Top Things to Do in Atlanta This Weekend and Week 7/9-7/15

Welcome back! If you were anticipating a slow post-4th of July week you’d be out of luck because damn this week is PACKED. We missed our deadline (sorry) to get our events uploaded in part because there are SO many events that our calendar was failing when we tried to upload them.

This weekend is especially packed! Friday we recommend you hit up Sweetwater and try their new G13 beer! Then mosey your way over to the Pancakes and Booze Art Show to satisfy your munchies. On Saturday get some friends and get physical at Atlanta Field Day, check out the new Atlanta Comic Con, or see the new Dad’s Garage show – Black Nerd! All such great and diverse choices. On Sunday when most people are being mellow, you don’t have to be! Watch some waiters duke it out in the Waiters Race in Buckhead, catch the new SEC SummerFest, or attend the classic Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival!
