    You'll probably eat it since it's on the bottom of your building, but lyla lila just opened recently and I assume it's going to be really good.

    Went last night. Food, beer, and service was all very good. Going to be hitting it up a lot since it’s about half a mile from me.

    Looking to get my dad and stepmom a gift card to a restaurant for Xmas, preferable on the newer side so they haven't been there yet. Also ideally would be able to buy the gift card online since I'm out of town but I can wade through that.

    They live in Kirkwood and work in West Midtown/Vinings but probably anywhere in Atlanta proper would be fine.

    Where are y'all loving?

    Went down to see Lebron v Trae on Sunday. I was very entertained by the 30+ ATVs and motorcycles doing wheelies down Northside as we sat in traffic.

    Then we turned the corner to see three young men riding horses through traffic... so, that happened. I have so many questions, primarily, where did they ride in from?

    Staying downtown for the Peach Bowl. Any recommendations for restaurants? I’ll have my 8 and 11 year old sons with me, so steakhouse or American cuisine.

    Rays in the City has good steaks downtown, Hooters is Hooters.....feel like most of the restaurants downtown are catered towards the convention/tourist groups. If you're willing to grab an uber, the recs will start flowing but it's not necessary for the 3 of y'all to eat well. There is a Landry's Seafood in the bottom of a hotel on Marietta. Stats, BBQ, etc are all right there too. There is also No Mas Cantina for Mexican walking distance south of the MBS if they'll do tacos.

    I'll always recommend Highland Tap for steak/prime rib. Not the best in the city, but a classic in the Highlands and one of my personal favorites for the overall experience. Rathbun's is one of the best steaks in town and in Old Fourth Ward about 5 minutes via uber east.

    Yeah I went last night. Are you into that stuff? It was pretty fun and pretty quick. Only like 90 min.

    I bought tickets front row in the lower level which was a mistake. You have a better view in the 2nd level up one set of stairs.

    It was relatively full between the bases

    I also like bars, food, and drinking. Excuse to go to a part of town I rarely go to and the GF has never been that way.

    Yeah to me it seems like doing something we rarely have an opportunity to see in Atlanta. So why the hell not?

    By the way Torched Hop’s food for a brewery is outrageously good. If it was on the beltline instead of New Realm they would be printing money.
