This Weekend in the City

This weekend has some pretty interesting things coming into the city this weekend (far more interesting than Raul Mondesi – or my friend bragging about hanging out with some Hawks who knew Nelly and Ludacris How convenient he couldn’t remember the Hawks players names…).

Friday night, of course there is still Martinis & IMAX at Fernbank. If you’ve never been to this, why not? There’s a wine bar, dinner can be served, and bands performing. Plus you get a great, interesting movie. Where else do you get all that for $10? Well, I guess that watching Moonshine Still at Smith’s Olde Bar is one such place. $10 in advance you get to go to what I think is one of Atlanta’s finer music venues. It’s very intimate so when a band that has great energy (as Moonshine Still does) is playing, it’s a great place to connect and feel the music. For other music, CJ’s Landing is hosting FishTank (starts at 10:45). Also in Buckhead, there’s a Tsunami Victim Benefit at Landmark Diner Side Door Lounge. Speaking of Landmark, Landmark Theater (near me!) is hosting a week-long run of Dr. Strangelove starting today in honor of the film’s 40th anniversary.

Saturday night there is probably only one thing to do – The Falcons are playing The Rams in the Playoffs at 8 pm. Get some place where you can watch it and cheer our boys on. If you are looking for another suggestion for some real partying let me suggest Little Five Points and East Atlanta. Seriously, there are a lot of great places in both areas and you get to see Atlanta’s hipster crowd – What could be more fun?! I also suggest heading to one of the many Taco Macs around the city if you like beer and/or buffalo wings. They’ve recently upgraded their “Passport Club.” As rewards, you earn money in the club, can get a 20 oz glass for the price of a 16 oz, a Passport club jacket, and many other things.

I wish I had some family oriented stuff to list this week, but ’tis not to be so. This is a long weekend though (it’s MLK day on Monday) and their are a lot of educational based things going on – with the King Center, AHC, and other places – so get out, enjoy the first cold weekend in some time, and have fun in the city.
