Welcome to Your Weekend: Iceholes to Zombies
Placeholder Image

Most of us have embraced the world of social networking in some way. We use it to keep up with our family and friends. We use it as a platform to share everything from the dinner we made to our philosophical thoughts on parenting. We post adorable photos of our children and pets and selfies of our new hairdo. #LoveMyPerm

But on the weekends, do you find yourself tweeting things like:

Reaching level 200 of Candy Crush is quite a feat, but with all of the cool happenings in our area this weekend, maybe it's time to get out in the community and spice up your hashtags!

If you're looking for an action packed evening, check out our own Atlanta Hawks, the team with the best record in the NBA, as they take on Steph Curry and the second-best Golden State Warriors in Philips Arena. #GoHawks!

In need of some inspiration? Join an audience of over 10,000 Christian music fans for Winter Jam 2015! Over a dozen artists and speakers will lead an incredible night of music and worship at the Georgia Dome. #GettinMyPraiseOn

For those of us with a competitive spirit, I give you the Icehole Classic in Covington, a Masters Series Cornhole Tournament sponsored by The American Cornhole Organization. If you are looking for a little more exercise, put on your running shoes on for a good cause at the 5th Annual Rockdale Career Academy "Focused on the Future 5K" in Conyers. Next, lace up your skates for the last weekend of ice skating in Olde Town. Show off your axels, lifts and quadruple jumps. (Just kidding. You will skate in circles, but it will be fun!) #BladesOfGlory

At the end of this fun-filled weekend, curl up on the couch and watch Rick Grimes, Darryl Dixon and the gang attempt to survive the zombie apocalypse when The Walking Dead returns Sunday evening! #ZombiesAreMyBFF
