Where/When: Studioplex Lofts Courtyard, 659 Auburn Ave., Atlanta, through Friday, August 12
Why get involved: So here’s the deal: if you want to get in on The Birdhouse Social that’s being held next weekend on Saturday, August 20, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., you still have time to get in on it this week, as it’s not too late – that is, until Friday, August 12. Architecture for Humanity Atlanta is holding its 3rd annual “social” and they’re looking for designs to be submitted, so work hard the rest of this week and get in on this kind of community event.
Where/When: Zoo Atlanta, 800 Cherokee Ave., Atlanta, Thursday, August 11, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Why go: Spend a night “Wild on the Rocks” at one of the city’s most popular date nights by enjoying after-hours exhibit viewing while you mix and mingle. Reservations include two complimentary beverages, light hors d’oeuvres, special exhibit viewing and theater seating. Program is designed for adults; content may not be suitable for children.

Where/When: Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave., NE, Atlanta, Saturday, August 13, 8:30 p.m.
Why go: For more than 15 years, Big Mike Geier’s Elvis Royale show is over-the-top Vegas-style and he is the life of the party! He fronts the 13-piece orchestra, covering Elvis songs, as showgirls dance and even the audience gets in on the action during the grand finale.
