Check out this pic I took at the recent Ri Ra and Oskar Blues beer dinner. Delish!
Here's an extensive list of places for Dad to grub!

What’s that saying? I think it’s “A way to a man’s heart through his stomach.” Well whatever it is, I say there’s some validity there, so make a dad smile by bringing him to one of the seemingly countless Atlanta eat spots that do their best to pamper him in culinary bliss listed below. Make reservations today!
