Hawks-Thrashers ticket giveaway with flood donation
I spotted this on Atlanta on the Cheap: The Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Thrashers are chipping in to help Austell’s Clarkdale Elementary School in its flood recovery efforts. Bring new school supplies with a minimum value of $10 to the Thrashers game on Saturday and get a voucher good for two complimentary tickets to the Oct. 22 game against the Washington Capitals or the Oct. 24 game against the San Jose Sharks. Drop-off locations will be at the Centennial Olympic Park Drive, CNN, Marta and First Horizon Club entrances to Philips Arena. The drive will run from the time doors open through the end of the first period.
The Hawks school supply drive is Oct. 7. In exchange for your donation, you’ll receive two vouchers for the Oct. 28 game against Indiana or the Oct. 30 game versus Washington. The giveaway runs from when the doors open through the first quarter. The drop-off locations are the same for both teams.
Phoenix Gives Free Concert at Criminal Records
It’s tough getting through hump day. If you have Phoenix rocking in a live concert, you really can’t complain, though. The band will give a free lunch concert starting at noon on Wednesday at Criminal Records, 1154-A Euclid Ave. There will also be free pizza. Citysearch and Pop Death Squad are sponsoring the in-store performance. If you didn’t get tickets to the full concert at the Variety, take a long lunch break, have a slice and enjoy the music.
Reminder: Free Night of Theater
Even more shows and venues have been added to the list of local participants in the Free Night of Theater starting Oct. 15. Tickets can be secured online starting at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1. More than 75,000 tickets in 120 cities nationally will be given away by the Theatre Communication Group. Among the local shows are Dinosaurs at the Center for Puppetry Arts, A Life In The Theatre at the Alliance Theatre, Julius Ceasar at Georgia Shakespeare and many others.
Reminder: Free burger and MARTA pass
If you’re passing through MARTA’s Five Points Wednesday, don’t forget to pick up your free MARTA one-way Breeze ticket and a coupon for a free McDonald’s Angus Third Pounder burger, while supplies last. The giveaway is from 4 p.m.-6 p.m.
No more Zoo Atlanta tickets
Darn, you might have been too late. Those half-off Zoo Atlanta tickets through Halfoffdepot.com are sold out. Check the site regularly for deals throughout the city on a wide variety of things.
