Austin: Foodie Kids Culinary Center

Barbara Beery started her cooking school and culinary retail shop business 25 years ago with a degree in elementary education and a passion for cooking. Since that time she has taught thousands of kids to cook and written a best-selling children's cookbook too. Her birthday parties (1.5 hours, starting at age 3) have kids cooking four dishes based on trendy themes like Minions, Dinosaurs, Frozen, Star Wars and more. "They do pizzas, lemonade, frost and decorate cupcakes, and make fruit wands," explains Beery. The birthday child gets an apron signed by all the kids in the party as a gift to take home.

Atlanta: The Painted Pin

At this upscale boutique bar, bowling, and entertainment venue in the heart of Buckhead's Miami Circle, kids can bowl, and play Skee-Ball, Ping-Pong and more. When they’re ready for a break, they can feast on a seasonal menu created by chef Thomas Collins: soy-and-ginger-glazed edamame and hickory-smoked pork ribs, along with a slew of tacos and wood-fired pizzas. Parents can relax over craft cocktails by mixologist and bar manager Trip Sandifer of Atlanta's The Spence and Restaurant Eugene. We know it's about the kids, but Mom and Dad need a cocktail.
