Travel Thread: What should I do in Atlanta?

Ive found in time the search on this forum was shit but if you google whatever keywords with the word hipinion, you get what you're looking for most of the time. I mean even when they keywords aren't exact.

My son loved the aquarium. Just go at 10. If you buy Tix online, you get the early bird discount. Go tomorrow when some people may still be working. While you're down there, you can go to world of coke too and walk around centennial. You can show your mom the fountains. They play in time to music.

Uh, I met you when I bought weed from michael, and then I saw you again at the earl once when my friend's band opened for My Morning Jacket. Thanks for remembering, dick.


Ah fuck sorry, my brain is basically oatmeal at this point

what does everybody think about Revery, ATL's very own VR bar?

Like suburbs or the south side of the city? I know about the south side, not really the suburbs

well, was lookin for recommendations for both but i think i may settle with the burbs as it would be closer to work, which is in clayton cty. i drove over there yesterday and checked out some areas and i was thinking maybe stockbridge? i'm pretty easy to please w/r/t things to do as i'm largely a shut-in. okay thanks goodbye.

Ok! I've heard of Stockbridge. Grammatron is the suburbs queen, so he may know.

I taught at Stockbridge High School for a few years. My brother lives out there too. It's ok. Pretty standard Atlanta suburb. It's been many years since I spent any time there, so I'm not sure what it's like now.

My girlfriend surprised me by taking me here last night for my birthday with a few of my friends and we had a blast.

It’s a real cool concept but doesn’t seem to be very well run. Don’t know if that’s just them ironing out the kinks of being a new place or what but if it ends up catching on and getting popular they’re gonna have to make some changes to handle big crowds.

They kind of just set you loose in the bay with the VR system and no explanation so if you aren’t a gamer or have used a VR setup before you’re gonna waste a good 10-15 minutes at least of your paid time just figuring out how to work it. There’s a couple dudes who float around and help you out if you ask but besides that you’re on your own. All the bays are single player setups but there are a couple games that are fun to have the whole group kind of help out along with the person wearing the gear.

The bar sucks though and the drinks were weak as hell but not terribly overpriced.

I don’t know if any of you have been to Battle and Brew up in Sandy Springs but that seems to be a better execution of the gaming bar concept although I hear they just changed management and I haven’t been in over a year.

Pretty fun though!

first of all, they stole my idea
second of all, i was going to call it the gentleman loser like the bar in neuromancer
thirdly, i will definitely be going there

i haven't been to battle and brew cuz sandy springs lol but joystick has pretty good drinks so if they started doing vr they'd probably obliterate this new one

Yeah I really need to go back to Battle and Brew soon but like Theta said, Sandy Springs is a fuckin hike. Although I’m planning on buying a house around October and that area is looking tempting as fuck financially.
