Tapas and tango

If you or your guests need a little practice getting down on the dance floor, check out Pura Vida, a warm and vibrant tapas and wine bar in Atlanta. Every other Thursday there's a chance to engage in some native South American culture as Argentinean tango dancers fill the room and dare the more brazen in the crowd to join them. Those who prefer sedentary entertainment can still enjoy themselves at this restaurant helmed by "Top Chef" contestant Hector Santiago. Known for his innovative cooking and surprising flavors, Santiago keeps his ingredients fresh, the house sangria flowing, and the atmosphere lively yet intimate enough for out-of-towners to bond over plates of sizzling tapas. Its famous Sunday brunch, which includes sweet corn pancakes and pineapple French toast, is also available to nurse any post-wedding blues your guests might be experiencing. For full menus and more information on events, visit Pura Vida's website.—Sarah Lee, Intern, Brides Atlanta
