Every night owl loves a pub crawl. Especially on a guys’ night, a guiltless pub crawl presents endless potential. For example, a first pub stop might require a few pints a la Entourage and cosmopolitan cocktails for the local Sex and the City troupe. The next stop could involve Meet the Fockers or About Last Night. One can only presume. And, as the stops roll merrily along, The Hangover or Project X become relevant. So where should guys go on the creep in Atlanta? Call a taxi and try this itinerary of stops in the North Highlands neighborhood;
