Five events to make up for those five days of work you had this week. We’re sorry about that. Let’s make it up to you below!
Date: Friday, August 3, 2018 (8:30PM – 10:00PM)
Locations: Begins at Promenade II Building
Were you ever jealous of Harry Potter and his messenger owl? It might’ve been just me, but that’s okay. Celebrate the night with your own lantern owl during the Parliament of Owls lantern parade! Create your own custom feathered friend with dazzling lights and cuteness. The parade begins at 8:30PM at the Promenade II Building and will make its way through some notable Atlanta areas including Colony Square and Sifly Plaza at the High Museum! Remember if you’re parading to wear all black! Check out their site for more information!
Date: Sunday, August 5, 2018 (12:30PM – 5:00PM)
Location: Park Tavern (10th Street Location)
Oh my goodness, my favorite time of the year has arrived yet again–All-Day Rosé!! I mean, it’s not like I don’t drink it every day anyway, but to celebrate it? That’s monumental. Head to Park Tavern to enjoy an (almost) unlimited amount of pinkness with a few brunchy favorites. A VIP ticket gets you inside of the mahogany indoor bar. Just sayin’. Living the life with a glass of Rosé in hand. Find more information and grab your tickets here! Drink responsibly! Take MARTA cause it’s smartah’!
Date: Saturday, August 4, 2018 (11:00AM – 4:00PM)
Location: Historic Old Fourth Ward Park
When I was a Cub Scout, one of my favorite things to participate in was the soapbox derby. You’d have to construct a car out of this slab of wood and would put a penny or a quarter underneath it for some reason? I don’t know why I remember that, but it was of some importance to the race. Well, turn my memory into real life fun at the Cool Dads Rock 6th Annual Soapbox Derby. Teams will bring in their life-sized soapbox racers to Historic Old Fourth Ward Park, and see which “cool” dad wins. It’s a free event with music, entertainment and food too! Check out their site to enter the race or to get more info!
Dates: Now – August, 31, 2018 (8:00PM – 9:30PM)
Location: Laughing Skull Lounge (Peachtree Street)
Ten of Atlanta’s best comedians showcase their best ten minutes of material at The Laughing Skull! It’s a fun showcase of seasoned and upcoming talents brave enough to make you laugh. There might even be some celebrity appearances, so I’ve heard. Check out the info here!
Dates: Saturday, August 4, 2018 – Saturday, September 8, 2018
