This is what we call a win-win: Drop off your kid at Writer’s Block bookshop for one of its free book clubs and workshops, which range in topic from poetry to horror fiction to playwriting to Dungeons & Dragons role-playing. While the young ones are having their fun, you stroll across the street to Atomic Liquors, the city’s oldest freestanding bar, to learn some history yourself. On your syllabus: 20 microbrews on tap and a variety of specialty cocktails. We don’t remember learning being this fun, for kids and adults alike. The Writer’s Block, 1020 Fremont St., Suite 100, 702-550-6399, TheWritersBlock.org; Atomic Liquors, 917 Fremont St., AtomicLasVegas.com.
