Every year, we celebrate Valentine's Day in our own special way at ANITM---by getting together at a laid-back, unromantic venue that has absolutely nothing to do with hearts and flowers, $125 dinners for two, or dressing in your finest red and black ensemble. Whether you're single or a happy couple, you'll have a great time hanging out with friends and meeting new people in a fun, pressure-free environment where nobody will ask you when you're going to meet a nice guy/girl, or when you're finally going to tie the knot.
Altobeli's Italian Restaurant & Piano Bar is hands-down, my favourite restaurant in Atlanta. As an Italian girl from the Northeast, I'm picky about my Italian places...I want something that reminds me of home, family, friends, and happy times shared over fattening, authentic food. Altobeli's, a family-run establishment that's filled this need since before many of us were born, has all this, plus an extensive wine list, a piano bar, and good martinis that won't break the bank.
The down side: it is a little bit of a drive, but there's private parking, and it's an experience that's well worth it. This year, skip the Hallmark cards, overpriced roses, and speed-dating, and have a great night hanging out with friends and appreciating the small things in life that make life so awesome!:) Singles, couples, old friends, new friends, everyone is welcome. Space is limited, however, so only sign up if you know you can make it!
