K9s and Hogs

Ride motorcycles, meet police dogs and stay to listen to a live band. If this sounds like your idea of a good time, then have I got the perfect event for you! We Ride to Provide will have their fifth annual K9 memorial motorcycle ride Saturday. If you ride, you can sign up to take the nearly 60-mile ride through some gorgeous country roads, or just come to watch the memorial service that will honor the 22 Georgia Police dogs that died in 2012, and see some current K9 officers. Afterwards, stay for a live band at Jimbo's Grill ...

The wolf was robbed

I am a huge fan of the Atlanta Center for Puppetry Arts because I am like a child and I get excited by small things. And if I'm this excited, you know your kids will be to see a new twist on an old classic. Think you know the story of the Three Little Pigs? Think again, people! Hear the story from A. Wolf, who'll break it down and tell his side of the story: he just wanted to borrow a cup of sugar and he wasn't blowing down houses, he had a cold, and those pessimistic ...

Dates with friends

I've always been a guy's girl. Even as a little kid I hung out with the boys, and my body bears the scars of a million skinned knees, cat scratches across the face (FYI: cat's DO NOT like swimming pools) and busted lips and noses. I'm not still friends with Catfish (yes, the real nickname of the kid who lived behind us), but I have developed friendships with other dudes and (GASP!) chicks over the years. But unlike back in the day when friendships could be maintained without any work at all, grown-up friendships need nurturing ...

Your heart will go on

Are you a closet "Titanic" freak? Have you been obsessed since Leo and Kate graced the silver screen with their oh-so-romantic love story (until we saw what a mean girl she was and let him drown, rather than scoot over on the board)? Well, you won't hear Celine sing during this program, but you can see a little bit of pretty spectacular history at the Titanic Exhibit. Over 200 artifacts recovered from the wreck site, untold stories from passengers and crew, historically accurate room recreations and the most recent 3D video from the wreck site. It's a little ...

Quality Time

Chances are someone you know is graduating from high school this weekend. It's a bittersweet time for everyone, from parents to kids – well, maybe not everyone. Teachers are probably pretty stoked to be getting rid of some of your precious angel babies. But I digress. And with graduation comes the end of school for kids from kindergarten through college, but what to do with the little buggers when they aren't in school for the better part of the day?

Baseball on a budget

Do you love baseball but hate driving into Atlanta? Or do you shudder at the thought of paying so much money to go see the Braves? Then try baseball on a budget and start small with the Gwinnett Braves! They might be a minor league team, but the stadium and the players are nothing to scoff at, and you still get hot dogs and beer, just for less money and a shorter wait in line. It's the perfect place to take your kid for their first game, that way if they hate it, you're not out an obscene ...

Booze and baboons

I'm super sad I won't be able to partake in what promises to be an epic event, so I need you guys to go so that I may live through you! It's time once again for Zoo Atlanta's annual Brew at the Zoo, where the grownups can kick the kids out, have unlimited samples of beer and wine and check out the more than 1,500 animals that call Zoo Atlanta home. Not only do you get to drink and make silly faces at the monkeys, there will also be a variety of bands and music ...

Good green fun

Grab a blanket and the family and head over to Ashton Hills Golf Club for Screen on the Green next Friday night. Snuggle up under the stars and watch "Parental Guidance," and get there early so you can enjoy family-style meals being served picnic style from the Village Grille. It's the sort of thing that kicks your summer off right, being with family, watching a movie that will (hopefully) make you laugh, and enjoying life. You can pick your meals up faster if you make a reservation, so make sure to call. Dinner is from 6-8 p.m., and ...

One Tank Trips

The kids are almost done with school, and you know what that means. It's time for vacations! But vacations take time and usually lots of money since you always have to go into those awful souvenir shops at the beach and take a picture standing in front of the giant shark mouth.

East Atlanta style

All the beer you want to drink, live bands, East Atlanta people watching and awesome weather? That's what you've got to look forward to if you get tickets to the 10th annual East Atlanta Beer Festival this weekend. Taste beers from more than 100 different companies, eat some tasty food, watch three bands, listen to some DJs and just chillax in the sun. It's really a great way to spend the day. And you don't actually HAVE to drink. Pay to watch the bands and the drunk people who will be hanging out underneath the ...

50 Shades of funny

There's no disputing that the book "50 Shades of Grey" took the world by storm, just as there should be no argument, from those who actually read it, that the book was atrocious. But rather than punish ourselves for reading it, why not take back our power and realize that the only real way to win, is to mock the book and its characters! If you're filled with self-loathing (or not), head over to The Buckhead Theatre this weekend and see "Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody" before it heads out of town. Certainly for adults only, the show ...

The best form of entertainment

The best form of entertainment has always been reading – at least for me. You can be anyone, go anywhere, and learn anything – all from a book. And if you're looking to update or increase your library then The Montessori School of Covington is the place to go today and Friday. Open from 3-8 p.m. Thursday and 3-6 p.m. Friday, the school will have books for elementary, middle and high school-age on sale through their Scholastic Book Fair. Kick start your summer reading and celebrate National Children's Book Week in one fell swoop, and get ready to ...

Taking over Peachtree

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have miles of Atlanta streets to wander on your bike or on foot without worrying about being plowed down by a MARTA bus? Well here's your chance to find out! For four hours on Sunday 2.7 miles of Peachtree Street will be closed to cars and open to YOU! You can ride your bike, walk, skateboard – you can travel in any way that does not involve a gas engine. I have this image of a bunch of people running around like they've lost their mind with the ...
