Total Wine has a fantastic selection of brews.  You can grab a holder and put together your own 6-Pack specifically for the beer lover on your list.  For me, knowing nothing about beers, I will be putting together a few 6-Packs of beers with names I found funny or "spot-on".  But if you want to make sure the taste buds of your brew lovin' friends are respected, their staff is incredibly knowledgeable!  Total Wine is my go-to store - AND they have a huge walk in humidor and tons of great gift ideas!! 

Whole Foods has a pretty fair selection of wines and beers too! Here is a list of the stores which carry beer and wine. 

a lil random beer-ness:

Legoland: 10 Atlanta Landmarks for MiniLegoLand

A few weeks back I attended the Ground Breaking Ceremony of the new LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta which is scheduled to open in Phipps Plaza in April 2012. 

This will be the third LEGOLAND Discovery Center in the United States. Described as stepping into the biggest box of LEGO bricks in the world, the $15 million, 30,000-square-foot interactive attraction will feature a MINILAND exhibit which recreates landmark buildings in Atlanta out of LEGO bricks, hands-on play areas, a 4D Cinema, master classes from the LEGO Master Model Builder, LEGO rides, and special party rooms for birthdays and other celebrations. This highly interactive and educational 2-3 hour indoor experience is ideal for families with children. 

Local Atlantans were asked to vote on what Atlanta icons they wanted to see represented in MiniLand.  Here is what we asked for: 
Bank of America Building
Fox Theatre
Georgia Dome
Georgia Aquarium
High Museum of Art
King and Queen Towers
Stone Mountain
The Varsity
Turner Field
World of Coca-Cola

We are super excited about the opening!  My boys are all older now, the youngest one being 11, and we still play with legos.  We have them set up in the computer room on a huge table and build awesomeness with them whenever the mood strikes us.  Matt (13 yo) even took a few of them and made rings for all the schools of Hogwarts - painted them and everything - they are preetttty cool!

    People leave tips on what to order - and what not to order.  Many eateries will offer a special discount or freebie for check-ins.  And . . . if you are not familiar with yelp or urbanspoon - traveling is a good time to get to know them.  I use them both when choosing places to eat in cities I am not familiar with, as well as the metro Atlanta area.  Though these sites might not save you money directly, they will save you time, energy, and save you from spending money on a bad meal!
