Good Day Atlanta Viewer Information April 15, 2016

- Premiere Motorcycle Race Speeds Through Road Atlanta:  The 2016 MotoAmerica schedule includes stops at New Jersey Motorsports Park, Virginia International Raceway, and Utah Motorsports Campus.  But before racers get to any of those spots, they'll be navigating the twists and turns at Road Atlanta!  Braselton's Road Atlanta is round 2 on the 2016 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship schedule.  MotoAmerica is emerging as the new premiere professional motorcycle racing series in North America, and is sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and FIM North America.  The race at Road Atlanta will take place on April 15-17, and will feature some of the country's top motorcycle racers.  Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning at Road Atlanta, getting a behind-the-scenes look at this unique and exciting sport.   

Burgers With Buck with Bone Lick BBQ: If you are 40 years old or older, you no doubt remember that vintage, time-honored, and quite catchy McDonald's, Big Mac jingle.

Go ahead...say it with me. 

"Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun."

Brings back a lot of memories, doesn't it?

Well now there's a new twist on that old classic at Atlanta's Bone Lick BBQ.  It is called La Pig Mac, and after one small edit...the jingle still applies.

Substitute the word beef for pork, and you get a much bigger and much better version of the iconic American hamburger.  The special sauce is remoulade, and the pickles are house made.  Now while the ingredients are reminiscent of the Big Mac, that is where the similarities end.  No offense to McDonald's or the Big Mac, it is a very good fast food burger, but it does not compare to La Pig Mac.

And in the spirit of the old Ron Popeil infomercials...but wait, there's more.  Mike and the staff at the Edgewood location give you the option of taking your La Pig Mac to the next level.  In their words, you can go 'Buck Wild' by upgrading (or should I say supersizing) to the 'What the Buck' burger, which consists of a third all pork pattie and three strips of bacon (if you're scoring at home).

As you can imagine, the staff at #BurgersWithBuck is once again humbled to have another delicious burger bearing our name.  We think you should give it a try...that is of course if you are ready to go 'Buck Wild' (we usually are). 

If not, we highly recommend 'La Pig Mac'.
