The Whistle Stop Cafe

I absolutely love my job! It is hard to describe exactly what I do, but if I had to describe it I guess I would say that I am in public relations. Although, my coworker, Heather, says that my job title should be social butterfly. I think that is also an accurate description!
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to join the retirees from the company on a retiree outing. Part of my job is to plan the outing and to make sure it goes smoothly. The retirees always enjoy getting together and going on a day trip. I enjoy the trip as much as the retirees! I enjoy visiting new places and hearing all of the stories that they have to tell!

My favorite part of yesterday was visiting Juliette, GA. What is in Juliette you ask? Well, nothing really.....except for The Whistle Stop Cafe. The Whistle Stop Cafe was the little cafe made famous by the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. If you haven't seen the movie, you must go rent it now! If you find yourself close to Juliette, you must go eat at The Whistle Stop Cafe. The food is yummy, but the atmosphere is even better! I felt like I had been transported back in time or at least transported into the movie. What fun! If you visit, don't forget to order the fried green tomatoes! Here are a few photos from my visit.

I hope the food was good!
You know that cafe was the setting for the movie. My parents ran the real cafe for years. Fannie Flagg wrote the story about her Great Aunt Bess who owned our cafe 30 years ago.
It is a fun story!
