Metro Café Diner

My first reaction after walking in from visiting the furry convention: "Um, this is weird." Yes, *after* the furries. Loud. Tacky. And open.
The food is exactly what you expect in that time between "oh, we should head out" and "OH, when's the *LAST* MARTA train?" Service was sufficient to deliver us out towards MARTA before the second-to-last train, even. The food took a while to arrive, but they were packed. The waitress even asked about splitting the check before we could tell her. They had sufficiently gluten-free dishes for those of us who needed them.
Karaoke was buzzing along downstairs. The diner was filled with a huge variety of people, and they looked like they were having fun. We were on our separately homeward bound, slightly stumbly legs of fun. If I were single and downtown often or lived nearby, I think I'd be back for more than a late-night snack. As it is, I might end up here again, but I'm not setting out with Metro Café Diner as a destination.
