Brewery Tour and Dinner
With over a dozen local breweries in the Atlanta area, you are sure to find one with drinks and a menu to suit your taste. Take a tour of the brewery to see how the local craft beers are made, taste test the ones that look best to you, then enjoy a great meal with your new found favorite drink! Some of the locations even offer other fun events to add to your date, such as pup parties, painting classes, beer-yoga, and of course, local musicians. IG: @MondayNight @AtlantaBrewingCo
Outdoor dates can be a refreshing upgrade to the classic dinner date. Take your date for a sweet picnic at a local park followed by a drive-in movie. Looking for something more unique? Tour the city on land, water, or air. Bike tours are cheap (or free!) and easy, and you can make use of the while a canoe trip down the Chattahoochee gives a different view and sense of adventure. Add even more thrill and take a hot air balloon ride to see the city from above! IG: @LimeBike Get $3 in Ride Credits
