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 are craft beers and cocktails, outdoor games like horseshoes, a covered patio with darts, pool tables inside, and a stage for live music. Get the burger or the cast iron mac and cheese (just add carnitas). Importantly: on your birthday, you get a free bottle of cheap champagne.
