Look, you’re a sexy thang, but you still need to exercise.

Cost: Free

Leon's Full Service
It's not like our city has any love for the Patriots, so hit Leon's (whose owner is from Philly) for a game day viewing party usually reserved for staff until this year. They're keeping it industry discount-style on price, so $40 gets you unlimited food and drink, including gourmet cheesesteaks, wings, hot pretzels, beer, wine, and a special punch made with apple brandy, bourbon, dark rum, sherry, and citrus juices.
Cost: $40

Alpharetta
You probably don’t ride the Atlanta Streetcar very often, but this Mardi Gras-themed bar crawl will make you give it a shot since they employed 11 bars to give shots to you. Those drinkeries include STATS, Corner Tavern, Noni’s, Edgewood Speakeasy, and others. And you’ll get an all-day Streetcar ride pass, access to live New Orleans brass band music, and entirely too many beads.
Cost: $15 before January 6; $25 for day-of

Hampton + Hudson
Galentine’s Day brunch is all about showing your girls some love with family-style waffle boards where you can pick your own toppings (the first 40 ladies to order a board get a gift), Bellini, and chocolate pairing specials, and a photo booth to prove that men shall not be missed when y’all finally kill all of us.
Cost: However much you order

Monday Night Garage
Monday Night Prom is actually on a Friday, but it wouldn’t matter anyway because now you’re grown and can drink all the beer you want, legally. They’re serious about you wearing a prom outfit, and they’ll also have a special prom beer glass, food, and casino games for some reason.
Cost: $36.69

Sweet Auburn Barbecue
Normally Sweet Auburn Barbecue sells, well, its namesake.

For $45 you get all that, fortune cookies and oranges for dessert, and a traditional lion dance performance from the Chien Hong School of Kung Fu troupe.

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra knows you’re salty about not getting tickets to their Prince-themed show, so they’re giving you A New Hope. Literally. Music from the original Star Wars film will be played by our own big fancy city band. There’s a show for three straight nights, so you should get in if you buy now.
Cost: $59 on the low end

Buckhead
It’s Cupid’s Undie Run -- that wonderful event in which you show your body some love by running in the freezing cold, wearing your boxers, sarong, or whatever you cover yourself with in those parts these days. It starts at Big Sky, and proceeds will go to organizations that help fight the genetic disorder neurofibromatosis, which affects one in every 3,000 children. How many children will be affected by seeing you running in your draws as they drive by? Don’t worry about all that.
Cost: $35

The first Atlanta brewery that made it big is having a 21st birthday.
