12. Pick from a gang of watering holes right on the main strip of Virginia-Highland (Highland Ave) and create your own excursion, from Atkins Park to Highland Tap, Dark Horse Tavern and T. Mac, and many more. Or just join a jaunt that’s already planned, such as the one where everybody dresses like a zombie on July 30.
13. You’ve got more than a couple options for beveraging near Inman Quarter, whether you’re below street level at just-opened Hampton & Hudson, curbside at Beetlecat, or getting your Spanish on, duh, at Barcelona.
14. East Atlanta Village is a great place to drink and scene-stalk, whether you want live music at The Earl, crafty concoctions from Argosy, or anything that pours at The Midway Pub, Flatiron Bar, Graveyard Tavern, Union EAV or others.
15. There’s even great drinking near Perimeter, at the top of I-285. The Pub, which is attached to Perimeter Mall, has fantastic happy hour specials on drinks and food. Sage Woodfire Tavern, located across the street, is a more sophisticated spot for the after-work set. The Brass Tap, a upscale-yet-relaxed sports bar which opened recently near Sage, offers live music on weekends and stocks over 300 craft beers, which they've made searchable on their website by your preference of style, origin and ABV.
