Fun and Games

Well, I’ve been out and about this week in the Big Peach working so, I’m ready for something fun and interesting for this weekend.

Here’s a few figs on my leaf, I mean, things on my list.

The Georgia Shakespeare Festival has A Streetcar Named Desire starting tonight. If only the Marlon Brando of 1951 was starring but, I’m sure this weekend’s cast will be great.

The Atlanta Pride celebration is going on this weekend, as well, with a parade on Sunday. According to the Mayor’s office, the Atlanta Pride Celebration brings in over $20 million in revenue to the city. (source: With about 300,000 people, one would think so.

Now, if you want to ride out east a few miles to Athens (go dawgs), you can take in Athfest – boy, do they need a new name for that one – it’s all about music. Pylon will headline tonight, followed by, The Whigs on Sat. and Shawn Mullins on Sun.

OR – if you don’t have any money like me, you could just ride MARTA around in circles – go to the airport and pretend you are headed to Australia, jump back on MARTA while thinking, “man, Australia was wonderful!”.

    The last suggestion sounds like the most interesting to me :)

    Elf Power, Five-Eight, Squat. Marta might be cheap, but there have been mutliple years when I have sat a table outside an Athens bar and still was able to hear Athfest without the wristband cost. (which was targeted like the deathstar on my bar tab).

    Yeah, Athens bars are pretty good. The town’s small enough where you can hear the music just about anywhere.
