Have from 7:30-11:30am tomorrow morning. Between CNN center, world of Coca Cola and heritage site, which would be most recommended?

Also are there any kosher breakfast / brunch options near the downtown area?

I'll be heading to Atlanta for work this week (Wed & Thurs). I'm staying at the Le Meridian in Dunwoody. I'd like to be able to daven Mincha with a Minyan on Thursday which is a fast day. My flight back home leaves ATL at 6:15 which means that if I find a minyan close to sundown (around 5:35), I'll be pretty tight. Any suggestions on finding something either very close to the airport, or getting one around noon?

Yeshiva Ohr Yisrael in Toco hills should have a 2:15 minyan.  Give them a call to confirm though.

Is Formaggio Mio open to the public yet? Anywhere else to get pizza? Cafe Bello didn't last long.

Not that they had pizza anyway. Their falafel was great but otherwise very limited menu. Didnít know they already closed.

They are basically the same, some like one more some like the other.  Grille has more sitting room. Palace is cramped.

 Stone mountain (Laser light show).  Sweet water park.
Centenial Park.  Depends what you're looking for and ages of the kiss.

As for hotels, look for anything in Buckhead or Perimeter area, both are about 10 min from either Beth Tefillah, Ariel or Beth Jacob/Young Israel.
