Kerwin Posted June 6, 2019 Share Posted June 6, 2019 (edited) Hey all, First off, I'll apologize for making a new thread for this since I feel like I see one every year, but can't seem to find any of the old ones now that I need one. I tried some simple searches to look for old threads that would probably have all the information I need, but couldn't quite find one with everything. The subject is that I've finally convinced my wife to take the long trip from Seattle to Atlanta for a Falcons game (I've only ever seen the Falcons live when they're playing against the Seahawks, so what better game to visit than when the Seahawks come to town on Oct. 27). It's going to be a short trip, so I want to get the most out of it, and I'm hoping my local Falcons brothers can help me out like you've done for others in my situation before. I'll start the list with some of the food recommendations I found in another thread that looked interesting, but here's all the stuff I'm hoping to get some help on for my trip: Hotels - any tips on where to stay? Doesn't need to be right near the stadium if there's a better part of town that might be closer to good food/drink Highland Inn Embassy Suites at Centennial Olympic Park AirBnB - look in Virginia Highlands, Inman Park, Kirkwood Food - what's the top local gem I make sure I visit? Some options I have so far: Homegrown - for breakfast/brunch The Varsity (locals say don't go) Fox Bros BBQ Antico pizza Twin Smoker Optimist Rock's Chicken & Fries Drinks - my wife and I love our crafty, aged, specialty beers. What's the best brewery and/or beer pub in the city? The Porter Beer Bar Wrecking Bar Brewpub Brickstore Pub Max Lager's Twain's Sweetwater Brewery Hopstix Tickets/Stadium attractions - maybe the most important item! What's the best place to get a seat? Is it worth the club level experience where I can walk down to the field for a bit? I plan to get to the stadium early so that I can do my exploring before the game. Are there any must-see attractions in the stadium I should focus on, or would I be plenty happy just wandering around and taking it all in? Cost effective - just get the cheapest seats and watch the game from the endzone rail Club seats - worth the cost to be able to walk down to the field level I'll try to keep this thread updated to pull in any recommendations I get so that maybe this one can help someone else out for their trip in the future. Thanks in advance for anyone with contributions! Edited June 7, 2019 by Kerwin mar31985, NCCooley, RING OF HONOR and 5 others 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
