4 things to do in Atlanta today: New Year's plans, $12 burger and beer and more

Four things to do around Atlanta on Monday, Dec. 28:

Now's the time to make your plans for New Year's Eve. Dance, eat or golf the night away… you're imagination is the limit. [Ring in New Year's with the whole family at these kid-friendly Atlanta celebrations.]

Grab a seat at Oak Steakhouse's bar in Alpharetta and enjoy 8 ounce CAB burgers and fries with your choice of bourbon or draft beer for $12. [You can also head to Bellwoods Social House where you can buy one full-price appetizer and get another half-price.]

If you live in Roswell or Alpharetta, you have great options for local dining; no chain restaurants needed. [If Christmas did you in with all-American cuisine, then hit up these delicious Italian spots around town.]

Stretch your legs and expand your mind at Zoo Atlanta. It's the perfect distraction from holiday leftovers and lingering company. [Museums are also a great option for kids on holiday break offering a chance to learn while having fun.]
