The Little Darlin’ is right off William Cannon and South Congress, and it’s a great place to unwind or spend a chill Sunday afternoon on the picnic tables in the huge patio out back. There’s craft beers and cocktails, outdoor games like horseshoes, a covered patio with darts, pool tables inside, and a stage for live music. The food can be hit or miss, so just stick with the basics, like the burger or the cast iron mac and cheese (just add carnitas). Importantly: on your birthday, you get a free bottle of cheap champagne.
