Play any kind of video game at this awesome bar! We love their Tri-Force Nachos (we usually order them as Tachos- tater tots instead of tortilla chips). Their specialty game-themed drinks are also delicious. We love going during happy hour.

Eastern-European butcher shop in downtown Austell. Their smoked meats are absolutely delicious and you can also find some Eastern European treats in there! It's not a restaurant at all, but it's fun to get some cheese and salami to bring home or just as a little snack for the day.

For a unique coffee shop experience, check out Gilly! (One of the coffee shops that Holly's workplace sells coffee to.) Their love for creating delicious drinks is their craft. From seasonal coffee drinks to crafted seasonal elixirs- non-alcoholic. It's a drive across town, but if you're visiting Stone Mountain Park or Arabia Mountain, you can stop by here on your way out/back. Fun Fact: Gilly is a Black-owned business that owns the old Governor's Mansion, built by slaves. Talk about a comeback story!

This is our absolute favorite view of the ATL skyline (you can also see the Buckhead Skyline and on a clear day, Stone Mountain). It's an amazing spot to go early and watch the sunrise. You can just drive up to the highest spot and enjoy the beautiful view. (It is a cemetery so please be respectful.)
