Every year a bunch of college buddies go on an extended weekend trip to various destinations (35-40 year olds, no wives, girlfriends or children allowed). We had planned on New Orleans this year...well thats out. So we're considering Atlanta (we done Vegas, Chicago, San Fran, Montreal, and Miami in the past). I don't know much about Atlanta except for the downtown area. I'm basically trying to research where the 'happening' areas are, and any hotel recommendations in those areas. Though siteseeing would be on the agenda, its mostly about hanging out (bars, restaurants, etc...) and male bonding, in a signature setting of the destination (if there is such an area in Atlanta).
