It is freezing outside. If you are going to brave the elements you need a good reason, like making some famous new friends. Here’s a roundup of celebrity encounter opportunities, for those who have not shot their Christmas card photo yet:
Today, you can meet a couple of the Falcons. Chauncey Davis, a defensive end, will meet and greet at the Buckhead Verizon Store (3275 Peachtree Road NE,) from 11 to 1 p.m. Kicker Matt Bryant, shown in action at the right, will be at the Buford Drive Verizon Store, up in Mill Creek, (3260 Buford Drive, Buford,) from 6 to 8 p.m. Fans at each location have a chance to win tix to the Dec. 27 game.
At 6 p.m. tonight, comedian Steve Harvey signs his latest book, “Straight Talk,” at the Stonecrest Borders.
On Wednesday, meet Braves pitcher Tim Hudson at Phipps Plaza. He’ll be there from noon to 1 p.m. in the Monarch Court area, and if you make a donation to the Make-a-Wish Foundation he will sign an autograph for you.
