Welcome to your Weekend: Being Uniquely You

Welcome to your Weekend: Being Uniquely You

There’s nothing more refreshing than a little self-expression. Whether it’s crafting a few lines of poetry, singing a song you would never tell your friends you like into your hairbrush microphone, or painting tiny smiling cats on your finger nails, it’s always a delight to do something that is uniquely you. Sometimes simply looking at what other people have made can inspire you, so don’t rule out browsing other people’s creations as a way to motivate yourself to get out there and get expressing.

Welcome to Your Weekend: An Awesome Odd Coupling

The Sometimes nothing hits the spot like an odd pairing. Like a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Fusion can be incredibly refreshing. Mixing things up can result in flavors, colors, musical styles, etc. that strangely and unexpectedly complement each other. Fusing two different genres together in the entertainment world can result in unforgettable evenings on the town.

Welcome To Your weekend: Loving Local Laughs

Welcome To Your weekend: Loving Local Laughs

Much like the cast of Mary Poppins, I love to laugh. I may not sing songs about it while floating around the ceiling, but I still feel very strongly about the need for laughter. One of the best ways to ensure a solid few hours of merriment is a glorious night of stand-up comedy. For bonus laughs, get tickets to a stand up show in a real comedy club. You know, the kind with the two drink minimum. Between the tasty drinks and the contagious giggles of those around you, there will be plenty of chuckles for all.

Welcome to Your Weekend: Ice Cream, You Scream...

Welcome to Your Weekend: Ice Cream, You Scream...

If you don’t spend a heinous amount of time on the internet (like some people…cough…not me, of course…double cough) then you might not know that it’s National Ice Cream month. Here’s the scoop on National Ice Cream month: In 1984 Ronald Reagan said “Hey, Americans, you love ice cream more than just about anything else. Let’s give it its very own month and have some festivals and stuff.” Alright, I’m paraphrasing. I’m sure that sounded much more eloquent and presidential when he said it. Anyways, July was chosen for its position ...

Irreverent fun in ‘Nunsense’

Irreverent fun in ‘Nunsense’

The New Depot Players' latest incarnation, "Nunsense," is a musical and comedic epiphany. Dan Goggin's well-loved and awarded classic has been updated with pleasing modern tweaks and a twerk. Yes, nuns and twerking were just used in the same sentence. The Little Sisters of Hoboken's escapades are divinely irreverent, but blessed with heart.

Welcome to Your Weekend: Backyard Broadway!

Abandon your couch for the night. I promise you won't hurt its feelings. Spice up your summer evenings with a little community theater. It's a great way to catch a fantastic show without paying an exorbitant amount for tickets and fighting the one way streets and traffic jams downtown. Yes, local productions can shake up your routine without breaking the bank (or your sanity if you suffer from Atlanta-specific road rage).

Welcome to Your Weekend: A summer getaway in your backyard

Welcome to Your Weekend: A summer getaway in your backyard

If a beach getaway or a mountain retreat is out of your reach, then there’s no reason to sulk inside. I’m a huge proponent of micro-vacations that fit snugly into your regular schedule. What is a micro-vacation? I’m glad you asked. I’m also glad we are telepathically linked and I can anticipate your questions like that. A micro-vacation, first cousin of the increasingly popular “staycation,” is essentially a day of relaxing and exploring a nearby city. Experience the food, culture, nightlife, etc. of another community without having to give up the comfort of sleeping in your ...
