You've never had a hot dog until you've had a Varsity hot dog, preferably with chili!

Nice shot!

Opened 1965, demolished 1997 -- Completed in 1965, Atlanta's first major sports arena hosted a number of notable events over its 31-year lifespan. The Beatles played the place, as did the Atlanta Crackers, who closed out their final season in the new ballpark. Home to three of Atlanta's professional sports teams (the Braves, who relocated from Milwaukee; the Falcons and the soccer Chiefs), Atlanta Stadium saw Braves slugger Hank Aaron become MLB's all-time career home run leader when he hit ...

Plans call for the Cyclorama, one of the city’s most valuable cultural artifacts, to leave its Grant Park home of nearly a century and relocate to a new building at the Atlanta History Center in Buckhead. Zoo Atlanta would receive the existing Cyclorama building in Grant Park, which has housed the massive, panoramic, city-owned painting, depicting the Battle of Atlanta, since 1921. The neoclassical building will be adapted for new uses, thus preserving one of the city's near-century-old ...

Opened 1972, demolished 1997 -- Really now, did anyone in Atlanta ever call it by its true name, "The Omni Coliseum," aside from the TV announcers who pitched a myriad of concerts, pro wrestling events and basketball or hockey games for the place? To the generations of Atlantans who clocked time waiting in line for coveted concert tickets, the Omni was both punchline of a thousand jokes about poor sound and lighting (not to mention its rust-bucket exterior and a roof design that only Waffle ...

Opened 1961, demolished 1980 -- In true Atlanta tradition, what we now know as Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has been named, named again and then re-named, starting life as Candler Field. Then it became Atlanta Municipal Airport, which was called the "Atlanta Airport" by most locals. Then we just called it "Hartsfield" when it expanded and went international. Now we're pretty used to "Hartsfield-Jackson." And the terminal itself? Its first major facelift came in 1961 when a ...

Opened 1907; rebuilt 1924, demolished 1965 -- Also known as Spiller Park or Spiller Field from 1924-32, Ponce de Leon Park was the home ballpark of the Southern League's Atlanta Crackers from 1907-64. The Atlanta Black Crackers of the Negro American League shared the park with the white Crackers team but due to segregation at the time, were not allowed to play at the park when the Crackers had a home game. Flanked by Ponce de Leon Avenue to the south and the Southern Railway tracks to the ...

Built 1910, demolished 1969 -- Direct folks to the Governor's Mansion today and they'll head to the stately, columned building in Buckhead. From 1925-67, though, Georgia governors lived much closer to the State Capitol grounds. The state purchased the late Edwin P. Ansley's 10,000-square-foot mansion in 1925 as a gubernatorial residence and 12 Georgia governors called it home: Clifford Walker, Lamartine Hardman, Richard Russell Jr., Eugene Talmadge, E.D. Rivers, Ellis Arnall, Herman ...

Opened 1893, demolished 1978 -- Perhaps it's unfair to say that the Loew's Grand Theatre is "gone" from the Atlanta landscape. True, the building itself no longer exists. But parts of it live on. Bricks from the old structure were used to build Houston's restaurant on Peachtree and a chandelier from the Grand now hangs in The Tabernacle for a new generation of concertgoers to appreciate. Fitting for a landmark that, during its lifespan, enjoyed an existence first as DeGive's Grand Opera ...
