Alliance Theatre brings Disney's "Mulan" to life this weekend. Here, Mulan (Leslie Bellair) learns to act like a boy from the dragon, Mushu (Bernard Jones.) Photo by Greg Mooney.

I’m purposely not checking the weather for this weekend, but rather choosing to believe that they will all be as nice as last weekend. At very least, there’s a lot of fun stuff to do, all the dancing, drinking and merriment I’ve come to expect, regardless of whether the sun shines.

If you’re looking for pop music, check out more comprehensive info at the AJC’s  Atlanta Music Scene blog.

And as always, share your suggestions for weekend events in the comments! — Jamie G.
