Final weekend for ‘Beat the Heat’ at Zoo Atlanta

I can’t help but smile and coo when I see photos of the new baby giraffe at Zoo Atlanta. She is not on exhibit full-time — perhaps she’s getting those long legs under her — but you could have an occasional sighting. Whether it’s the giraffes or other animals attracting your attention, remember that this Saturday and Sunday (July 31 and Aug. 1) are the final days of the zoo’s Beat the Heat promotion. Arrive before 10:30 a.m. on Saturday or Sunday and get $5 off your ticket. For a family of four, that’s $20 off.

50% off ‘Cats, The Musical’

“Cats, The Musical” is coming to the Fox Theatre Aug. 4-8. It’s a longtime favorite of families worldwide.They’ll see Mr. Mistofelees, Grizabella the Glamour Cat, Rum Tum Tugger, Macavity and Shimbleshanks the Railway Cat. Now, say that five times quickly! If you want to go to this Theatre of the Stars production, keep in mind that tickets are 50 percent off on Aug. 4 and 5 when you buy them through Ticketmaster at Publix grocery stores. The deal is not valid at the Fox box office.

Yellow Jacket Fan Day

Georgia Tech’s football and volleyball teams will sign autographs during the Yellow Jacket Fan Day on Saturday, Aug. 7, at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Festivities begin at 3 p.m. on Callaway Plaza with games and activities. Fans can enter the stadium beginning at 4 p.m., where they will be met by players and coaches.

I think the half off Braves ticket deal is a scam. I’ve tried twice to get half off on Tuesdays at the ballpark, only to be told that they are “sold out” (more than an hour before game time). Then the cheapest they have is General Admission at $9 each. They probably only have 100 seats designated for that half off promotion…
