            Sadly, the voice of the Varsity is now silent. Very sad to hear the news of this wonderful character's passing. I've never been to The Varsity. But, I felt like I knew this man because of all the press he's received over the years.

              No Erby here, but if you have never been, I thought you might enjoy this:

                I'm truly saddened to hear this news.

                The Varsity is legendary. In fact, I can't visit Atlanta without stopping there.

                Before he retired, I always ordered at Erby's register. Not only did I want 2 chili slaw dogs and a Frosted Orange, but I only wanted to buy them from Erby! There were probably thousands of customers who felt the same way.
