Season's Greetings!




Atlanta Marriott Gwinnett Place

Atlanta Marriott Gwinnett Place

Wedding invitations are handled by the Mrs., along with purchasing the gifts and cards. My responsibility is getting us to and from the event. This particular November wedding was located in Gwinnett County Georgia, quite a distance from where we reside so we decided to make it a Weekend Getaway.

As I began my search for hotels and attractions the Mrs. looked at the computer screen, looked at me and said, "Pick a hotel that's close to Discover Mills." I had no idea what Discover Mills was, just shook my head and said, "Sure thing." At that point all hotel searches ceased and my Google search for Discover Mills returned just as I suspected; just knew it had to do with shopping. Boy did it ever!

A 1,200,000-square-foot, single story shopping mall in Lawrenceville, Georgia with over 180 specialty retailers. 13 anchors as well as a variety of theme restaurants, casual dining and entertainment venues. Her dream-come-true and my nightmare. As I was searching for hotels in Gwinnett I noticed the ECHL (East Coast Hockey League) has a AA local team, the Gwinnett Gladiators that will be playing at home that same weekend. No Discover Mills for me!
