Just south of Atlanta, the Georgia Renaissance Festival will be open
from Friday to Monday for the holiday weekend. Journey back in time
while you enjoy food (including the famous turkey legs!) and drink from
a variety of vendors. Plenty of entertainment from the family-friendly
to the risqué. Bring your walking shoes though; the site is
huge! Tickets are half-off (around $10 for adults) the whole weekend,
so this is the perfect time to visit.
Want to act like an animal? Zoo Atlanta's annual Brew at the Zoo is
happening this Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets at the door
are $48, but if you're a member and you order early you can get them
for $38. They'll have unlimited sampling of a variety of beers and
wines, and you'll get to enjoy them while viewing the zoo's 1,500
animals. Free rides on the train and carousel too! Just don't get drunk
as a skunk!
On Sunday the 27th, you can slide down to Park Tavern and enjoy some
amazing blues music, beer, and barbecue from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. They'll
have four different bands playing during the day, and it's all under a
large air conditioned tent. The price of admission is $20.
Maybe you want something a little more upbeat than the Blues? Head down
to Piedmont Park for the 35th Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival. There will
be two stages with nine different bands from Saturday to Monday, and
admission is free. Food and drink vendors will be on site as well, and

local choirs performing on stage. Canned goods go to support Hosea Feed
the Hungry and Homeless.
These are the big events, but there are plenty of local restaurants who
will be having their own special deals to celebrate the weekend. At the
very least, take a look through Atlanta-restaurants.org and find
