Whenever I am down in the A (I currently live in Athens because I go to UGA although I am from Stone Mountain), I always hit up MJQ's on Friday nights. Classic hip-hop spinning all night (no mainstream stuff) and they always have a good mix of people there. Just make sure to take cash, because they only accept cash.

But yes, the ATL is quite spread out. Some cats prefer Atlantic Station, a few still mess with Buckhead, still more hit Sutra, Compound and spots like that, and others keep it moving to the westside and hit spots like the Pool Palace, I mean there are so many places it just depends on where you live and where you want to hang out. It also depends on the scene you prefer as well. Each spot has a certain and distinct type of clientele. For instance, cats who mess with the [Virginia] Highlands probably are not the same cats who can be found at spots on the westside. Well, thats my two cents. Indeed.

If you are basing you decision on where to go to college on which college/city gives you best access to sneakers, then I personally think that is quite problematic. Rather, your decision should be based on which school is better, especially with regards to your intended major. UGA is a better school than Ga State in various academic aspects, but I am sure there are certain programs at State that are better than UGAs. And then there is Ga Tech that is one of the premiere tech schools in the nation, so again, the best school is very dependent on what your program of study is.

State is a commuter school, and does not have a true college atmosphere in the sense that most cats that go there live all over Atlanta and therefore it does foster the same atmosphere as UGA does. Still, going to State provides you with access to all the wonders of the ATL, which far surpass what we have in Athens. You also have numerous other schools in the metropolitan area (all the HBCs, Ga Tech, etc) so there are a plethora of college age cats in the area. Atlanta has more clubs, more to do, a more varied (demographically) population, etc. But, Athens does have its perks. Athens has a plethora of bars (over 100) in a very small area that is basically 5 or 6 blocks downtown, unlike the ATL where everything is spread out. Drinking is also absurdly cheaper in Athens than the in the ATL. UGA also has pretty good football team, in the SEC nonetheless, and football is basically God up here, and going to games (along with gaming culture such as tailgating) is fun stuff. Sanford Stadium (the UGA football stadium) seats over 90,000 people (that is A LOT, esp. considering that the Georgia Dome only seats around 70,000). UGAs student population is lass varied demographically though. Again, being that Atlanta is only an hour drive away, I still go down pretty often for concerts (such as the recent Nas concert) and to hit certain clubs with my ATL peeps on occasion. There are numerous other perks to both the ATL and the ATH that I do not feel like listing because it would take forever. I suggest visiting both schools and talking to students as well as seeing for yourself what they are like.

As for getting sneakers in Athens, you can still get the regular stuff like GR Jordans and whatnot, but you are not going to find any spot up here that have a LS account or any place that has the newest Forces and Dunks. Atlanta is only an hour drive away, so if there is some sneaker that I am fiending for then I will just make the drive and cop or get some of my peoples in the A to buy it for me. I am down in the ATL a good bit on the weekends anyhow, so its not that big of a deal for me. Also, I personally for the most part only mess with older/vintage kicks, so my main sources for those types of shoes are Ebay or forums like NT.

I hope that helps.

Indeed.

i mean its not all based on kicks... its just that plays a small role in deciding... because ive tried to weigh out all other aspects...
and the biggest ordeal seems to be money, but i kinda didnt do any scholarships (oops)... because ive been excepted to both, and like an idiot i didn apply to ga tech, altho they sent me an application waiver...
if i go to state, i basically have a part time job or two lined up... if i go to uga, nothing that i know of...
but i do kinda want the college experience of UGA...
only 12 days to make a decision... uh oh...

Atlanta is where it's at. It's mad live there. Savannah is a pretty nice city. SAV has more of a "retirement" atmosphere.
