Where should I party next Terez?

In Georgia, it all began with Ben Roethlisberger and his posse of beefy buddies dining at the sushi restaurant near his mansion in the Great Waters section of the 14,000-acre resort. “People approach him here, but this is a laid-back restaurant,” Burton said. “Ben is really a nice guy, and I’m happy when he and his friends come in.” No. 7’s faves: Firecracker roll — spicy tuna, cream cheese and crab — washed down with Japanese rice wine, called sake, or cold Bud Light. On Memorial Day, he treated his offensive line to dinner here. For guests, he buys top-shelf tequila, typically Patron, whether he’s at the Ritz Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation or Long Shot’s, the sports bar just outside Great Waters. “He loves to buy Patron. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen him drink it, but he loves to buy it for his friends — and those big ol’ boys like it,” said the tavern’s owner, Shawn Wiggins. — Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
