Four things to do around Atlanta on Thursday, Jan. 14:

1. FEATURED
Get your 70's on at Avalon on Ice's Disco Skate from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. Costumes are encouraged. [If Alpharetta's too far for you, there are plenty of other ice skating rinks still open.]

Half-priced cocktails are all yours during happy hour at Poor Calvin's located between Downtown and Midtown. [This Atlanta treasure serves up $2 tacos and $5 skinny margaritas on Thursday nights.]

3. FOOD
Chicken and dumplings are a perfect winter dish. Be sure to try Ration & Dram's version made with Darby Farms chicken, Swiss Dairy milk and biscuit dumplings. [This isn't the only place that can serve up a mean chicken and dumplings. Find out where to get your fill.]

4. FAMILY-FRIENDLY
Bring your pajama-clad kids to Story Time at Little Shop of Stories this evening in Decatur at 7 p.m., complete with milk and cookies. [Food families can hit up these kid-friendly restaurants that will hit the spot.]
