Get Out: Weekend Planner

Events and happenings around the Patch this weekend.

 

FRI – Sept. 14:

  • Hosted in conjunction with the East Atlanta Strut, and presented by Village Garage & Custom and Grease Monkey. This event will showcase "the best and baddest rides in Atlanta." Show off your ride (all styles of cars, motorcycles and bicycles) to other vehicle enthusiasts or join in the fun as a spectator while enjoying beer and live bands.
  • New Belgium Brewing presents this 3rd annual event featuring beer and short films.  Atlanta is one stop on an 18-city benefit tour, and 100 percent of the proceeds from beer sales during the Atlanta event will benefit the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. Enjoy 16 varieties of beer on tap available in 3 oz. samples, or a 12 oz. pour - and be inspired by short films created by fans. Remember to bring your government issued ID in order to purchase beer. Bring a picnic (low chairs or blankets recommended) or purchase food at the event. No outside beverages will be permitted. Films begin at dark.
  • Widely hailed as one of the best new plays on Broadway, this Atlanta premiere is a moving and often hilarious story of relationships, mid-life crisis, and friendship, from Pulitzer Prize-winner Donald Margulies. Sarah and James, a photojournalist and foreign correspondent, have been together for years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. When a bomb blast in Iraq sends them home, they are caught in a tug-of-war between returning to their dangerous, exhilarating careers and downshifting to the contentment of family life. To complicate matters, cohort and editor Richard is plotting to keep them home as he pursues a new simpler life with his much younger girlfriend Mandy.   

SAT – Sept. 15:

  • A men's health event with fun for the entire family. Sample tasty tailgate food. Get checked out. Free health screenings including blood pressure, BMI and prostate cancer screenings. Everyone who gets a screening will receive two free tickets to a Braves game (while supplies last).
  • Reservations are required for Atlanta BeltLine Tours and can be made after the 15th of each month for the following month's tour. Tours depart from and return to the Inman Park Marta Station with a brief stop in the West End for a bathroom break. There are no bathrooms at the Inman Park Station. Tours provide access to Bellwood Quarry, the future site of Westside Reservoir and Park. This stop will involve minimal walking. Water bottles are provided but lunch is not provided - participants are welcome to bring their own lunch or snacks. Book a tour here.
  • . The 15th Annual East Atlanta Strut will include five stages of live music, a comedy stage, an artists’ market, a free kids area, carnival stalls, community booths, food and drinks - and don't forget the Strut Parade beginning at 2 p.m. at the corner of Patterson and Glenwood and ending at the corner of Glenwood and Brownwood. A FREE manned cycle corral (provided by the event in partnership with Atlanta Bicycle Coalition) will be available - bicycles will not be permitted within the festival.  Only service dogs will be permitted.
  • Presented by the Friends of the Auburn Avenue Research Library, it celebrates the vision and talents of filmmakers of color. Features screenings of independent, national, and local films, panel discussions, Q&A sessions, and more.
  • During the Old Fourth Ward Challenge, teams of two head off on a scavenger hunt, deciphering clues that lead them throughout the neighborhood to restaurants, businesses, historical sites, and parks. This is a fundraising event benefiting the Fourth Ward Neighbors. Teams will be responsible for providing their own digital camera or camera phone. The Challenge will be held rain or shine. This year’s Challenge has two categories – By Foot or By Bike - with cash prizes to the top three teams in each category. Registration will close after 40 teams have signed up. Check‐in will open at 1 p.m. and the Challenge ends at 4 p.m. back at the Irwin Street Market with food and fun.
  • Hosted by the Musials, parents of Ella Grace, 4, and the Risslands, parents of Riley, 7, both of Alpharetta. Their children were born with CdLS, a rare genetic disorder that causes a variety of physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities. Guests can sample locally-brewed SweetWater beer and food from Slope's BBQ, as well as live music, complimentary brewery tours and a silent auction.
