Mr. DeludingMyself is turning 30 in September, and isn't entirely pleased with the idea. I know I can't stop him from being upset about the big 3-0, but I want to come up with something to make the day itself awesome.

We're very close as a couple, and very introverted - INTP with a healthy splash of social anxiety. Getting involved with each other so young has been awesome for our marriage (strange but true), but probably detrimental to the development of an actual social life, or real, sustained friendships. Lately, this has been bothering him, but not enough to actually act on it.
I can't fix our social scene in a month, but I do want to do something great for his birthday. We like going out and being around people (great restaurants, bars, concerts, museums, events) even if it's just the two of us. So, to Atlanta and non-local MeFites alike: what can I plan for his birthday that will fill the need for uninhibited (ok, less inhibited), semi-social drunken celebration?
Alcohol should be involved. Good beer is crucial (but fwiw, we frequent the Brick Store a lot already). I've considered bar-hopping across the city, and nixed strip clubs (the idea makes him uncomfortable). But thoughts and suggestions of all sorts are welcome!
