Bachelorette Party in Atlanta- HELP!

wahwahweewee | Aug 31, 2009 01:07 PM

Hi all,

I am trying to plan a bachelorette party for a friend of mine in Atlanta. We are planning on just a dinner and a lot of drinking (no strip clubs or anything like that). We are all in-town girls (though I haven't lived in Atlanta in a long time) and I would like to stay ITP. There will be about 10 of us and we are all between the ages of 19-26 (though the 19 year old won't be drinking, just doing dinner).

About dinner: The bride is very low key. She is also a pretty picky eater and drinker. She wouldn't be into fine dining or wine of any kind (in fact she only drinks Bud Light). I would like somewhere for dinner that isn't too expensive (maybe $20-$25 before drinks) that would be relatively low key and 'easy' food (eg Mexican, American, old-style Italian, etc.) but where we wouldn't look weird if we were dressed up. (By dressed up I mean in dresses and heels, not like vails covered in male genetalia or anything like that). The best idea I have so far is Pura Vida? Would that work possibly? Any other ideas?

About drinks: I am looking for somewhere where there would be several bars together. Not a big fan of the highlands and definitely not Buckhead (is there anything there anymore?). She likes low-key places (see: the aforementioned Bud Light), no dancing, but still fun. Also, it will be on Wednesday so somewhere that may be kinda lively during the week so we don't stick out like sore thumbs.

Is this a lost cause?

Any help or advice you may have would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for reading this far!!
