I second the Avalon and definitely check out El Felix and Bocado burger there.  I have lived 2.5 miles from work for 7 years and it's the best thing I've ever done for me.  If you don't like traffic, I highly suggest that too.

If you are looking for walking distance to entertainment, you have to live in Buckhead/Midtown or surrounding areas.  But make no mistake, a drive to work in Alpharetta won't be that fun.  Otherwise, Alpharetta/Roswell/Johns Creek are all great areas to live in.

Royal Caribbean is my favorite affordable cruise line, but Norwegian isn't far behind.  The good thing about Norwegian is the freestyle dining.  You can go to dinner whenever you want.  On Royal Caribbean you have to choose between two dinner times (5:30 & 8:00PM or something like that).  I took a Norwegian cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean just because that worked out better for us.  If you have the chance to visit Dubrovnik, Croatia I highly recommend it.  It is easily one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  

If you drink A LOT, then a drink package is worth it.  Just do the simple math on how many drinks you'd have to consume to make it worth it.  Excursions are also a ripoff because the cruise line has to get their cut, so try to do a little research beforehand to see if you can organize something yourself.  Sometimes the only route to go is through the cruise line, though.

Best: 2006 The Game like you.  It was also the best seats I've ever had  2nd would be the 2012 Purdue game (Kenny G baby!)

Worst: Tie between 2003 Michigan game at Michigan and 2013 Big 10 Championship Game - give the damn ball to El Guapo!

I live in Atlanta now, and I can attest that Stephen Collier has zero room to talk.  We were let out of work several hours early today because snow was in the forecast.  Having said that, it's not that Atlanta drivers are bad (even though they are), it's that the city has absolutely no way to deal with snow/ice.  Black ice ain't no joke!

Assuming you switched to Geico?  While you're at it, did you stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night?
