Here's What You Do does a new day plan every day.  Like us on Facebook below to get updates on your Facebook page.

Here's what you do Monday

First:  Start the day with breakfast at the Flying Biscuit, say around 11.  Go to the original Flying Biscuit in Candler Park.  Franchised of late, the FB is losing some of its charm, but the original FB is still darn good.  The 40 minute wait on weekends should prove that!  The place that inspired it all, the original FB has the purple and green Dr. Suess feeling and well-worn crooked wood floors.  Have the egg-ceptional eggs (eggs on black bean cakes topped with over-roasted tomatillo salso, feta & sour cream), the Clifton omelette (Three large farm fresh eggs stuffed with goat cheese and mushrooms, topped with warm tomato coulis and basil, served with creamy dreamy grits), or the daily scramble.  ($ - $10 per person).

Flying Biscuit for Breakfast.

Second: Since you're in Candler Park.  Do a little shopping on McLendon.  Walk off your breakfast by checking out the store fronts in Candler Park next to the Flying Biscuit.  Donna Van Gogh's art consignment shop has great work from local artists.  Ask to see some Chris Warner work.  Full Moon records has a lot of vinyl you might have been looking for to get your old turntable going again.  And, there's great vintage dress shopping - including wedding dresses - in Kelly's closet and the Bridal Shop. ($ - $Free to window shop.  Buy if something strikes your fancy).

Fourth:  Nap time.  What better way to welcome November than a nap in the Fall.

Fifth:  Multiple personalities.  Go see the work of ten talented artists.  $Free.

Finally:  Dinner at Flip Burger.  Head on over to Richard Blais' burger joint extraordinaire on Howell Mill.  If you haven't been before, just have the classic to establish your base.  If not, experiment with the lamburger, the farmer burger, or the butcher's cut.  Pair with a krispy kreme shake.  $15 per person.

Carbon Footprint:

Today's full day plan can take up to about 18 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta.  The 18 miles equates to about 14 pounds of carbon dioxide, or the carbon sequestered by about 3 sq feet of forest.  Calculations are based on the U.S. EPA's green house gas equivalencies calculator.  

18 miles of driving
14 pounds of carbon dioxide
3 square feet of forest would be required to sequester this carbon.

Wonder why a gallon of gas (about 6 pounds) generates 20 pounds of green house gas?  Check out this article at
