No weekend plans? No worries! We’ve got you covered with the best happenings around Atlanta.
Friday, August 5
First Friday- Meet the Artist:
When/Where: 6-8pm, West Elm @ Ponce City Market, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Atlanta 30308
Help Ponce City Market kick off the first event of their First Friday of the Month series and get to know artists in our community. Tomorrow you have the chance to meet artists Courtney Khail, Emily Mann, Brynn Casey, and Michelle Armas at West Elm and celebrate (and purchase) their latest pieces while snacking on treats from The Cotton Candy Cart. If you want to make an evening out of it, arrive early or stay late and eat at PCM’s Food Hall. We recommend W.H. Stiles Fish Camp for dinner and Honeysuckle Gelato for dessert.
Where Are the Women in Sneaker Design?:
When/Where: 7-8pm @ Rich Theater and 8:30-10pm @ Sifly Piazza
Price: Free for Members, $5 for Students, and $10 for Nonmembers
If you haven’t been to The Rise of Sneaker Culture exhibit at the High Museum, you need to hurry there before August 14. If you want a highlighted glimpse and a personal account of Sneaker Culture, however, do not miss this event! New York designer Sophia Chang is hosting a panel discussion on her take of the industry, the female influences within it, and her most recent collaborations with Reebok and Puma. Head to Sifly Piazza right after to enjoy some drinks, late night music, and dancing.
Saturday, August 6
When/Where: 7pm, Infinite Energy Center, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway Duluth 30097
Price: Tickets start at $107
Yes, you read that right. Tickets do start at the not so cheap price of $107. Trust us when we say that 21 Pilots is an absolutely phenomenal concert (I may be biased because I saw them at Lollapalooza in 2015) and worth every penny and then some. If you already have plans for Saturday night or need to listen to their album a few more times before dropping 100 bucks, do not fear- they are a headliner for Music Midtown in just a few weeks. You’ve probably heard “Stressed Out” about 15689 times on the radio, but be sure to check out their first album, Vessel- it’s gold.
When/Where: 11pm-2am, Marcel, 1170 Howell Mill Rd NW, Atlanta 30318
Price: Depends on the Meal
Perhaps one of the most hidden gems of Atlanta (unless you love Ford Fry and live in the city), you will have an extra cup of coffee at 5pm every Saturday night once you experience a Late Night at Marcel. What’s so special about their Late Night? You can try a limited dinner menu for $10 per dish instead of having to wait for a super special occasion to go to such a upscale restaurant just to have an appetizer or cocktail. Save that big homemade meal for Sunday evening and save room for their King Crab Fondue and Bananas Foster Sundae.
Sunday, August 7
BeltLine Bicycle Tour:
When/Where: 1:45-5pm, WeCycle,1124 Oak St SW, Atlanta 30310
Price: Registration is Free (donations are encouraged)
Get some exercise in and learn all about the BeltLine- past, present, and future on this guided bicycle tour of the Westside route. Don’t even try the “I don’t own a bike” excuse because you can simply show up 30 minutes early and secure a rental from WeCycle. Make sure to bring water and wear a helmet along with comfortable clothing (it’s a 9 mile route on a summer afternoon in Hotlanta). With stops at Gordon White Park, Rose Circle Park, Washington Park, and Adair Park, you will leave with a wealth of insight about the vision for this project and its effects on this city.
