R. THOMAS' DELUXE GRILL, a favorite Sunday brunch destination, is one of the city's most eccentric restaurants. It's open 21 hours a day, closing from 6-9 a.m. for cleanup. Its dining room is a climate-controlled patio surrounded by flowers tended by R. Thomas himself. Its menu is attractive to carnivores and vegetarians alike. (In fact, you can buy some of its vegan dishes at organic markets around town.) Fresh juices and teas are another big draw. "1812 Peachtree St. 404-881-0246. www.rthomasdeluxegrill.com." less...

The 24 Hour Plays
Atlanta may be The City Too Busy to Hate, but it's got a long way to go before it rivals The City That Never Sleeps. The number of 24/7 entertainment options are pretty scarce, but there are a few pockets of all-night fun. Since 1998, the adrenaline has been rushing around the clock at THE 24 HOUR PLAYS,more...
Atlanta may be The City Too Busy to Hate, but it's got a long way to go before it rivals The City That Never Sleeps. The number of 24/7 entertainment options are pretty scarce, but there are a few pockets of all-night fun. Since 1998, the adrenaline has been rushing around the clock at THE 24 HOUR PLAYS, Plain Sight Productions' occasional theatrical stunt in which up to 100 Atlantans gather to write, rehearse and stage eight short plays within a 24-hour period. Participants aren't required to stay on site the entire running time, but many do. And even when the results aren't timeless, the event generates a uniquely theatrical thrill.

Best 24-hour Entertainment BOA Award Winner

Ponce de Leon Avenue
What do the Krispy Kreme doughnuts, prostitutes giving blowjobs and mayoral candidate Shirley Franklin have in common? They all can be found on a certain stretch of Ponce de Leon Avenue in Midtown.

What do the Krispy Kreme doughnuts, prostitutes giving blowjobs and mayoral candidate Shirley Franklin have in common? They all can be found on a certain stretch of Ponce de Leon Avenue in Midtown. While much of Atlanta is being gentrified into submission, Ponce retains its, um, indigenous charm. If you're in the mood for cheap and not-so-wholesome fun, stake out a corner between City Hall East and Peachtree Street, and you're sure to see colorful street characters, the odd projectile vomiting incident, hookers and - if you're lucky and hanging out near The Eagle - some mustached, hairy-assed 40ish leather dudes walking around in chaps. Who could ask for more? less...

845 Peachtree St. 404-873-1986 http://www.backstreetatlanta.com Need proof that Midtown is the new Buckhead? Check out Backstreet at 3:30 on a Sunday morning. Gone are the armies of shirtless circuit boys and love-filled raver kids who once ruled the dance floor, replaced mostly by a sea of straight party girls and their uneasy-looking boyfriends. Sure, Fridays are still tres gay, and ever-bitchy drag divas like Raven remain favorites in the queer community. But weekends at this longstanding landmark of nightlife are a true melting pot for Atlanta's party set - earlier closing times and nearby condo developments be damned! less...
