The wife and I are flying out to San Diego early Sunday morning so we are going to stay the night in ATL Saturday to cut down on drive time (We live in Toccoa, about 2 hours away from the airport). So what's going on Saturday night? Any good shows/concerts/big events? I was planning on watching the BasketVols at a sports bar (I know... STATS) but we would like to do something fun after that. I'd even give up the game for something good if it conflicted with the game time.
Also, some suggestions for restaurants. Something unique to ATL. Don't really care about location of events or restaurants. Anywhere safe and in the greater ATL area is fine.
Don't go to STATS. They screwed us over. I'll never go there again.
A new Hudson Grill just opened near CNN Center. Much better than STATS.

I lived in SD for 1.5 years and my wife is from there. Awesome place.
Let me know if you need any recommendations.
Duly noted. Thanks Rockytop. No suggestions otherwise from you? You were one of the few posters I had in mind when I started this thread.

Thanks NoVa. I'm actually going on a business trip and she's just tagging along. Not gonna have a whole lot of time to do much but I do think we're going to the zoo. I did get invited to a vendor party at Petco Park. I think they're going to have the batting cages set up for us and everything! Should be fun.
We're staying in the Gas Lamp because I've got a conference going on all week at the convention center. Did this 2 years ago. You're right, San Diego is an awesome place. Might not come back...
Try Six Feet Under on Memorial Drive. It is across the street rom Oakland Cemetery (hence the name). It's primarily a seafood place and they have the best fried catfish in town. If you enter the cemetery from the entrance across the street and take the first right you will see the grave of Bobby Jones and all of the golf balls that golfers leave in memorial. There is also a second Six Feet Under location but I haven't been there.
Another good, local place is Fox Brothers BBQ on DeKalb Avenue near Little Five Points. The pork and brisket is outstanding but the wings - smoked and then buffaloed are great.
I'll be there at the airport on Sunday also heading to LAX for the week. I'm going to watch the Super Bowl on the plane.
Hey man, great bar down there is the Vortex. 2 locations...one has a comedy club in the back that has some pretty good comedians. It's the best burger I've ever eaten, and it was featured on Man vs Food. But I always get the Double bypass burger. 2 grilled cheese buns, 6 slices of bacon, a half pound patty, 2 fried eggs, and 6 slices of cheese. BEST BURGER EVER, and of course don't forget the house beer which is the Laughing Skull. But if you're just looking for somewhere "cool" to go the Sweetwater Brewery is down there too. They do tours on the weekends and its pretty cool to see the whole place.
Awesome RTTT! I like the sound of all of that. Safe travels my friend.
If you are staying downtown then there are a number of places. I know it doesn't sound unique but there is a Mexican restaurant downtown called No Mas that is awesome. If you like Italian there is La Grotta on Peachtree out towards Buckhead. French/Continental on North Highlands would be Babette's. La Grotta and Babett's are pricey but well worth the money with Babette's being my favorite of all. For steak and such The Capital Grill or Morton's. Hope this helps.
Mary Mac's Tea Room! There's an older lady that gives free back rubs.
I had to actually do some work, so I apologize for cutting my first response short. I see you have already gotten some good suggestions. Six Feet Under is a great choice -- I go there fairly often. The Oakland Cemetery across Memorial Drive, as noted, actually attracts tourists because of its age, its unique layout and the famous people buried there, like Bobby Jones, Margaret Mitchell, and a slew of Georgia governors and Atlanta mayors.
My favorite Mexican restaurant is a hole in the wall off the beaten path but it gets "Best of Atlanta" awards nearly every year. It's called Nueva Laredo Cantina, and it's on Chattahoochee Ave., off Howell Mill.
A lot of debate on steak in Atlanta, but Bone's in Buckhead makes most lists. Warning: it's pricy.
If you like seafood, there's Ray's in the City on Peachtree and its sister (brother?), Ray's on the River north of the city on the Chattahoochee.
There's a Marriot in the Gas Lamp that has a bar on the roof - or close to the roof. Not far from Petco. Stayed there for CoSida back in the day - think it was 2007. Great area, great time.
Your team. All the time.
