Atlanta Events: Happening 01/19 - 01/21
Happy Fri-Yay! The temps are rising and the snow is melting (is that you Spring?). It's the archetypal bipolar winter here in Georgia. It was 27 degrees and snowing this past Tuesday, and I'm sure we'll see plenty of skin on Sunday with a projected high of 60 degrees. We are now 60 days away from the vernal equinox and I CAN. NOT. WAIT!
Okay okay, back to reality. Maybe these five Atlanta events can inspire you to get out this weekend and enjoy the glimpse into Spring.
Kai Lin Art Gallery will host Convergence, which brings artists together for an exploration into abstraction and inspiration. In this exhibition, you can discover the abstract and austere beauty of works by Joe Camoosa, Jason Kofke, Ashley L. Schick, and Lucha Rodriguez. Tonight's opening is from 7-10P, but you can catch this exhibition through March 2, 2018. The gallery is open Wednesdays - Fridays from 12-6P, and Saturdays from 12-5P.
Attend a short film screening
Creative Director Lawrence Ellis will be showing his first screening of his short film series Fairytale Lies. Meet the man in front of and behind the lens as you engage with other creatives between sips of Four Roses Bourbon and TazaRay Sunflower Spirits. The free screening will feature performance art, as well as complimentary food + drinks from 5-9PM. Simply text 404-471-3767 to RSVP.
Become an enigma in the City of Love
Leave your normal self at home, and become someone else for the night. Grab a mask and be whisked away to a mysterious + romantic evening in Paris. Set to the titillating sounds of Orchestra Noir, get all the Fifty Shades of Grey feels as you walk the red carpet with your beaux and are engulfed into the City of Love. Toast tu amour with French champagne, wine, and hors d'oeuvres as classical opera, jazz, and R&B drown out sweet whispers. The first show sold out, so get your tickets for the 10:30PM show now to score some brownie points before V-day.
Walk like an Egyptian
Michael C Carlos Museum is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019 by giving the community 100 FREE museum admission days. To commemorate the centennial year, the museum will host special programs, events, and exhibitions for this important milestone. Open from 1-4PM, explore Egyptian, Greek, African, and Roman exhibitions in the southeast's largest collection of ancient art. Splurge on that audio guide ($2) to learn more about the museum in an hour than you ever would without it.
Cook in season with Grant Park Farmer's Market
Winter months don't mean that we can't still support our local farmer's markets, and Grant Park's has moved to Eventide Brewing to keep us warm. The brewery will be open for seating only, but you can still bring your furry friends along for the fun. This week they will have apples, endive, brussel sprouts, roots (carrot, turnip, radish, beet), greens (chard, arugula, kale, lettuce), and broccoli as the in season produce. Catch the seasonal cooking demo with Market Chef Angela Oyesiku, and reward your community effort with an after market beer. Eventide Brewing Tasting Room opens at 12:30PM for your tasting pleasure.
Thank you for reading. I hope you come back again next week!
