For those who don't live here, Atlanta Underground is... pretty much the absolute worst possible place they could have had this event.

Oh, come one man, I just got back from Atlanta last Sunday, I would attend this event If I were there on Nov 11. I agree with tvnewsuy, the Underground is not a good place to hold this event, Cobb Galleria is way better.

I'm praying that we'll be able to attend this event in Atlanta! I can't believe it! Nintendo coming to Underground Atlanta? That's unbelievable. I would have expected them to hold a Nintendo event at Centennial Park, Lenox Mall or The Mall of Georgia.
