Woodbury - "The Walking Dead" Filming Location - Senoia, GA

Every fan of "The Walking Dead" needs to eventually take a trip to Senoia, Georgia. The whole Main Street was used in the TV series as the fictional town of Woodbury. In the above still from the show, we are looking north up Main Street. Below is the same location in August of 2016.

The above still shows Michonne and Andrea walking north up Main Street on the east side of the street near Senoia Coffee & Cafe (behind them); below in 2016.

Above shows The Governor and Andrea walking north up Main Street; below in 2016.

Above, Andrea and Michonne walk south, on the west side of Main Street; below in 2016.

In the above still, Merle and the Governor stand on the wall as The Governor hits golf balls. Directly behind them is Main Street. They are physically on Seavy Street hitting the balls west. Below is the same spot in August of 2016.

Nic & Norman's - Senoia, GA

In July of 2016, "Walking Dead" actor Norman Reedus and "Walking Dead" co-creator Greg Nicotero opened a restaurant together called Nic & Norman's. I was fortunate to have dined there in August of 2016, just one month after opening. I had Greg's special burger and it was easily one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. The food was great and the service was exceptional. Eat here and thank me later. You can find it at 20 Main Street in Senoia, Georgia.

Alexandria - "The Walking Dead" Filming Location - Senoia, GA

"The Walking Dead" is currently one of television's biggest shows. On a business trip this week, I was able to find the town used as the fictional 'Alexandria' on the show. They use real houses in a real neighborhood in Senoia, Georgia. Above are three stills from the show. Below is as close as I could get to it because, when I was there three days ago, they were filming. It was still a very cool experience.

Crystal Pepsi & Deep Fried Twinkies

That's right, that weird soda from the 1990's is back for a limited time! I simply couldn't resist trying the 2016 version. Apparently it's the taste of a new generation. Honestly, it just tastes like Pepsi and we all probably won't miss it when it's gone (again).

And if that weren't great enough, Hostess just released a popular State Fair treat: Deep Fried Twinkies! I tried them and I will say they take you right back to the Midway. I actually like them better than regular Twinkies. Nice work Hostess!
