The Flying Machine
This place is one-of-a-kind and a sure conversation starter. Located along the edge of the Gwinnett County Airport on Briscoe Blvd., pilots can taxi right up to the Flying Machine's patio to order, and those who prefer to drive can join in the unique hospitality and airplane enthusiast culture for a quick bite as well. The Flying Machine serves American–style lunches and dinners like country-fried steak and gravy or smothered chicken tenders, sandwiches and wraps, and fresh baked, home-style cakes for dessert. Live entertainment is provided several times a week.
The LONA Gallery
Opened in April 2010, the LONA Gallery is situated in the middle of historic downtown Lawrenceville. Featured are a variety of paintings, sculptures, and other artworks by local artists. In addition to local work, the Gallery also displays pieces from other artists around the world. Follow it up with a glass of wine and dessert at Local Republic, also on the square.
Dave & Buster's
This grown-up arcade is located along Sugarloaf Parkway in Lawrenceville, inside Discover Mills Mall. Here customers will find a variety of games to enjoy, from basketball game-hoops to skee ball. Also on site is a full bowling alley with 10 lanes, in addition to virtual bowling. Dave & Buster's has a full restaurant, where customers will find traditional American fare such as buffalo wings, nachos and chicken fingers.
Picnic in the Park
You've got a lot of creative license here. Load up at Kroger for some bread, cheese, wine and cupcakes. It's the perfect weather right now too. See our list of parks in Lawrenceville here.
The Shoppes at Webb Gin
There are quite a few date-worthy restaurants at this shopping center, including the brand new Georgia Pine, a farm-to-table type of restaurant. It replaced Gary's Bistro.
