Fest of Ale and Gift Shop Sale
If you’ve been to the Atlanta Botanical Garden, you’ve undoubtedly stopped in the gift shop, where unique gifts often crafted by locals are on display. On Oct. 1 and Oct. 15, you can meet several of those artists in the Garden Gift Shop, and receive a 10 percent discount on merchandise as well. You don’t have to have a garden ticket to enter the museum, but you might one because every Thursday in October, from 5-10 p.m., the Fest of Ale takes place. The event features live music, speciality beers and Scarecrows in the Garden.
Discounted Hawks, Thrashers season-opener tickets
The Atlanta Falcons are just getting started and are off to a 2-0 start. Still, it’s never too early to start thinking about the Hawks and Thrashers, who get their seasons underway next month. It’s hard to catch your breath with all of the sporting activities, but slow down and take in these deep discounts for the Hawks and Thrashers first two games.
Both offers for select games are for purchases made this week only, using promo code ‘gtsui’:
Purchase lower level tickets for $30 and upper level tickets for $15. Lower level tickets normally start at $50.
