Quirky spots that are ATL favorites

i love this city! on any given night u can stumble into a spot that will blow ur mind with their creativity..let me give u a few examples:

Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium

Don't even think about visiting this spot if you have some religious is hilarious and u must be in the mood to hang loose, stare at some tongue-in-cheek artwork and get your ping pong on man!

Sack Lunch Company
This cute little food stand is totally hilarious and at the same time so comforting and yummy..they are located in the heart of Downtown Atlanta in a small green building located in the Food District on Broad Street. Here's the kicker..u can get a sandwich, chips, a juice box and gushers and "Mom" will put a cool note inside ur sack lunch with sayings like "Wash your hands" or "Mom loves you"..It's nice being a grown-up but who doesnt love mama? :-)and u can even buy a snoopy lunch pail or other novelty items.. It's like being back in middle school except the kid at the next lunchtable won't be kicking u in the keister and taking your!

The Stand's hand-crafted sausage recipe uses locally sourced chicken out of Gainesville, Georgia that is deboned by hand. These chicken sausage sandwiches are served on mini hawaiian rolls and remind u of a very yummy Krystal burger...and best of all they are open 24 hours on Friday and Saturday nights.
