I am helping out in planning for a friend's bachelor party. We are a fairly large group (12) from Toronto, all young professionals staying from Friday night to Monday. I'm not going to bother trying to get reservations or worry about lunches/brunches because who knows when we will be up and ready to go so Im mostly focused on dinners.
Here is what I am thinking:
FRIDAY NIGHT L5P
DINNER - Either try our luck at Fox Bros or make a reso for dinner at Wrecking Bar
DRINKS - Porter Beer Bar then head on to Old Fourth Ward for Joystick Game Bar and other bars
ALTERNATIVE FOR FRIDAY
Our place is relatively close to east atlanta so making a reso at the Shed At Glenwood or maybe going to Holy Taco then doing Octopus Bar etc. could be an option, but I think the L5P route might be more fun.
This is where I am a bit stumped. I think the move Saturday is Decatur but the big dining option for Decatur seems to be Cakes & Ales and Im not sure it can accomodate 12 people or if its the right food and vibe for 12 guys.
Of course the other big draw of Decatur are the cocktails at Paper Plane and Kimball House, so should we just have dinner at one of those places or is there somewhere else even better?
Dinner booked at Empire State South
Post Dinner Drinks- ??
Being from Toronto this recent thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/968733 was super helpful. We would be mostly looking for southern food, BBQ,fried chicken, burgers and Mexican. Was looking at maybe going to General Muir for their Fried Chicken on Friday but it seems really out of the way to anything else and with 12 of us using Uber or taxis want to avoid jumping around all over the city.
Any guidance you guys can give would be great, thanks so much. Am especially looking forward to any foodiebuddha recommendations, his advice in the other thread seemed right on the mark for my own tastes.
