Master your weekend

My knowledge of golf is limited. I have played miniature golf, which I am no longer allowed to play because of a temper tantrum I threw once. I know more about the Tiger Woods' meltdown, when his wife went off on his cheating behind, than I do about the traditions of what some consider the world's greatest game.

Alla Salute!

Tired of fast food at lunch and the same old franchise restaurants at dinner? Well there's a new local spot to nosh! Milazzo's Ristorante in Clark's Grove is a lovely intimate space, full of delicious smells, lovely wines and a super helpful staff. The food is amazing. You're not going to find some pre-frozen meatballs and canned tomato sauce here. It's fresh, it's tasty and it's a nice step up and away from your typical fare in Covington. The space is small, but it isn't crowded; it's the perfect amount of ...

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 ...

No one will believe you did this!

Call now to make reservations for the coolest sounding evening ever! Forget bands and restaurants – how about star-gazing through the treetops at Panola Mountain? It sounds so amazing it should be fake, right? It's totally not though! The nocturnal climb includes florescent lichen and glowing night creepers, stargazing and other night climbing activities. You have to be at least 8-years-old, so no wee ones, but get your behinds outside and check this out Saturday night. You'll be jealous of the rest of us if you don't. And imagine the Facebook pictures you could post of you in ...

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.

Spend Easter with the dinosaurs!

Dinosaurs may technically be extinct, but Fernbank Museum makes it's own rules this weekend, with their annual Dinosaur Egg Hunt. And you can always visit the museum after you finish hunting for those coveted eggs. In it's fourth year, there are some tips for egg-hunters. The main one: get there on time - early if you can. It's a popular event and you have to pay or show your membership before you can line up, so don't be searching for a parking place while your kid misses out on the hunt. And after you're through, go ...

Ma'am, your baby looks like a gorilla...

As the weather gets warmer it's time to pack up those stylish winter boots and get outside. What better place to go with your family, friends or as a date (seriously, it's a great place for a date!) than the zoo! And, cue the collective awwww… They have baby animals! A new baby gorilla named Andi, two new baby golden lion tamarins, a baby orangutan named Pongo, two new lesser kudu's named Sherlock and Watson and a baby eastern bongo named Betty Jean. Now that you've finished Googling all the animals, buy those tickets and plan ...

Breaking Lent in style

More than 41 percent of Americans observe the Christian season of Lent every year. For the heathens reading this, that means they give something up for 40 days. But this weekend, aside from finally being a little warmer, is the end of Lent, and if you have to break a fast, why not do it in style? Keep reading to learn more!

What's better than bacon?

Everyone loves bacon. There's bacon soft drinks, bacon beer, bacon mints, perfume that makes you smell like pork - the list is endless. And you know why? Because bacon is delicious and everyone loves it. And here's a festival that celebrates the best of that little piggie. It's a fundraiser for Dad's Garage, which is a non-profit venue that's been around forever, and they have beer, bands and, of course, bacon! Go enjoy the weather since Spring has officially sprung, even if Georgia hasn't gotten the memo just yet. But make sure you get a ...

Laughter is the best medicine

A little bit rude, a tiny bit crude and a whole lot funny. Welcome to the annual Laughing Skull Festival! In its fourth year, this festival showcases some of the best up-and-coming talent around. It lasts five days, so you've missed a few already, but if you go this weekend you won't have to fake an illness to get out of work. The comedians perform in various venues in Atlanta - all of which will sell you a beer. And what goes better with laughing than booze? Going on a first date? Step outside the box. Spicing up date ...

Good for what's ale-ing you!

I shouldn't have to even write anything - just looking at this giant slice of deliciousness should be enough for you want to visit Cakes & Ale in Decatur. They have tasty food and lovely libations; and, seriously, look at that cake! Plus, it's a hip little venue in the heart of a hip little city. Park far and take a walk around while you're there. You'll need to move around some after eating here. If you gave up sweets for Lent, this is the place to take them back up.
