Thirty-Two Dollar Eggs
The eggs at the Four Seasons cost thirty-two dollars. We stayed there last week, and I saw the menu with my own eyes. The cost is initially jarring, I’ll admit, but in defense of the Four Seasons:
- There are two eggs served with this breakfast. Two! We’re really only talking, then, about sixteen bucks per egg.
- They will prepare the eggs in any style you’d like. You’re not just paying for a meal. You’re purchasing complete and total creative control over these chicken embryos.
- Choices abound with this breakfast! Home fries or grits? Ham or bacon? Whole wheat toast or white? The choices go on and on. Juices. Coffee. I can’t even.
- This breathtaking hotel donated a $500-per-night room to “Prevent Child Abuse in Gordon County, Inc,” a tiny charity an hour (and a world) away from their facility. They put us up in an opulent room that rivaled anything we’d seen in a movie, they valet-parked our Ford Focus with so much professionalism and respect that you’d have thought it was a Bentley, and they made sure we had an amazing stay.
If you’re spending the night in Atlanta, I hope you’ll treat yourself and stay at the Four Seasons. It is bucket-list worthy. (And when they ask you how you’d like your eggs, say “Fabergé.”)
