Rockin' the B Terminal @ ATL

As we close in on one year at Backtime, I get to travel around the country and talk to people (yes, plural) who like the blog. Some enjoy the opinion pieces, or at least enjoy disagreeing with them. Some enjoy the misadventures from the road. But rarely does anyone get any real useful information...until now.

If you happen to be stuck in Atlanta airport for 4 hours, then B Terminal is the place to be.

The first stop is the Sweetwater Draft House and Grill. Good beer selection, decent menu - chili and cobb salad were high quality, solid wines by the glass, and unlike most of Atlanta airport - excellent service with a smile.

It's a little cramped, but if you can grab a seat against the wall, you might be able to plug in your laptop and set up shop. But if you really want to jam on your work, the place to go is Minute Suites.

What it is essentially provides is a pod-sized hotel room at $30 an hour (or $15 for a half-hour)with high-speed internet service, a pull-out sofa, and a plasma screen. It's a brilliant idea and's expensable.

Now I know what you all are thinking. Hotel room in an airport? Hourly rates? Sounds like a mile-high club at ground level to me, an and excellent business start-up plan for a well-connected pimp.

But seriously, it is a great place to get some work done or catch a quick nap without the rat race all around you.

Then maybe catch a Seattle's Best Coffee (Dunkin' Donuts is in terminal A if you still have time) before your next mundane connection.
