At Unique Events of Atlanta's gatherings, adults convene for evenings of interactive theatrics, gaming, and group activities. The staff's creative scribes conjure up a theme to serve as the plot of interactive murder-mystery dinners, where participants discover clues over dinner and drinks, evoking their inner gumshoes to identify villains and summon orphaned saxophone riffs left over from the '80s. Other events include casino nights, where card lovers can compare poker faces, and old-fashion game nights, where friendly competition ensues over Monopoly boards, Uno decks, Twister mats, and Xbox Dance Central screens. The event extraordinaires also host marriage proposals, anniversaries, and reunions with repaired lawnmowers.:m]]
The Atlanta Fair is one of the largest inner-city fairs in the Southeastern United States. It offers a multitude of rides, food, games, and entertainment. Food and games are cash only, so bring some dollars if you're planning on winning a stuffed snake or snacking on funnel cake. Spend some time meandering around the family-friendly grounds in between the coasting, spinning, and whirling of your unlimited rides. Fair-going thrill seekers must abide by the rules of the rides; meaning "you must be this tall to ride," "keep your hands inside the vehicle," and "no affixing flux capacitors to the Tilt-a-Whirl in hopes of achieving time travel."
