ATL early April - any interest in TA member Meet & Greet?

Hello all. I will be in Atlanta April 1st to 3rd for a conference. Wondered if other TA members (travelers or locals) might be interested in a meet and greet Wed (Apr 1st) or Thu (Apr 2nd) night? Would be nice if a local could recommend a decent place in Midtown as it has been 3+ years since my last visit to ATL.

I will be out of town, but I when I went to London, they had a TA meet up. Apparently, they do them quite often. I came a little late, but all the people I met were very nice and I think this could be an interesting thing for Atlanta.

We had a mini meet and greet a few months ago when catherp and I had dinner with TA Dan. It was fun, but hard to get a bunch of busy people together. The first week of April is shot for me.

Thanks to everyone who has responded to date. Yes, mid-week meet and greets are notoriously difficult to pull off. But they do work, I even met up with TA readers during a trip to Barcelona!

I had a great time at our December dinner that J mentioned. I had a great time at a TA meet up in NY, too.

I can't make those dates, but I think you'll have a great time. I defer to J's suggestions for good restaurants in Midtown.

My favorite new restaurant right now is BLT Steak at the W downtown. In midtown, my top pick would be Ecco or Holeman & Finch. If you have a car, check out Shaun's, Rathbun's, Two Urban Licks. I also hear great things about 4th & Swift, but haven't had time to check it out yet. For drinks in midtown, you can't go wrong with Tap.
