The one and only Midtown Bowl, which you should be more than familiar with since it’s been here for five decades, lets the balls roll until 3am every weekend starting Thursday night, and has a solid snack game, including subs, breaded wings, and a weekly changing eggroll special. They also take their beer seriously, with rotating highlights from Creature Comforts, New Realm, Dogfish Head, and a few ciders and meads here and there.
Hit a strip club
It’s been part of the city’s culture way longer than the Olympics came to town. You’ve heard of the main players: Magic City, Pink Pony, Oasis, Onyx, Cheetah, Follies, Pin Ups, and Blue Flame Lounge, among many. Give back to the local economy and support an Atlanta strip club tonight, with that same energy you’d have for a casino in Las Vegas.
Eat at a beloved diner
Atlanta has a rule when it comes to eating: We’ll eat whatever we want at any time. That’s why we have diners like Majestic, Landmark, and others that have survived the times and continued to thrive against the digestive tracts of time (heaven knows we should eat earlier). Also, you know this is where Waffle House originated, right? Not to mention, The Dwarf House, which evolved into what is now the third-biggest fast-food restaurant chain in America behind McDonald’s and Starbucks, is still serving Chick-Fil-A-quality food all day and night in Hapeville, except Sunday.
