I see the same complaints over and over in the blog comments: we don’t know where to go to meet people, to have fun with visitors or spend an afternoon alone.
It’s time we help each other out.
So here’s My Scene, a new Inside Access feature to help us get a diverse and personal look at what’s fun around Atlanta. Every other Friday, I’ll feature a local reader’s opinions about the best of what metro Atlanta has to offer. Give these ideas a try and let us know in the comments how it goes!
And if you or someone you know has something to say about where to have fun in Atlanta, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org — your scene might be the one we feature next.
And now, our first Scene subject.

Most memorably fun time out in Atlanta: Drunken singing at Su Karaoke!
Atlanta’s entertainment scene is…: always changing! It seems like there are new, fun places opening up all the time.
Place to eat or drink: El Myr. They make my favorite guacamole in town.
Place to hang out with friends: My back yard.
Place to go on a date: Across the Street, a Mexican restaurant in Old Fourth Ward. There’s a patio right on the path, and their food is amazing!
Place to take visitors: Trader Vic’s downtown. I love the hokey hotel bar feel and over-the-top cocktails.
Place to people watch: Anywhere in Little Five Points.
Place to go for a day trip: Hiking at Kennesaw Mountain.
