1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Gourmet magazine caused quite a stir a few years ago when it named the Highland Bar & Grill in Birmingham, Ala. the 5th best restaurant in the USA.
    I finally tried it and Gourmet may be right. It was wonderful, both food and service. They even followed the BOR to the letter. Imagine, little Birmingham has more sophisticated service than exists in Atlanta.
    We also tried its sister more Italian place, Bottega, and it may even be better. Chez FonFon (next door to Highland Bar & Grill) is open, but we had no time to try it too, as we had filled both dinner spots and it is only open for lunch Tues-Friday. Head south, guys.

    I ate at highlands back in Feb. It was very nice, but I wouldn't say it was 5th best restaurant in America. Just my .02
