Thomas Lanford, Jr.

Thomas Lanford, Jr aka: Lan4Dawg, is probably best known for his themed menus and tail-gates for every game–including several that have appeared in various cook books, news paper & magazine articles and even a television feature. Having been in the restaurant business for many years he takes food and beverage very seriously and tries to make a tail-gate more of an experience than a bucket of chicken and a lawn chair.

Despite attending Emory University in Atlanta he has been a life-long Georgia fan but did not take it really seriously until he met (& later married–at their tail-gate) Georgia alumna Holly, aka FussDawg who is the world’s biggest UGA fan (as well as the Atlanta Braves, Hawks, & Falcons). Shortly after they met they began attending UGA games in Athens and the next year decided to start attending the away games as well so have spent almost thirty years following UGA football attending every game both home and away with only a handful of misses. Both are also fans of all UGA sports but primarily the football team and the Lady Dawgs basketball teams.

Interests are history–especially Southern history and War Between the States, food & wine/beverage, travel, genealogy, college sports–especially UGA naturally, and taking care of the Fuss and the cats.
