  • Mass Collective (364 Nelson St. NW) will feature an Intro to Welding Class specializing in MIG Safety and Basics courtesy of instructor Bria Sativa Aguayo. The 4 hour course will cover fundamentals of prepping and joining stock metal with welding. You’ll get experience with angle grinders, welders, and safety tool setup. The course runs $115 but is well worth the expense for those interested in welding.
  • Mark Warren will be at Posman Books in Ponce City Market (675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE) to sign copies of his new book Adobe Moon from 1-3pm. Adobe Moon is the first in a trilogy exploring the life and history of Wyatt Earp, written with expansive research on Mark’s part.

Bars & Brews:

Clubs:

  • Live! At the Battery (825 Battery Ave SE) will hold their 2nd annual Sound Off Silent Disco! You’ll be set with an LED headset flipping through 3 styles of music for a unique dance experience. Doors open at 8pm, and at 9pm the bar will open up. You can also get food from their new menu until midnight. Get the headset alone for $10 or with 5 drink tickets for $40 here. Having been to a few of these myself, they’re hit or miss and difficult to get right but I have faith that Live! will pull it off.
  • The Basement (1245 Glenwood Ave SE) will have their Keep On Movin’ Dance Party from 10pm onward. Electric Western Records’ Jacob Jones and Reno Bo will be playing Motown, soul, and ‘50s & ‘60s Rock & Roll! Get your tickets here for $7 in advance, $10 night-of.
