the weekend has cometh

Keane is playing in a sold-out show at the Roxy tonight. If you were lucky enough to get tickets, I’m really really jealous. If you want to give them away and release the burden that they are upon you, just let me know and I will be glad to take them from you at no charge. Really, I will.

Also, you could go see Morgan Fairchild as seductress Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate at the Fox. You could also go to Martinis/Imax at Fernbank tonight if you really wanted to. But let’s be honest – there’s nothing better going on in the city tonight than the ATLart[05] city-wide gallery openings. Jessica gave the best sum-up of it:

the open-house night of ATL[art]05, when many of the local galleries throw their doors open until late into the night, put up cash bars, and serve crackers and grapes. I went last year, on a whim, and had a great time seeing the work of artists I wasn’t familiar with before. I went alone, but as you can imagine it also works as a great date or group night.

One suggestion: carpool, because parking on Bennett Street (and East Paces Ferry too, I’m guessing) will be, to say the least, limited.

Saturday has some different options. is having its Last Saturday Social event at Six in Buckhead. Also, if you’re into it (and who isn’t?) The Country Outlaws (a Hank and Waylon tribute band) are playing at the Peachtree Tavern. Finally, and this is particularly awesome, the Georgia Force opens their season in their new home of Philips Arena against the New Orleans VooDoo. Arena Football really is a lot of fun to watch and, like most non-major league sports, the fans at the game are in for a real treat.

Let me offer a suggestion on pre-going out coffeeshopping. If you’re near Midtown or Virginia-Highland, then I recommend JavaVino. Wonderful atmosphere (free wifi, of course) and a great selection of wines and coffees make this place a great pre-night stopover. If you get Christie as your server, then tell her that I sent you – she’s a good friend of mine.
