Grab your glowsticks and head to IRIS
IRIS is one of Atlanta's most successful and longest-running electronic promoters/venues that offers a top-shelf EDM experience for those who prefer private cocktail servers to warehouse parties.
People watch at Majestic Diner
Majestic Diner is an Atlanta institution. The food — breakfast fare and sandwiches (try the club!) to burgers and blue-plate specials — is solid. But the 85-year-old eatery's ability to draw a diverse cross-section of ATLiens makes it perfect for some prime people watching. Apart from breakfast hours, daytime at Majestic is fairly tame. At night, the 24/7 diner turns into a kaleidoscope of culture, especially when the bars let out after 2 a.m. Extra credit: To ensure a night full of kooky characters, catch the cast of Lips Down on Dixie performing The Rocky Horror Picture Show next door at the Plaza Theatre every Friday at 11:55 p.m.
Concert-hop across Atlanta
To get a dose of Atlanta's music scene, show-hop your way through each neighborhood's top venues. Hit up Westside's Terminal West or Smith's Olde Bar in Ansley Park for an early gig, then head toward Poncey-Highland to get a glimpse of Drunken Unicorn's lineup. Next, make a pit stop at Star Bar (Thursday nights are free) on your way to East Atlanta Village. Around midnight, catch the headliner at the Earl and refuel on some after-hours grub. For the finale, walk over to 529 to hear the last band, and then give yourself a high five.
Take your chances at the Clermont Lounge
The Clermont Lounge is one of the city's oldest and most notorious places to wet your whistle. The dancers on the pole are mature and possess unique talents, so throw some dollar bills at 'em while you grab a PBR and soak up the Lynchian ambiance. No photos.
Watch the sun rise from the top of Stone Mountain
You probably saw Stone Mountain from the air as you arrived here for college. Or from I-285. Or, if you're from here, you at least once watched lasers beamed onto the rock face. But, you have likely never experienced the gigantic granite rock as the sun rises. The park opens at dawn and closes at dusk so grab a friend, wake up extra early, and start the 1-mile hike to the top. While other friends haven't even pressed the snooze button, you'll be catching a beautiful glimpse of the city skyline. On a clear morning you might be able to see up to 60 miles away.
Entirely unnecessary article; I would never be friends with a vegetarian.
