  1. I have been a regular at Taco-Mac/Summit's Wayside/Charlie Mopps since I move here in 1998. I feel like part of my soul was just ripped out.

    Hopefully another change in name and/or management and my favorite dive will be back in business, and God help them if they dare add natural light or lighting from any source other than ber sign neon!

  2. That us a shame. My friends and I spent numerous nights at the Taco Mac back in the early to mid 90's when we came back to Atlanta from college. That was when County Cork had moved to the Prado, and we would usually make that walk at some pouint. My father and I spent numerous weekend afternoons there having a casual beer or three, eating wings (swimming), catching up, and watching whatever sports game was being televised.

    It eventually changed to Sunnit's Wayside, and then there was an abrupt change to Charlie Mopps Public House due to some inner corporate drama (all of the mugs were thrown out at that point). When that place opened up, it probably had the best draft beer selection in Atlanta, and it was way ahead of the curve in terms of having hard to obtain beers readily available. It was also ahead of the curve in terms of high gravity availability

    I have to admit that while the change from Taco Mac to Summit's was negligible, the change to Public House was more drastic, and both the menu and thhe draft beer list seemed to suffer.

    Many memories of that dark hole, and i will miss it dearly. And john, I think there were skylights at one point, but they covered them up (I think)

    As an aside, Did anyone ever actually hang out in that back area? It was ALWAYS vacant.

  3. The reason for the failure of this establishment was one of the owner's undying desire to make bad business decisions. From continuing to bring in music acts that were not profitable to bringing in already drunk kickball teams to drink pitcher beer. Both of these chased me out on a regular basis The owner did this to himself.
