Happy almost weekend! I can tell we’re getting out of the winter doldrums. The word “festival” is re-entering the lexicon, Snow Mountain is closing, Six Flags is opening and every day this weekend, there are tours, races and activities going on outside.
As always, there’s a pinch of music here, but if you’re really looking for info on live music, check out the Atlanta Music Scene blog.
And if you’ve got more suggestions for the weekend, please add ‘em to the free AccessAtlanta.com calendar, and share them in the comments! Have fun! — Jamie G.
