisket chili, pepper jack foam, Vidalia onion
-Fennel sausage with San Marzano ketchup, fontina, & grilled radicchio
-Chicken-apple sausage, herbed creme fraiche, walnuts, sour grape relish

Two very cute actresses joined us on Better Mornings Atlanta this past week. 8 year old Maggie Jones and her 10 year old sister Mary-Charles Jones.
The sisters simply steal the show as Ren’s little nieces in the new movie Footloose… a remake of the Kevin Bacon movie from several years ago. They girls are adorable and they’re from Atlanta.

Later this year, Maggie will be an actor in the film WE BOUGHT A ZOO starring Scarlett Johansson, Matt Damon and Elle Fanning and Mary-Charles played a young Miley Cyrus for many years on Hannah Montana.

FOOTLOOSE stars newcomer Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough. The film is directed by Craig Brewer (HUSTLE & FLOW, BLACK SNAKE MOAN).

BMA takes on Netherworld

We had a great time a couple of weeks ago really getting into character at Netherworld Haunted House in Norcross. The Nightmare King transformed all three of us into some pretty ghoulish creatures. If you’ve never been to Netherworld you have to experience it. I am certainly not a fan of scary movies or anything that goes bump in the night… but I have to say I had a blast while screaming and laughing while experiencing Netherworld as one of the thousands of guests they get each night.

It was so great to meet Michelle Williams, formerly of Destiny’s Child and Ann Nesby, formerly of Sounds of Blackness when they came to visit us for the 9am edition of Better Mornings Atlanta. They were in town promoting their new stage play, “What My Husband Doesn’t Know.”
It’s a David E. Talbert play and it brings to life a mesmerizing tale of lust, lies and temptation that puts a whole new twist on the “fatal attraction” theme. The play centers on the stunning Lena Summer (Williams). Lena has it all—big house, loving daughter, wealthy husband. But her husband,is so wrapped up in his construction business that the other side of Lena’s bed is too cold too often. When temptation comes along in the form of a handsome handyman named Morris Chestnut, Lena gives in to her desires and a torrid affair ensues. Ann Nesby plays Lena’s mother.
