Jimbo's rocks the river

If you think Jimbo's is just about burgers and chicken fingers you would be wrong. They have those, of course, along with a plethora of other tasty food and drinks, but they also have live music with local talent (like Gannon Adams later this month!), open mic nights and karaoke. And if you show them some love, they might add trivia to the mix soon! Not only can you support a local business and local talent, but you can get your entertainment close to home.

It ain’t easy bein’ sleazy

Grab your friends or your boo and head out to Blind Willie's Friday for music by Delta Moon, a little Cajun food and some drinks. Use it as a chance to get a little dressed up if you want, or you can always dress down. A joint that has the motto "It ain't easy bein' sleazy" isn't going to mind if you wear jeans. It's like a little bit of the Bayou in the middle of Atlanta. The cover charge Friday is $12 and the food and drinks are super reasonable and super tasty.

Local libations

Take a drive to Conyers and have a beer and some bar food at the Celtic Tavern this weekend. It's a small space, but it's not the size that matters. At least not here. There's a decently stocked bar, some adorable patio seating - which is great this time of year, and the small setting comes off more as intimate and not cramped. Intimate in a good way, not in a creepy I-want-to-wear-your-feet sort of way. It's close to other bars too, so if you're getting your drink on, you can bar hop in Olde Town.
