Observations from Rome, Ga.
The spicy alfredo sauce at the Bella Rosa Grill in the parking lot is worth the drive 40 miles north of Atlanta and 25 miles west.
The Braves' unique food offering: fried bologna sandwich at Bubba's BBQ Barn.
They charge $3 for programs, unlike most parks.
It was really all about this storm that rolled in twenty minutes before first pitch and drowned all of northwest Georgia (photo courtesy of Dalya Adams).
