Best Local Events — Kait’s 8 Edition

Preventing FOMO* one list at a time

(*Fear of Missing Out)

Let’s talk events. Your list to the best events going down in our great city! Now, when choosing these events I tried to keep three key groups in mind: people without kids, people with kids, and people with kids that just don’t care (you’re welcome).

1. Adventure hunt Atlanta
-May 13th 9am-4pm
-Atlanta, GA
Think of it as an adult scavenger hunt because the prizes are no joke. Explore Atlanta to complete challenges that will earn you clues to find buried treasure.

2. The Big Lebowski Free Screening
-May 16th 7-10pm
-City winery Atlanta
-Free, RSVP required
Watch the dude and his friends with your dude or friends on a 15ft screen. Laughing and an RSVP are required.

3. Slingin Wings Festival
– May 20th 12-8pm
-Brookhaven Park
Ain’t no thang but a chicken wing! This is a wing taste off and your tickets will include voting rights and wings samples. A portion of the proceeds go to Releash Atlanta.

4. Shoot the Hooch 2017: #Thebigone
-June 4th 11am-3pm
-Cochran Shoals Nature Trail
Good old fashioned summer fun. Grab a tube and some friends and join everyone else in the kick off to floating down the Hooch.

5. Atlanta Moon Ride
-June 9th 7-11:59pm
-Piedmont Park area
This is the funkiest 6 mile bike ride you will ever participate in. It a smooth night ride with tons of color, lights, fun, and usually people get a little boozed up beforehand. Even if you don’t ride it is still worth watching.

7. Atlanta Field Day
-July 15th 12-5pm

Think sweat bands, grass stains, and getting hit in the face with a dodge ball.

8. Atlanta Grilled Cheese Festival
October 7th 12-6pm
-O4W Skatepark
Anything regarding cheese doesn’t ever need a description convincing you to participate.
