If a romantic after-dinner stroll is more important than fanciness, downtown Macon is full of great spots, such as Bearfoot Tavern, Parish on Cherry, Piedmont Brewery and Kitchen, Sang’s, Ladda Thai, Ocmulgee Brewpub and Vintage, the restaurant at the Marriott. Bottom line: There’s no excuse not to do something special for this special-est of days. Make the call now so you don’t end up plan-less like last year.
