Lions and tigers and monkeys?

Just like Dorothy chanted, Noah's Ark has your traditional lions, tigers and bears. They also have goats and monkeys and parrots – really all manner of animals to see. And as you can tell, I love me some animals. But ready to hear why this place is even better? It's a home from injured, abused or orphaned animals. I just heard that collective awwww! Now it's technically free, but since they operate on donations, it would be nice if you gave them something. You can also schedule a behind-the-scenes visit. It costs money, but it's worth it ...

Imagine Brains!

Imagine It! Children's Museum in Atlanta is an amazing place. You almost don't need to have a kid with you to enjoy it, but if you hang around solo some of the parents might get a little concerned. Along with all the super fun regular stuff they have on a daily basis, this weekend they have Exploring Brains. Learn about your brain, your favorite animal's brain, where your senses are controlled – you might even get to touch a real brain! That's reason enough to go. Plus there are tons of other things to do at Imagine ...

Beer snobs unite!

Eat, drink and be merry. It's easy to do at Porter Beer Bar. Not only is the food amazing, they have a million different beers (not literally, more like 300, but still), they are in Little Five Points, which means amazing people watching, and they have a whole bunch of beer, so that means even your beer snob friend/boyfriend/husband/self can find something to enjoy. Just because it's in Little Five doesn't mean they only serve PBR. And they have some of the best bar food ever. Belgian fries or salt and vinegar popcorn anyone ...

All God’s critters big and small

As a city-bred person, I always thought that life in the country would be idyllic: scenic, slow paced, clean air, healthy living, strong sense of community and more. Well, much of this is true; however, what I didn't know anything about was critters! We have critters here that are like an unending plague. We can control them - but rarely, if ever, get rid of them.

Covington's Country Crooner

Covington, if you thought our limelight was dying down, think again. Not only is Covington known as The Hollywood of the South, and as the filming location of many popular television shows and movies, but we are gaining traction in the music department as well. Local country musician, Gannon Adams, has been on a roll with positive attention. Country music fans will fall in love with his upbeat mix of music. Especially his big hit "Game Face."

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

Ever feel like you're in a rut? Like you do the same thing at the same place all the time? I used to feel that way. Then I decided I was going to stop, and I did. Don't get me wrong, I still go to Applebee's for its drinks and Amici for its amazing Caesar salad, but that doesn't mean I don't spice things up every once in a while. And you should too! It's surprisingly easy to do.
